haven't got much time to spare online nowadays. blame it for no internet connection at home and the nearest comfortable cybercafe wud mean to have to drive there by car. urgh, life sucks.
thanks for those who wished for my birthday a few days back! :D u guys rock my world, really! feeling a lil' mature now. [ya, rite] :P
sadly, i no longer have a -teen at the end of my age from now on.
well, bak kata izzati, bukan tua tapi matang. hehe. :P
i spent the last few days back in terengganu; balik kg sempena raya haji. it was great to meet all my relatives again and knowing that 3 of my cousins gave birth to very cute lil' babies. phew! :P
2 baby boys and 1 baby girl. cute-ness~!
today pulak, will be meeting a few friends of mine at putrajaya. we're going to tour the area by bicycles. hihi. seems like fun! :D
ok then, i gtg and get ready for breakfast now. i cud hear my stomach choiring. kesian dia. :P neways, thanks aisyah for lending me ur laptop (currently in aisyah's room at MMU). :)
p/s- i went shopping last week and it was super great! i must go to sogo and mid. again! :P
the last night at the Adelaide Tower Apartments :(
bye Adelaide for 2007 and say hello to Sydney. yeah baby! :)
...will be missing adelaide though [hmph, ive one whole yr to spend here again for 2008 ape. n more years to come!]
...will be super-duper missing this nice and cosy apartment!
just another 3 more days to go and i'll be reaching Malaysia.
Well anyways, as the Adelaideans might have already known, there was this super-GIGANTIC christmas tree being put up at the center of Victoria Square (a fake one la tapi!). if u go there at night, the tree is really beautiful with all the lights of different colours shining it up and on top of the tree there is also this bright 5 pointed yellow star. feeling bored of not knowing what to do (buhsan sesangat dah tgk movieees je keje), we decided to go to Vic Square amek2 angin and not to forget, snap some pics too! ;)
The next morning pulak, we headed our way to Port Adelaide to go for dolphin cruising. yeah, i know its summer and dolphins don't quite show themselves during this time of the year, but other ppl went there too a few days back and they said they SAW the dolphins. so, we went and hoped that we're lucky enough to be able too see those cute animals.
and unfortunately, we spent the 2 hours of cruising looking at the sea and watch the huge kapal kontena je. i still remember the names of those ships; 'coral ace' and 'maha ross'. hihi. =p
we waited and waited but still, there was no sign of dolphins at all (except on this one boat cruise la- their logo was a picture of a jumping dolphin =p)! lol.. =( well i guess we're not that lucky enough.
sooo murah gile! =) to name a few, books, hats, jeweleries, clothes, souvenirs, and etc.
hurgh. why now, the last Sunday spent in Adelaide for the year, do i know the existence of this place? dulu2 x pernah nak tahu. so, it seems that i can only start to shop next yr la kot. hihi. =p well, xde la ape sgt pun kat market tuh. mostly barang2 terpakai la. thinking of it, it somehow looks pretty much like the 'carboot sale' in UK. ;)
and today, just finished angkut2 barang ke rumah budak2 Norwood and simpan di situ for the time being - we're moving house next year. huhu. i'm really gonna miss Adelaide Tower so much!!! ;(
neways, thanx a bunch for those who helped! :)
something to note :
6 days to go!!!!!!!!!!
Happy Birthday to Fahmi,
Happy Birthday to you!
neways, Happy Birthday Ami bucukkk masaaammmm dear! =P
may you have a blast on your birthday! wish you all the best in life and may Allah bless you always! =)
Love you always~ =)
miss you sooooo much!
neways, to give a picture of what happened for the past week, here are some photos snapped during some of the events... =)
i was walking back home with my eyes shut - when there was no one around and i was sure that i wudn't bang into anything la. (forgot to bring along my shades. haih. just can't leave home without it nowadays)
dulu2, when it was winter i just wished that the weather wud be hot sooner. oh, really cant stand the chilly air but now, i just hoped that summer would end a.s.a.p! neva mind. i'm not goin' to be here anyway during the 3 months of summer. yuhuuu~ missin' malaysia sooo much! less than a month to go! :)
well, yeah i know. i've a month to go. other ppl just have another week left. *jeles*. padan muka tho! sape suruh beli tiket lambat daa..
n tomorrow, i've one more paper to kill and that is Engineering, Planning & Design. after that wud be Heat Transfer, the least favourite subject which will be on friday. [lambat gle okay!] n by that, officially marks the end of my freshman yr!
neways, about 2 days b4 kot, kecoh pasal BERSIH punye perhimpunan. i watched the video reporting about the incident n it was sooo dahsyat la. ppl fighting n roaring pe sume. haih. ape nk jadi la.
that's why i dislike politics.
I received this email from a friend and find it really hilarious! haha. take a break and enjoy!

The reason why a student fails is because the year ONLY has 365 days!
Typical academic year for a student:
There are 52 Sundays in a year, you know Sundays are for rest.
Days left 313.
2. Summer holidays
50 days where the weather is very hot and difficult to study.
Days left 263.
3. 8 hours daily sleep
130 days GONE..
Days left 141.
4. 1 hour for daily playing (good for health)
1 hour per day times 365 days means 15 days.
Days left 126.
5. 2 hours daily for food & other delicacies (chewing properly & swallowing)
this equals to 30 days
Days left 96.
6. 1 hour for talking (man is a social animal)
this means 15 days
Days left 81.
7. Exam days
at least, there are at least 35 days of exam per year.
Days left 46.
8. Quarterly, Half yearly and festival (holidays)
Balance 6 days.
9. For sickness
at least 3 days
Remaining days : 3.
10. Movies and functions
at least 2 days.
1 day left.
11. That 1 day is your birthday.
How can you study on that day??????!!!!!!!!!!
Balance : 0
"How can a student pass ?????"p/s- kinda logic but then, if everyone followed these, there'd be no one who'd pass! =p
"You are a great buyer. Thank you for making
my first selling item so great. A+++"
heee~ that was my 1st feedback from my 1st business deal on ebay. =) that feedback is really encouraging me to do more and more and more ebay-ing stuffs. adeii. dah la yesterday, i mistakenly bought something b4 realising that the price was in great britain pounds! and not in australian dollars! adeii. abis bankrupt! lucky me i won the bid for that item for only 0.1 pence [oops typo error! it's actually 0.1 pound]. haha. it was the postage that was expensive. *sigh*
neways, just finished doing some past year papers on Materials I. sooooo tired! not because of answering, but reading the answer scheme! gle horror punye handwriting! sapela yg tulis this thing..? urgh..tension2!
take a look and u will see..

p/s- good luck for all who're sitting for Materials I tomorrow.all d best!
pp/s- the title has nothing to do with this post. just countdown balik je! yippee! =p
1. after 10am there's no one at home until 6pm onwards as everyone goes melepak at the library
2. 1 jar of nescafe that usually takes around 2/3 months to finish, would now only take about 2/3 weeks
3. panadol tends to be a supplement that should be taken everyday
4. no movies or dramas watched during dinner
well, for all that are sitting for exams no matter where you are, i wish you all the very best of luck! may we all succeed in everything we do! ;)
Yesterday, i met the M'sian participants (UTM team) of the Solar Car Race Challenge [challenge: designing cars that only use solar power to move them, and race from Darwin to Adelaide which is around 3000km. phew! i heard that it took them 8 days to get to the finishing line! ] They were really a bunch of very funny and intelligent ppl. really had a great time talking to them! fyi, m'sia's team managed to get Top 10 ranking against other 40 (kot..) teams participating. gempakx!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO DAD!!!
May all your dreams come true and may Allah bless u always!
Lots of love from your daughter :)
since i'm no literature-person, i can't possibly write my own poem, therefore i copied the poem below from here and dedicate it especially for u! heee~
Or that I hadn't heard,
Life lessons that you taught to me,
But I got every word.
And that we'd grow apart,
But Dad, I picked up everything,
It's written on my heart.
The girl I am today;
You built a strong foundation
No one can take away.
And I'm very glad I did;
So here's to you, dear father,
From your forever grateful kid.
addiction : the state of being enslaved to a habit or practice or to something that is psychologically or physically habit-forming, as narcotics, to such an extent that its cessation causes severe trauma.
hobby : an activity or interest pursued for pleasure or relaxation and not as a main occupation
to tell you the truth during the past week, i've been doing a new activity.
i call it as "ebay-ing". :P every time i enter my room, i'd go to my lappy
and type "ebay". that was back then. now, i put ebay's link under my bookmarks toolbar. yesterday, istayed up all night browsing through various items on ebay. whereas today, i think i've opened the homepage more than 20 times! i had also bid on some items and unfortunately [or maybe fortunately?], most of the items, i lost to a much higher bidding! haha. boooo to me! :P just now, when i was doing an online quiz, i opened a new tab and went to ebay when i know i haven't finished answering yet! haih...
so what do you reckon? addiction or hobby?
haih. this is what happens when always procrastinating work. [ok. and also skipping lectures. therefore i need to do a whole lot of revision for the lectures i missed] serves me right!
just now, did some Heat Transfer tute. gosh! i spend more than an hour to solve only one question! and i haven't finished answering it yet. *sigh* it involves some how-did-the-scientist-ever-get-these?-he-must-have-a-
freaking-exceptional-natural-capacity-of- intellect type of equations. i wonder how Dr Zeyad can possibly ask us to memorise all those equations for final exam!
here, take a look at some of the equations:
hey liyana. and what do you think you are doing now? writing a post even when you know you have 2 more tutes to do? ish!
As on Saturday (5pm till 9pm) my housemates and I were organising an open house, Friday night was spent cooking all night long till morning. huhu. it was really tiring preparing dishes for approximately 100+ ppl!! Gosh! sangat2 penat! that was my 1st time cooking for so many ppl. haha. nasib baik semua cukup rasa. hihi. :P the menu for that night was Mee Bandung, Nasi Impit + kuah kacang & Rendang. the Adelaide tower guys pun join gak by preparing deserts. Rumah Munir did Kek batik, puding roti + custard & some kueh raya cookies. while rumah Husen made Kueh jagung & fruit custard. =) all the foods were totally dishes! tribute to everyone who made the night a total SUCCESS!! =)
By the way, early 1st Syawal, Izzati, Izy, Afiq & I made our way to Adelaide Mosque to perform our Aidilfitri prayer. after some bits of snapping pix and bersalam2an, we headed back home and did some house cleaning for our open house later that night. Right after Zuhur, we then went to Najmi's house. their foods were awesome! lets take a peek at the pix worth looking below:
5. siap utk dibakar 6. siap utk dimakan!!
anyhow, its only 5 more days till raya. but, i'm sooo feeling heartless. kalau x, if nak raye mesti cam hepi n sgt2 x sabar semacam. but over here, wif all the assignments to do, work load yg sgt belamabak, i sometimes forget about raye. uwaa. sdeynye! its my 1st time celebrating it far away from my family. miss sgt2 mereka yg dekat rumah. :(
x dpt nak gi kutip duit raye...
x dpt nak gi jln2 umah org n makan2...
x dpt nak balik kg...
neways, raye cni pun ok what. nak bg rase cam suasana raye, my housemates n i prepared some kueh-mueh. eg: karipap. mase open house pose ari tuh, karipap hot stuff woo.. :P bcoz of dat, we made some more. hihi. :) dis weekend try masak rendang lak. tgk either jadi ke x. hoho.
sempena raye nk dekat sgt dah, I want to take dis oppoturnity to wish everyone SELAMAT HARI RAYA AIDILFITRI MAAF ZAHIR DAN BATIN. n to anyone who knows me, mintak maaf dari hujung rambut ke hujung ke hujung kaki for all the wrong doings dat i have done either intentionally or not.
[2 months + 4 days till i'm off to m'sia!!~]
Gosh. I am TOTALLY addicted to this series. its a korean drama entitled 'My Girl' starring Lee Dong Wook, Lee Da Hae & etc. yesterday, i watched the series from 10pm till 6am straight x tido.huhu. hiysh, dorot jahat! she was the one who introduced me the series. waaa~ neways, the drama was fantastic. funny, romantic and very sweeeeeet!~ ;) there was this one episode (episode 15 if i'm not mistaken) which was really sad till i cried madly! T_T
as i have just finished the last episode (epi 16), i straight away download ALL the soundtracks. they're all pretty cool especially never say goodbye (video above) and Sarang Eun Him Deun Ga Bwa. for those of u who haven't watch the series, u can stream it online by clicking here.
p/s: Seoul Gong Chan (Lee Dong Wook) who's the hero of this drama is sooo handsome. ngaa~ sangat suke!!! *twinkling eyes*
pp/s: to dorot : Gong Chan aku nye! x kire! x kire! :P
yesterday, i changed my blog template again. huh. i'm just bored with the old one coz its toooo black and dull. ngaaa~ i spent some time searching for new templates but none were interesting. so, i just use the templates provided by blogger. senang pun senang. and i dont need to use the classic template which is troublesome.
mmm. by the way, its the 8th day of Puasa, 22 days to Hari Raya and 2 MONTHS 22 DAYS OFF TO MALAYSIA. oh i just can't wait! ;)
check out this song. its totally cool!!~~
past maghrib. its officially 1st of Ramadhan. just now, had terawih with afiqah. tomorrow after fajr, is going to be the 1st day of fasting. the 2nd time fasting overseas and the 1st time fasting sooooo far away from my family. uwaa. i'm soooo missing home! :'(
Usually, after dinner my dad would tell everyone to niat puasa. n after maghrib all of us would walk to the surau nearby to perform terawih.
during the day, my dad would take all of us to a bazar ramadhan and my siblings and i would choose and pick the kuehs that we want. kueh caramel, tepung pelita, onde-onde, etc. urgh..i'm soooo gonna miss all those foods! :'(
then, when breaking the fast, all of us would sit together and dad will read the doa while everyone will listen obediently. kurma would be the 1st to be eaten. dad always grumbles when any of us eats anything else 1st. haha. miss those moments~! T_T
for sahur, mum would be the early one to wake up and after she finishes cooking she has to do the hardest job of all which is getting everyone up. the hardest one would be dad! haha. no offense dad~! ngeee... :P
neways, even though its sad to be far away from my loved ones, i still have my friends here to enjoy the precious moments of fasting month and also raya nanti. huhu. spring break which is soon to come will be spent to make kueh raye and testing for masak2 for hari raya nanti! ngeee~ :D
for all muslims out there, selamat berpuasa dan marilah mengerjakan amalan ibadat sebanyak mungkin di bulan yang mulia ini. ;)
for those of u who want to try the test, click HERE.
Such a dreamer! Even when you're stuck in a rut, you still reach for the stars. Happy-go-lucky and trusting you may be, but silly you're not — you've definitely got a practical side. And no matter what the future holds for you, we know you'll have fun along the way!
neways, the night started with a lion dance and then as usual followed by speeches from vvip & vip. then, there was a multimedia presentation but bcoz the screen was soo kecik n my table was somewhere at the very back, x dpt la nk concentrate. it was then followed by a band performance which presented 'Dunia Batinku', 'Permaisuri' and 'Crumbs'. It could have been better if xde problem dgn PA system yg agak kucar-kacir that night. To see the band performance click here.
ppl started eating and bile tiba our table's turn to get food, it was really frustrating when we knew that there were no sate-s left. Ggrr.. Luckily, kueh sagu still ade. the performance for that night was continued by a sketsa which included silat performance, m'sian traditional dances, etc. To see the silat performance click here. After that, ade dikir barat. i think that was the best performance on that night. ;)
Despite of the certain problems yg mengkucar-kacirkan malam tuh, i still managed to have fun till the very end. Lagi2 la i won the 1st lucky draw for that night. hihi. it was shocking when i heard my number being called. during that time, i was with the others lining up to get food. hihi.
every fridays in august, ade jualan bbq kat uni lawns. n one of the fridays, ade malaysian carnival. jual2 m'sian foods n also promoting tahun visit m'sia 2007. foods were nice (kuey teow goreng, nasi beriani, sate, kueh-mueh, roti jala, nasi ayam, nasi lemak, etc) even though ade yg very expensive. sate 1 cucuk 1 dolar. adei. mahal giler~!
as for the last saturday, which is on the 25th, there was Merdeka Amazing Race. 15 groups participated and my group managed to get number three. yeheee~! ;) the race was really fun n also exhausting! ppl were like staring at us when we ran across streets. haha. ade once tu, we asked this couple where this one place was. n couple tu siap nak offer lift lagi. hehe~ at the 3rd checkpoint which is at Marion Shopping Centre, we received a task to find the price of a list of items. i think that was the best n fun task out of 4 tasks. it was really challenging nk carik items tuh n also macam2 ragam salesperson kat every kedai yg kitorang masuk tuh. ade yang siap bwk tunjuk satu2 kat mane brg2 tuh sume. ade yg siap tolong carik sama2, etc.
okay, enuf of that, yesterday 30th august ade countdown merdeka + bbq + upacara penyampaian hadiah. well, it was quite fun even though it was rainy n we had d bbq under the rain. huhu~
well, i gues that's all for now. will be back for the merdeka grand dinner update~! till then, taa~
moring, tgk afiq siang ikan bilis. i didn't know dat we have to siang ikan bilis b4 goreng. myb my mum selalu beli yg dah siap kot. neways, tgk afiq wat cam leceh gle nk kene belah dua n kuarkan isi2 ikan tuh. dah lew ikan bilis kecik2 comey2. fuh!

mangosteen, one of my super-duper fave fruit pulak costs 1.75 dollar each! haha. tinggal harapan je la nk beli kat sini. kalo beli pun buat hiasan je la. heh. =p
neways, just now when i was melaghakan diri melayan friendster, i went to this one person's blog (under friendster la). saje je usha2 actually. scrolling down her page and reading her posts and suddenly FUH!! i was really shocked to know that this person had actually coppied my posts and pasted it to her blog! aaa..the posts that i had spent a whole lot of time in finding ideas and expressing them into words! hiysh! plagiarism gile2 la! urghh..tu dah kire menceroboh my blog's copyright! bukan setakat satu post, it was a few posts okay! to this someone, come on la..write ur own post. kalo x, why do u need to have ur own blog if copy paste ideas org lain? n don't think that i didn't realise that u copied mines after u have changed a few words or deleted some words which has no relation with you. like changing 'as' to 'when' or perhaps deleting names that i have used such as 'izzati' or 'afiq'? haih. pliz la. if nk copy pun, u don't have to make me notice it. ni sje je nk bongkarkan knape?
