Random

Last Summer, I came back to the UK early with Fareed. Then, I moved out from my old house. He helped me with the moving. It was  tiring because I had a lot of stuff, no kidding! & because our travelling and commimuting with the jet lagging, it doubled the tiredness. By 8pm everything is done, so to reward him, I planned to cook. So I cooked. And let me tell you something. It happens every single time I am tired. My cooking will not be a success. It's either the chicken were overcooked, or undercooked or hangus. 

So that particular day, my nasi goreng was something wrong and the omelette hangus teruk that we had to throw it away. I was so stressed and feel like crying because I was tired and embarassed. I have been meaning to impress him. But this guy, Fareed, was smiling all the way. I asked him "Kenapa you senyum senyum ni. Tak sedap sangat sangat ke?". Then he replied, "Hahaha takdelah (menipu je lebih), you're the girl I want to marry." 

I think he was thinking habislah perut aku. Masak tak sedap and all. But it was a good pondering hehe. 

I dont know why I am writing this. Maybe because it's international women's day and I came across, "Women is great. You give them groceries, they make a meal out of it". Hahaha even if it's hangus and tak sedap, still a meal. 

And probably because, Fareed reached Malaysia 12hrs ago and he texted he reached home and visited the grave. And he texted asking for me but I was sleeping soundly for 12hrs and didnt realised his text when I promised him that he can contact me whenever he wants, that I will be there for him. His father passed away two days ago. Al fatihah to Uncle Azmi bin Abdul Samad. May Allah bless his soul and forgive him. And may he be amongst the righteous! Aamiin!

Spring with the Flowers, M

Hi assalamualaik' yalls,

One week of the Spring term has passed and boy was it hectic. Mondays are the worst. Full class from 10am-5pm with only one hour break in the middle and including the meeting for FYP. And you know as much as I love getting feedbacks from my supervisor albeit his harsh way in conveying the messages, it will always make me think and realise (of course, sometimes in fear). But all is well at the moment, insyaAllah.

So far I managed it will very little tears and disappointment (still learning to be stronger than ever ok, so pardon me huhu and and... it helps me to sleep even faster at night haha). I'm trying to minimise my dependence in sharing my problems with humans but just to my one and only god, Allah! I find sharing worries with people do not do much help. They can only listen (that is, if they are willing) and say "I understand".

But they dont..... so yeah.

Anyways, I am so proud of myself for keeping true to my new year's resolution! I am and will continue being positive, come what may :) Enough of self pity, misery and unnecessary worries last year. It is my time to shine like a jewel under pressure, like my dad always refer me to hehe <3

The rest of the week like Tuesdays are gonna end late because class starts in the afternoon. I'm looking for two hours class every Thursdays and Fridays but since the deadline for FYP report is around the corner, the free times are much filled with labs and analysing and cracking my head to get a better results.

One thing for sure, I learnt that in order to succeed and survive this phase, now, I had to care less of people and it actually numbs me. It's sad because it kinda means my expressiveness is taken away. However, if it makes me more happy and worry less, I will. For example, I usually like to share the small small things but I think some people find it trivial to enjoy with me. Not saying I will not enjoy the little things anymore. But it's just that I will enjoy it alone from now on. Be happy with just me.

To a positive life ahead; I will bloom like the magnolia in Spring, even the slightest wind will not shatter me but instead it serenades the surrounding with its glory.

NYE

Hi yall,

So I just got back from Cardiff and before that I celebrated NYE in London. Wasnt the greatest experience because my goodness - the crowd and big tall people, cant even get through them! Fuh.

I've got quite few to share but pffft, time envies. It's all separated day events. A day we went to Winter Wonderland like finallyyyy in the final year haha and the next day we celebrated the NYE at the Primrose Hill like 15mins walk from Camden Town underground station. But best to say, I think it will be worth the rush and crowd near London Bridge or Tower Bridge or Big Ben because yknow the firework view's good. The cold, it's pretty much the same everywhere. In Primrose... well if you dont mind to see just small fireworks haha go there then!

So let the picture talks :) (and no firework picture cuz hell yeah, it was that small and far to capture even when you zoomed in the camera pfffft!)

5 Nov

Assalamualaikum old folks,
and helloooo there everyone hehe :D

So I just came back from a night walk. So it's 5th of November aka Guy Fawkes. It's a celebration by the British to memperingati kejatuhan gun powder treason that occurred long time ago. So basically this Fawkes guy was planning to go against the government during that era and was caught bringing a gun powder to explode the (kingdom?) I supposed. His head was chopped and diarak at the whole city. The tagline for this event is always, "Remember, remember the fifth of November". Now during the modern days, they celebrate it with bonfire, burning tables and chairs and also having fireworks. In UK, fireworks are forbidden except for times like this. So you can actually see lots of beautiful fireworks all around the city especially like where we spend our night - Park Hill, overlooking a part of Sheffield.

The nights tarted when we wanted to go and see the Christmas Market because it just started. Well when Mira said we're going at 7pm, I doubted myself cause yknow that would be a surprise if there's any outdoor activities pass 5pm in the UK haha. But then I just went along cause I was so bored sitting in the room. And... I was right! Everything was closed except for the beer popped up shop. So we decided to eat somewhere else. But the real question was... where? Some suggestions were Noodle Doodle, Noodle Inn and more but we end up going to OISOI! Omg this is the best decision ever made yalls! The food was well presented, the taste was wallah and it was quick with good service! There were 7 of us and 5 decided to eat nasi. So we shared lauk - Steamed Seabass, Chicken Kungpau and Fried Squid, Scallops and King Prawn. MashaAllah the most satisfied dine out ever in Sheffield. I may sound exaggerating but no my love, no! It really was the best because the price was sensible with the portion and taste. Because we shared, each of us paid GBP 12.80. Are you kidding me? It was so goooood that I'd pay more for it! Hahaha ok moving on...

Then by the time we finished eating, it was 8.45pm if I'm not mistaken. So we decided to go to a higher place in Sheffield to just enjoy our night. And being near the train station, the Park Hill was the closest highland there. Oklah, saw lots fireworks from afar and a few rockets burnt near our place. So comel because the rockets popped like kentuts hahaha and we will wuuuu and awwwwh to support the guys for trying to entertain us haha. And mind you it was 3degrees but felt like 1degree. MashaAllah sejuk gila ok, siap pakai leggings, thermal socks and mafla. STILL UNBEARABLE! But enjoyed the chill session anyway haha.

Then we proceeded to go have some photoshoot at the Peace Garden. Please lah it's one of the beautiful places in Sheffield and not always youre out at the city at night kan. So we went on capture here and there anddddd memories. Then we went through Divison Street having our own sweet time. Stopped here and there to enjoy the near fireworks before I said I wanted to play at the playground for awhile. Yayyyy got to feel and main. Because I've been needing to play to let the stress out haha. It's been so depressing lately. And after like 10mins, we finally go back to Broomhall haha. 

So much love tonight. I felt like half of my stress I had vanished. And I just called my old folks at home, another half of the stressness went off. Now it's tidur time. But let me say it again, this is definitely one of the most highlighted nights in my Sheffield uni life. How small things can make an impact hehe. Alhamdulillah thanks ya Rabb for easing me. Toodles yall!











Love,
Mia.

The Start

Assalamualaikum, hi everyoneeee!!

Im sorry I made too much promises. Want to update abt this lah that lah but i didnt! Hahahaha baddd time management i have here. Gotta change right!? Lol

So anyways, i'll just summarise how my first week of year 4 went. 

STUDIES
Well apparently I only have 3 modules for autumn term because I dropped one and changed it to another in summer term making it 4 (dreadful memorising) modules for me to endure. & apart of the modules, i have my final year project (FYP) to deal with. So you can pretty much tell, I'm a lil bit free this term but omygosh freaking busy next term. But whatever, I'll definitely enjoy it since it's my last year. And as for my FYP, for now, I have to read & summarise 10 journals in less than 10 days. So yeah, so called free huh?! Haha

SOCIALS
Well went to freshers' fair just for the sake of collecting all the free gifts and goodie bags hahaha. I must say that this year's was by fsr the best fair I've went to. So many booths that could actually really benefit us students. Not just lame ones. & suprisingly, there was wilko and morrisons. Like whattt two supermarkets together? In an event? Wow! Even got a packet of free spags. Yay save money no need to buy for groceries hehe! And ohhh, there was even Asos van. They offered free customised tote bag. Of course I will sign up, you silly you! Hahaha cemtu kan sanggup lol. And the best part is it's not that packed that you cant move at all. Like what happened last year oh god. And like past years, got free dominos (but i wasnt that excited anymore to queue for 3/4 times for free slices! Lol!).



Then there was the student lock in night in meadowhall. I was contemplating about going there. In the end.... i went! (Of course, or else takkan im writing about it haha & i just went to the city earlier with Farah, for some window shopping lol). That Thursday my allowance wasnt in yet so I mampu untuk tengok and adore je. But truthfully I was there just for the experience since Ive never been into one. Well, there was so many booths to try like fake carpool karaoke, soccer, virtual reality and more. I tried VR tho, twas cool!! It would be even better if the straps were tight and wont slide down with every single movement i made admiring the fake reality hahaha. I choose the space experience. And it shook when the satellite exploded. The realitiness hmmm i would give 7 out of 10. You might feel a slight dizziness after that. We actually have to sign a disclaimer hehe. 







WEEKEND!
So on Saturday, I went out with Lulu for brunch and some catch up sess. Talked about what we did on summer and typical life and studies. Then i spend the whole evening in the IC cuz well.... FYP! And my laptop charger decided to fail me the exact time i wanted to start doing it hehe. & no more procrastination, had to go to the library. And that night I went to the freshers welcome party with the Havelock mates hehe. Food by lemakmanis was spicy af but salright. Hahahah not until this morning that it backfires. Sakit do perut hahaha berapa kali trip pergi tandas dah. Well anyways it's Sunday now and im supposed to start my reading already but nahhh. Lol no lah, I'll start very sooon! The weather's not helping!

Meet Oluchi Emenika or Lulu, for short.


What life? Hmmm haha

Final Home Called Havelock

Assalamualaikum folks,

So i just finished moving my stuffs into my new house. The final house in Sheffield, finally. Feels so fast lah huh. Rasa macam baru semalam datang Sheffield. Aiyaa but whatever it is, we gotta cherish the moments ayte?! :)

Gg do pindah rumah. Dah lah baru balik from Austria travelling. (I'll blog about that later okay?) Luckily i have my dearest boyfriend and classmate to help me out with it. Thanks Fareed and Zahir! 😛👊🏼  Five trips using Yafai's trolley hahaha yknow me ever so many stuff. All important okayyyy 😅 (yeah i know i know, dont give me the face 😛). Cant imagine not having the trolley haha bless you Yafai :)

Alhamdulillah pretty satisfied with everything tho. Cuz i actually gambled saying yes to this house. It was last minute decision. Never even viewed this house haha. Got the front room with an okay view :) Feels more like a neighbourhood. & this house has 2 toilets and showers. Very very plus point okay! Hahahaha & landlord, Mr Asif ( also my previous' house landlord) changed the carpet. Terbenam je kaki dekat carpet tu bila menapak. Lovely jubbly!! Also our curtains are pink and velvet! Gotta love Mr Asif for being understanding man. Love you lots man! God bless you!!

I got good feeling for this house. Keep the positive vibes coming home! Well till then, my stuff cant unpack themselves dont they haha. Bye!

Just a portion of my importante stuffs hehe
