DRAMA POWER
Thursday, December 4, 2014


Yes! A quick one, I promise.

All thanks to watching TONTON today and yesterday. Finally there's one drama totally owned my screen, my heart and my brain.




ZAHIRA. (Slot Samarinda, TV3)

Here's Adi Putra at his best after almost a year of being silent. Masihkah kau ingat, the scandal of Adi Putra and bebird and isteri orang and what else? Hehe. Jujurinnya, aku sudah maafkan kamu. Hahaha. Ish lepas isu scandal dia haritu, memang tak boleh nak tengok muka dia langsung sebab macam ermm geli, pervert. Hiks.

But anyway, WELCOME BACK ADI PUTRA. You have been missed dearly. I loveee Zahira, it is haunting, disturbing and ultimately... a total addicting. This drama reconfirmed to me the level of hotness (off the charts!) of Adi Putra. Ok, he had a weird moustache but still hot nonetheless. Hehe.

Plus the chemistry between the leads (Adi and Zara Zya) is ahmazingg. For some reason the two of them just... worked! Oh god can't wait for tonight yalls. Episode 4. Sobs sobs. Long wayyyy to go. Ehhh, tapi aku ni bukan nak exam ke? Haihhh.

SCANDI
Wednesday, December 3, 2014




Eppsss. It has been a while! Busyyyyy, soooo busy with exams and library and books and depression. Sobs sobs. Family, study, anger, sleep, money, love. I wish I knew which goes where. Its a 28 year learning cycle with no end in sight. Sigh.

Well my first exam was okay, but donno lah. Harap pass je ni. And my friend posted this on her Instagram;
Usaha itu wajib, tawakkal itu aqidah. Apapun keputusan, ia tetap satu kejayaan.
Semoga Allah tahu aku dah berusaha. :') Nak nangis please! Blame it on the hormones.

Anyway, my current obsession : Scandinavia. Hehe. I guess a tiger doesn't change her spots, or at least, change it easy kan? Hiks. So, we finally decided to take a teensy weensy step in getting the ball rolling.

More on this later ok. Have a nice day ahead lovelies!

I MISS!
Monday, November 24, 2014




My brother & I, Zaanse Schans, Amsterdam

3 weeks!

Having everything pushed back and being able to focus on one thing; EXAM. But exams being exams la kan. They have always been difficult and scary. But this is the mother of all exams. Sobs. Kena passsssss please. I'm tired of doing the same thing, twice. Hmmm. 

Then, we will be having our family reunion in Frankfurt. Honestly, organizing the family trip for 20 people stresses me out too. But I enjoy doing this nonetheless. The fact that my parents are coming, it makes me soooo happy. 

And I have been giving it some thought for the past few days, why do people sometimes treat strangers better than the people they know? SENTAPS! Dan sangat menyakitkan hati. Strange, this life we live nowadays.

Anyway, no more babbles about exams, now I'm going to pulun. Wish me luck and please pray for me :).

Well maybe, life is wonderful.




My brother & I, Arc de Triomphe, Paris


Can't wait to see them! Besos ~

THE ONE WHERE FIDA MEETS ROSS
Thursday, November 20, 2014





Yes, you read that right. The one where FIDA meets ROSS! Hiks. It's a dream come true bebeh!

It has been 20 years since the first episode of FRIENDS aired and we never forget the time where Ross and Rachel were kissing for the first time! Hahaha. Gile!





My most fav scene! Hehe.


And we finally had our first visit to the "Central Perk" café  on 31 October 2014. I've always wanted to post up the Central Perk Liverpool photos soonest possible but didn't due to time constraint. So, here goes!





I guess what I like the most about Central Perk is its relaxed atmosphere. Not too crowded, perhaps it was Friday and I could never visualize how busy will it be during weekends. And here's a peek of the inside. 






Hiiiiiiii Dr. Ross Geller! Soooo great to finally meet you baby! Hahaha. Ya ampun, gile kau ni. Hiks. I love love love their lovely, lovely interior. They show FRIENDS re-run everyday and some people can even quote the whole 10 seasons! Jeling #anokkelatedibirminghae. Hahahaha. Tu lagi gila. Memang kakiberangan kau ni kan. Ahaks.




It's just SPECIAL. So iconic, even though it is not exactly a replica of the Central Perk from the tv show, but the vibe is very similar nonetheless. And the coffee is amazing too! Cumanya, the service is a little slow but waiting is not a problem for me. Sambil borak-borak kosong je lagipun. Hiks. Dicerca dan mencerca je konsepnya. 




Ohh it was Halloween night so gigih la dua orang ni berhalloween bagai. Tapi scary ke masalahnya. Hahaha. Yang jejans tu lembut sikit, FYI. Hiks.





They have some merchandise for sale too! And as a big FRIENDS fan (like most people are), I've bought Central Perk mug for myself hehe. 




Sooo, you have seen that orange couch thousand times, have you not? Well of course we sat there for almost 2 hours or maybe 3 hours on that lovely big couches. We could have stayed longer and we even went to that cafe twice, on the same day! Pagi dan petang ok. Hiks.






Finally, one for the album! Hiks. Picture credit yang gopro semua goes to @KAKIBERANGAN! Kamsamhamida la orang kata. Merci!

Overall, brilliant place! So, if you love FRIENDS, this is A MUST.

REALITY
Tuesday, November 18, 2014


I don't know what to type really. Just felt like blogging. And I managed to squeeze in one lecture of Corporate Reporting worth of studying for tonight. Not bad for one who is sleep-deprived kan? Hehe. Well, things have changed so much. I have to admit.




I can hardly believe that I have been in the UK for almost a year now! It was exactly 9 months ago when I was travelling solo for the first time and my flight transit at Dubai International Airport for nearly 24 hours before departing on the next day to Birmingham International Airport. How time flies! 




And I haven't heard a live azan since then. Sobs. But, when I was in Bosnia and Herzegovina last month, I can hear the azan for subuh and probably just that I haven't heard a live azan for almost a year, I found it so wonderful. I think this counts as one of the wonderful things about staying overseas. We appreciate things that we take for granted back in Malaysia.

So yes, I'll be back in 3 monthsssss. Too much about my life in Birmingham that I would miss. And to be honest, I'm not ready to go home just yet! Sobs. Reality hits hard.
