MY USUAL ROUTE - BIRMINGHAM IN A NUTSHELL
Tuesday, May 20, 2014





Hmmm, I think it's pretty safe to say that I'm getting old. Sobs. Well, not old in the age sense so much but more in terms of I tend to appreciate every little things in my life now. Things I see, things that catch my eyes as I roll through life. Oh gosh I'm so gonna miss my life here. One year can never be enough. Hahaha. Lupa daratan nih!





Thankfully my school is in the city centre! And the weather lately has been beautiful alhamdulillah. Shine bright like a diamond! Hiks. Summer is coming baby! And goodbye my gloomy days. In about 2 weeks, we will all be celebrating our summer break. Can't wait for that but some good things don't come easy. Hahaha. Exam is around the corner! Sobsss. Why is professional paper so damn hard? Jenuh sangat study tapi my brain sometimes (most of the time) doesn't function properly. Sign of ageing, maybe.





It's almost midnight and I'm still up and about. Baru habis belek-belek kerja sekolah untuk esok. Belek je lah tapinya. Haha. And I had quite the productive evening. Went to Tesco after class ( I always go to Tesco almost everyday, OMG) and bought some groceries, ayam lah, hot dog lah, all Halal no worries haha. The best thing about Birmingham or some people might call it Birminghae (hint : #anokkelatedibirminghae, John) bahahaha so #villagepeople tapi the correct pronounciation is Birmingggammmm. Hehe. Ok sorry, the best thing about Birm is; there are ample of halal food and restaurants here, alhamdulillah.

Depan rumah je ada ayam Saqib yang sangat sedap nak mamps but I'm on diet now so hanya mampu pandang sepi je. Tesco pun berjarak beberapa langkah je depan rumah and they are selling halal meat, it makes my life a whole lot easier. Yang tak bestnya, kau tak pandai masak je! Sad. Duk la asyik masak benda yang sama je everyday. Boring. Now kan, semenjak dah pandai buat bergedil ayam ni ataupun Brummies panggil chicken potato nugget katanya, hahaha selalu je lah duk membeli minced chicken 500gm and gigih buat bergedil. 500gm ni basically boleh dua kali makan je, and sungguh enak ye kawan-kawan! Hahaha. Esok nak buat lagi.




Bull RIng Shopping Centre

Speaking of Birminggggamm, tahukah anda it's the UK second largest city? Haha gituh. At first I was offered to study in Manchester tapi setelah fikir panjang, I want to follow #anokkelatedibirminghae bahahaha. Rasakan. Aku akan bikin hidup kau sengsara. Haha.

And I think one of the Birm's landmarks is the Bull Ring Shopping Centre. Perfectly located in the centre of Birmingham. It is spacious and I don't have time to explore the whole Bull Ring just yet but Selfridges is hugeeee. Kadang-kadang after class, selalu sangat cuci mata dekat Bull Ring which is not good to your pocket. Haha.




Library of Birmingham 


This is Europe's biggest library! It is located in the heart of Birmingham and Kaplan Financial Birmingham is just next to this building. Tak sempat nak round habis lagi, too big, but I admire the architecture and the interior design of this library. Hopefully I have some time to wander around like a tourist nanti. Hehe. And I always shalat here sebab they have proper surau for girls. Study belum pernah sebab the best place to study is my attic! Hahaha.




And that white building, that's my school peeps. Tapi not the entire building, Kaplan just occupy 2 floors je kot, if I'm not mistaken.




Symphony Hall Birmingham





My usual route to class everyday :)



Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery

Victoria Square Birmingham

I never get bored of my usual route. There's always street musicians with their instruments everywhere. Macam dalam drama and I'm the main actress. Haha. Tengah-tengah jalan all alone, otak melayang entah pergi mana, then ada pulak background music. Mulalah aku duk berangan jadi Mya Zara dalam cerita Love You Mr. Arrogant. Hehe. Last week kan, one of the buskers played "Where Do I Begin" and I got teary-eyed. Such a beautiful melody. Sometimes you just have to stop, listen and appreciate.




But well, this is life. You can't always get what you want.
