Happenings

It's been a long time since I wrote anything in this blog...the last time I wrote was like 2 months ago...haha...since then, didn't write any long posts...so well, here I plan to write all the things (well, almost all...) that happened...the 1st thing I wanna write is about our weekend in Kelantan. Me, Ayah, Mak, Kakngah, Aimi, Aida and Nenek went to Kelantan on 30 July 2010...Kaklong was back in Malaysia to attend Syurahbil's wedding...but she was just staying in Kelantan, tak sempat nak balik Johor...so like Ayah said, "She can't come to Johor, so we'll bring Johor to her!" Hahaha....

On the 29th July, Mak and I went to KL to pick up Nenek and Aimi. But before that, we stopped by Kampung to pick up some rambutans....hehe...dekat 2 plastik we all kutip...hoho...juicy rambutans...after that, we went and picked up Aimi and went to Nenek's house in TTDI. Spent the night there, after Subuh we made our way to KLIA...Ayah was in Melaka attending a meeting a day before and we met in KLIA to wait for Kaklong and Abang Long. Their plane landed at 9.00 AM and we met them at the Medan Selera....Met Layth for the first time since December last year! Wow...dah semakin berisi...hehe...Kaklong bought us presents and guess what I got? An iPod Touch!!! WOW!!! Thank you Kaklong!!!! Hehehe....didn't expect such a cool gift...hehehe....Mak got a brand new handphone...HTC HD2 man...hehe...cool!

So then we went jalan-jalan in Putrajaya...Kaklong said she had never been to Putrajaya...ingat nak pergi Taman Botani...but unfortunately it was closed due to some renovations....huhu...So we went to Masjid Putrajaya and ate lunch there...then we jalan-jalan all around Putrajaya...the buildings there were awesome! It like being in another country...haha....

Then it was time to go back to the airport and wait for our flight to Kota Bharu. Long story short, we arrived in Kota Bharu, took the rented car and straight to the hotel where we will be staying...Khalifa Inn at Wakaf Che Yeh. The owner of the hotel was Ayah's old schoolmate. The room was satisfying because it was big. That night, Kakngah and Aida arrived as they had to take a later flight as Aida had school and Kakngah was working until 7 PM. We all  went to pick up them at the airport. The reason we had to stay in a hotel was that Tok Ayah and Nenek Cek were both in Beijing...

The kenduri was Saturday afternoon. In the meantime, we went to Pantai Cahaya Bulan to kill some time. Then went straight to Kubang Kerian to attend the kenduri. After eating, we borrowed Layth and took him jalan-jalan....first stop: Rantau Panjang. On the way back, we drove by Tok Ayah's house. Balik Kelantan kalau tak singgah rumah Tok Ayah, memang tak sah...hehehe...Then we went back to the hotel to rest. That night, Makcik Rohani invited us to eat dinner at their house.

On Sunday, at first we planned to take our family photo. But unfortunately, that plan was canceled due to some unavoidable problems. So we decided to eat lunch instead. Then, the most unfortunate thing happened. Our rented car was broken down. I guess the engine was to hot. So we pulled over in front of the fire station. Ayah called the rental car company. They said they will come and bring a replacement car. While waiting, we ate lunch at a nearby cafeteria. About half an hour later, the car arrived and what surprise! They gave us this Mitsubishi Truck! WOW~ and a Proton Waja. Jakun kejap naik truck tu. Tok Ayah and Nenek Cek was already home as they arrived back in Malaysia that morning. So we went to Tok Ayah's house before going to the airport to fly back to KLIA.

We arrived in KLIA and went back home to Johor....

The Wait is Finally Over!

Damages

 most of you all know, I was involved in a car accident last week. Don't feel like writing the whole story though...but here are some images of the damages to the car.


The Fever Is Back!



Mukhayyam 2010

Mukhayyam 2010. Tarikhnya 28 Mei sampai 30 Mei 2010...seminggu sebelum mukhayyam tu terjadi kejadian yang hampir membuatku tidak dapat mengikuti mukhayyam. Kaki bengkak and sakit nak mati. Bangun-bangun tidur kaki sakit gila! Nak gerak pun tak boleh. Haiyya....macam mana ni? Pergi jumpa Doktor Maimunah dekat Sri Skudai. Dia kasi ubat bengkak and ubat sakit sendi. Hoho...terpaksa tak pergi Solat Jumaat sebab sakit, nak jalan pun tak mampu...huhuhu...A few days after that kaki semakin OK tapi still sakit kalau nak gerak. Jalan dah boleh lah.

Then hari Rabu pergi Hospital Sultanah Aminah. Pergi jumpa Doktor Wan. Dia check-check then dia suruh pergi kasi darah and x-ray. Results 9 Jun nanti baru tahu. In the meantime, dia kasi ubat painkillers and ubat sapu. 

So Jumaat tu mukhayyam start. Nasib baik start malam, ada lah masa untuk rehatkan kaki dulu sebelum kena "seksa" time mukhayyam....hahaha....Lepas dah siap packing semua, siap-siap lah nak gerak ke Sekolah Hidayah. Pergi dengan Kakngah. Sekali terlupa nak bawa sekali ubat painkillers....huhuhu....nak patah balik dah terlambat. Start pukul 8.00 PM. Lepas dah tiba di sekolah, terus daftar nama and tunggu peserta-peserta yang lain sampai. Bila ramai dah sampai, semua diminta untuk kumpul dekat dewan atas. Ada taklimat dan lain-lain. After that, semua peserta lelaki turun ke musolla untuk sesi ice-breaking, berkenalan dengan peserta-peserta lain. Walaupun ramai yang dah kenal, tapi ada juga yang belum. Banyak aktiviti dilakukan...best! Dalam pukul 11.30 PM tu, semua naik balik ke dewan atas untuk taklimat tentang program esoknya. Setiap kumpulan akan dibekalkan dengan at least satu laptop and kena guna Google Earth untuk cari lokasi checkpoint. Kena sampai checkpoint akhir paling lambat pukul 10.00 AM. Kalau lebih dari tu, kena denda dengan kem komandan...hehe...my teammates were: Me, Basyir, Ahmad Qahhar, 'Esamuddin, Syarifuddin, Khalid, Afiq, Edi and Nas. Lepas taklimat, semua kena gerak ke masjid untuk qiam pagi esok tu. Peserta lelaki semua ada 5 kumpulan je. 2 kumpulan kena pergi masjid senai and the rest masjid taman universiti (haha balik taman u semula!).

Pagi esok lepas Subuh baru boleh buka clue pertama yang dapat time taklimat dekat sekolah semalam. Dalam clue tu dia kasi koordinat untuk lokasi 1st checkpoint. Tengok dekat Google Earth, tempat tu dekat Kulai. Ok senang je...hehe...then lepas dah jumpa 2nd clue tu, dia kasi lagi koordinat for the 2nd checkpoint. Wow! Dekat Gelang Patah...atas pulau mana entah. Ok2, mari gerak. Agak jauh....we all sampai pukul 9.25 AM and kena cari clue seterusnya. Cari punya cari sekali terjumpa clue yang salah daaa...hahahaha! Sekali dekat pulau yang satu lagi. Kena seberang guna tali. Din offer diri untuk seberang....ok steady-steady...stabil....then sekali DUSH!!! jatuh masuk air! Haha...ok2 takpe, berenang je. Lepas dah dapat clue tu, pergi report dekat kem komandan. We all team ke-4 yang sampai dari 16 kumpulan! Yeaah!!!! Hehehe.....

Lepas dah report dekat kem komandan. Terus pergi pasang khemah dekat campsite. Lepas semua dah siap pasang khemah, next aktiviti. Fitness test! Huhuhu....adoyai cane ni? Kaki dah lah sakit...huhu...takpe, buat je la dulu. Ada 4 test yang kena buat:

1. Beap test
2. Push-up
3. Sit-up
4. Long jump

Penat gila! Lepas fitness test dah selesai, kena siap-siap untuk pergi trekking. The distance is 7 KM! Whoa! Dah la tengah penat buat fitness test, terus kena pergi trekking....huhu...takpe2, buat je. Setiap orang bawa kayu. Bekalan air tinggal sikit je. Habis minum time buat fitness test tu...haha! Jalan...jalan...panas...panas... Setelah berjalan yang agak lama, terjumpa lah 1st checkpoint....aaaahhhh.....rehat kejap. Then tengok dekat atas tu macam ada kedai, dengan harapan kedai tu buka...sekali tutup daaaa...mak cik tu kata warung petang baru buka. Tapi dia kasi we all air! Hehehe...apa lagi refill la botol masing-masing sambil lepak dekat warung tu dengan kipas yang nyaman....aaaaahhhh.....lepas dah selesai, teruskan perjalanan. Alhamdulillah we all naik atas sebab it turned out that jalan tu yang betul sebab time tengah naik ke atas tu nampak riben oren (petunjuk jalan). Kalau tak naik, mesti we all dah salah jalan sebab dekat bawah tu pun ada riben oren jugak tapi tu jalan yang salah....jalan..jalan...cuaca nampak seperti mendung....jalan...jalan....bertembung dengan team Asim. Dia dah silap jalan. Checkpoint 1 pun belum jumpa lagi...huhu...dekat situ ada kedai, so apalagi bantai beli air la....hahaha...yang si Asim pinjam motor abang kedai tu sebab kalau nak patah balik tak macam jauh gila la kan...huhu.... So lepas we all dah beli supply2 baru, teruskan jalan....kali ni pulak masuk hutan...jumpa checkpoint 3. Tugas dekat CP 3 ni ialah kena hafal doa masuk hutan tu. Nanti time CP akhir dia akan check. So sepanjang perjalanan tu kita menghafal doa tu. Masuk hutan....sekali jumpa sungai....kena redah...huhu....ok takpe, redah je...nama pun dah mukhayyam..hehehe.....So long story short, we all sampai balik ke campsite dengan selamat.....hehe....

Ok lepas dah sampai balik kem, rehat-rehat, makan, solat and then lepas tu terus kena pergi kayak pulak. Kayak? Hmmm...ok...no hal...hehe...Kena kayak dekat sungai dalam kem tu....banyak jugak jambatan kena lalu....tapi ada satu jambatan ni sangat lah rendah, takut tak lepas je...memula tu cuba, tak lepas...adeih...cane ni...cuba lagi...takleh jugak...huhu...last-last terpaksa tanggal baju baru lepas...hahaha....lepas tu teruskan kayak sampai habis...time tepat 7 minit...yeah! Memandangkan my group was the last one, so we all dapat chance untuk go another round...hehe...tapi lepas tu kena angkat sendiri la kayak tu simpan dekat tempat dia. Ada la beberapa teammates yang pergi 2nd round. Bila dah habis, kena buat obstacle course pulak. Hahaha best gila! Lepas semua except yang last sekali...kena cross river guna tali...hahaha...jatuh dalam sungai....ni semua salah Pakcik Zainal la...hehe...memula tu steady je..tetiba dia kacau, jerit kuat,-kuat apa lagi terkejut ar..terus dah tak stabil...BUSH!!! Jatuh dalam air...hahaha....teammates semua tak lepas kecuali Esamuddin, Afiq and Edi...wah....hehe...tapi diorang tak kena kacau dengan Pakcik Zainal...hahaha...

Rehat-rehat, mandi, makan then solat....malam tu ada program fizikal lagi tapi start dalam pukul 10.30 PM...so ada masa untuk rehat....hehe...lepas solat Maghrib tu tidur...nyenyak gila....hehe....memang sedap gila tidur....ZzZzZzZz.....then dalam pukul 9.00 PM tu ada sesi persembahan...kena persembahkan sajak....Ammar paling lawak...hahaha...."Wahai  kawan, diamlah!" Hahahaha....

Lepas dah selesai semua, semua kena pakai kasut and siap-siap untuk the next program. Program lepas ni ialah Scrambler....kena buat ape? Kita kena masuk hutan and redah je...masuk berdua je. No torchlight, just one walking stick. I was with Edi and terus redah la hutan tu. Fasi kata jalan je terus sampai jumpa sungai on the other side. Nanti ada fasi tunggu kat situ. Awal-awal lagi terpaksa lalu pokok yang duri banyak. Alhamdulillah bulan time tu cerah....kalau tak memang takkan nampak apa-apa. So tengah redah tu, tak ingat berapa kali jatuh gaung la, masuk semak la...haha...about 10 minutes or so, tetiba terserempak dengan Basyir and Amran..haaa ape lagi, jom gerak sama-sama...hehe....agak jauh jalan then tetiba jumpa Esamuddin and Ahmad Qahhar pulak...jom...diorang kata ada jumpa tali...rupa-rupanya tu tali untuk program Night Walk peserta perempuan...So we all fikir, kalau ikut tali ni mesti akan sampai ke hujung hutan ni...yeah! Ikut jalan ni jom....last-last we all pun sampai dekat hujung....semua ahli kumpulan kecuali dua orang, Afiq dan Nas...mana entah diorang...tunggu lah sampai diorang keluar...lepas semua dah keluar, balik ke kem...we all team last...hehe...then terus pergi makan bubur ape ntah nama dia tapi sedap ar...bubur kacang durian eh? Entah la...Then tidur....aaahhh what a day! Hehe..

Esok pagi, lepas dah qiam and solat Subuh, ada tazkirah Subuh....Ammar kasi...hahaha....best! Dia cerita pasal teguran dan adab-adabnya...Then ada riadah berat...hoho...Lepas tu sarapan and kemas kem site. Then ada ceramah from Ustaz Ajmain and ada sesi rasionalisasi from Pakcik Hussein. Then ada sesi penutup oleh Pakcik Ainolutfi. Lepas dah habis, semua ramai-ramai bersalaman and then makan....dah habis makan, siap-siap untuk balik....Time nak balik tu je terus hujan...Alhamdulillah tak hujan time mukhayyam...hehehe....

Jogjakarta: A Great Experience | Part 3

Ok, I think this will be the last part...hehe...I'll try to finish it all. Well, after the farewell meeting, we went back to the hotel and took a rest. That night mau keluar jalan-jalan lagi. We all plan nak pergi makan, so ramai-ramai jalan...dah macam budak sekolah la pulak...haha! So then, last-last satu group berpecah...ada satu group makan tempat lain, satu group makan tempat lain pulak. We all jalan along Jalan Malioboro...one group makan dekat mall, satu lagi group makan dekat warung tepi jalan. Tu pun sebab tak jumpa cari group satu lagi. Nak call tapi tak beli pulak sim card Indonesia... But eventually we regroup and sambung jalan-jalan. Merayau je la...hahaha...See Jogja at night...quite nice...but ramai betol orang melepak...adoyai....kat tepi jalan ramai la orang jual sate ayam....but Prof Zaki warned us not to try the tepi jalan sate coz it may not be ayam...it may be tikus or something else...ewwww...dah bakar sape tau kan...hehe....lepas dah penat, balik la hotel...


The next day, which was Saturday....we had the day to ourselves...buat la pape nak...aktiviti sendiri...nak tido sampai tengahari ke...ape ke...buat la...tapi rugi la kalau tido je...haha.... So, there was a plan to visit a Batik Factory and Mount Merapi! Oh yeah! Mount Merapi...a volcano...best ni kalau pergi...bila lagi nak pergi gunung berapi kan? Kat Malaysia mana ada...takat Gunung Pulai ada la... So sape yang nak ikut kena ready Rp. 50,000 for transportation...no hal...small matter...Ok set, diorang nak bertolak pukul 8.00 AM...but, unfortunately ada miscommunication...huhu...diorang sume dah pergi, they thought we didn't want to come...huhu...melepas lah nak pergi Gunung Merapi tu....uwaaahhh...sedih....yang pergi dalam berapa orang je...satu van...tapi takpelah, mesti ada hikmah dia kan....So kitorang ramai-ramai dengan Dr Min (the best!) pergi ape ntah nama pasar tu...tapi dia pasar yang jual baju-baju dan aksesori yang macam-macam...Haaa this was my chance untuk cari baju t-shirt kolar untuk Ayah... But before that, the three of us had a job to do. Nizar, Shariff and me had to go and exchange money for the others....wow! banyak duit diorang kasi...lepas tukar duit dapat more than Rp. 1,000,0000...wow! After that, we took a taxi to the pasar...panas weh...whoa...very hot...thank God taxi ada air-cond....aaaahhh...after about 5 minutes or so, sampai la dekat depan pasar tu....satu hal nak cari budak-budak ni pulak...adeih...dah la pasar tu crowded and stuffy...panas pulak tu...huhu...lepas dah jumpa tu, cari la apa yang nak di cari....tapi last-last tak jumpa pon...diorang banyak jual t-shirt biasa je...yang ada kolar takde...huhu...after spending about 2-3 hours there, I was drenched in sweat...huhu...then me, Nizar, Puva and Hajjar decided to go and have lunch at the mall. We took the taxi as we all sume dah tak larat nak jalan...penat...after we ate lunch, Nizar wanted to buy a bag for someone back home and after that we went back to the hotel...terus baring atas katil...ahhh nikmatnya dengan air-cond lagi...Alhamdulillah....time tu dah pukul 5.00 PM...then Dr Min kata lepas ni nak keluar pergi dinner...tempat best dia kata...ok then...jom-jom....



After freshening up, we went down and naik Innova ke tempat makan tu...I don't know what was the name of that place but it had a castle. It was awesome..!! And the food was great too! Ada udang...ikan...more ikan...ikan again...hehe...but masak cara lain-lain lah...after dinner we went back to the hotel..but the night wasn't over yet! Oh yeah! Ye lah...last night dekat Jogja...pagi-pagi esok dah nak balik Malaysia...kena bertolak from the hotel at 4.30 AM..oh my God...tidur ke tak malam ni...


After dinner, we all semua nak buat last time shopping....beli t-shirt, keychains and other types of souvenirs...about 1 hour juga lah...then balik hotel semula...simpan barang-barang yang dah beli tu...then terus baring...aaahhh..rehat....then tetiba ada orang ajak keluar lagi...nak naik kuda pulak...adoi...memula rasa malas gila nak ikut...baru je balik! Penat ni...then tetiba ajak keluar balik? Huhu...last-last fikir balik...oh what the heck...malam terakhir kat Jogja...ikut je lah...nanti rugi...So we all pun ramai-ramai naik kuda...kena 2 kuda sebab tak muat...kita ada 10 orang semuanya...Dr Min, Tina, Nizar, Ruzimi and me naik satu kuda and the rest kuda lain. I sit in front with the horse driver...menyesal pulak duduk depan...huhu...why? You will know in a minute....


So gerak lah kuda tu...ktak ktuk ktak ktuk....wah best...but agak sempit...hehe..ye lah orang besar, kaki panjang...huhu....Then tetiba kuda ni urgh....well I was sitting directly behind this horse's butt...well you get me? The horse took a leak! Huhu...uwaahh!!! Depan-depan mata...eyuckk!! And then the tail....well, you know right? I was like oh man....!!! Tapi takpe, nasib baik sikit je...huhu...(for now!). Kuda yang we all naik ni jalan slow la...maybe sebab I was on it...hahaha....!!!! Kitorang nampak tengah ada buat shooting...tak tau movie or tv series....Group yang satu lagi dah kat depan....jauh dah....then tetiba nampak kuda diorang stop depan hotel...aik? apesal kuda ni? So we all pun stop la jugak...pergi tanya diorang cakap kuda tu suddenly stop sebab depan hotel.....hahaha! Lepas tu, sambung balik jalan...nak balik Jalan Malioboro. Kuda diorang pun jalan...last-last kuda kitorang pulak yang tanak jalan! Adeih...apa kena ni?? Cepat la jalan...driver tu dah whip banyak kali pun tak gerak-gerak...lama juga we all tunggu...then kuda tu took another leak!!!! Aaaargh...this time banyak!!! Uwaaaahhhh.....I immediately covered my face and eyes with my shirt...tanak kasi mercik dekat muka lagi.....huhu....menyesal duduk depan!!! Diorang kat belakang gelak je...hahahaha siot.... Lepas dah sampai balik Jalan Malioboro tu, Dr Min ajak pergi mall...nak belanja we all makan...hehehe....thanks Dr Min...you're the best! After that, we went back to the hotel....uish, tak boleh tidur ni...nak kena pack semua barang siap-siap...pagi esok nak gerak at 4.30 AM man...kemas-kemas...muatkan semua dalam beg...risau jugak berat beg lebih 15 kg...huhu...Nizar lepas dah habis pack, terus tidur...ZzZzZ...bestnya...Me? Belum siap lagi...banyak lagi...ok takpe, cepat siapkan packing...nanti pagi esok takde lah nak rushing...Lepas dah habis tu, boleh pulak tertido...(ceh..ye ar tu tertido..haha)...ye lah penat satu hari jalan...dari pagi sampai malam kerja jalan je...capek gue..!!!

4.30 AM...tak bertolak lagi.....ramai macam tak siap lagi...then 5.00 AM baru gerak ke airport...nasib baik airport dekat je...in about 10 minutes or so dah sampai...lepas dah unload all the baggages, pergi check in. Risau je beg lebih 15 kg...and mine was 14.6 kg...Shariff's was 14.8 kg!! Hohoho...nasib baik..hehe...then tunggu sampai nak board the plane....lepas dah board, take off...time tengah kat atas tu lalu sebelah Gunung Merapi...masya-Allah...indahnya...lalu sebelah gunung tu...mantap ah! This time I didn't sit next to the window...nak kata selesa, takdelah selesa but more ok la...still sempit...ok 2 and half hours baru sampai Singapore...but then I slept...bangun-bangun dah nak sampai...oh yeah! After we landed, took our baggages and waited for the others. Then waited for the bus to come. Masuk balik Malaysia lalu tambak Johor...adoi...jem punya la panjang...sempat tidur ni...haha... Lepas dah lepas semua imigresen, rasa lega je...home sweet home...Alhamdulillah selamat sampai...


TAMAT

Jogjakarta: A Great Experience | Part 2

Ok, let's continue where we left off...lepas dah balik from jalan-jalan, balik bilik. We all plan nak tengok game Barcelona vs Inter Milan tu...dah semangat ni...tapi sorang-sorang tumbang, Nizar awal-awal lagi dah tidur, Shariff pula memang tengah stay up ni, ye ar dia sokong Barca masuk final....dia cakap nanti kalau game dah start, kejut dia. So, I waited up until the game started and lepas tu try la kejut Shariff. Dia bangun kejap then tidur balik...hahaha....tengok sorang-sorang je la nampaknya....but then again, sempat tengok sampai minit ke-30 je sebab lepas tu krrrooohhhhh......Zzzzzz....haha...pagi besok baru yang Barca kalah 3-2 on aggregate...hahahaha...yes! YES!!! So lepas dah siap-siap nak bertolak ke UGM, we all singgah dulu kat satu tempat ni...tempat ni orang selalu buat hajat...ada 2 pokok besar yang orang situ percaya boleh makbulkan hajat diorang....tapi kena datang waktu pagi-pagi buta...hohoho...So lepas dah amek gambar sume, terus ke UGM...ada 2nd kuliah. This time from Prof Dr Zaki...the lecture was about Soft System Methodology. Then dia kasi assignment. Hari Jumaat kena present. 


After the lecture, we went jalan-jalan lagi. This time we went to ape ntah nama tempat tu tapi tempat tu jual barang-barang seramik and then ke tempat yang jual barang-barang made from skin eh, I meant leather...hahaha.... So I brought 3 small vases for Mak. Takut gak kalau Mak suruh beli pasu besar-besar...hahahaha....so tanya la Mak nak pasu besar mana, dia cakap beli yang saiz dia dalam sejengkal je...After that, we went kedai Pak Joyo Roti. Diorang jual kek lapis...sedap! Tapi malas nak beli bawak balik sebab nanti leceh nak bawak dalam plane...hehehe...but yang diorang lain beli je....


The next day was the best! We all satu hari pergi jalan je...dari pagi sampai malam...hehehe...First we went to Borobudur. The journey from our hotel to Borobudur took about an hour and a half...something like that...Tempat ni pernah belajar time Sejarah time sekolah dulu. Ingat lagi, sebab candi ni nak siap sangat lama...60 years baru complete and it was once a wonder of the 7 wonders of the world. Sume best except for 1 thing....time turun bas ramai gila orang datang nak jual barang dia...keychains, t-shirts, postcards etc...there will be like 5 to 8 people kerumun sorang...huhuhu...I had a bad experience with these people, but macam tanak citer je...sedih...huhuhu..... 



So, after Borobudur we went to Prambanan. It took another an hour or so. Along the way, we stopped by for lunch and prayer. Well, I didn't eat though coz didn't had the appetite...kept thinking about what happened to me at Borobudur...huhu...ok stop! Stop thinking about it! Dah lepas...biarkan aje...huhu.....Lepas dah sampai Prambanan tu, pergi jalan-jalan lagi...the place was quite nice. But this time, more peace as there were no people hogging you trying to sell you things...adoyai...hehe... After taking pics here and there, we went to see the sunset on top er...tak ingat nama gunung tu...tapi memang best...you can see Bandar Jogjakarta from up there...nice! Then we ate dinner at Goebog Resto...lauk ikan je semua...hehehe....ok la sebab lepas balik hotel ni kena buat discussion because esok tu kena buat presentation...hehe...brain food...ikan...hehehe...



We all sampai balik hotel at about 8.00 PM...sudah capek...haha...penat...takpe, rehat-rehat dulu kejap..baring atas katil yang best! Terbaek! Then about 8.30 PM tu keluar semula pergi jumpa dengan team members yang dari UGM buat discussion...we all punya discussion relax-relax je...hahaha....memang best...dalam pukul 10 PM tu, we all pun balik ke hotel....

The next morning was Friday. We all keluar at about 8.00 AM and we went and picked up Prof Zaki at the University Club...he and his wife stayed there...wuuu best...then we went to UGM for the final lecture from Dr Min...tajuk dia 5 Disciplines of Innovation. After that, presentation time. The assignment was to draw a rich picture about the place we went yesterday and come up with new ideas on how to improve the system there. Lepas semua dah present, ada farewell meeting...huhuhu...sedih...


Part 3 coming soon....

Jogjakarta: A Great Experience | Part 1

Last week (26/4/2010 - 2/5/2010) I went to Jogjakarta or Yokyakarta or Djogdjakarta...hahaha so many types of spelling. Well, I went there for the UTM Global Outreach Program. Great experience, made many new friends...hehehe...Nizar, Shariff, Puva, Hajjar and How a.k.a Jasper were the only ones from my batch that joined. The others were 2nd year students and masters students. Dr Min was the coordinator of this program.

Our flight was on 26 April 2010 at 10.55 AM from Singapore. So we all have to get up very early that day. We all kena kumpul dekat FAB at around 6.30 AM. Dr Min dah pesan sejak hari tu lagi, jangan lewat...hehehe...but because of some setback, we all bertolak from UTM at 7.00 AM...(sorry Dr Min).

After all was settled, the bags were packed in the bus, we boarded the bus and I who was in charge to make sure all were on the bus started counting and make sure that there was all 24 people on board. Then off we go to Changi Airport. We all lalu jalan belakang, tak lalu Tambak Johor....nanti jam woooo....So we enjoyed the pemandangan of Singapore which was very clean...you can see the difference....we went pass the Eye of Singapore....Singapore Grand Prix circuit....but didn't see the Merlion though...


Lepas dah lepas semua proses immigration and all, we checked in and waited until to be boarded. Lepas dah masuk plane (Air Asia), I sat next to the window and oh man....sempit.... the last time I naik Air Asia was in 2006 when I went to Aceh. The journey from Singapore to Jogjakarta is 2 and half hours! So terpaksalah duduk sempit macam tu for 2 and half hours. But luckily, last night I didn't sleep and after the plane took off, for about 20 minutes or so, I...krroooohhh....ZzZzZ....and by the time I woke up, we were about to land...yay! The local time was about 12.30 PM and it was blazzing hot...whoah! After that, we all went straight to UGM (Universitas Gadjah Mada). There will be a little briefing about the program and the tentative for the whole week. Soon after, we were brought to tour the faculties and the campus. Gadjah Mada was actually the name of the king of Jogjakarta long ago!


The last faculty that we went was the Fakultas Kedokteran (Faculty of Medicine). After that, we went straight to the hotel (yay!) Malioboro Inn...hehehe....me, Nizar and Shariff were in room 217. The first thing we did when we entered the room was to check the TV to see if there's ESPN and there is! We were planning to watch the Champions League Semi-Final. The room was awesome! There's two bed and one tilam on the floor. We all gilir-gilir tidur...which means on the first day, me and Shariff slept on the beds while Nizar slept on the floor. The next day, was Shariff's turn and so on. That night, we went out jalan-jalan dekat Malioboro...check out the place...woooo ada mall...layan....


The next day, we went back to UGM to hear a lecture about DSS and after that we all checked out the labs and stuff. That evening we went to KOPMA which stands for Koperasi Mahasiswa. They sell all kinda stuff about UGM...t-shirts, bags, keychains, caps and much more. That night we went out again. We all naik bas and jalan-jalan around the city.  Mak asked me to buy a 3 in 1 batik set and I was like, "Mana la nak cari? Tak tahu tempat ni..." Then I asked Prof Zaki coz he has been staying here a week early and he knows. So we all pun jalan-jalan....then I stopped at this one shop and asked about the 3 in 1 thing. She said, "Ada...ada...." and I asked for samples....hehe....after choosing carefully and thinking which patterns that Mak will like, I bought 3...one for Nenek, one for Busu and one for Mak. Then we went to the mall again...saje jalan-jalan...hehehe...


To be continued....more to come!

A Happy Weekend

This weekend turned to be a pleasent and happy weekend for me. Yeah! Firstly, my final exams ended today at 5.00 PM...after that, we all went and took photos to make memories of our years at UTM...then the big one! The Manchester Derby!  

Manchester City vs Manchester United 

......where all are at stake. Both teams want a win not just because of local pride, but it will determine the season of each team! Very tense. I watched the match with my friends at our usual place, P19 a.k.a. FKE which many of us call it coz it's near to FKE (Fakulti Kejuruteraan Elektrik). So, we watched it that may be the last time we can watch it together...huhu...and what a moment it was! The match was entering stoppage time and the scoreline was still 0-0...and in the 93rd minute, a winner by Paul Scholes! The place went crazy (me too! hahaha...) Sorry Ali..hehehe...he's a Man City fan but not since they become a rich club...hehe...he's a fan since we were in school...that's a true fan right there!

So we went back to our hostel, where I was smiling happily.... Then I thought to myself, wouldn't it be great if Chelsea were to lose to Tottenham after this...and YES! It did happen...hehehe....So this weekend is a happy weekend for me...3 great things in 1 day altogether...yeah!

Victory...!!!

Frustrated

I'm very frustrated and down in the dumps right now....

FRUST

Relax and Enjoy

Today I had a great day with my family. We started at home at 10.52 AM. We planned to eat breakfast at our usual favourite place, Restoran Lokman in Sri Skudai where they make the best Milo Ais in the world...! Unfortunately, it was still closed due to the holidays....sob3... But instead, we ate BK for our breakfast...hehehe....Double Mushroom Swiss, thank you!

We then went and try the new Senai-Desaru highway. Long story short, we went to Teluk Remunia. I've been there twice before this. First was in 2008 during the G7 Rehlah and the second was last year during PaLs Rehlah. After that, we went to Batu Layar, then Desaru. We "checked in" a resort there...hahaha.... We walked along the beach and breathe the fresh air that is very hard to get these days especially if you live in busy neighborhoods like Taman U which by the way is getting very crowded....It took me like 15 minutes just to go to Jusco which usually takes me just 5 minutes. Very stressful you know. So many cars, so many people. By the way, I think the name "Taman" is not very suitable now for Taman Universiti, more like a Bandar Universiti.

So now, we walked along the beach which is very calm and peaceful. Just hear the waves and feel the wind blow on your face. Very relaxing and soothing...aaahhh.... That is why one day I would love to have a house near the beach where every morning when I wake up, I can see the sea and have fresh air. But then people will say it's dangerous to live by the sea because there could be a Tsunami or whatever....well, I don't care. I love it and that's that....hehe....


After that, we headed home and stopped by Kota Tinggi to eat and Aimi and I had to wait and wait and wait to have our orders arrived. I ordered nasi goreng cina while Aimi ordered nasi goreng ayam. The rest of them had already finished eating but still our hasn't arrived yet. I said, "Ni sah la ni lupa nak masak ni...". So Ayah called the waiter and asked about our orders and I was right, they forgot! Then finally our food arrived 5 minutes later. BUT there's a slight problem, they gave us the wrong food! I got nasi goreng cendawan and Aimi got nasi goreng paprik! But we were tired of waiting, we just ate them...hahaha....didn't care much now, just eat.

We arrived home at about 9.00 PM and we were quite exhausted but I cannot sleep yet because if sleep now, I'm gonna miss the AC Milan vs Man Utd game...hehehe....

Padan Muka

I just found out recently that the shop that I decided to boycott is now out of business!!! Hahaha...padan muka!!! Amek ko!!! To those that have no idea what I'm talking about, please read it here..... 

I was driving at Taman U the other day, and I glanced to that shop and saw that the signboard was replaced. Hahaha....and ever since I boycotted them, I always hoped that it will close soon...hahaha...well my wish came true! 

I think I'm gonna check out the new shop and make an impression of it....hehe....warning to other shops, don't make me hate your shop or your services.....or you will be next! Muahahaha!!!!
