Quick update on CNY holiday

Alhamdulillah I arrived safely in Perak. It took us 12 hours bus journey. From 10 am to 10pm. Traffic jam starts from USJ till toll exit in Sungkai. If we were to take a flight to London, we would landed in London within that time. Fuhh. What a backache we had. Luckily we don’t drive back. Moreover, with the expensive toll ticket, I don’t think we’re going to stress ourselves along the journey.

Being a wife, this is the second time we went back to Perak together. It was my mum who keeps on asking me about buying the ticket because we had horrifying experience when it comes to bus’ tickets during major ethnic holiday. Hence, we both burnt RM272 for the transportation. To and fro. Continue reading

camping in ulu langat

this weekend i went to ulu langat campsite. Impian country resort. Near to Nuang mountain. since my cooperating teacher told me that we’re going to camp on friday, my heart beats fast, my eyes were sparkling and my enthusiasm is uncontrollable.

immediately after came back from school on friday (1230pm), I didn’t even had lunch. I straight away pack my stuffs (because I didn’t manage to pack earlier due to school workload). Very minimum and basic. I’m being a  minimalist. As I met my practicum mates, they told me “Aini ni rupa betul2 nak bercamping”. That’s because their style was so leisure. Haha. Macam nak g bersantai.

Then as we arrived at the resort, the river and the coldness greeted us. I took ablution. Guess what. The water source comes from the river. Cold and very earthy. Err, I just don’t know how to describe it. It’s just so refreshing.I was so sleepy when I arrived because I didn’t have a good night sleep before, but was awaken by the refreshing river water. So yeah. The water that comes out from the pipe is au naturale river water.

Night walk. I imagine i’d be an easy one. Just some walk in the forest. Na-ah. We gathered nearby forest at 1100 pm. Then we go into it, 1130pm. Was very dark. Never ever experience such darkness ever. This is not like blackout (TNB malfunction) moment. Flashlights are not allowed. Just use your senses. Legs and arms especially. Eyes are not functioning well that time. As we go deeper, the route is getting more difficult. Then I have a feeling it was not a night walk. We were climbing hill at night. Kids need adult’s help in order to climb tree root which is taller than them. Was hilly and slippery. But the kids were very very brave and strong. None of them freaked out or cried. It’s my first time climbing hill at night. Imagine the kids. They climbed hill, for the first time, at night, without any light source. Wow. I’m jealous. They’ve created world record I think.

We climbed roots. Hanging on a rope. Slide down our butts on bumpy muddy hill. My shoes’ sole even fell out. I was in a very dangerous situation when I climbed down. I will treasure that moment forever. Come to think of it, how did I do it? I never thought that I have a very very strong inner strength.Oh, we reached flat land by 130am. 2 hours of climbing a very challenging hill, in the darkness of night. Then the kids were waken up at 5 am. We only had few hours of sleep.

Saturday, laluan berhalangan. Or, shall I say obstructed paths? So, the kids need to go under thorny wires, climbed a wall, climbed 3 metres-90 degrees hill slope, then they need to climbed down backward, for half an hour, balancing on a hanging tree trunk and go under muddy water. We teachers even discourage them, not to do it, in case they can’t but these kids, hmpf. So strong and brave. Some of them did went back. But most of them took the challenge. Seriously, they are champion. So yeah. Nak show off sikit. I had bare-foot moment in the forest. Cikgu² laki cam tercabar je ngan aku. Haha. Kak Aniz had took the priceless-moment picture from the ground (cewah ala shoot saiful nang). Me with other cikgu laki(dak2 pompuan laen gi jaga stesen, derg tak climbed down), balancing ourselves kat atas tree trunk which is hanging 5 metres from ground, sambil buat gaya peace beruk. Coolness. Haha. Ada some cikgu yang jatuh pas tgkp gamba tp me, PK koko and cikgu from sabah tu managed to stay. Haha. *cool gler*Seb baek tak rebah tree trunk tu. haha. risau jugak kot² tumbang tbe2 sbb ramai2 naek atasnya. lol.

Those were the moments that i’ll remember forever. I’m not going to tell the bits where we had motivatinal talk, kem ibadah and treasure hunt yada². i think it’s my personal achievement that i will foretold my story to my grandchildren. Alhamdulillah nothing happened after my shoe sole tercabut. I was like cuak gile. Nak tanggal takleh. Nak biarkan pun bahaya. Hmm. Mujur Allah masih memberi sisa² peluang untuk bernafas di muka bumi ni.

nak pergi camping and climbing lagi!!!

I had priceless experience in my life ever.

A bit of sad news, I managed to dig out some story fromt the Indonesian forest guide that Nuang mountain is not clean nowadays. Only the resort’s river area is clean. What a shame. We Malaysians do not know how to take care of god’s beautiful creation.

What to do and bring to the beach

Me+swimming=happy. Went to Pangkor last week wif Ana, Durra and Nisa (tapi tak terjumpe Kak Red & family laa). Haven’t been to Pangkor for quite a while. So, been an orang laut, here are the tips that will make your beach vacation the best ever.


What to do at beach

If you are laid back style, you can chill, sunbathe, ogling people, bury your friend in sand, building sand castles, taking pictures, strolling at the beach, souvenir shopping, picnicking (not panicking! haha) and swim near the beach.

If you are adventurous and love to try new things, you may want to consider to have the experience of island hopping and see the exotic sea creatures and sea plants, snorkeling, crossing from the beach to the island when the tide is low, banana boat ride (not suitable for small kids),

And, these are the things you can do with your friends (big group) canoing, water rafting, telematch, cycling around the island, fishing, barbecue at the beach (best giler!) and of course, shopping for dried sea food!!


What to bring

  1. Beach sandal: penting wo, don’t wear your leathered Hush Puppies. Nanges kang
  2. mengkuang mat: so that you won’t have sandy bum and eat happily on it without feeling sandy.
  3. goggles: your eyes will be stung by salt water if you swim
  4. food: of course! swimming makes one hungry.
  5. swim suit: k, i have some tips here, if you want to wear tights, you should wear it from home so that you will not waste time changing it over there. For Muslimah, there are burqinis to be worn.
  6. Sunny: The most important, that will give your face coolest tan look. Choose the one that suits your face. You don’t want to look like a fashion victim right?
  7. Sunblock: self-explanatory.
  8. Waterproof bag or pouch: Important to protect your dollars, handphones and cameras.
  9. Baju salin, shower foam and tola (towel): get the one that is easy to be worn. don’t bring large tola, such a waste of space.
  10. water bottle: after swimming and gulping sea water, you may feel thirsty and have bitter taste in your throat. plus, hot sun will make you dehydrated.


Pikshures: I don’t have gadget to upload my pikshures yet, so just look at Kak Red’s mkay?

More tips: if it is a day trip, get out from the beach by 3 pm. Or you’ll be queuing with people who just checked out from the hotel and mind you, it’s a very long queue during school holiday.

(k, gtg, kne pass balik kompite kat adik bongsu aku yg meracau nak maen kompite)


Hee hee. Finally. I online guna laptop kawan sambil menggunakan hotspot dari menara Telekom. BTW, so many things to say.

I miss the time reading people’s blog and blogging about anything under the sun.

Thank you for the comments, people. Very touching.

Today I went out with Azwan, Aini Shamsi and Omark. Tiring rupenye cari komputer kat Loyat. Penuh sesak bahu ke bahu. Trafik manusia memang padat. Hujan pula. Loyat buat duit dengan tandas. Lima puluh sen sekali. Surau Low Yat Plaza, menghampakan.

Malaysia climate makes my sensitive skin have heat rashes. Huu~ Camana nak jadi beautiful kalau duduk kat country panas mcm ni? I think it’s due to my allergy which I get after a while in UK.

BTW, thank you aini shamsi for the souvenirs from Adelaide.

Gosh. I’m bloody tired. The sun in Malaysia saps my energy. The pollution and cigaret’s smoke as well. *sigh*


Ramainya orang suruh saya pulang. Ya. Mahu pulang la ni.

This time I come back for good. Soalan glemer: perasaan? Jawapan saya: Mixed feelings. Huu~~ Lagi beberapa jam nak naik flight and these are the things I’m going to miss:

1-MARJON– Obviously. Thousand times better than IPBA

2- Lovely people of Plymouth– Since we are not so urban, the traditional and good manners are still preserved. I’m going to miss pakcik bas says ‘Are you okay malove?’. Nanti kat Malaysia you will be yelled at tau dalam bas. “Dalam lagi! Dalam lagi!”. Silap haribulan kena raba. Dah sempit sangat. Uh~~ I still remember our trip to the city masa christmas shopping itu hari. Sungguh lovely sangat orang2 Plymouth. Masing2 nak bagi tempat duduk. Akhlak mulia sungguh.

3- The food: Kat sini la belajar makan cous cous instead of nasi and develop my culinary skills of Italian food. Chewah. Last time my diet works. Pastuh balik Malaysia. Hampeh. Expanding my waistline. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!! *pulls hair*

4- The internet: Although the speed is considered slow in here, but, it is wayyyyyyyy faster than the fastest internet connection speed in Malaysia.

5- The library and books: Oh my god. Why can’t IPBA library be like MARJON’s. It’s not that we’re that miskin. Kalau expanditure utk education dilebihkan, takkan la rakyat Malaysia susah nak cari buku bagus-bagus di library. *membawa diri ke Singapura*

Huu~~ I’m going to pack this desktop and am going to miss for a day

*hug and kiss my own desktop*

Will be in Malaysia in a day. Insya Allah.

PMS (bukan program MSM)

I believe there are many medical notes about it. So, google it. Read it for the sake of world’s peace. So, the things that can help to reduce the symptoms are as such:


  • Eating a balanced and nutritious diet (cannot, sehari ada 3 open houses)
  • Eating smaller and more frequent meals (cannot! open houses means lotsa food)
  • Reducing the consumption of sugar and salt (cannot!! malaysian food got lotsa that)
  • Cutting out alcohol and caffeine (I just bought caffeine lipstick and drink teh tarik power root, so cannot)
  • Taking regular exercise (cannot lah! no time)
  • Supplementing the diet with vitamin B6, calcium, magnesium and zinc (what’s that?)
  • Sleeping properly (lagi cannot!! dissertation means no proper sleep you know)

Then, how? Astaghfirullah. I don’t ask to be like this oke. It’s part and parcel of being a women. La taghdob. I know. But just can’t. Halp!!

A day at Totnes

Salam. I had a day trip to Totnes today.

Visited Berry Pomeroy Castle with other MARJON students. It was sunny and a perfect day for pollen to float in the air. Whee~~! And only Allah knows how I’m worried of sniffing flowers, stepping the grass and get near to any kind of plants!

I went out with Sarah, and FYI, she is suffering hayfever as well. What a coincidence, when the driver asked us to say “sneeze” instead of “cheese”, the next thing we heard was, she was really sneezing! Few times. And she was sneezing until we arrived in Plymouth. Poor her. O yeah, new product for hay fever sufferer. Sarah suggested me Happinose . I tried it. Smells nice and insha Allah it will decongest a stuffy nose.

Oh, talking about hayfever, last night, I breathed from my mouth. Can’t sleep well actually. My nose blocked and I thought I might get asthma, but Alhamdulillah, was OK. Managed to get up for Fajr still.

Well, I had a long day today, I hope I’ll get better by tomorrow and Sunday. Insha Allah. Will updates the pictures soon insha Allah. Need some sleep now. Have a pleasant weekend!

aku dan dia.

Bila aku marah

Rasa diri lemah

Dia mengingatkan aku dengan kalimah

Dan menenangkan aku dengan hikmah

Bila aku rasa serabut

Buat kerja kalut

Kepada dia aku mengadu

Dia berikan ilham padaku

Bila aku rasa kehilangan

Juga tatkala keseorangan

Dia berikan aku ayat penenang

Mengubat aku dengan kasih sayang

dia tuhan aku dan kamu
dia juga sayang pada kamu,
bukan hanya aku


Ilham datang di subuh hari. Heheh. Baru balik dari Surrey. Kantoi ngan ustaz, anak murid ust kashfi. Ngehngeh. Sampai Plymouth 5 pagi. Hmm. Makin pergi ke negeri jauh, makin rasa bodoh. Banyak benda lagi nak kena belajar rupanya. Hari ini ada kelas IT bersama cikgu Mike. Ganbatte ne!
