hehehehe. pic frm my Samsung Tocco. i love it i love it i love it!
Hola amigos!! it's not like i'm gonna go on a holiday to Spain or anythin'.. but i miss going to Spanish Club. huhuhu. i think i wanna go to Spain during the summer break. YEAP! :D . first and foremost, I made cupcakes just now!!! yay! unfortunately, it doesn't taste really really good. it tastes like.. apam. ahahha well not exactly like apam. i dunno how to describe it. well, it's a simple vanilla cupcake and i think i should've put icing on it. i'll try again some other time.

Raya Haji was okay. didn't feel like Raya to me. had lectures, and bila org buat opn house, i had classes to go to. so sad. but petang raya tuh, i went to the Surau as they had some mkn2 going on. :) dpt la food sedap sket that day! :) hehehe.
Christmas holiday just started!!! i'm happy sad! happy cause finally.. a break from studying n sad cause i have an assignment to do. haih. it's been awhile since the last post. my Ac.F test was not so good as i didn't have time to finish one question! waaaaaaaa. hopefully the other questions can help cover that one.
oh yea, celebrated Nana & "Luqman's" birthday last Saturday. u wanna know why i put Luqman's name in " ? well, because HE, the birthday boy didn't attend his own birthday dinner!! can u imagine that?! he didn't go for his own birthday dinner. the reason?? "oh u guys didn't tell me!" Nadia DID tell him and when nadia told him that she did tell him about the dinner. then he said "but u guys didn't confirm"... in the first place kan, kalau tak dgr berita ke apa ke. sms la tanya kan, jadi ke tak. ni tak. tunggu jer.. in d end, everyone else pergi except dia. thank god nana went. so we celebrated her birthday jer. nadia n i went out the day before looking for a nice place to have dinner for their birthday. we spent hours cause we wanted to go to this restaurant called The Royal Latinos Tapas Bar (mexican food) but it was fully book, so we had to make do with Verdes (italian restaurant) instead. we were all trying to get luqman but his phone was switched off! and it got us all worried. then when syaz went back he saw luq walking all healthy. (we thought he was sick or something). and he blamed us for him not turning up 4 d dinner. syaz on the other hand who stayed near to luqman didn't even bother to call him up before coming tanya nak pergi together ke tak. i tell u, i don't understand them at all. they live like only 10metres apart and don't bother telling each other stuff. haih. felt so awkward having to meet luq the next day cause we had a project to do. i think he felt the same way too. but thank goodness everything was back to normal after a day or two. :)

Last Friday night, i went to Sugarhouse again for the Christmas party. Nadia & I had so much fun! the songs that the dj played, ooohhhh we know most of it alright! best! a lot of my classmates were there too! well, cause Sugarhouse belongs to the Student Union so yea, only uni students are allowed there. :) there were some people who dressed up as a xmas tree, santa, and reindeers! went there with Danny and his frens frm China and when we reached there, more frens frm China! huhuhu. they were all nice people and got one cute one.. HHAHAHA. so yipee!! :) oh yea, there was this one night, where Iqa, Nadia & I made cucur bawang. and that night jugak ada fire alarm. ahhahahahaha! we were like.. it wasn't us right.. RIGHT?! buat cucur jer pun kan. plus, at that time, we've finished our cucur and were having our dessert (i.e. peaches and cream.. mmmm).

One of my partners in crime went back to M'sia yesterday. :( . sent her off at the station. how nice to go back to m'sia kan. haih. oh well, i'll go back too during the summer! :)

AND NOW.. some pictures! :)

The cucur bawang getting their "tan". hehe.

of food, monopoly night n Malaysian Nottingham Games!

Last wednesday night, Iqa n I crashed Nadia's room n played monopoly! iqa brought her cool camera, erm forgot the model. but i know it's this damn cool camera lar like those professional photographers pakai tuh. yea those types. she looked like a journalist haha. bawak sebesar2 monopoly board tuh gi rumah nadia. I on the other hand, was carrying a can opener AND a tin of laici. hahahhhaa. looked so funny jln2 bawak benda tuh. malas nak bawak bag for just that 2 things. it looked as if i'm gonna hit someone with the can opener. the monopoly that we played used credit card to buy the lots. COOL RIGHT?!! it's in millions. i think it's one of those limited ediotions monopoly boards. like the Star wars monopoly. hehe. that night, for dinner, before i head off to nadia's house, i made fried salmon? well, want to call it grilled salmon but tak grill kan. so fry jer lah. and iqa made the vege. it looked good!!! very hotel-ish. hehehe and we had apple crumble for dessert! very nice dinner indeed. here are some pictures of the monopoly night and the dish that i had for dinner!

Yesterday, i attended the Malaysian Notts Games. it was so-so. very dissapointed on the food tho. i mean, i think i went to the wrong stalls cause all the food that i bought didn't taste good. so sad. i kept buying food hoping that it'll taste nice but got the opposite. sedih sedih. oh well. but very happy indeed to meet my college my frens AND EVEN some ex-schoolmates frm high school!!! i was really happy to c them all! i wanted to watch my uni played football but by the time i got there, they've finished playing. dang. huhu. mayb next time then. i watched the netball game, basketball game, volleyball, badminton, ping pong, while at the same time i was looking for all my frens. hehehe. didn't get to meet Mariam tho. :( i went back home at about 3.50pm and it was "Nadia n I Adventure Back Home"! haha. both first timers balik naik train. damn fun! full of stories, gossips n with the change of trains semua...adventure! now i know how to change trains and all. whee!!! took a lot of pics when we were on the train. when we were heading to notts, iqa followed as well so with her ever so cun camera. more pictures were taken! belum sampai notts lagi, camera dah almost full with pics in train! huhuhu. didn't really take a lot of pics with my frens in notts. bila jumpa my frens then we'll get so excited and i forgot about taking pics. so this december, i want to go to some parts of UK and visit my frens and at that time....PICTURES SHALL BE TAKEN!!!! YESSSSS! here's some pics frm notts and some pics i manage to take with a few of my frens.

life, oh life! oh liiiifeee turututu

Anyone knows that song? it's by Desiree (referring to the title of this post) :) . i've been really really bz last week. i have meetings to go almost everyday; frm group meetings according to subjects to LUVU stuffs. oh yea, i joined the Lancaster Uni Volunteering Unit (LUVU), not sure whether i've mentioned it b4. i'm not suppose to be blogging now either but i thought i'd steal some time while having my b'fast right now i'll blog at the same. i'm having crumpets with honey! wheee. crumpets is like waffles/pancakes but it's diff. hehe. i'll be going to Malaysian Notts Games next Saturday!!!! i am soooo excited!!!!!!! i'll get to meet my KYUEM frens AND my other KL frens too!!!!! however, i have to go back early tho, by 4pm i'll be off to Lancs. heih. decided not to stay overnight there and follow my frens back to lancs. well, there's the christmas holiday! so i'll be visiting those outside lancs anyway (with god's will). I'm currently writing an essay too. i have 3 essays to write and this is my first one. dang it. the other two will have to be passed up in week 8 i think. it'll be week 5 starting this monday.

Yesterday was my first meeting with the KULM (kelab umno lancaster & morecambe). fyi, morecambe is lancaster's neighbour. hehe. had to write down the minutes of the meeting. huhuhu. never in my life had i to do that. good practice for me i guess, not that i want to b a secretary but in taking down important points. might help me in jotting down notes during my lectures. ANYWAY, there are only 4 ajks in it. small committee, yea i know. but it's good in a way, easier to do work. as the saying goes, too many hands spoils the.. err.. errrmm..k i forgot. help me out here.. hmmm. k nvm, u know what i mean right?.. yea ok. hehe. kinda surprised that we do quite a lot of activities here. most of our activities will be combined with LUMSS (lancs uni m'sian student soc) so then will have lots of people working together. oh yes, in March there'll be the UMNO's AGM aka Perhimpunan Agong UMNO and i might have to go because the president might not be able to go, so, it'll be either Syakir, Me or Nadia that will have to attend the meeting. free ticket to M'sia!!!! hmmm but i guess the vice would be the best person to go huh. oh well.. there's the pros n cons of going i think. the pros are a bit more tho. heish. shall not worry about that now. i've got assignments to do!

oh yes, Halloween night was fun!! i was with my frens (i.e. my malaysian gang kat lancs. :D hehe.). went to Nana's house cause her flatmates had a small halloween party then we all went to town. the songs that were played at Elements were hmmm.. let's just say the DJ wasn't that great. kept playing slow remixes which i don't like at all, he played it for a long time too! and only a few upbeats were played. but it's okay, i had fun anyway. :) but maybe next time i hope that a different dj will be there. IF i go there again. ;) i was suppose to be a vampire but i dunno whether i really looked like one or not. didn't have the sharp teeths. hehe. BUT Iqa did a great job on the blood part!! she's sooo good at the make up part. she did the make up for all of us. her make up was damn cool, she dressed up as dead minnie mouse. hahahha cute right? it sounds cute BUT she looked scary! nadia dressed up as a cat. not sure whether it's dead or not. dead lah kut. luqman as the joker, syakir an injured panda. HAHHAHHHA! NEH, i forgot what he's suppose to be. OH, danny as the walking pc!!!! damn cool. he made the t-shirt by himself! syazwan as a creepy dude as well, got stitches on his face too. here r some pics! toodles peeps!

A Chubby Future

Hello hello! for these past few days, i've been eating a lot. A LOT i tell ya. i used to make like half a cup of rice but now it's always one full cup at one go. made it into nasi goreng and eat it with ikan bilis goreng kicap or ayam goreng. that day i had rice for lunch AND dinner. gosh.huhuhu. last Thursday night, my frens n i went to Imran's(a restaurant in town), it serves those indian foods like vegetable pilau rice, curry chicken, lamb, naan, chicken kebab, beryani n etc. i had 3 rounds that night! THREE people..THREE! had 4 naans, and 2 rounds of Vegetable Pilau Rice with the ever so delicious curry chicken. mmmm. i'm always munching when i'm in my room. it'll be either my fav strawberry yogurt(thick n creamy..huhuhu.. i can't help it, it's sooooo good) or the toffee bonbons or the raspberry jam biscuits. :) so, i foresee that i shall become one chubby girl by the time i get back to M'sia next year. it's a big deal for me that i'm eating a lot as most of my frens would know, i don't really eat much.

I think it's the cold weather that made me have such a big appetite. yessss that's it. agree?? yes yes. hehe :D i mean, i had 2 boxes of potato wedges, a personal garlic pizza bread and a personal vegetarian supreme frm Domino's. the garlic bread was scrumptious! it was soft and had some cheese on it. yes i know i can't take cheese(nanti migrain) but sometimes i've gotta try it don't i?! thank god i didn't get migrain after that. :) and for breakfast just now, i had a bowl of rice krispies, 1/4 waffle with honey n 4 mini glutinous rice balls filled with red bean. maybe i should just continue with my big appetite till after winter. after that, i think i'ld better cut down a bit. ;)

Raja Nor Soraya is motivated through joint collaboration and likes to
work in groups. Advocates do not tend to be argumentative, but will hold grudges if situations are left unresolved. This tends to happen due to their fear of confrontation. Advocates may have difficulty being honest about things if there is a fear that there will be devastating effects
to a relationship. Raja Nor Soraya prefers to make decisions based on facts as opposed to feelings. Raja Nor Soraya is usually seen as a humble and thoughtful person.

i want it to be hot n sunny!!!!!! oh god.. pleaseee

hello bloggy! c my title up there.. I WANT IT SO BADDDDD!!!!! it's SOOO BLOODY COLD N WINDY TODAY! it's different from the days before. i still can't imagine how bad it'll be once it's winter. waaaaaaaaaa :( MALAYSIA, I MISS U. last Thursday was my mom's birthday, and it felt weird singing to my mom thru video call. my bro-in-law was carrying the laptop up the stairs(surprise my mom as she was upstairs watching tv). i felt like i was in the tv looking out to the world. hahaha.Usually, the tradition in my family is to wake the birthday girl/boy/man/woman early in the morning like 4am or 5am and sing happy birthday and give presents. usually my dad or sis will shake the bed to wake me up when it was my birthday. but this year, due to the time difference, there'll be none of that. :( but anyway, i still got to sing happy birthday to mama! :)

last Saturday, i attended the Jamuan Raya LUMSS. LUMSS stands for Lancaster University Malaysian Students' Society. and us first years had to organise the games, drinks n one of us had to become the MC. so we had a short meeting in my kitchen last wed, and 6 of us.. the other 2 couldn't make it(8 first year students frm malaysia). yea i can count.. cool eh? :P anyway, yeah all 6 of us gathered in my room cause we wanted to use the internet. SEMPIT GILER. hahahha. and all of us were thinking about what should we ask the adults on Malaysia.u c, we had to make a quiz on malaysia. yeaaa. then we mixed it up with a little bit of "Teka Lagu Raya" :)the games for the kids was the 3 legged race and then pop the balloon. i think they had fun. we gave out Glow Sticks too! :) so the MC was... ME! first time babe. huhuhu. syakir was suppose to be the MC. then he freaked out so asked me instead. then i was like FINE lah cause he helped to buy this book i've been wanting so yea.. thought i owe him one. so here's a pic of me n the other MC, Syahir for the night.

that very same night, there was an election for the new AJKs for Kelab UMNO Lancaster & Morecambe(KULM). as i was busy looking at my text(MC kan) i heard my name being called out. so i had to stand up. being very blur at that time.. i didn't know what was going on. then i heard someone saying "cadangan ditutup" then i was like.. WHAT?! for what post is this? and the guy said "Secretary" :O! tak pernah pernah dlm hidup aku jadi secretary.. tiba2 jer.. (dalm hati i said that). hehe. i've always been the bendahari or something else la. but NOT secretary. i hate writing! but since they've given me the responsibility, how can u say no, right? but i guess it'll be a good exposure for me. get to meet some upper people if u know what i mean. Nadia got the position as treasurer. and syakir as vice pres. so i've my frens in there as well, should be ok :)

frm left : Nadia, me, Nana, Danny n Luqman

i gtg now, off to Nadia's house to do assignment! adios amigos!

it's S O R A Y A

see the title, yea, i have to say that to most of the locals i met here. apparently they have never heard the name Soraya before. hard for them to say it. but once they got it, gosh i just love the way they say it with the british accent! ada class gituh. ;) i'm getting a wittle bit stressed out, tiny bit as there are lots of stuff for me to read and most of em are hard to understand. but the lecturers said that it will be kinda tough to understand the reading material anyway. :( . takper, first time kan. i was suppose to go to London this weekend right?! like what i've stated in the previous post. WELL, tak jadi. why? cause my senior kinda forgot that i was suppose to tag along with them. so i had to book the ticket last minute and wouldn't get the same train/time as them. which means that i'll go alone WHICH i'm not fond of. cause it's my first time to london n being a girl, it's kinda dangerous lah kan. my mom was against it so i cancelled the ticket and get my refund. (nasib baik boleh refund). was soooo excited about going there. gonna meet up with yaz, ika, n maybe ju vern tapi apakan daya. huhuhu. well, there's always next time! :)

neway, there are a lot of group projects for me. 3 subjects and i have 3 group projects. haih.on the 25th, i'll have this field trip at Forrest Hills, near to my uni. some team building stuff. kinda excited about it! hope it'll be fun. but according to the event manager, it'll be really wet n damp n might rain as well. bongek betul. well,that's for my business n management subject. for my accounting subject, one of my group members looks like Kimi Raikkonen + Michael Owen. haaaaaa hehehe! ;) besides that,one of my classmates from my management & organisation class is soooooo cute. jambu tahap maximum punya jambu ar. there are loads of good looking/jambu people here i tell ya. the girls are hot as well. anyway, kena concentrate on studies. MUAHAHAHHAHA. :p

korean guys? did i hear anyone saying what about the korean guys that i want? hmph, takder sorang pun. well, i made frens with this korean girl. good god i thought all korean girls are very soft spoken. sekali tgk yg ni, very manly. even the way she talks@tomboy. but she's really nice. Nadia n I get along very well with her. she knows Rain, daniel n dennis. so yay! hehe. oh oh! just now, athirah@tyra, my ex-collegemate, fellow KYUEMian came to my flat!!!!!!! i was sooo surprised to c her! Nana, my fren in lancs, said that kocha@senior frm KY dulu, will be coming over as she has a cousin staying here. apparently she's in the same uni as tyra. i'm soooooooooo happy to have met tyra just now!!!!!! i miss my kyuem frens really bad!!! listenin to athirah talking just now and gosh how i miss her style of talking! she has her own way of talking btw. i'm sure those of u who knows her know what i'm talking about. oh n my ex-schoolmate back in form 2 is in Leeds as well. i hope somehow Tyra n him will end up together, i think they look kinda cute together. HAHAHAHAHA. :p

and OHMAIGAWD, i just found out frm my fren, that one of my kyuem frens got engaged!!!!! like OHMAIGAWD. i can't believe it. a chinese couple. i shall not name them and same goes to any of u if u were to comment on this post. if u know who i'm talking about, keep it 2 urself. can gossip at msn or ym. :p i don't know whether it's true or not. but so far, according to my fren, it's true. but i still need to get more details on it. huhuhu. but kalau diorang tak kahwin, mmg pelik ar. they're like "destined" to be together. :) very sweet couple i must say. both are very nice n soft spoken. i kept saying omg when i heard about it. hahahha. alrighty, need to go look up some stuff and esok gi jln2 kat town!!!! maybe i'll post up some pictures. wheeeee! toodles! -hugs-

pictures.. like i stated in the previous post. ;)

Selamat Hari Raya!!!! @ Happy Eid Mubarak!

SELAMAT HARI RAYA EVERYONE! and maaf zahir dan batin. :) so yea, i'm in Lancaster now! seriously, it is FREEZING COLD HERE!!! and the wind. mmg rasa cam akan terbang ar. i think if my sis was here.. she'll b like mary poppins. one of the locals here told me that this is considered warm. WARM?! org dah nak mati beku ni. I CAN'T IMAGINE HOW COLD IT'LL GET IN WINTER!!!!!!! by the end of it, i'll be in a block of ice dah. hahaha. (yea i know.. lame isn't it).. hehe. back at the airport, i didn't sheda tear. not a single drop which i was kinda impressed with myself. my two darling bestfriends cried. awwwwwww. terharu i. u girls love me don't u. i know u girls do. i love u both too. anyway, when i was in the aeroplane HA KAU, nangis nonstop kut. all i could think of was my sister and my bestfrens. i switched on some songs to cool myself down, sekali lagu spice girls which made me cry harder cause i sang the songs with em a month back i think at redbox. so i was crying on n off. bila tiba2 mood emo datang. haa banjir la. then cool down. hehe. once we reached heathrow i was completely ok dah. :) spent almost the whole day coming to lancaster. as my parents n i travelled by bus. damn tiring.

my flatmates are frm pakistan. Shamaila n shazi. they knew each other back in college so they're very close. hence, always hanging out together in one of their rooms. which makes me feel left out sometimes. :( but it has only been two days since i've been in uni, i guess it'll soon work out ok. my other flatmate hasn't move in yet. met a few brits here. they're ok. nice peeps. some sombong like that girl who lives on the ground floor. BAPAK AR SOMBONG. hmph. there's an Italian guy living in my house as well. side view - GOOD. front view-alamak. HEHEHHE. most girls here wear short skirts and sometimes sleeveless. maybe byk lemak kut yg keep them warm. tapi tgk some tak chubby pun. used to it i guess. met a few other malaysians here. one frm sarawak,nana. very nice girl. had breakfast with her today. made her waffles but hangus and it was really hard. she said it's like eating biskut. i told her, that's ur first biskut raya here in lancaster. huhuhu. hey, it was my first time using that toaster oven. trial n error lah kan. made sausages n ate samosa. another would be nadia. jr. back in primary, been hanging around with her a lot. met luqman (kyuem jr.) n syakir (kmb@fadhil's n yahya's ex-schoolmate) today. pergi beraya rumah postgrads with them as well. oh oh! met an indonesian boy. cute cute. HAHAHA. can't really spell out his name tho.

neway, right now i am waiting for my personal tutor to come n meet my flatmates n gonna ask her stuff about my subjects. gonna need to pass up the enrolment form tomorrow morning. STRESS thinking about it. thought i blogged for awhile. oh yea, all of ya might not understand the concept of my house here. a building is called a house. mine is called Fence (the name of the house). and there are 3 floors. i'm on the 2nd floor. and each floor there'll be 2 flats. each flat will lead to 4 bedrooms n a kitchen. :) all the houses will belong to a college. my college is called Pendle. our mascot's the Witch. COOL GILA OK. missed out on the Witches n Wizards campus bar crawl. tak sempat beli costume plus tgh bulan puasa kan. but that's ok. ada byk lagi masa, so takper.

Hari ini Hari Raya tapi tak rasa cam raya. kenapa??? i didn't get to smell the nice smell of rendang daging n ketupat. tak dapat dgr takbir raya early in the morning. tak dapat bgn pagi tgk semua org siap2 lawa2. diri-sendiri tak dpt nak pakai baju raya lawa2 tetapi memakai baju tebal2 untuk meredah angin yg kuat dan sejuk. instead of seeing n spending time with ibu bapa tersayang, i had to say goodbye to them. pastu banjir. hehe. typical me. spent raya morning pergi dgr talk. FOR THE FIRST TIME, IT DOESN'T FEEL LIKE RAYA. :'( haven't had a decent raya since form 5. form 5. sibuk SPM. then trials kolej. then final exam. and now in UK. huhuhu. what to do. kan? I WIL SURVIVE! I WILL SURVIVE! sing with me! ;)

i'll put up pictures in the next post. just a few. the rest can be seen in facebook later on. :)

a few hours left.. thought i doodle some stuff

yesterday night i couldn't sleep.. too excited to fly today? nehh. really sad to leave my crib. my green n white bedroom. my cats. i am really really gonna miss Romeo n Lady. gonna give them a good squeeze before i go. love them to bits. well neway, yesterday night, the topic that was going on with me n my two bestfriends was all about him. (oh teringat lagu mcfly.. it's all about uuu.. it's all about u.. lalala). erm the dude. i just came back from izyan's house and got a msg frm her saying that she saw him. off all the people kan. hahaha. so talked about him lah kan. then a few hours after that, azdianur called me up full of enthusiasm. i could even sense it on the phone. dasyat kan. apparently he follows up on my blog!!! dude.. i didn't know that u follow up on my blog?! i thought he just read that one post when i gave him my blog address and that's it. i guess he must be really pissed off when he read "that" post huh. but at least now u know why, right? sorry if i was a bit over. had a bad day that day as written in that post. hence the terlebih emo. hehe. but that was how i felt at that time. whatever's written in this blog is the truth and nothing but the truth. it seems that i'll always have something to talk about him then. i have friends who are connected with his friends. i guess it's okay. by the time i return back to m'sia.. all will end well! :) need time to adjust. just like before. so long farewell. Lancaster HERE I COME!!!!!

OH WAIT! i forgot to put this in the previous post..

YESTERDAY i went to collect my visa and guess who i saw collecting his visa too?!!!!! MY HANDSOME BOY!!!!!!!!!!!!! yay!!!!!!!!!!!!! ahahahaaa! so happy while waiting for my turn. yazira give up ngan soraya masa tuh. ahhahaha! lalalala! suka suka suka. k just thought i'ld share this good news! :p

the last night i'll be spending in M'sia..

wwwwwoooahhhhhhhh! i can't believe it!!!! i'm actually flying tomorrow night!!! ohmaigawd.. huhuhu. hopefully all goes well. :) neway, last monday was my first time driving to KL. went there with Pam. i wanted to visit the national monument as i've never been there b4. I KNOW! ada ke. hehehe. then Pam wanted to go to the Bird Park cause she's never been there b4. so YAY! then we still wanted to jln2 so went to carcosa seri negara. we were so excited to look for the Galeri Seri Perdana, we found it but then it was closed! maka hampa, so we wanted to go to Istana Negara. we failed to do so as we got lost! hahahah! i know it's along the highway. pam knew that too. but we forgot which highway it was. hahaha! called topan for directions, and pam was my navigator, had some misunderstanding of the directions given by topan. so, sesat lah kami. we drove till Jalan Thambypillay n Jalan Scott area. huhu. sooooo exhausted! both of us were fasting! hahahah. serious takder keje kan puasa2 nih. but it was worth it baybeh!

The next day, i went to the curve to buka puasa with my college buddies. most of the girls couldn't make it. tinggal i sorang. well there's shahira n mot's cousin, Ana. she is the sweetest girl ever! and gosh, does she likes to take pictures alright! byk gile gambar dia ambik. hence, there's a lot of my picture in her camera! hahahahha! glad she was there. if not i sense a little bit of awkwardness. anyhoo, all in all, it was a nice dinner! at tony roma's. the chicken i ate was sooo filling. pergh. yeah mmg lah tak habis kan, exactly what the guys had expected. :p

packing is driving me insane!!!!!!!!!! i hate to pack!!!!! i'm gonna have trouble packing my stuff there in the UK. no one will be there to help me. no fiza(usually fiza would help me pack my stuff), no chor, n no mama. huhuhu. my check-in luggage is still overweight! gedik ar. can't u just lose ur weight like i did?! ha bag? hehe. well, hand luggage are all done. gosh, this will be the last night for me to sleep in my comfortable bed! waaaa golek2. haih. i shall not blog till i reach Lancaster. so, till then, TOODLES MY FRENS!!! hope to c u in the UK and next year when i come back for the holidays!!!!! I LOVE U ALL! XOXO!

oh laparnya daku.. huhuhu

i am sooo hungry right now! well dah nama pun puasa right. sabar sabar. i only have 4 more days left. then i'm off to Lancaster!! i'm now a bit excited as i saw my fren's pictures and seems to have fun there! i'm really sad about leaving my home n my frens tho. huhuhu. all these while, the longest time i would be away from my bestfriends would just b a month or two. NOT A YEAR. last Friday, after buka puasa, i went to McD with the funky munkies. it was the first time they brought along their boys. usually when we hang out, it will only be US and no one else. so it'll only be girls lah kan which sometimes bf diorang will ask kenapa diorang tak boleh ikut. HAHAHA. apalar. sometimes we need a girl outing. sooo that night i thought why not just bring them along la kan. so azd brought her bf, aimi brought her ex n fiq brought one of her scandals. i've met them all b4. so i forced intan to bring her bf BUT he couldn't make it. GEDIK ARH. hhahhah. apparently, according to intan, he's very very shy. well, once he meets the funky munkies, don't think he'll be shy anymore or tak nak hang out ngan kitorang langsung after that. u better bring him to the airport ok!! i nak tgk. :p

*read on if u're in the mood to read. if not. don't. (it's just my rintihan hati. hahahaha. melayu gile.)

i had a bad evening actually on friday. it's just that i didn't get what i wanted for buka puasa. but i craved for it so it made me moody. and then i saw this guy whom i really hate right now. ha why not we talk about him kan! k i don't hate him lar, wait.. yea i think i do after thinkin about what he did. ANYWAY, back then in high school, i had this HUGE crush on him. like suka gila. hehe. he's 2 years older btw. so then after some chatting, calling and going out. well we went out twice jer. we had some misunderstanding and then we stop contacting each other. we only sms each other to wish birthday wishes and hari raya. (actually this is the shorter version of the story.. it's soo much longer. hahhaha) neway, continuing my short story, after about 5 years of not contacting me, he suddenly smsed me asking me to teman him to keep him awake cause he wanted to study. so i did. cause i was studying too at that time as A levels was a only a few weeks ahead. i thought he just wanted to u know ask how was i doing and all. but then the next week, he just poured his heart out at me which shocked me like WHAT THE HELL. he asked me that question. which i replied with a no. it's just impossible. i've gotten over him which took me about a year to get it over with! and suddenly dia senang2 jer mintak orang macam tuh? i was pissed off that night. i had pija next to me when all this drama happened. kinda funny tho.

neway, after that rejection, i didn't reply his smses after that. soon enough, he emailed me, saying all those stuff again. by this time, i've made the conclusion that he's one desperate guy. again it was drving me mad. as i have to concentrate on my studies and all. i mean, yes sometimes when i think about the past, i kinda miss those times BUT it's not my fault. if he had asked me back then, it would have been a yes. but now, thinking about me leaving for the UK and all. i am one who doesn't believe in long distance relationships. and at the point of him being desperate. HELL NO. so i decided to just stay frens with him. i know it would be weird as i don't think we started of as frens too. was never an item with him either. just a high school crush. but i am proud to say that i went out with one of the cutest seniors! MAUAHAHAHAH. i know my schoolmates would agree. ;) not my mom tho. huhuhu. don't wanna go to that part of my memory. after my A levels, back at home, sometimes we chat. normal stuff. didn't touch that topic anymore. oh yeah, i was also pissed with him cause he had some scandal going on with one of my close frens. yea, was pissed with her as well. but she didn't realise that tho. how inconsiderate of her. even if i don't have anything to do with him anymore but as a close fren, it's just wrong! never date ur fren's ex! even if it's jsut an ex-crush!

neway, i did go out with him a few months back. haha. cause i won a bet and asked him to buy me presents. lalala. i think i've mentioned this b4 in one of my previous posts. now i regret asking him to buy me those presents cause when i wore them or look at it. it reminds me of him. CURSES! after all those commotions, he has a gf now! guess he got over me. so fast right? toyed with my feelings!! fine, i don't want u tapi cepat gila siut dpt gf. shouldn't have done that to me!! why did u come back to me?!! tak baik tau. to make him as a fren now is just impossible. he changed. thank god i made the right decision. i hope i won't find another guy like u. neway, good for him that now he has a gf. don't bother me anymore! oh about my close fren, she thought of bringing him to that hang out at mcd that night cause her scandals can't go. can u believe that?! that time mmg biatch giler ok. she knows that he has a gf now and yet she wants to bring him along. what on earth! she had the nerve to call me n ask me that!! gave her a big fat NO. at the end, one of her scandals did show up. whom i don't like at all. budak kecik perasan hebat. hmph. kurang pahala soraya. huhuhu.

i'm glad i met my frens that night who made me happy. and at that time, i put it behind about her being a biatch. cause she IS my fren. nothing can break that.

i turned 20! huhuhu..

yesterday was my birthday, i am now 20 years old. dang, how time flies huh! didn't do much yesterday. was alone at home in the morning. well, it's kinda my fault cause i didn't wanna follow my parents out due to my laziness. then a close friend of mine called me. so i got him to keep me company for awhile. laugh my ass off listening to him complaining about his ex. told him Love is blind! tak caya! blinded by her ex's beauty. ANYWAY, i went to Tropicana Golf n Country Club for buka puasa with my family and my mom's bestfriend n her husband. and GOSH, there were loads n loads of food!!! like seriously i think the ramadhan buffet was the best i've ever been to!! there were putu piring n apam balik which were made fresh there, rojak mamak, rojak buah, buah pulasan!, langsat, satay, all sorts of jellies, steamboat, and much much more! u don't even know where to start! ohhh now i'm making myself feel hungry. nooooo. well, this is what u call fasting right mate! suppose to go buka puasa with my college buddies today, but i forgot that i've a doctor's appointment n i don't think i can make it in time. dgn jam kat KL suma nanti. huhuhu. i had it all planned edi! and pam couldn't make it as well, kena jaga her grandpa. the guys went ahead with it anyway. cis.

oh oh! i shall put up a few pics of my family n i breaking fast at tropicana y'day..
