Last Day of the Sem~!!

Yesterday, my coursemates & I went out for a class lunch to celebrate the end of this sem. We went to eat a BBQ steamboat buffet at Seoul Garden, Plaza Pantai, KL. (near to UM, beside the Kerinchi LRT station).

We had a reaaaaally good time there! ^_^ We paid the student price of RM25.20. If not, the adult price would be RM40++. *_* So, if you're a student n you wanna eat here, you'd better bring along your matric card.

Before stuffing our faces with food

It was an all-you-can-eat buffet~... We sat there for 2 hours, munching away.. I ate seafood, beef, meat (all these were to be cooked ourselves), green veggiesfruits, jellies, kimchi & of course ice-cream!! ^_^ This is my 1st time eating kimchi. It has a weird taste, but it's ok. >_^

This is the pot where we put in the seafood, the soup can be tomyam or chicken curry or anything you like

We BBQ the meat while waiting for the seafood to cook

Bon appetit!!!

We ate till our stomachs were about to burst!! Many of us were always saying "I'm full" & "I can't eat anymore", but we still kept eating anyway~..."^_^ Maybe coz we're food lovers! >_<

To make things worse, the waiter always came to refill our pot of soup. It's like he's never gonna let us leave. He wants to make us all fat & plump, so that he can eat us in the end! (hehe...influenced by Hansel & Gretel, obviously~..)

We've finally stopped eating

It has been so much fun! I hope that my class will do more luncheons like this next sem!

Well, to all of my classmates, see you in the exam hall!! ^_^ I really am welcoming these 3 weeks of holidays before the exam... N to top things more, I've juz bought a new hp, hooray~!! After much agony being a phoneless girl lady person for nearly 2 months, now I can call n SMS Hubby n my frens! >_< My old phone is broken & still isn't ok after being repaired. "-_-

A lot of Shakespeare, a little bit of Romeo & Juliet

Like I've said before on Monday, my group had to a presentation on Shakespearean Language + a scene of the famous Romeo & Juliet play (Act III, Scene V). Ma Lan n Min Yao did the powerpoint presentation, while Sheila played Romeo, I played Juliet & Aasha was the nurse. See us in this video below, click here. (Fyi, I still haven't watched it myself! Too afraid~!! T_T)

OK, now for pics...(as requested by my dear fren Syud). These pics are courtesy of Aasha n Voon.

Sheila, Min Yao, Aasha n me (Ma Lan snapping the pic)

Me & Aasha

Now you can see that I'm wearing the dress-like abaya that I've mentioned on Monday. The dress Aasha brought for me was a little too sexy, so we juz decided I continued wearing the abaya.

Focus on the ring plz!! ^_^
 All the accessories I'm wearing are Aasha's: the necklaces, the fan + the lovely pink ring! Yeah, do take a close look at the ring I'm wearing. It's super duper lovely~!! N to top that, Aasha kindly said that I can have it, the ring she bought from Iran!! Owh, Aasha, you're such a sweet cake! ^_^ Thanks a bunch!!!

Dr Amitav n my classmates

These are the rest of my classmates for the Language Evolution class. We had a great time laughing n having fun last Monday, our last Evo class, mind you. N we will sure miss Dr Amitav teaching us! ^_^

Nuffnang newbie~..

Yup, although I've started this blog months ago..but I didn't know I thing about Nuffnang. When I visit frens' n other people's blogs, they all have this "Nuffnang" thingie. What is it exactly? soothe my curiosity, today I went to Nuffnang's website n learnt what I've been missing all this while. "-_- I could've earned more $ if I had joined Nuffnang months ago. Owh well...

Therefore, I'm officially a Nuffnanger. Yeay~!! ^_^ (applause, plz, applause...)

To all those senior members, plz assist me if I have any Nuffnang probs in future. Thnx!! >_^

A special thanks to:

for giving me the inspiration to be a Nuffnanger!! ^_^

A Not-so Typical Day~...

How absent-minded I am today. I've forgotten to bring my student matric card + my student rapidpass TouchN'Go card. "-_- So I'll be wasting RM7 worth of money juz on bus fares today~... I can't even hop on the UM shuttle bus F.O.C w/out my matric card.

I guess I'm juz nervous...coz this afternoon, I'll be playing Juliet in "Romeo & Juliet". "^_^ 2 of my classmates n I will only be playing one scene from the play, while another 2 friends will be presenting the Powerpoint slides on Shakespearean Language.

Right now I'm wearing an abaya that sort of looks like a dress, with a shawl. Yeah, maybe it's not the right costume for Juliet, but where can I get an Elizabethan dress?? My fren Aasha said she has a dress for me. Let's juz see if it's better than this abaya...n if it fits me! "^_^ Hehe..

Out to Subang Parade~...

This morning, I went out with Ummi (my mom), my lil sis Ijah, my lil bro Aslam n of course my cute baby Hannah. We went to Subang Parade.

First, we headed to Parkson, bcoz Aslam wanted to buy Lego to add to his big collection of it. I bought a toy for Hannah, a shape sorter. If you don't know what it is, take a look at the pic below - although that's not the exact toy that I bought, but I juz wanted you to get the idea of how this toy generally looks like.

This is what a shape sorter toy looks like

Embarassingly, this is the 1st toy that I have ever bought with my own money. Previously, Hubby would be the one to buy toys for Hannah. But we didn't have to buy that many toys, coz there are loads of toys that used to belong to my siblings, now they're all Hannah's, hihi.. XP

Next, Ummi went for a facial treatment at Clarins, while the remaining us went to MPH bookstore to read some books n magz there.

Later, we all went to KFC for lunch, using the discount vouchers that we got. So, we ate n drank 10 pcs of chicken, 2 small-sized coleslaw, 2 small-sized mashed potatoes, 2 cheesy wedges n 4 carbonated drinks...for only RM40.10. ^_^

Then, we got into the car n headed to KLIA to fetch Ayah (my dad) who's juz flewn back here from Sabah. We went home after that.

Well, that's pretty much what happened today. Tomorrow, my newly-wed cousin n his wife are coming over for lunch. That means I have to wake early tomorrow, bcoz this house is a total mess!! >_^

Btw, speaking of Hubby earlier, I reaaaallly miss him! Huhu~... T_T Luv u Hubby!!

P/s - I've juz noticed that I have 13 followers now!! I'm so hepi!!! ^_^ Hihi..

Introducing...Baby Hannah Husna!!

Her most recent pic

Full name: Nur Hannah Husna binti Mohd Faizal
D.O.B.: 23rd April 2009 ( easy to remember! ^_^)
P.O.B: University of Malaya Medical Centre, Kuala Lumpur
Age: 1 year & 5 months
i) Hannah (general nickname, also teh name that my family & relatives call her)
ii) Husna (special nickname that's only used by Hubby & I)
iii) Yuna (the nickname that Hubby's side of the family call her)

--> Baby Hannah loves playing with brick toys such as Lego & Duplo.

--> She likes playing with water! If she sees anyone washing the car or watering the plants, she'll join in, not to help, but to play! ^_^ Hubby & I like bringing her to the water park at KLCC. She loves playing there. Once, she was the only one crawling around in the water, all the other children were bigger than her as she was still young at that time. Here's the proof:

--> Consequently, she loves bath time as well. She has her own bathtub and she can be in it for a long time - playing with bubbles, her rubber ducky & other toys. Occasionally, we bring out her bathtub on the front porch or the back lawn so that she can bath outdoors.

--> Baby Hannah is totally obsessed with raisins!! She'll eat n eat n eat if we don't stop her. 

--> She likes cats, thus she loves playing with Mitten. Plus, Baby Hannah has a very cute way of saying "meow". >_^

--> She can call 'Papa' (Hubby), 'Atok' (my dad @ her grandpa), 'Nan' (my mom @ her grandma), 'Ijah' (my sis @ her auntie), 'Acam' (my lil bro @ her uncle)..but she still can't call 'Ibu' (that's me).. T_T

--> Baby Hannah loves the outdoors & going for walks. If she brings her shoes to you, then that's an obvious sign!

--> She likes playing on the table. I juz don't know why~...

--> My daughter really hates cicak (geckos)...she's afraid of them! One day last week, she killed a baby gecko using a long stick! XP

Bus poem

Newsflash!! I accidentally fell down this morning when I was walking to the faculty while reading the newspaper. T_T Who's to be blamed?? Well... Blame myself for not looking where I'm going! And...Blame the hole in the pavement! Hahaha.. >_< My knee bled, but now the blood has dried out, but still, it stings.

Anyway, so here's a poem I composed while waiting for the bus the previous Monday.

The Typical Malaysian Bus

Bus, O, The red-and-white bus
I have been with you
since I started becoming an undergraduate
Sometimes you come early
Yet many times you have arrived late
Now I have been waiting for ten minutes

Bus, O, the two-door bus
The main transport I use
to get to the university
The only transport I use
to go home after classes
There are many modes of transport
Yet I still chose you form all those choices
Although I've been waiting for thirty minutes

Bus, O, The fashionably late bus
You have seen me in many ways
During my solo days
My married days
And even my pregnant days
I have been loyal and very patient
Even though I've been waiting for forty-five minutes

Bus, O, The typical Malaysian bus
Why can't you be like your friends?
Your friends from other countries
They arrive every ten to fifteen minutes
Waiting for them is like a breeze
I really do hope you would come soon
I don't want to wait
till I can see the moon
Currently I've been waiting for one hour!

Weddings + birth!!

--During the weekend that has previously passed by, 2 of my cousins got married. 1 on Saturday, the other on Sunday night. When I was still single, I used to help out n be the bunga telur girl (the person who gives out souvenirs to guests) with my other cousins. But nowadays, my sister n other younger relatives do that, I just come & eat! Hihi.. >_^

--The pics that I have are only of my cousin Hafiz's wedding (taken from a cousin's Facebook). XP I don't have any pics of my other cousin Wana's wedding.

The couple with the bridegroom's parents

With my parents ^_^

Guests can leave a note of congrats in this book
My baby Hannah with my lil sis Ijah & niece Naqia
The pretty sisters of the bridegroom on both sides of my cousin

--Who gave birth on 10-10-10? Well, my cat did. Actually, Mitten is a stray cat who wandered into our house for food. After some time, she eventually 'lived' here. She got her name 'Mitten' coz she's a black cat but her paws are all white, like she's wearing cute little gloves! >_<

--I saw the whole process of the birth (can u actually watch it?). She now has 4 cute & adorable kittens. We have yet to name them.

Belated September poem~

I know it's now October, but I lost the piece of paper on which I wrote the poem below, only juz now I found it in my drawer, haha!!

My September

September, September
The month to remember

The month of which
my husband and I were born
I was born on the first
My husband was on the twenty-seventh.

The bright blue Sapphire
is the gem of September
The month which is always
associated with nine
It is such a beautiful month,
It is simply divine

September, September
You will be in my memories,
forever and ever.

Found a long-lost schoolmate through blogging!!

Yup, the title of this entry is true to its words. That is the power of Internet, it connects you with people, even friends, or in my case long-lost schoolmates.

This happened about 2-3 days ago. There's this blog I'm following, :::Daffodil D:::, at first I thought the blogger was juz a random blogger. But then, when I saw pics of her, I said to myself: "Her face is so familiar!"

So...I asked Daffodil D a.k.a Dayana if she used to go to SK TTDI Jaya (a primary school which is in Shah Alam). Lo and behold -- she is a former schoolmate of mine! We used to be in the same class. 

I have been searching for my primary school friends (esp close frens) since I started having a Facebook account. But never did I expected to find one here! So,  thanks to as well, then!!

I would love to paste a pic of Dayana here, but I don't have her permission to do so. Juz check out her blog if you wanna know about her or see her pics.

Last bit from me, you shouldn't forget your friends, bcoz they help make up the most of your memories in life!! ^_^

* * *

Special note to Dayana:

Thnx coz follow kite in the first place.
Kalo x, kite mmg xfollow blk blog awk 
n then tau yg awk nie ex-schoolmate kite.
Hihi.. ^_^

Nisja 4eva!!

It's nearly 1.25 in the morning, n my eyes are really tired. I've just finished doing my English Language Evolution assignment, n will submit it tomorrow. Up till now, I've completed 3 assignments..n there's 1 more left that I have to do. "-_-

It's been nearly 5 days since I last saw Hubby, yet I miss him so much that my heart aches. Hubby is away in Kelantan, hope he's doing fine there.

2 days ago he sent me a picture message. He drew a sketch of him & I together, so touching!T_T I felt like crying when I saw it...Hubby, please come back home soon!

Nisja 4eva!!

Nisja is actually the combination of my nickname + Hubby's. Nisa + Ijal = Nisja. Hubby made it up when we were dating back then. We still use it until now. N with the arrival of baby Hannah Husna in our lives, we added her name to that special name too. Hence, Nisjahusna is also created. >_^

Raya 2010 Update~!! ^_^

Phew, currently I've been busy wif the Raya holidays, assignments (plus problems as well!), n only now have I the chance & time to update my blog. Yes, I know, Syawal is nearing its end, but I still wanna tell u about my Eid celebrations this year.

My big family
1st day of Eid:
--My parents, siblings (all 5 of them), baby Hannah & I celebrated the 1st day at my Pak Long's (my uncle) house in Kuala Lumpur. All of my relatives of my mom's side came here as well, since my grandma's house has been pulled down (to be replaced with my Pak Uteh's soon-to-be new house). Hannah received many duit raya (money given to children from adults & relatives who are working), and astonishingly, I got duit raya too~!! (Maybe coz I'm still studying, hihi..) ^_^

--That night, all of my relatives came to my family's house in Shah Alam. An uncle bought RM1000+ worth of fireworks, including those huge ones that u usually see during Merdeka celebrations n so on. We had quite a nice night! >_< 

My dear family (Hubby not in pic)

My dearest grandma Embun - the only grandparent left!

 2nd & 3rd day of Eid:
--We went to various relatives' houses, eating loads of food + putting on weight! Hihi.. >_^

Fireworks night

4th day of Eid:
--My family & I went back to my dad's hometown in Johor. It's been quite a while since we last went there. (There's even some of my cousins who I've forgotten their faces n names!! "-_-) We arrived back home the same night.

8th & 9th day of Eid:
--Hubby, Hannah & I went to KLCC to spend time together, then we got on the night bus to my hubby's hometown in Kelantan. Although I've planned earlier not to go to Kelantan this year since we've celebrated Eid 2 years in a row there previously, but Hubby missed his hometown so much, so eventually, I had to give in.

So...that's about it then! More pictures of my Eid celebrations will be posted in my Facebook account. Now, I'd better get back to doing my assignments. "-_-
