SELAMAT HARI RAYA HAJI!

my first eid korban in malaysia after 6 years (and i'm spending it at home!!). quite ironic eh? (ppl edinburgh must know what i'm talking about..)

nway.. feel like doing some flashback.. walking back down the memory lane.. jom join jom..

shrring shring shriiiiing..... (sound effect teringat masa lampau macam style drama swasta... :D)

kat edinburgh kalau nak raya, aku ngan housemates (N and Nani yang sekarang dah jadi bini orang yang sah) mmg suka laa main masak2. mana teringat nak makan macam kat rumah di malaysia, sure kitorang try. yang mengagumkan tu, alhamdulillah semuanya menjadi (except agar2 N yang sekali tu ada rasa bawang!! kikiki). oh no, that didn't dampen our spirit to make something grander!!

nway, perangai kalau raya (tak kira raya haji or raya puasa...) the nite b4 tu kitorang plan nak pakai baju apa.. kekadang sampai sanggup jahit seaquins and other decoratives on our 'lining' scarves until late at nite! masa tulaa explored each others' harta on tudung and such. memang this group of ladies love to menjangok - islamic way, memang terkenal laa kat edinburgh tu! hheheeh... (hope you ppl still continue the tradition!)

pi smayang raya.. lagi 5 minit nak start baru keluar rumah.. tak insaf2 dari first year, sampai laa aku final year.... pernah terpaksa semayang kat bukan kawasan semayang since the mosque was too full (sebenarnya mak2 arab yang tak pandai rapatkan saf!). oh yeah.. on the eve of the eid, we made some 'calls' for invitations.. that was to make sure, after solat sunat, we knew where we would be heading to! usually it would be 5-6 houses and we would arrive back at home midnite. tak ke sakan namanya tu! ada satu raya tu, nak kata sakan tak sakan, we even rent a car to make sure our journey would be easier! dahsyat ek?

it was a wonderful experience.. really. how i wish i could go back to my undergraduate years... well, life has to go on..

and now, i am sitting in front of the computer, trying to tie up loose ends on my thesis proposal on eid day. isn't it totally different from my life abroad?

anyhow, i'm heading down for the surau at noon. perhaps i can sip some hot fresh soup from the qurbans. eheh.. escaped the hard work.. dont think 'melapah' is listed in my favourite things.

gotta leave the blog soon.. but consolidate this..

"Kata-kata itu sebenarnya tidak mempunyai makna utk menjelaskan perasaan.
Manusia boleh membentuk seribu kata-kata, seribu bahasa.
Tapi kata-kata bukan bukti unggulnya perasaan"

coolness, eh?

bubbye, maas-salamah!

Ya Allah, berilah kekuatan pada hamba-Mu!!

i'm feeling down the longkang @ the moment. got 4 assignments to hand in tomorrow.. finished them all but are they answering the qs? arghhh... dulu masa kat edinburgh takde lak masalah gini.. pesal pulak balik mesia ni payah benar nak buat kerja eh? banyak sangat dosa kott... tu pasal laa payah sikit nak buat kerja.. tak pun dah tua, my left and right hemisphere are lateralized.. (fewwitt.. that's psycholinguistics ppl!)

nway, got 2 presentations on 'Critical Period Hypothesis' as well as 'Cyprus Language Planning and Policy' for the morrow. All my powerpoint files and OHPs are ready (but me? am i ready? jeng-jeng-jeng...).

must admit that this level of study is rather challenging, but good for the mind. it keeps me thinking (of other things rather than 'pap-pap-kepang-kepong')! :p

pray for my fluency during my presentation yah?

phew, my first time to blog in. oh well, we must start somewhere in anything we do, ain't it?

well, today is the date to mark that i've been in this world for a quarter of a century! alhamdulillah, things in life are moving on smoothly and swiftly. episodes in my life, kalau di bukukan, would be a best seller! i bet!! :)

my bros and sis came home with their young ones to be with me and my parents. we had a bbq party at the back garden! SYOK wooo.. mak buat steam boat. nanti kalau rajin, i think i wanna upload some pic of the day. oh yea.. the choc banana cake from secret recipe was superb!

pressies... after being away from home for 6 years.. getting presents from friends, it's special to recieve some pressies from my family members... (and they're kinda kool pressies too, i must say!!). here's the list..

abah: half-cap (camni ke eja?) tayar satria ku!
mak: a new set of 916 gold ring and bracelet
bg pin & kak yati: kain ela buat baju kurung
bg kamal & kak sue: a new knitted blouse

mmm.. and it would be unfair if i dont include a pressie recieved from my princy. an original recitation of a poem straight from the heart.. coolness gelle!

oh well.. i'll be adding more to the blog later on.

caucincau...
