Lately I have been too busy to even update my baby blog but not anymore! I woke up this morning promising myself that I will make a new post today, REGARDLESS how busy I'll be. hihi Well, I have so many things going on around me that I wanna share today.
To begin with, I'll have my third module exam in 4 weeks time which is very very near already :S That's why I've been back and forth to the library whenever I am free. Studying at the library is really peaceful and it helps me focus 2x better! I still feel a bit nervous about this coming exam as my previous exam was very tough. Anyhow, I'll try to do even better this time. Pray for me please, dear friends <3

For those who knew me, they'll know that I hate to exercise but things are changing now. I went to the gym twice last week and I plan to make it a habit! I really love the facilities there, the machines are so huge. Well I never been to a gym before, perhaps every gym is just the same huh? hehe I love to feel my muscles working and especially the feeling after exercising. Ahh I felt so good after my gym session, as if my body is thanking me for doing it by pumping more and more blood to every cell in my body! haha Weird analogy I said there :P

Have you ever watched "Legend of the Guardians"?? I love the movie so much. I watched it back in 2010 and I just fell in love with the owls in it, especially the barn owls. I remember having them as my laptop's screensaver for a long time. They are the cutest thing alive! Who'd knew that after 2 years and in such random place, I would get the chance to be up close with them, the barn owls??? It was just like every other day in UCC main campus but, wait up, I spotted cuteness! It was the barn owl!! :O I get to hold it and touch it and even kiss it's head.. hihi Such a dream come true, Alhamdulillah!

Another exciting thing happened recently in Malaysia, my family went to Kelantan to 'merisik' for my uncle. 'Merisik' is the first and foremost step that is required in marriage. So the guy's family will have to go to the girl's house to seek whether she is still available or not. Basically that's the purpose of merisik, it is a tradition in Malay's marriage. Back to my uncle, the 'merisik' part has been officially passed, So now, the girl is going to be my future auntie this July! Wedding, aahhh such an exciting event to come home to :D
|This is just a quarter of my family! hihi|
As you know, I mentioned 'to come home to' earlier right? hihihi Well, I BOUGHT MY TICKET HOME TO MALAYSIA ALREADY, WEEEHOO! I am so excited for it! I tried searching for a cheaper ticket but unfortunately their method of payment requires a credit card or VISA. I don't have neither. Instead, I just have a Laser card which is not too bad cuz there is this one website that accepts Laser cards but yeah, the price is a BIT higher compared to the other websites.. *You can't have it all ey? :P * For those who are in search for flight tickets, these are some websites that offers cheap ones up for grabs!
Life has been good so far, Alhamdulillah. I appreciate all the changes that is happening all around me cuz I know it's for the best! Living alone, for the first few months has been quite hard on me cuz all my life I've been living with my family or 20 mins away from them *that's the far I'd be from them hihi* Now I realized, living independently has its own beauty. Teaches me there's more to life and I need to learn to be happy with my own company. Plus, living here, far away from mama and papa, teaches me to love them more, to love my big family and friends more! I am just so thankful that I get to start learning about living independently here in Cork, the best place to start! Hope for more exciting life experiences ahead of me, insyaAllah :D
Let us all improve ourselves to be better people and may all of us have an exciting life ahead of us!
Till then, take care..
