Missing Miri

There were times in your life when you would keep looking to a point of your past as that point gave you the the best part of your life journey. Same goes to me, when it comes to my internship in Miri. How am I supposed to forget all the memories when...

The place no longer makes dogs a taboo for you..
-Kebun Ayah Sya, October 2010

You're visiting a new place just for the sake of new experience, but you end up having a photograph with Maher Zain..
-Masjid Sultan Hasanal Bolkiah, Brunei, July 2010

Your lecturer has been telling you about the nodding donkey in the class, but now you have the real machine working 5 meters from you..
-Brunei, July 2010

Your friends make a surprise birthday celebration while having breakfast at mamak's restaurant when jungle-trekking is the only thing that plays in your mind..
-Mamak restaurant, Bintulu, 27 November 2010

You're too excited to throw a surprise birthday celebration to someone close in the thick Borneo Rainforest, so you wrap the birthday cake with a non-see-through plastic..

Not knowing the waterfall you're heading to would take you an hour of ups and downs the hill.. So the SR Raspberry Cake you bought ends up melt in the box and left you with this..

But still, the mission is on.. So you take the ugly cake to the birthday girl who was having fun in the water (got this planned as well)..

..but unexpectedly, the birthday girl ends up happy with the surprise, and the ugly birthday cake as well! :)
-Athirah's birthday, Nibong waterfall, Lambir Hills National Park

When you have friends who can sing well (with a not-so-well facial expression while singing), who can sing not-so-well-but-quite-OK (haha), and play guitar well..

And you enjoy being the cameraman and director for the video clip..

When hiking is the only option that you have to entertain yourself..
-Dinding waterfall, Lambir Hills National Park

... but the friendships, and the green views that you have, are just worthwhile :)
-Dinding waterfall, Lambir Hills National Park

When you think that baling selipar is the best game; rather than your FB Cupcakes.
- Pantai Bungai, Bekenu

- Sarawak Shell 100 years Anniversary Celebration - Treasure Hunt dry run
When you and your team are instructed to build the highest replica of platform for the sake of completing a task in a treasure hunt contest, your team come up with this;

This one is SPAR anyway, replicating this;

Same tak? Haha

When you and your friends are convinced that part-time modelling is the best job for you, despite the other things you're really up to.
- Oil Spill Exercise, Pantai Lutong

When weekend outing is a must :)

And watching sunset with your friends is part of your weekend activity..
- Tanjung Lobang, Miri

And despite of all the workloads, the friendship is still there :)

Now tell me how I'm supposed to forget all these memories?

Boleh ke?

Boleh ke kalau nak menangis sebab your lecturer indirectly says that you're not on a par with her expectation?

Boleh ke kalau nak menangis sebab someone rejected your idea and look down on you?

Boleh kalau nak menangis kalau you want to meet someone's expectation but you have limited resources bounded around you?

Boleh ke nak menangis kalau you feel like you have nothing inside you?

Boleh ke?

New semester begins!

; with much disappointments.

The new semester is back; after a super-short, 10-day semester break. I just hate this new requirement that UTP has to follow for the sake of accreditation. It causes us the final year students to compact all 3 semesters in 12 months instead of 16! It can be simply said that we almost have no mid-sem break as all we've got was a 4-day break including Saturday and Sunday! I wish that you'd know how much I hate this accreditation thing; I wanna spend more time home with mak and abah. I hate the feeling when we're leaving home saying goodbye and promising that we'll be back soon :(

That was the first disappointment. Next comes the second.

Picture taken from here.

I love learning French, and my 4-year experience learning French during high school has never disappoint me but this time, I kinda wanna say 'I hate French' for this one reason :(

I failed to register in the course for my first attempt during my 3rd year as the slot was already full so I did the course registration much earlier this time and luckily, I managed to make myself in! However, as I stepped into the class, I was taken aback seeing a large crowd in the class and it was like 3/4 full! And it's not the seats that were 3/4 full, but its the space in the class! You had let someone to kiss your butt just to make your way to the empty seats! Erghhhh.

- At first I wondered if the large crowd truly managed to register themselves in the PRISM (our online database system for registration etc.) for the course and as far as I concern, it's only those who managed to register themselves in the PRISM will make their way to the course!

- But it's opposite for this course! The lecturer will only take in those who first signed up MANUALLY in the class by writing their name in the list distributed at the end of the class!

- And no one was aware of 'that' system as the lecturer post the announcement in the online portal where no one can access until the end of the first week of the semester!

- And seeing there were so may guys queuing, I just had some little patience for my turn and that makes my name to be among the last and not accepted to be in the class! :(

And that was only 30% of everything that demotivated me within this 3 weeks. Now I'm wishing for a rainbow waiting me ahead :(
