eat your heart out

/ Friday, December 12, 2008 /
these days, i spent nearly most of my waking hours on the couch with the laptop cling to me almost 24/7. even so, i cant seem to update this blog with anything. its not like i have nothing going on these past few weeks, plus i've encounter many great sites to share with everyone else. i just cant seem to have the mood for it.

anywayss, i've just read my mails and there's one from en nizam (my lecturer) that really caught my eyes. he's truly a born designer, reflected in his email as well. his email always very design-ish. everything is always related to what he tought us and what inspires him. he sent me videos of phillip starck--very thoughtful. and one about a restaurant in Latvia, im not sure what is the name of the place but here's something for your eyes.

i say, the owners really has so much going on in his head, in a very creative way. check out the nurses who'll be serving u, a bunch of hot nurseses with red wigs on. thumbs up for you mister!

the bartender :D

Grilled New Zealand mussels in spicy tomato sauce

Beef carpaccio with the syringe and the pinset. i cant say its very tempting, but thats something new. hehe

ps: eating anything here sounds very fear factor-y to me. hee

back to civilization

/ Thursday, November 20, 2008 /
as i browse around the net looking for inspirations for the new home, i came across Co-housing Intentional Communities only to realise that how great idea this co housing is. this got me thinking why on earth the Malaysian government never would've thought of this before, or the developer or whoever which is concern.

Malaysian government has continuously instill the Malaysian with courtesy but not working so perfectly, im sure everybody is aware of this kan. haha, not to criticise the system but what the Malaysian really need is togetherness, dont u think?

so, the co-housing concept forms a close community of friends and caring neighbors, a safe, supportive environment where children, elders, and families of all types can live in an energy-efficient and Eco-friendly environment, sharing communal resources and facilities. i can just imagine myself living in this neighbourhood, listening to the birds chirping, with children running around the neighbourhood without even worrying about the possibilities to get knocked down by a car. this feelings is just wonderful.

these concept is very similar to how our grandpas and grandmas live yesteryear, and there is nothing wrong in bringing back the old days with a few drops of modernism to go along. I believe that people now are seeking for a friendlier, people-oriented way of living based on communities and pedestrian living with closer neighbours where they can chat with at tea. community spaces with open areas and parks - all connected by green pathways and biking trails. that is definitely one step to a happy community, dont u think?

ps: i would've bought one house for myself if there ever be a neighbourhood like this in malaysia.

curtain closed

finally, just what i needed, semester break. holidays! Alhamdulillah, the exam went well, at least, i think it went well. i really need a few days of sleeping without any disturbance cause these few weeks my sleeping habit kind of reversing. similar to jet -lag except that i did not went anywhere with time differences,so, u know what i mean kan.

and i need to plan my holidays so that everything i need to do will be done this holidays. with me moving in to the new house, my holidays gonna be really busy and messy. but, i just cant wait to move out, sumpah seronok.

ps:im sooo going to missed de jamboree, but hopefully my holidays is great enough to top de jam off.

break me

/ Friday, November 7, 2008 /
After my English paper, I have a super long break, an 8 freaking days to anything but study. So what a better way to fill that 8 days? do u have to ask? haha

We ‘accidentally’ went to Ipoh on the Monday because the salon we intended to go was closed that day, so that practically an ‘accident’. An accident worth getting (was that even the right words, idk)

The next day only we went to the salon. I got myself a hair treatment, which was so relaxing and I don’t even have to pay so much money on it, compared to in KL, obviously kan.

The rest of the week, I stayed in watching movies, movies and movies! Really, I’ve watched like 13 freaking movies and one japan series already by now, in a 1 freaking week. For me, that’s quite a record. Haha , I have to tell u this, that japan series I watched was HANA KIMI. Im so in loveee with this series because it had everything I see in everyday life. Sweet, fun and a little bit of sentimental value to it. Sumpah I cried like a baby, (even worse I think a) at the very end of the series. At the beginning I kept wondering when will this series ever ended, it felt like forever going to the end of it. When I finally come to the end of it, I really don’t want it to end.

In the series, I really love nakatsu, he’s the happy-go-lucky guy I’d ever see, and he’s hot too to top everything off. And also sekime, everyone keep on forgetting his name but obviously not me. How can I, with the hair like that, so cute! And of course, everyone’s gotta love nanba-senpai, the senior, head dorm and also a playboy, but he’s cute anyway, wthellll kan. Oh and sano pun okayy la. Hehe. I can talk about them and never shut my mouth ever again if I don’t stop now. Ok stop, shut. :D

So, u should should should must must must watch hana kimi. Its like theee best Japanese series I’ve watched, like everrr, so far. Okay I should shut up now.

Til then, pray for my next paper okay, its on the nov 10th, and the last paper is on the 16th and then im coming home baby. Hehe.


Ps: my dear lecturer, puan suzy has successfully delivered a baby boy named Iman Danial. Its their (en. Nizam & pn Suzy’s) first baby. I just wanted to congratulate them on their welcoming of the newborn baby, may Allah bless your family en nizam.

im counting the days people..

CTU 283
BEL 311
INA 152
INA 162

these are the hardest time of the year, examinations week. but whats makes the week easier is always the family. i have always had mamayah's prayers, hani and adik(who wishes me "4 flat along!") which is cute. im trying to live up to that, but i dont think i will go near to that number 4.

to what is worth, i really think i did my best and i really hoped that i'll cheer the family back home with my results again. because the reaction i get from them, 2 semester in a row, i cant really describe in a words. i just love the look they gave me. i want that look all the way until i graduate for my diploma. InsyaAllah. and everything wouldnt happened if it werent for Allah, and because of the family really believed in me and dearest lecturers. i couldnt thank them enough.

gosh, this gets really emotional, hehe

anywayss, i wanna wish
hani - best of luck for ur coming spm, i know u can beat me.
adik - i know u already got that 1A for agama, tambah lagi.
and thanks mamayah for everything!
and all the friends who'll be taking exams this year. ttyl

ps: tak sabar nak pindah,yayyy


/ Tuesday, October 28, 2008 /
we're so sakai, we dont care :)

long time no write kann? im sure you would have known why kan? going to the 2nd year is harder than i thought it would be. you have to be really, i mean realllly really ready then only the lecturers will release (is that the word?) you to the 2nd year.

honestly. i myself dont really think im up to that standard, yet. and i dont even think im gonna top my previous semester's pointer this semester. when i looked at the previous seniors works, lecturer's work, i swear im so scared, i can even die that second. their drawings took my breath away, like sumpah kot. and it got me thinking again on me taking this ID thingy.

dont get me wrong, i love ID, its just that im afraid that im not good enough to be a designer. help?

BUT, tak la sampai nak quit kan. haha

ps: i missed blogging so much. wait til the holidays, i blog gila2 kot.

pps: through out next month i'll be sitting for my finals, wish me the best guys, love ya



/ Monday, September 29, 2008 /
off to ipoh! (againn) and i want to take this moment to wish all muslims


and on the 2nd raya we'll be leaving to KL, ayah's side. seronok!

ps: raya is like, theee best time of the year, like ever!

this just in!

/ Saturday, August 30, 2008 /

thats aizat, the konon-diva one, with me and yasmin(far left)

hi again. i just finished my apartment project and Alhamdulillah, it went well. yeah, not my best work yet but im just gladdd it ended. so, last wednesday the whole part 2 went to KL, pavillion and sunway tobe exact and boyyy it sure an exhausting trip. but i enjoyed the trip so much that i didnt actually sleep throughout the journey. this sure is better from the one i had last semester, dont ask.

ok so, just yesterday we had a brief on our last project which is a kiosk. not really a surprise for me since i've known abt it all along. i got a 3 new faces in my group for this project and i love them already. i just cant wait to start this project and we got all giddy just to mention about it. haha, except for azhari, he's the control/cool/macho one, but i know he's excited deep down inside. haha, righttt

so, i'll post more abt it next time. if, i have the time. :)

ps: Selamat Menyambut Hari Kemerdekaan to all Malaysians!


longgg month.

/ Saturday, August 16, 2008 /
yea, the title kinda speaks for me. u and i know that semester 2 would be a whole lot different, very busy+++ (and very tough too!) and so, not posting anything for nearly a month should not be a question. hehe

nvm, im here now. i havent come back home since the registration, it feels like forever. so now that im home, im going to spend every second IN it. there's nothing much change here, except that my cat has a pair of cute bells around her neck now. and its like sooo cute watching her run down the stairs with that cute noise the bells make. hehe

ok, back to work. we are assigned with new project last 2 weeks. its an individual project of course. we're suppose to design the interior of an apartment for a pretty complcated family. the husband is a very religious 55 y.o senior citizen, the wife is a 34 y.o XXXXXL size model who is VERY obsessed with exercising, the daughter is 18 and seems to be the only normal person in the house. so, the design have to meet certain requirements such as the traffic flows of the house should be very well revised since the wife is very F. this, makes everything more difficult and complicated as it already does. u have to confirmed abt the dimensions with the lecturer, u got to have ur time saver with u 24/7, and the most important thing is that u have to stay W I D E awake throughout the projects. so much to do, so little time.

thats basically what im doing right now. u know how i love to blog kan? but busy sikit kot skrg. i'll post something next time. i promise.


ps: its my 1-week mid term breaks now, but i dont feel like it. im only back home for a few days. this monday i'll be going back to perak. haish

birthday wishes

/ Saturday, July 12, 2008 /

i turn 19 today! yay, im old. hmph.

how worse can my birthday gets? i cant even get to celebrate my 19th birthday, the last 'teen' of my age with my family and friends. and im now stuck to my laptop, and going to the cc which is milessss away from the university, doing this toilet asgmnt. how niceeee. best birthday ever kot. ugh

i miss the family.and the cat.

who would have thought

/ Friday, July 11, 2008 /

guess what im doing for the first project?

you got that right! toilets! what a wayyy to start a new semester, haha
and i've been in and out from the uitm for the billionth time already now to do a research on toilets and i gotta say, i dont need to see any toilets anymore for a reeeeeeeally reeeeally long time. i think i've seen enough toilets to last me a lifetime, hehe


/ Tuesday, July 8, 2008 /
diana, i've read your post about the ungrateful friend which i knowww you are totally referring to me. yeah, i cant blame u for saying all those things. and im so sorry for not keeping in touch, for not keeping promises and for making you feel all those things you're feeling towards me. it just that, i dont planned all those things, yeah, its a tad cliche for me to give this reasons but its true.

and that night when we were suppose to chat together, my msn cant seem to work properly and my internet is just as bad. i dont believe in coincidence u know, but shit happens. u can think whatever you want about me, but to make u feel like a total idiot and push u aside was never my intentions. really, and i definitely "terasa pedasnya" when i read that post cos i know thats me you were talking all along.

but at the end of the day, its u who make the choice to still talk to this ungrateful friend of yours, i totally understand.

im here

/ Sunday, July 6, 2008 /
already, back in uitm perak. wait for the series of sleepless night, againnnnn.

ps: my new room suck! my locker cant even hold half of my things, so u go figure. ugh.


bye bye

/ Thursday, July 3, 2008 /
it's that time again. im going to perak for my second semester. saying good byes to the family, the cat, the house. who would've thought its 2 months already. how time flies when you're having fun. so i guess, i blog again when i got the time okay?

now offfff to perak, again. hmmphh.

i hate going away from the family. haihh.

diner & drive thru

/ Tuesday, July 1, 2008 /
i came across a few great diners and drive thrus, and i thought i should just post it here. and it kept me thinking why cant malaysia have all this kind of diner. the small-and-scattered-all-over-the-town kind of diner. cos i think its very convenient and definitely low cost(i think) and i sooo think any restaurant owner could afford it. plus, they're super cute! they can be a new attraction as i dont think any malaysian have ever tried the attempt on opening this kind of diner here, so.


/ Sunday, June 29, 2008 /
yesterday, we went for the school theatre. they said, st mary's always known for their great theatres. not that i know, cos i've only been to that school since 2003, and i think their great years was way way wayyy back then. and that 2003 itself, they did a musical on sound of music which was a hit but i didnt go, and i can literally taste the regretness in me for not going, haha

anyways, they did phantom of the opera yesterday. and they did greatttt, and i were even thinking of not going to the theatre before that. bodoh je. thank god i didnt listen to my heart, haha. but what i hate about it cos, we bought the rm15 ticket, and yeah i know, we deserve the back seat, but its too much okay if we'd to missed some of the scene where the actresses act out of the stage. and suddenly all the frontseat audience were all sitting so tall, cos they had to like practically stretched up their nect to see whats going on infront, leaving us terkapai-kapai at the back. cheap ticket, do i have to say more?

but i gotta say, i loveeee the props and all the costume. so victorian-y, soo vintage!

the only picture i have from the theatre, for now. i'll post more once i got them.

earlier today, we got to wake up as early as 10 to have breakfast(not to early,i know), but its weekends for god sakes! later after that, we went to see mak anjang, she was admitted in icu cos she was suspected to have dengue, and to top that off, she's pregnant. poor mak anjang, but the baby's okayy, so pheww. hehe. i ammm so excited to welcome 5 new babies to our freakishly huge extended family. 4 from ayah's side and 1 from mama's side, paksu.

we got to raya with new babies, cool. we had Audi Andrika. she's from paksu and auntie rose. just look at that name, i love it. i always gets so excited to what paksu will name their baby. cos they got all creative with it. first, Rose Julia, second, Chinta Seri (i love this name) and the latest, Audi Andrika. hehe, this make me more tak sabar to have my own babies so i can name them beautifully, haha.

Audi Andrika, and i know, not in her best look but this picture is from her cukur jambul and this is all i got for the time being. haha, but you're a baby, you can put all of Opah's bedah sejuk on your face and still look cute, hehe

and this is that Chinta i've been telling u about. how can u not cinta her kan?

and from ayah's side, we got kak ayu's and yaseer's first baby, Balqis Fazana( i hope i got this right) which is atuk&nenek's first great grandchildren. oh cool. finally, i got someone who'll be calling me auntie in a few years from now, when she can actually talk. cant wait! and we already had pak cik syukor's and cik sal's fifth baby, but im so so sorry, i forgot her name. SORRY! and coming up, we'll have mak anjang's and mak bi's. i sooo cant wait. i love babies, hehe

Balqis Fazana, yaseer's and kak ayu's baby, the first great grandchild in the family. and she is great. she's sooo cute, u cant help kissing her over and over again. i know i did. hehe

melencong banyak dah ni. haha. continue onnn, we went to uncle bullet's brother wedding in Klang. and we saw that huge mansion of Datuk Z who just passed away bcos of only Allah knows what. i dont know u heard abt the story or not cos i dont know how to tell it here cos i myself dont really gets the whole-truth. so, mind your own business mira. and oh, the wedding was okay la. all i can say, im only interested in their fried chicken cos it was gooood, haha

that Datuk Z's mansion, if u know what im talking about.

later after that, pak long called ayah and he asked us to come to his kastam's hi tea, at the Restoran Berputar KL Tower. of course we got so excited, who wouldnt? enjoying KL from the bird-eye view and EAT! i would never say no to that. haha. and we took a little pictures with the cousins. nurul, ewan, boy and harun were there, so we had fun. the conclusion is, all we did today is eating all the way from morning til evening. nice mira, nice.

ps: i bought all the stuff i need to bring back to uitm, and its so freaking banyak, and i knowww what ayah's going to say bout this. haih
