Finals soon

Salam & hi,

I am writing in my dorm room and I sort of wanted to write after not writing for so long ( so so soooooooooo very long ah). Last week was the last lectures for the semester and this week we only have labs session. One for Biochemistry and the other is Physiology. This week will be the last lab sessions. Next week we gonna have a Maulidur Rasul holiday and tutorials classes. What does it means? Finals are approaching!!!!!! In three weeks time!!!! Yep, the week after next week is the study week.

I'm so gonna ace this exam! I don't want to repeat the mistakes I did during asasi. Yeah, I'm still thinking about my asasi days from time to time (Should I make a post about this or nah heee).

Do make du'a for me people, love you xoxo

Ps: the photo above was taken during our interaction day. fun bunch for the next four years may we graduate together inshaAllah.

Being 19

Alhamdulillah for that I have been living in this world for 19 years already (oh another year to two decades). The transition from teenager to adulthood is still going on....  I wasn't looking forward to my 19th birthday at all, because I knew I was already 19 by hijr calendar. And the fact that my birthday this year fell on the 5th of Syawal, people are still in raya mood (of course, me too!). Birthdays were never cakes and parties for me, but the night before abah brought us the family to Restoran Sate Kajang Haji Samuri for family dinner. That's a little celebration right there, doa selamat + eat satayyyyy yay. You would never go wrong for choosing satay!

Being 19, there are some nights where I couldn't sleep. Thinking.... and keep on thinking. Running the brain on though I really need to sleep. Yep, being older means you have more worries and problems and merely thoughts that keep you awake.

Next month the result for university placement will be out. Only a few weeks left for holiday.... After that I will be studying for degree in the next four years wow

Malaysian Biology Olympiad 2016 2nd Workshop

It's such a late post huhuhu so delayed eh? Anyway, it turns out that I got chosen for the 2nd workshop for MBO. Out of 80 participants  (was it 80+ I'm not so sure) from the first workshop, I am the lucky one to go the the next round. Oh yeah! Alhamdulillah. Didn't really thought that I would have made it (aka not really anticipating). So this time around there are 38 students. The accomodation is still the same place, we stayed at PERMATApintar college dormitories. The workshop was conducted from 25 May to 28 May 2016.

For the second workshop we had 4 practical tests, which are conducted during/after 4 lab sessions. Each lab session lasted for three hours (except for one lab session, only two hours). We had lectures too, for Statistics and Biosystematics since these aren't covered in the first workshop. We are divided into two groups, each group will be having 19 students.

Ramadhan Kareem


It's the first day of ramadhan. Alhamdulillah for I still have the chance to meet this beautiful and blessed month. For this year, ramadhan is a bit different for me. For so many years, I have been fasting while at school (most of the time spent was at school) and last year was my first time fasting away from family. I was doing my foundation year at UKM. It was a whole new experience for me. I got to make my own sahur. Just a simple sahur would do. I made my drink and eat some biscuits or oat. I definitely missed my ummi's cookings during sahur. For berbuka, I mostly went for a free feast (thanks to those who sedekah food for us, university students). We would gather at the first floor of the college building and wait for the berbuka time. Some did tadarus al quran while waiting. The seniors would start giving away kurma and small mineral water before Maghrib time. And when it is time for berbuka, we would berbuka together with the kurma. Then after Maghrib prayer, we would lined up to get our food. Usually it's rice with chicken/fish lauk, vegetables, and of course fruits. It was more than enough. I managed to save money during the ramadhan month last year as I didn't really eat at the cafe for berbuka.

This year, I got to do sahur and berbuka with my family again. I don't know when will I get to berpuasa with my family again. Although I will further my studies nearby, the chance is when I go home on weekends only. After finishing degree, who knows what will happen. What if I married? Then this ramadhan is the last ramadhan of me with my whole family. And since I have nothing much to do at home, I hope that this ramadhan will be better than the last. May Allah bless my muslim sisters and brothers during this month and may you accomplished whatever goals you have set for this month. Let's change for the better shall we?

Bekerja selepas SPM

Salam & hi people!!

Post ni amatlah basi sebabnya patutnya dari tahun lepas lagi dah tulis pasal pengalaman kerja lepas es-pi-em ni. Maklumlah, umur sekarang pun dah 19. Masa kerja dulu umur 18, zaman baru habis SPM. Meh akak nak cerita dulu akak kerja cemana. Bolehlah adik-adik nanti fikir masak-masak dulu samada nak kerja atau tidak (eh takdelah bukan nak gertak pun nak kongsi pengalaman sahaja). Biasalah kan lepas habis SPM semuanya nak dibuat, ambik lesenlah, kerja lah. Maklumlah cuti panjang. Sekolah pun dah habis.
