Happy New Year 2015

woop! its the new year! 2015!

I’ve been missing in action again, but I’ll be back once everything’s settled.

So far, the new year has been alright for me, no drama yet, but I wont know how long that will last. Tomorrow/ later is back to college day, and though im dreading it, i do feel a slight push and urge to study for my finals already ( its in May/June but preparations must be made early!) its a good thing.

There have been quite a few changes in my life lately, and also there’s goals to be made for this new year, and more stuff to do, which I will blog about soon enough. I also have yet to wrap up 2014..

But yes, that’s a slight update for now, and I wish everyone all the best in everything and a good start to this brand new year!

What’s going on

Aside from that, i guess i should also update on what’s going on lately.

well, degree’s fine, meet some new friends, getting used to the classes and knowing which to pay attention and which to not haha. Some Rotaract activities going on lately, and im making an effort to try my best in contributing as much as i can. ( hopefully it all works out ) Also being alert of how i need to step up and actually make an effort to study already, because i really cant afford to slack for degree, i wanna do good.

Got my textbooks from UK that day, meaning no excuses for anything about not studying etc, and there was a hassle of having an error and stuff but im glad it’s resolved right now.

My work has been fine, getting used to it as well and maybe trying to enjoy it sometimes.

Learnt a new principle – IDGAF principle which works out well most of the time. credits to Sureene and Flocho for this amazing concept haha.

i recently got a second piercing and it’s been alittle bit.. nasty because of all the infections and pus coming out here and there, its stabilizing soon now 😀 I did it behind my mom’s back actually, but she noticed it the other day and didnt comment much about it. ( phewww because i thought she would flip out )

So yeah, fixed routine, classes classes, work work and week in week out time just goes by like that, just like water. And i guess it would be like that for the next 3 years for me.

Gotta save up for lots of things at the moment. Which is not a bad thing but there’s quite a number of commitments so.. gotta tie the belt around the waist tighter for all these commitments!

and yeah, that’s basically what i’ve been up to lately. At one point i didnt blogged anywhere at all, but im coming back again. my dayre

just a heads up, i plan to blog on some craft reviews and maybe even some crafts or recipes 😀 cant wait for that.

meanwhile im just trying to complete all my notes from classes so that i can actually sort things out well.

Moving on

Moving on, i finally get to fully concentrate on degree and everything else that makes me happy.

right now, i feel that i need to change some perspectives in my life. Though i really wish i could have a getaway all to myself or maybe with 1 or 2 buddies to soul search and look for the meaning in life or some sort like that, perhaps to even just calm my nerves and think about what i really want to achieve in life, its just impossible for me to do so at this moment.

Well, all i can do is make use of what has been given to me.

Its mid-week and next week onwards, most colleges will start again, including for yy and my sister, and i also realize that most of my friends have already started college these 2 weeks again as well. Everyone’s gonna be busy bees.

Just as i wanted to blog about how August is already here, August is already ending.Can you believe how fast time flies?

And in no time, i’ll be done with 1st year degree, and the 2nd and the 3rd then CLP, and its work work work. It can be said its a good thing that time passes fast because sometimes you just want it to be done and over with.The most important thing is as long as we cherish the moments and experiences in between, any journey regardless of length or period will be worth while.

Thanks to some friends, i’ve been learning alot about myself and what i really want to achieve in my life. Sometimes we can come up with rash decisions, which can be really burdensome to the people around you, and the desire for it is so tenacious, just because you dont want to be left behind among your peers. 

After a long consideration and lots of thinking, i realized, i dont actually want that, all i wanted was just to ”fit in” whereas im already perfectly doing so. And there are no boundaries to other options that may be much more suited to you WITHOUT the burden of the people around you, especially your parents.

Therefore, my advice is that you sit down or even before you sleep, just give yourself a pat on your back and think, Yes i can be whoever i choose to be, without needing to have what others do. Just go with the flow and never force things upon commence.

try your best in everything.

No harm wishing for it though, if you get it in the end. good for you, if you dont, dont beat yourself up for it, there WILL be other options.

Back to the update, well, last week has been a tiring week for me, time passes much faster when classes start, maybe its because of the journey to college and back. I dont know. But its does feel faster.

For now, Im motivated to do more things, concentrate on my studies, read more novels, draw, learn new words,my work, editing, Rotaract activties, Hence i might have nothing much to blog about since it may seem repetitive.

Yes i am thankful for everything i have now..

Sometimes i wish there’s an automatic system in my brain that checklists everything i have to do and have not yet done and also alerts me about deadlines.

Too bad, for now i have to use my trusty old notebook!

Good luck in degree and college to all my peers.

Busy Raya break

Missing in action for more than 2 weeks

But im back now 🙂

anyways it all started from the week before the Hari Raya holidays, i was busy scanning stuff for my mom whilst packing last minute for my trip to Singapore.

And after the trip it was just me having to teach for 4 days consecutively, back to back for one of my student’s replacements, which kinda tired me out a little.

Also, i met up with Ky and Qn again for lunch and snacks,it was a bit spontaneous, and oh i went to the book fair in KLCC as well, and then it was my Grandmother’s birthday celebration after that. 

Thus, how i spent my past 2 weeks.And Now, its back to normal classes in college and yeah secretarial work for my mom again.

Had so many fun adventures that i can share here 🙂

The world

Its upsetting, seeing all these unfortunate events happening around the world. I believe it affects almost everyone indirectly.

I just wish everything will be back to normal, and no more fighting, no more wars, no more religions hating each other, no more human error-ed disasters, no more pollution, no more corruption.

I still believe world peace is attainable and achievable, and i still believe in humanity. Why cant humans just set aside differences and just see each other as a person.?

Degree begins

Im officially starting my degree tomorrow and ughhhhh im sooo not excited.. besides the fact that i get to see my buds again, other than that, please just give me back my sleep 😦

Time passed by fast, i was JUST getting into the holiday mood and BOOM COLLEGE AGAIN.

I feel so sad right now.. Just 3 weeks plus after my Alevels and i gotta start on degree already. I dont like this..

Seriously regretting starting my course in July now instead of September, WE HAD AN OPTION. But my close friends decided on starting earlier at first, so i registered considerably early,if not one of the earliest ones to, and when they decide they might want to start in Sept, it was too late for me to change, so i kinda made them ”keep their word”

Poor Su and I were so reluctant to start early but due to other factors,( parents) we had to start early anyway.

Im not used to the schedule anymore, im not nervous just reluctant, because trainrides during rush hours are just crayyyy

Especially during the Ramadhan month,(which is now)so everyone would be rushing home at that time.

and the FOOD around my college aint that nice either, and some are not always available, its a daily dilemma.( at least to us )

Other than that, meh, i dont know if i should feel happy or sad about starting degree already.

Pros are :

1.at least a little motivation to do something instead of lazing around the house all day?
2.get to see my college friends again! :DD
3.more discipline in my life i suppose ( waking up early )
4.somewhat more ”occupied”
5.2

Cons are :

1.not really in the mood to make new friends…
2.waking up earlyy (i dont like it )
3.train rides during rush hours ( craayyyyy)
4.well.. textbooks?
5.enduring classes
6.lesser available days to go out with friends ( it slowly reduces further near exams)

I just had to make the cons more hehe. But perhaps i shouldnt feel so miserable, contrasting with the pros, also the fact that i get to have an education.

Will be able to adjust back soon, right now my bodyclock is quite messed up.

Anyways, at least i can look forward to other things, like rotaract club activities, seeing my friends, plus i still have a few outings to go! and also starting early means classes are more leisure!

at least i get some off days in between for now, unlike during alevels ughh..

so yeah, here’s to going back to college to start my degree, and other better things.

Basic Chocolate cake

I had my highschool buds over the other day and months of not seeing each other. After lunch and all that, they came to my place to bake!

We wanted something simple, easy and tasty, so we decided on making just a simple chocolate cake.

I couldnt really find a recipe that satisfies all the ingredients that i have at home, so i decided to wing it by modifying the recipe from a simple vanille butter pound cake.

Ingredients:

250g butter (2 sticks)
220g sugar
240g flour
4 eggs
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup of milk (sour cream ,yogurt or buttermilk will make it moist) – about 200ml-250ml
a pinch of salt

First, beat the butter and sugar into the mixer, add eggs one by one and also vanilla.
Then add all your dry ingredients in a bowl.
Mix in the dry ingredients into the butter mixture and alternate with milk.
Place in baking mould after its all combined.

Bake for 35 minutes at 170c or when you poke a toothpick in and it comes out clean.

this cake honestly tastes a little bit like twiggies, it doesnt take too long to make and it came out great 😀

we piped on some cream cheese icing and some chocolate ganache in the middle and it became this sinful monster>>>
