SYDNEY

It has been a while since i last posted. I went to Sydney a couple of days ago it was really a last minute decision.. thanks for my mates who let me join them even though i initially had turned down the invite... It was really a trip to remember... too many to write on, or i rather list em down...
1. I sit on the wrong seat in the train but realized it before the passenger come in..
2. The backpackers' hostel which we stayed in is called 'asylum'
3. We met a Fiji uncle who was really speculative about..well, everything that he talked about that day...
4. Sydney Opera house is cool.
5. I had a fight with a ticket seller at a ferry ticket counter after he assaulted me with his word. I was surprised with myself... never thought that i could be really outspoken and have so much guts to burst out like that in front of an Australian.. i suppose i was really hungry too..I guess, the saying is true.. a hungry man is an angry man.. we were having a problem finding a halal food. it worth to narrate the story i suppose... My friend and I bought ferry tickets from a ticket machine.. but it turned out that the machine did not give out enough change.. so by any chance, we still gotta line up for the counter... my friend who was short 18 AUD went first and thing went well when the ticket guy returned the change for her... then came my turn.. the conversation was something like below;
me: hi, same thing happen to both of us.. (referring to my other friend who is short 8 AUD and me who short 4 AUD)
tix guy: what the f*%# with u guys!!!
my friend: it's not our fault
me: it's not our fault (said in an amplified version since the tix guy seems so deaf)
tix guy: u..**%$&*%* f*&&%$#$%& f&6%$##%^ ( seriously, neither of me or my friends really catch his words..all i could hear is a series of 'f' words repetitively spoken)
me: FINE!!! I don't care!!! (with a hand waving up to the sky and frowning brows.. i walked a way from the queue..i think, i said it pretty loud too)
It was quite a long queue behind me and i had sorta drawn an attention.. owh.. God! It wasn't really my inttention to burst out my anger and i seriously wasn't really angry.. (we really had a good laugh after that) but that was like the worst service i ever received since i'm in Australia... It is totally unacceptable to be cursed when i was just claiming for my right... I felt really guilty though, it's okay for me not to get my 4AUD back.. but my friend, she also lost her 8AUD... but we were lucky.. An asian guy, i suppose a technician then came up to fix the machine... there were more other people who had the same probs like us... we went to him and got our change.. anyway, i felt so satisfy that i could complained about the tix guy to that kind technician uncle.. huhu...
6. We visited a chinese garden.. the beauty is breathtaking... I'll never forget it for the rest of my life...
7. We ate at an Uhgyur Restaurant for the first time and find out that these Ughyur people do look a lil bit like malays...
8. Owh.. a korean aunt came up and spoke korean to me... OOoooH!
9. Bondi beach is not as large as it is seen on the tv.. But, it is indeed.. beautiful!
10. Crows can sometimes be so funny...
They say, a picture is worth a thousand words.. i place a photo here...so that it could describe the rest of my feelings...



To my dear friends.. komapta for the good times... and... Melbourne is still the best! heee...

FiRE


First and foremost, I would like to pass on my condolences to Australian bushfire victims and their families and my deepest sympathies to those affected by this tragedy. My thoughts are always with them. I'm not Australian but for being apart of its community, I do feel sorrow on what is happening. The death toll is still increasing and as I read on yahoo7 this morning 23 fires are still burning across the state.
For families and friends who wonder about my being here, Alhamdulillah.. my friends and I so far, are saved in our house. The fire is widespreding in country area but we are living in the city. It is quite distant from the place where the fire strikes. Keep on praying that it will not be blown by the wind to this area..Ameen

15 UPDATES

1. I'm sick with Malaysian politics... Eyes shut, ears covered, mouth sealed - whatever is happening in Perak, let it be... I've been constraining myself from talking about that issue from it earlier time especially in this blog and to my housemates and succeeded... but well, i did peep through a little bit though.. huh.. (can't help it) Anyway.. It feels better to joke about our daily life rather than talking about others politicians bullsharks over meals...hhuu...
2.I feel ill. Since morning. I thought a really good lunch would ease.. but it did no avail.. Health is so unpredictable... I've been regularly consuming vitamins and supplements but still... Illness strikes anytimes it wants...I even took a nap..but here in my body it stays... May Allah erase my sins through this...
3. It was raining this morning. MashaAllah. Allah knows how much I love rains... It was really hot yesterday, up to 43 degree.. but today, it is as cold as..err.. Melbourne... Beautiful.
4. Autumn is on it way. Another love affair of mine!. Love Autumn...
5. I've been browsing for a good working chair but somehow wonder if a good and expensive working chair would really help to ease my back pain. I'm afraid that I might get pelvic distortion.. hahaa.. I'll become shorter then.. nooo.. I'm already too short to get shorter... But, sitting in front of computer for hours really hurts my back... been trying to sit straight, in a right posture... but feels like a broken mannequin.. uhuuu...
6. I miss mak.. Want to call her but my credit already approaches it limits.. Can't wait for 10th, new account will start... yeay!
7. I was heart broken, a couple of times.. Thanks to my sweetheart, Autocad. He should have reminded me to press Ctrl+S before saying 'Fatal error' in front of my face... Owh dear, why are u so rude to me? What wrong have I done to u.. I know, I should try to get to know u better... But I am struggling to know u.. but i gotta be frank to u, I love photoshop more.. heee...
8. I didn't drink coffee today..(ran out of milk).. but i just bougth 2 giant bottles of green tea.. . heehee..lalaalaaa~
9. Last night, I had a nightmare.. I dreamt of me as a banshee. I woke up at subuh and wonder if i did really become a banshee at night and killed people.. u know, like The Mask.. Hahaa.. I can be too imagitive and dumb sometimes.. Allah.. it was really eerie...Its still vivid.. I took a white cloth, cloaked it around my body and made a 360 degree twist, then i turned into a banshee... There was a banshee sifu who came and taught me some bansheeing skills in that dream... hahaa... Maybe I didn't recite my prayer properly last night... hermm..
10. My brother bought a life insurance and named it after me as his inheritor, but I told him.. " I might go before you..."
11. I need to whack out some good detail drawings, but my brain is so deep in twilight zone today.. Allah, help me...
12. Home furnitures have been rearranged. It looks more like an office now.. but I really enjoy this new atmosphere...
13. I need to work harder, smarter and quicker.. so that i could finish my drawings as much as possible for thursday class.. looking forward to next Wednesday, there will be a film screening at RMiT titled 'This Land Speaks Arabic"....A film about palestinians...
14. My housmates and I have started an online craft business, but yet hasn't been running well. just need to get the production line moving...We are too busy.. hohoX...Will see how it goes in a long run.. hehee...
15. Owh ya... Thanks to oya's mum and oya herself.. Her mum posted some really marvellous cookies for her birthday and oya is so generous for offering me some.. yeaaayy! They really satisfy my sweet tooth...

3+1

3 NEW DRINKING HABITS
1. I can't quit morning coffee unless there is no milk at home, I guess I picked up this addiction when I started drinking ayah's coffe radix before going to work...
2. I love green tea. Cold green tea... Once mistakenly ordered at a japanese restaurant by saying 'green ice tea' when it should be 'iced green tea'... such a shame!
3. Nutrien Water. I don't bother with all the nutritional advantages it has.. it just tastes good..That is what really matter.. :)
I know, i should be drinking more plain water...

1 THG I'D JUST REALISED
My phone serves only 2 purpose;
1- As alarm clock
2-Calling home
Herm.. every month my international credit limit will exceed while sms+local credit limit sometimes, remains untouched... If only they provide a cap with an international limit higher than local.. I would be happy to get that cap. Maybe i should communicate to housmates through sms... hee..

Aduhai Cinta

Bila cinta bersuara
Kesukma ditanya
Kemana harus dibawa

Hati yang berbunga

Kuncup kembangnya menjadi rahsia

Aduhai cinta...
Bukan manusia menentukan letaknya

Bukan pandangan menentukan gerangan

Bukan keramat menentukan saat

Bukan sukma menentukan tema

Aduhai cinta...
Bila ke tuhan disandarkan cerita

Bila ke tuhan direbahkan rahsia

Hujungnya tiada kecewa

Bertemu jua kumbang dan bunga
Menjalin cinta di lembayung Yang Esa
Aduhai cinta...
Kasih bukan sekadar nama

Cinta bukan sekadar suara

Hanya yang mengerti bisa dimengertikan
.

Namun moga beliau tidak kisah menerima rangkai ucap kata dari saya... Moga beroleh bahagia hendaknya... Sekian, terima kasih...
