Raya.

16.7.15

Ibu yang mengandungkan Walid, nenek kami, kami panggil Che'.

Telah pergi bertemu Pencipta sewaktu aku darjah tiga. 2009.

Dah lama.

Tapi, insan yang seorang ini sungguh special di hati Walid. Sebab Walid jarang senyum dalam gambar, kecuali gambar yang ada Che' sekali.

So, petang tadi Amuh ikut Walid pergi ziarah kubur Allahyarhamah Che'.

Dan Amuh berbunyi di group WhatsApp.

"Esok lepas solat raya, kita terus ke rumah Ayahlong. Kemudian, balik ke Kg. Raja. Pukul 10.00 pagi sampai Kg Raja dan pukul 11.30 pagi pulang ke Taman Haji Da dan solat Jumaat di Pengadang Baru. Sekian laporan dari pusara Che'." -Amuh

Abang antara yang respon... "Kirim salam kat Che'."

"Che' tengah tidur."

*****

Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri semua. Maaf zahir dan batin. Kalau ada tersalah kata, terguris hati dan sengaja buat salah, aku harap dapatlah korang cari secubit rasa ikhlas dalam hati tu untuk maafkan aku.

Dan untuk Che' dan Bapak (arwah atuk belah Ummi) juga Atuk Omar, ayah Walid, (yang aku dan semua adik-beradik tak pernah jumpa), semoga tenang di sana.

Al-Fatihah.

P/s: Sepatutnya Hari Raya Fitrah disambut dengan kegembiraan, tapi harini macam sayu pulak. Tambah tambah bila Amuh jawab Che' tengah tidur tadi. Sobs. :'(

Love At First Sight

6.7.15

Assalamualaikum.

God, I didn't even have a clue I'd be doing this thing right now. This is me getting bored and having nothing to blog about. (I actually have to blog about MSKP but I'm not in the mood since I forgot everything's that happened before Japan, time seems to move too fast)

Grant gustin
But I'm faster, remember?

I used to do this all the time before. OK (*3*)

1. If you could change something about your home, without worrying about the expense or the mess, what would you do?
Uh, enlarging my room? And adding another five bookshelves? Duh?
Okay seriously I'd do that. Also, I want a swimming pool and a garden where I could spend time reading there.

2. What was the last thing you bought?
Angah's birthday present.

3. Would you go bungee jumping or sky diving?
How about both? I can do with some extreme activities for now, since I feel like I have all the time in the world (this is an understatement). Or maybe some of these roller coaster rides would do.

  

4. Do you have a garden?
Please refer question 1. Obviously no.

5. What is the first thing that you think of when you wake up in the morning?
During Ramadhan, I'd think about how happy I am to wake up for sahur, because I'm going to greet the food and eat them. During other times, I'd think about what I'm going to have for breakfast. And I myself wonder why I'm fat. K.

6. If you could eat lunch with one famous person, who would it be?
GRANT GUSTIN OBVIOUSLY

7. Who sent the last text message you received?
*shrugs* Probably Celcom, or some kind of spam number. It's always <<Content not supported>> I can't even understand why they decide to continuously spam me. And... what type of question is this?! Nobody uses SMS anymore. We have WhatsApp. *flips tudung Zarazuri*

8. Which store would you choose to max out your credit card?
Is this even a legal question? OBVIOUSLY MPH BOOKSTORES AND BORDERS. If there are other bookstores I'm happy with, I'd undoubtedly spend every pound of money I have. But since I'm broke (my parents are not, but I decided not to waste their money), so this is just going to stay in my dream list.

9. What time is bed time?
Anywhere around 2am. I have insomnia. Please someone get me a cure. :'(

10. What did you do for your last birthday?
Studying? I was in the middle of my study week? Huhu. Just went for a dinner with my family and Wahidah. Kakngah bought me different flavours of cakes from Secret Recipe, and Wahidah and I ate them like a boss.

11. Who was the last person you ate dinner with?
Since it's Ramadhan, of course the answer's gonna be: With my family. (Or what? You expecting a different answer? I'm not a fun person to have dinner with :{)

12. Is the glass half empty or half full?
Half you fool. But, seriously, who cares? *groans* If I want it to be full, I'll add more liquid to it. If I think half is enough, then I'd just freaking drink it.

13. What's the farthest-away place you've ever been?
*checks the map* Turkey. A very nice country, with nice weather and cute kitties.


14. Have you ever won a trophy?
Once. I won the SAHIBBA competition in 2012. *sighs* *you did SAHIBBA but you didn't do Scrabble why*

15. Have you ever had to wear a uniform to school?
Every single freaking day, since 2003 until 2013. Though the colour varied from time to time. For instance, in 2003 and 2004 I wore white, 2005 until 2008 it was blue. And then it went white again from 2009 to 2011, but changed to pink during 2012 until 2013. Wow, that's a lot of years.

16. Do you believe in love at first sight?
Depends. I don't know. If you're ugly (or not good-looking), perhaps no. See, people have always made up craps like "Looks don't matter" and "People don't fall for looks first" when in fact LOOKS MATTER and PEOPLE DO FALL FOR LOOKS FIRST. No one falls for personality at the first sight, please be real.


17. Think fast, who do you like right now?
Grant Gustin? Hahahahahahahah

18. What time do you get up?
During Ramadhan, at 4.45am or somewhere near 5am. If it's not Ramadhan, around 6am :')

19. Is there anything going on this weekend?
Nah... Just me chillin' at home. (But next weekend is Raya, so yeah)

20. How are you feeling right now?
A little bit groggy because I slept at two last night. But here's the thing: it's good that I feel like this, sometimes I feel like ripping the whole world apart but since I'm a nice girl, I choose to remain quiet in my room and read books.

Okay good day, people :)

Day 6: Ueno, Ginza and Akihabara

5.7.15

Assalamualaikum.

Day 6 consists of nothing else than more shopping and eating. In the morning we headed straight for Ueno for more souvenirs. I didn't get anything since I'd bought my fair amount of souvenirs at Asakusa. So, my trip to Ueno only involved wandering around the place with Iman, Haidah and Ain Mamarazzi. Okay, I did stop for buah potong which was tawar ahaks :')

After Ueno, we went to Masjid Ueno, which was so comfortable and nice. We could spend all day there hahahahahaahaha we solat jama' and berjemaah Zohor and Asar. We lepak lepak for a while before marching for a Malaysian restaurant owned by Malaysian Chinese in Ginza. It is quite famous. Sensei said if any of the orang kenamaan Malaysia came to Japan, they'd order food from this restaurant.

And the best thing is, the owner sponsored our meal! They served sambal sotong, kangkung masak belacan (the best vegie dish I've ever tasted, keep in mind that I don't eat that much veges), telur dadar and Miso soup (not exactly Miso soup, but with a bit of Malaysian taste, hmm somewhere there ahaks)

This is us taking a picture in front of the restaurant

After getting ourselves full, we went to Akihabara. I thought it was another place to buy souvenirs (like Asakusa and Ueno), but I was greeted by a 9-floor building. I guess it was 9 la, I almost forgot the small details, lulz. Floor 1 was all phones and stuffs. Floor 2 was idontremember. Floor 3 got cameras and computers and headphones. I got a pair of headphones ehehe :3

I wandered around with Ain Mamarazzi for some time, then she needed to go to the toilet. So I walked alone since there. I went up and down, rounded each of the floor. I got to see some 3D printer which was like, super cool.

And then I saw a few types of portable printers. Very classy and I have wanted to have one since PASUM. But I didn't buy the printer because erm, I thought it'd be susah to bawak balik to Malaysia, but then... IT WAS FREAKING PORTABLE AND SMALL K! -_- When I told my parents and Angah about the printer, they were like, "Apasal tak beli?" HUHUHUHUHUHUHUHUHU Sensei let's go back to Japan please

So, uh, after Akihabara, we went back to our hotel to hail some taxis, to the bus station for Haneda Airport. We bid farewell to Toyoko Inn, huhuhu kinda sad leaving Tokyo so soon.

Waiting for the bus

At the bus station, there was this pakcik gatal (Japanese) who stopped by us to have a conversation. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH we had a picture with him but I couldn't find it in my gallore.

Byebye Monzen-Nakacho :'(

So, as soon as we boarded the bus, I fell asleep. Huhuhu it was a tiring day and I didn't want to leave Japan so soon. About an hour later we reached Haneda, and together we went inside. We performed our solat first before checking our bags in. A friendly reminder that the check-in process in Japan is not as smooth as in Malaysia. Lama gila baqhang beratoq. It felt similar to the queue at USJ and Disneyland. Lulz.

After that, we went about the airport, searching for food. There was a halal restaurant but it was getting late and they couldn't serve food in time for us, so we got ourselves some onigiri at Lawson (thanks Lawson, for providing us food throughout the whole trip hahaha).

Once we got into the departure gate, it was time to say byebye to Japan.


During our flight take-off, I could see a few of the staff working on ground, bowing us passengers goodbye. HUWAAAAAAAAAAA I am so gonna miss Japan and its friendly people.

So there, goodbye Japan. *tears forming*

We reached KLIA2 at 6 in the morning, and bid farewell to each other (especially the ones who were staying in KL and Selangor and Putrajaya). My girls. :(

We had a big mighty breakfast and it was Sensei's treat u.u Arigatou gozaimasu, Sensei!

I had to wait for my flight at 4pm, so yeah, I was left alone after Ain Sha and Chew's flight at 1pm. Byebye, everyone. Take care.

--------------------------------------------------

It was indeed a wonderful experience for me. I had been to Japan once, but what did I know back then? And I had never been on any vacation with my friends, so it was kinda fun traveling with friends. Although at first I didn't even know most of them, but we grew up on each other rather fast. I'm glad I met these girls and of course after this life wouldn't be the same without them. I am going to miss everyone :')

These kinds of experiences are hard to find, and I am grateful that I chose to join this trip.

Actually, the real story is... My family was supposed to go to Spain this year, Walid, Ummi, Angah, Amuh and I. After I finished PASUM. But then, Angah and Amuh are to get married, so Walid cancelled the trip, saving money for their weddings.

SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, since I'm not in the "to-get-married-this-year" list, I requested to join the Japan trip.

Me before the trip: Everyone else wants to get married, go on, but me, I'm going for a vacay :p

That's all for now. BYE! :3

Day 5: Asakusa, Tokyo Cruise, Odaiba and Masjid Tokyo

4.7.15

Hiiiii assalamualaikum! My mood for blogging went down for a few days hehehe. I didn't even switch on my laptop. So, today is about Day 5 in Japan!

We kicked off from our hotel early in the morning after breakfast. Of course, it was the routine destination, which was the Monzen-Nakacho station. The plan was to head for Asakusa, to buy souvenirssssssssssss!



And so, we arrived there and everyone went about their own way. I walked around with Su at first, and I found a shop that sold 6 magnets for 1200Y... I guess, I can't recall. Hahahahahhaa. So I bought 12 magnets. Lolz. Do set in mind that if you are to go traveling, NEVER compare their currency with ours. If you do so, you won't be buying anything because everything's gonna feel like, "Weh mahalnya." Pffft

Here, in Japan, 100Y is like, RM1 in Malaysia. Although the current exchange rate is 100Y is about RM3.08. Getting a canned carbonated for 100Y is considered as normal.

Okay, back to Asakusa shopping.

I was giving some cash to the shopkeeper when Su called me and showed me a stuffed bunny. Funny thing was, that bunny could imitate us. Kinda like Tom the cat application in your Androids. I tried some naughty words HAHAHAHAHAHAHHAAHHAH but I'd like them to be my secret and Su's. Hahahahaahah

Tak tahu lah ni benda apa, ambik jelah gambar en, mana tahu retis

After that we walked again and I stopped for key chains. When I got out of the shop, Su was nowhere to be seen, and Asakusa is a crowded place. I couldn't find her, so I moved along to the next shops alone, and found Ain Mamarazzi, Anis and Diyana. Moments later, Su found me and was complaining that I left her alone hahahahahahahahahahah sorry Su xD

Maksud dia kalau kau tengah makan benda benda manis sampai meleleh kat jari jangan ngengada nak sentuh barang kat kedai dia nanti bersemut

Then, it was only shopping shopping shopping. I bought a couple of T-shirts and a bunch of key chains. In the end everyone got split up again and I was left with Ain Mamarazzi, so she had to put up with me (since I asked her to take pics of me every second hahahhaaha)

I wanted to eat the ice-cream but I didn't know whether it could be eaten or not, so I didn't get any.......only to discover that it could be eaten afterwards after asking Sensei and Kak Zarith (a third-year senior studying in Japan). Huhuhu


*insecure sebab Kak Zarith tinggi sangat*

We gathered again around 12 noon, and headed for the erm, Tokyo Cruise place? Hahahahahah, we took some pictures before boarding the ship sailing around Tokyo, heading to Tokyo Bay.



Tokyo Bay consists of several islands and most of them are artificial ones, meaning that sometime before this, all of the land was covered with water.

Okay, so, upon reaching Tokyo Bay, we could see some people hanging around the bay, like, enjoying themselves under the sun. We didn't get to do that, by the way. So we walked around Odaiba, and got to the train station (again). There, we stopped at a 24-hour mart to get some onigiri.

There was this salmon onigiri that most of us had bought and were about to eat (uh, in my case, I had already eaten one whole of it, and I had a spare one), then Bro Faris (Twin B) came and asked, "Siapa beli onigiri salmon tadi? Jangan makan lagi!" Yeah right -_______- It turned out there was some kind pati ayam in there and um, cannot eat la. But I had eaten one.......okay it's okay I didn't know huhuhu

After the whole onigiri issue, we proceeded to board the train, heading for Yoyogi. Wherever that is. Hahahahahhah. We went to Masjid Tokyo, and Kak Zarith said that it is the biggest mosque in Japan. I was like, wow. The masjid is like, so small compared to our big masjids in Malaysia. Huhuhu. But it's a beautiful masjid.


There was this imam, I guess, he's Japanese and so shy that he saw us, had this awkward face, and said, "Welcome to Japan!" in a very sheepish way and then ran inside the masjid. Dah macam anak dara dah aku tengok. Wakakakakakaka

We solat jama' Zohor and Asar there, before heading to another part of Tokyo to eat. A Pakistani restaurant with the name 2 x 2 = 8 hmm I don't know how they did their Maths, but whatever I was hungry. For the first time in Japan, we got to eat ayam goreng. Nyum nyum. Everyone filled their plates full. So hungry, we were.

Lapaq kebuloq ayam

After eating, we bid farewell to Kak Zarith since she had to go back to her place :') Then, we walked to the train station again to head back to Monzen-Nakacho. During our walk, everyone got so hyper that we laughed and joked like we owned the place (actually it was only Faz who was laughing like mad but whatever hahahahaha)

Sensei told us to get some rest before night came, where he wanted to hold a small ceremony to give out our certificates (from Wakayama University). So at 9pm, we went downstairs and at about 10.30pm the ceremony was done and we headed back to our rooms. I phoned other rooms (since I suddenly became the ketua so I had their rooms numbers), saying that we were going to PARTAYYYYYYYYY that night since it was our last night HAHAHAHAHAHAH

So at 11.15pm everyone gathered in my room.......imagine 19 people in a single small room. Hotel rooms in Tokyo are not very spacious, in fact, a room for two isn't like what you have in Malaysia. Maybe half the space of the rooms in Malaysia. Lol. And we got "tauhu sumbat"ed in my room. Most of them sat on the floor, eating Maggi and stuff, a few of us on the bed.

The room was so seriously packed that we felt like we were immigrants from Bangladesh huahuahuahua

We joked around and laughed like crazy (we were having a party, remember? hahahahahah) so we didn't know when or how it'd end. Iman wasn't with us, so Haidah called her room number and asked Iman to come. So Iman came with a lil surprise! She was at the door and calling for Haidah, but everyone heard.

Iman: I think I might have done something stupid.
Haidah: Kau tinggal kunci dalam bilik eh?
Iman: A'ah..............

And from there everything went berserk. Ain Sha and Shamira, who were sitting on the bed, just realised that they had done the same thing, having left the room key in their room. So, Ain Sha, like a ninja, hopped away from her spot, stepped on the mattress that made it unbalanced, and with a remaining maggi nearby, the Maggi spilled on Chew and my BED!!!!!!!!!!! And everyone was like, "Noooooo!" and I was screaming, "Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!! My bed!!!!!!!" K

The party ended right away hahahahahhahahahahah, but a few of them stayed to gossip and joke some more. We pulled out the cadar and all and left it beside the bed. Huhuhuhuhu.

Later on, everyone got back to their rooms and went to sleeeeeeeeeep. What a night! Hahahahahahah

US.

Bye! After this, Day 6, and MSKP! (EH?)
