Alhamdulillah, alhamdulillah and alhamdulillah, berkat doa semua thesis dah berjaya di submit Jumaat 7.6.13 =) Preparing for my VIVA. Owh saya di tahun pertama, bukan final VIVA lagi. Alhamdulillah juga result kajian so far showing a very prominent outcome, which make me feel so much better and its all from Allah. Ingat hari tu susah nak dapatkan data dari local shopping mall- tapi rupanya Allah nak temukan dengan penemuan yang lebih baik, alhamdulillah.
So dalam hidup ni, bila kita percaya setiap benda yang kita dah usaha habis daya tapi tak dapat, itu tandanya benda tu bukanlah yang terbaik untuk kita. pasti ada yang lain yg lebih baik yang Allah sedang aturkan untuk kita. in shaa Allah. tugas kita hanya usaha, doa, percaya dan teruskan mencari. Bila kita bertindak dalam surahan Dia barulah hikmah itu akan kita rasa, in shaa Allah.
And yeah with many of my friends going home for their summer vacation (budak2 undergraduate) yang dah layaknya jadi adik, we went for a British thingy yesterday. What else but sun bathing and picnic, plus dah weeks i quarantined myself, so need a fresh air lah !
Its a new place we discovered. Wowwie ! hehe. A very lovely one. Macam small scale hutan simpan ? Some what lah. With 17C weather...its considered as panas. Yeah. Exactly panas. No need to wear jacket anymore. Packed our nasi lemak, trifle, chips and drink.
To reach the exact picnic location which is down in the small jungle (?) we need to take a walk through the alley. And it was sooo beautiful ! Penuh dengan flowers. What make me even shock is I could see a lot of Queen Anne Lace here ! Look :
Ingat tak apa Fido cakap pada Hana dulu ?
Petikan dari Bab 14 : 13 Jam A380
“Maksud you …. I ni symbol peace ?” soal aku ragu-ragu.
“Peace after all the struggles … and a shelter for those who had been lost for so long. You are like a sanctuary but being shielded by a poppy’s personality. Only someone with a good heart will do what you are doing, Hana. Queen Anne’s Lace is a symbolic of sanctuary, I bet you know that.”
Alhamdulillah, really enjoyed our picnic yesterday. Kadang dekat dengan alam buat kita kembali kepada fitrah yang suka mencari ketenangan. Hati dan jiwa terasa lebih tenang... One thing yang Eve suka dengan orang English is, dorang is not as materialistic as us. They are nature's lover....and...they appreciates their life and time.
We spend so much time to work, and mengejar keduniaan...but as for them, life is life. Pergi kerja habis kerja balik rumah. Went to PUB (public house) for a drink and catching up with friends on Friday night. Weekend is absolutely waktu untuk family. Jalan2 dgn anak isteri (if they have any).
Right before reaching the waterfall (fake waterfall) jumpa this flowers. Pengsan ! Haha Eve suka bunga. So. You should know how excited I could be. lol
Tu, daun gerigi sebelah kanan tu sangatlahhhh gatal. Euu. Terkena sbb excited tengok bunga and amek pic. Sangatlah gatal tangan sampai malam. ergh.
Jalan turun alley, samapi water fall sides :) Feuh, sungguh meriah. Ma shaa Allah. Ya lah, kalau dalam setahun jarang2 dapat matahari, kalau sekali matahari keluar semua akan keluar untuk duduk bawah cahaya matahari tu. Eve sendiri pun suka berjemur. Nikmat org kata.haha
Belah ni sangat clandestine kan ;) Tengok sebelah satu lagi pula.hehe
Dorang buat family day lah kot ni. I have no idea. but the kids areee cuuteee !!!
Taking our spot. Silang kaki, terus hadap makanan. Haha. I was facing the sun since my other two friends takut burn but I dont really mind getting burn a bit. Rasa panas matahari bila dalam keadaan agak dingin macam ni...its so heavenly good guys ! ;)
And yeah since I couldnt see people behind me, I just listened to my friends' comments about those peeps. Look at those yang tengah baring right next to my shoulder. 4 British guys yang sangat lucu !
U might not be able to see them clearly (good for you, haha) sbb badan dorang putih so bila kena cahaya matahari and diambil gambar, u wont see anything pun from the picture. Anyway those guys. Dorang berempat - semua lelaki. Yang kelakar is, dorang macam berpakat, awal2 baring meniarap sama-sama sambil tongkat dagu perhatikan orang. Then sama2 baring pandang langit dengan kaki silang satu. I was like : What the hell ? Boyband apa ?
Enjoying life. Is part of the thing which they can do best. and yet I kinda like the idea. I mean no one like to be judged. And no one have the right to judge others ! Nobody care if you wear cheap clothing or you dont own a car here. People dont look at your appearance. We appreciates beauty differently. and we appreciates human right highly.
Being here, I am very happy too. I used to do my undergraduate di Sheffield. Masa umur 20 sampai 24. Balik kerja dengan parent setahun, then gatal nak kerja as PTD so I quit helping with my family business. Then tertekan sebab as for me, my salary is not enough at that time. I mean, alhamdulillah rezeki Allah bagi sangat cukup, but utk saya, saya fikir saya boleh pergi lebih jauh dan dapat lebih baik dengan apa yang saya ada (You should analyze your potential and weakness every month). So before I reach 30, I decided to do my PhD, and it seems like its the best choice for me. Kenapa ? Sebab Allah izinkan ianya utk berlaku when I was 26. I have no intention in becoming a lecturer as my aim is to have my own consultant company. Doakan :)
And yes, in between 2 years di Malaysia. I can feel the pressure. Kos hidup. Dengan paying for my own house (tinggal sorang in my apartment) , for transportation. Harga rumah di Malaysia is ridiculous. So does harga kereta. Public transport was not any better. What choice do you have ? Once you step out of undergraduate title, u r set to have a lot of hutang.
Hutang kawin. Hutang rumah. Hutang kereta.
I was thaught by my ayah to ukur baju di badan sendiri and was advised not to make any loan. So the best thing is - why dont you buy a second hand car which you can pay cash ? Instead of buat loan and thight for 9 years ? Its all your choice. - but I basically borrowed kereta ayah :p
Baring-baring di lantai bumi was so peaceful and was so nice. Kalau di Malaysia ramailah yang akan sibuk tanya soal JODOH saya. Benda yang paling saya malas nak layan. Seriously. When my aunts asked, my mom would be the first person to answer it. She would proudly said :
Dia tak nak lagi. Banyak lagi yang dia nak dalam hidup selain kahwin.
Owh yeah, I love my mom. She understands me so much ! Like a best friend does ? No. More than that.
As a novelist mungkin people would think i am a hopeless romantic ? or anything close to that. but seriously, saya menulis sebab saya takut dengan fenomena novel di Malaysia sebelum ini. Banyak perempuan heroine di bayangkan sebagai tidak berpelajaran. Jadi PA, jadi secretary, jadi amah, macam satu kunci utk kahwin dengan orang kaya. Pada saya, kenapa nak harapkan harta orang kalau kita sendiri boleh jadi kaya ?Being a PA/Secretary/Amah - seriously ? Your choice, again, but why be that when you can aim for better ? and why aim to marry a rich man so that you will become rich ? Be rich yourself !
Since this had become some what an issue/ offensive for some people I will add my explanation here about what do I actually mean. Its a screen shot from the comment below.
( I touched about NOVEL PHENOMENON NOT HUMAN REAL LIFE AND REAL WORK or BE BELITTLING any jobs! And my concern and advise is to the teenagers/youngsters whom not yet have any job/career. It is not aimed for anyone who already have a stable career, family etc. If you already have a stable job I cant really say ITS YOUR CHOICE, cause you are not facing any choice anymore (is it (?)) - you already MADE the DECISION. I am fully aware that every of us have our own story. If the story plot (now I'm talking about NOVEL AGAIN, not anyone's REAL LIFE) is showing a woman/heroine with strong heart (no mater what kind of job she's having) its consider good to me, the thing which I'm against is when the heroine were weak. But after all its my personal preference. Many people loves telenovela which is is not my cup of tea, so basically we are open to MANY different opinion and taste. As much as you said I cant push you to love what I love and think the way I think (which I dont even push you to accept whatever I said) thats how much I might not be influenced or tolerate or bothered to change my opinion in storyline or principals). So PEACE yo.
Enough with my mumbo jumbo. but if you're a teenagers reading this, trust me, do well with your life. Dont aim for anything less. Never. Trust God. Allah have the POWER to grant all your wishes !
And to those whose being pressure about marriage. Stand up for yourself and have a principal. You know what you want better than others. Dont get married just to please others. That's sick.
Alhamdulillah, my heart do find peace here. Seriously do. Took a walk in the small forest before going home.
Cantik kan bunga-bunga yang tumbuh atas tebing ni ? Banyak lagi pictures but ada pic Eve.hehe. Hence. Tayang yang mana tak ada saya di dalamnya :p
Before going home. Looking at all the houses here. I feel like bringing my parent to live with me....Saya menumpang mereka sedari kecil sampai lah ke usia sekarang, pelik kan bila dah besar macam ni susah betul nak jaga mak ayah. Nak bawa dan sara mereka. Ironic life. Doakan impian yang satu tu tercapai ya :)
And finally tengoklah one pack adik ni :p hehe. He greeted us right before we ride the car to go home.
Bye guys and till we meet again dalam Abang Pilot Part 2. Esok lusa kot :)Nak keluar minum tea at Tea Shop. Perasan so English lately.Hehe. Have a nice weekdays ahead and dont forget to appreciates your life. Dont let your work enslave you ! <3
