Once Upon An Eid

Hi. Selamat Hari Raya.

It’s been one week since Eid (glad it’s technically over) but I still want to say maaf zahir batin to you and to anyone who happens to read this abandoned blog by chance.

I’m already in Johor Bahru and at work.

But I was in my hometown in Terengganu for Eid. Where else could I be?

Same old place, same old routine. I was still holed up in my room the whole time we had guests coming over. My two brothers were in existence but customarily to no purpose. And my mom was still THE mom.

The only difference is that my sister’s now married so she was absent on the eve of Eid which was a little odd since the 5 of us were never separated during this time of the year.  We came in a bundle but the bundle is now detached but to advantage.

It’s okay.


I blurred my sister’s face because I was trying this new image blurring app on my phone and accidentally deleted the original photo.



Sister, myself and mom. That’s, by the way, my go to photo face. Embrace it.


Not sure if I’m allowed to post this on the Internet but here it is. IMG_7217.JPG

Ayoh Teh and us, minus my other brother.


Also take note, this is my ultimate favorite cookie.


Guilty. Finished half the jar all by myself in one sitting.

What’s yours?


Balik Raya With Me: July 1

So I just uploaded a 58 second video of the journey I took home on YouTube.

The video doesn’t have the most beautiful scenery but it’s memorable to me personally because I recorded it, haha.

No I mean because I was driving alone (which is rare) and the trip took me about 8 hours before I eventually reached home at about 4 p.m. ish. I think that was probably the longest solo drive I have ever done.

Furthermore, it wasn’t just any trip but the balik-kampung-oi-nak-raya-oi trip, so it’s very special.


March 2016.

Still waiting for the goddamn graduation invitation letter. I was mad because the list of graduates was out in the university website but I couldn’t verify my name. But then I realized that I had not pay the tuition fee for the final semester yet hence, no graduation! It was not my fault at all because I was sponsored by MyBrain, a scholarship program for postgraduate. They were supposed to pay my fee but they did not. In fact, still up until today, they do not. I had to pay with my own money! But they promised (after 3 millions of phone calls by me) that they would pay me back in three weeks if I send in the documentations one more time.

Yes, I sent in the agreement, the contract and everything they told me to. Again, it wasn’t my fault at all. They emailed me the wrong documentations in the first place and thus the contract was invalid. So they emailed me the right ones (hopefully) and I already sent it back via snail mail, pfft! It was complicated and I was tired.

But I want my money back!

If anyone ever experienced the same problem with MyBrain, do let me know how it was like dealing with it. Leave a comment or something, I would love to know how long do I have to wait until I get my money back.

So, enough with that.

Just when I thought I’ve had enough with school and actually swore to never going back, I registered for a foreign language class.


At the same university I went to get my master’s degree.

I will do a separate post for this particular class. And also another post for my trip to Legoland. I went to Legoland for the 3rd time, I think? It was nothing special but I got the ticket for free, so why not?

By the way, if you are a fan of KPop, which I am recently (yea, judge me), you might know the boy group, Got7. They made a comeback on March 20 I believe. So while I was at Legoland, I made a little tribute to them, lol.

Got7. Flight Log: Departure. 

Also, I went back home again this month. I legit go back to Terengganu every month, which is awesome!
