Life after Exams:Overrated..

Good morning everybody! As the title suggests, I have finished my exams and got nothing to do.. (Well, that is only half true. Gots stuff to do but kinda malas to do them..) But in all honesty, I am just bumming around in the house, which I now have all to myself since my housemates semua sudah balik kampung. Oh, this post wont be about Berlin (but I can say its just around the corner, so wait for it!). Right, i finished my papers last friday and since then, keraja saya makan, minum serta tidur.. And the weather was quite buntu so i didnt bother to go out jua (was raining, windy and cold!)

So let me tell some stories about this year's exam experience. I just had three exam papers this year (will have just two papers in my third year). And everytime I tell people that I have just three papers, the common responses i get are "Ugh, I hate you!" or "Sasak ku mendangar eh!!" Yes, when people say "I'm happy if you're happy." they are lying! Haha.. I was surprised i didnt get hate mail to my house.. Buka sampul, ada card that says "Three Eff-in papers?? I hate you!!"

During the first paper, I was quite nervous for some reason (aku rasa sebab inda biasa with exam conditions). And after the usual announcements were made ".. you are not allowed to smoke.." (SIAPA KAN BESIGUP TIME EXAM AH??) we got to writing and i calmed down a bit (the lecturer was nice enough to set a question that we went through in detail in the revision class four days before..) In my three hour paper, things understandably get boring for the invigilators. Arah kami kana sediakan air minum for the candidates so all you have to do is minta and kana bawakan tu straight to your table (macam Mamih jua lah. SIASIAPUN!) Halfway through the paper, karing leher abis peramba so minta tah ku air. ISKI WAH THE INVIGILATOR ada something for her to do!! And when the lady brought the water over, she put the cup down on my table and kaciuman semerbak wanginya perfume nya!! It was so nice! Mun ikutkan hati, balik balik ku minta air arahnya.. Mun urang lain bawakan, i'll say "Uhh, no no. Not you please. Can the nice smelling lady get my water? Yeah, her. You just put that back or drink it yourself, aite? Hey, maybe tomorrow you use perfume and provide for my rehydrational needs if its not too much to ask. Nice turtleneck tho."

It is nice that we get water provided during the exams. Nda payah susah susah bawa sendiri.. Well, nda pulang susah susah, just fill bottle and bawa.. Sebenarnya botol ku Dora the explorer wah, iatah malu kan ku bawa.. If only dapat bebata indo mie masuk exam hall ah.. Happy saya tu.. Anyways, after my last paper. Everyone was understandably happy and I left for home straight away. I saw this lady bersigup and kajar kajar kesajukan outside the building (it wasnt that cold, i was just wearing a tshirt!) And ia atu berjacket sudah tu.. Iatah, bersigup lagi nah. And going joggin or choosing low fat mayo once in a while wouldnt kill, you know.. (Seriously, sini its a disease!!) Time ku balik atu, it was drizzling but very very lightly that the water was in aerosol form, almost like it was sprayed into the air.. Macam mun urang sneeze in front of you without covering their mouth, but it was slightly more pleasant..

Macam ani lah lebih kurang experience nya, but without the sweaty man with the covered eyes..

So masa ani keraja ku menalor lah d rumah, wanted to watch a movie on my laptop the other day, so i decided to muat turun dari laman web. Was gonna type the name of the movie yang kan ku download, cudnt think of any!! Oh well, nanti tah ku try lagi (siapa ada title of good movies to watch, PLEASE tell me!!) Some of my other activities include playing football sorang sorang di cage arah Skinner Street and cari kelayi sama pigeon: My neighbour ada birdfeeder so banyak burung hinggap arah that birdfeed and on our pagar. If luan overcrowded rasaku, I slam my window shut so that the pigeons are startled and all but the bravest (or deafest) birds stay and continue lepak and makan.. and then happy tah rasa ku.. Yes, I am THAT kesian masa ani.. Will appreciate if readers just keep this between ourselves ;p In my defence, the birds yang hinggap on the fence will face the birdfeed and the parts that dont face the birdfeed release unpleasant stuff into our garden.. inda kan ia sibuk sibuk turn around, poop, then turn around balik, nda ja? nama nya burung, nda skulah.. come to think about it, skulah kali bah coz ia tau NOT to beria in the garden of the lady who feeds them, but to poop arah the house of the dude who bothers them and scares them when they eat and hang out innocently.. come to think about it, im surprised they dont fly to my window, leave a "thank you" gift and fly back off.. If only burung ada middle finger..

Got waAay too much time on my hands..

I got couple more stuff to blog about sebenarnya yang inda related to berlin and exams. But i try to keep this post short-ish. Oh, aku makan di Wagamama sama Si Yus and Si Mas (yes, nama dorang andang ada "Si" in front) few months back, and i got bored while waiting for the food so ku pinjam pen si Mas and tulis my name in jawi on the menu. This came out..

Apa yang ganjil nah? Those yang inda buta huruf in jawi will realise that the above arrangement of letters will read "Adbi" (or those yand pikir ia pandai baca tapi banar banarnya nda berapa skill might read it as "Adabi"..) Daym.. Ironically, that was written not long after ku cakap arah Si Yus- "Aku always mau namaku kana eja properly and in full." Kurang asam... But aku pandai tulis jawi bah biasanya! And Im sure i still do.. What happened was an honest mistake! Banar!!

"Yes Dibs, honest mistake.. Riiiight.."

Oh, talking about names, I would like to greet the following person a happy belated birthday.. "walaupun dirimu tak ku kenali, tetapi lobang hidungmu tetap menjadi FOOjaan hatiku.."

Maybe one of the parents suka banar kan marvel superheroes.. Syazwi, if you are reading this, I know you are a big Superman and Batman fan but please, PLEASE dont do this to any of your children. Sayangilah mereka.. (Especially not the first one since the first selalu subject to experiments by the parents..) Tantu pulang ko bagi nama Adbi kah.. Adib kah.. heheh ;p But mun anak ani kawin or naik haji cali ni.. "Saya Haji Batman, terima Dayangku NorFulanah.." Oh, id like to point out nada segment "Totally Unrelated" in this post cost banyak stuff yang nda related in it anyways..

Oh, id also like to mention yang masa exam aku kekurangan tidur coz aku revise till akhir malam and bangun awal to continue lagi. One night I slept at three and woke seven ish.. Baik jua inda terjejas prestasi peperiksaan saya.. But one of my friends told me that i did have some funky eyebags going on.. Well, fortunately, I found a solution to it:

This thing must be really good..

Bah, thats all that i have for now.. Will have some more stories and pictures up by this weekend insya allah.

Assalamualaikum, and thanks for dropping by. Tanpa kamu, siapalah aku.. :)

(Oh, i changed my display pic coz controversial apparently.. Its just an ice lolly bah!! >:p )

Berlin ist Super-awesome~! (Part one)

Assalamualaikum! Ohmigod its been such a long time! An alternative title for this post would be "overdue menstrual cycle" (siapa nda tau kenapa, tanya si Rabz). But yeah, aku atu kiranya kan pencen wah dari blogging ani. Inda tercari masa kan duduk dapan laptop and bekurapak arah skrin ah. But anyways, this post will be an intro to the great GREAT time I had d Jarman amnya dan Berlin khususnya. Shout out to Ali, Rabz (i mentioned u second coz u kata ud rindu Ali rather than me >:p he's in canterbury for crying out loud! haha nothing personal), Imah, Huda and especially Uncle Ali, Auntie Noriah and Kaka Haslin!! (Who has been the brilliant brilliant company/hostess for the whole trip, kami sayang kaka! Tanpa kaka siapa lah kami!) Anyways, this post will be a short, and mainly pictorial intro to the trip.. Pics used are from the first day we were in Berlin.

Right, we arrived early morning (4am i think) at Luton airport. The morning at the airport started with us sleeping at the benches there (Si Imah gambar aku tidur!! Mun ku tau ku gambar ia tidur LANGAP LANGAP dalam kerita.) But nda apa, sabar saja kan.. pakal saja senyuman mu menawan hati.. Haha. ;p

Wardrobe malfunction started the day off pretty well..

There were also cases of men doing not so manly things (guys got to moisturise too!!)

Gila laju eh tangan si Ali pakai losyen ah..

Yeah, sampat lagi begambar wah dalam airport ah. Sorang sorang kelaparan. Maklumlah, easyjet KARIT nada makanan. (At this point id like to point out si Ali masak pasta and i had it di Brunei hall. Was quite good! Thanks bro!) When we arrived at Berlin Schoenefeld, the weather was quite warm and we were greeted by Danny, who also drove us to the residence of our host, Uncle Ali.

Sunny day and kana tagur coz aku begambar arah airfield time baru landing tadi.. Nda sampai lima minit, buat pasal tia udah..

Lapas samapai d rumah uncle Ali, we were shown to our rooms, and guys and girls had separate rooms and showers. Just to point out, there was one day where i had four showers (yes, the shower was THAT good!!) We wanted to head out somewhere that day jua so we went to visit Sanssouci palace. Lawa tempatnya nyanta!!

Left to right: Rabz, Ali, Yang di muliakan Muhammad Adib Hashim, Doktor Kaka Haslin Ali dan Huda

Kuning coz national colour abisdorang..

Introducing the aforementioned Imah, note the smile.. Haha

Lawa sarung tangan saya? (Glove pinjam..)

And the weather got warm..

Meanwhile, the naked statues did their thing..

...and Ali did his..

Ahh, love was in the air.. (Smelt an awful lot like the diesel fumes from my Kia Carens..)

..but all jokes aside, this was a beautiful place..

Excessive amounts of nudity aside, this was a beautiful place..

...I mean, just look at it.. Tak lawa ke tu?? (click to see larger image)

...Ada beautiful people..

Its even got an awesome windmill!! (not that awesome banarnya, didnt move an inch while we were there. Verily, it was the most passive windmill ive ever seen..)

We taught Rabz a lesson in being discreet once in a while, tapi macam nda berapa berhasil..

It was a tiring day but it was a magnificent start to the trip! Lapas abis di Sanssouci (pronounced sand sushi) we went home and got ready to have dinner with Uncle Ali and family at this turkish restaurant.. The food was the bomb!! Me and Ali oredered this meal that concisted of two strips of kofte with rice. Dalam gambar on menu damit saja.. In real life, basar hantap!! Terpedaya kami.. And sambalnya padas! Kalah sambal nasi katok ku! Those who know me will not be surprised that i was sweating buckets due to the padasness.. Tapi nyaman.. I really struggled to finish the meal coz BANYAK!! but since si Ali finished the food, pressure ku jua kan menghabiskan, kira terpaksalah untuk jaga water face.... Ilang tia macho kan mun order basar tapi inda abis..

Suasana meriah di restoran Turki.. (far left is Uncle Ali and wife, Auntie Noriah. From far right: Normal Ali, Imah, Huda, Rabz, Kaka Haslin)

FIrst day udah siuk wah d Berlin ah, expect better stories in the next part!! Last but not least, here is gambar ku tidur d Luton airport (Si Imah tu gambar... Ingat Imah, doa orang teraniaya mudah di makbulkan.. heheh ;p )

Baik jua nada cecair mengalir atau terjadinya langap langap.. Manage to sleep in public with dignity fully intact..

And one more thing before I sign off, id like to do someting that has become sort of a tradition with my last few posts (altho im sure payah kamu kan ingat coz nda jua malar banar aku blogging aia kan..) Thats right, its time for something thats:

U guys know i got this sweet tooth, right ? (Well, if kamu inda tau, im telling you now) I just love chocs (white, please) and ice cream and I take it for granted that I, as a male species, am eligible to enjoy whatever confectionery i wish.. Until i found this:

Men's chocolate?? All this while I thought chocolate was unisexual!! I also found another thing that was peculiarly made for men in Berlin (and its even more controversial than this.. BELIEVE ME..) Wait for it (dalam dua bulan kah.. kidding!)

Bah thats it for now.. Until next time, take care!

P.S. Sorry it took me way too long!! But atleast ada kan?
