Nike We Run KL 10K

I can't believe it tomorrow is the day. A month has passed since the day I bought the RM20 student promotion price to enter the Nike We Run KL 10K Marathon (10km). With this purchase, I received a race pack containing an awesome official Dry Fit Nike shirt for the run, then a Nike water bottle, a D-tag (which I have not figured out how to use it yet), alongside a cool Nike plastic-paper-nylon (errr) bag, then an information poster on the run plus a 20% voucher on Nike Running products. Since my trainers have depreciated over the two years of wearing 'em everyday during riadah in SAMURA, I purchased the Air Pegasus + 28 (Black/Grey and Pink) one yesterday in Nike, One Utama.
It looks a bit striking but, I just love the pink and black combination. Oh yeah, there was a baby blue one as well, but I think Farisha suits that one best. She really should get that one. It was baby blue and grey.

So, tomorrow will be the run. And I am SO not prepared for it. My longest jog-walk would be 5km in Putrajaya during the Be The Movement Charity Walk in support of World Hunger Relief. That walk took me around an hour. Though clearly everyone was walking because it's a walk. It looks kind of odd when you try and run. Tomorrow's 10km would be a RUN. Husna, Alicia, Awad, Syafirie and Syahmi promised to come. Maybe Farisha, Aiysyah and Yvonne are still in doubt. I hope they'll come :) . It will be fun. You don't know there are things that you might be able to do if you don't try. I hope everything goes well, and we all run safely. More information on the run > Nike Running

Crazy and fun moments with Syiqin, Tiyah, Amal and Farisha yesterday in OU.
Our mission was, to play bowling, find my running shoes, then Amal's shoes for a wedding that she'll attend.
We went bowling first, played 2 games, where Farisha played brilliantly and scored 143 for her second game.  Mine was still around my average marks. Should brush up the way I throw the ball.
Ye, Syiqin kata baik baring je. Hoho. Well, I'll try to take out the 10 lbs ball we have at home and ask my brothers to tag along and play in Kajang.

Malaysian Studies, Islamic Studies and Moral Education

Assalamualaikum and hello everyone!
So today I just feel like posting something here and I thought I can write up some stuff about the Mata Pelajaran Wajib examination that my friends and I will sit this Friday and upcoming Monday.
Just so you know, before getting the certificate, exam results or such, from a private college you'll need to complete these subjects required by the government. Of course the requirement is to pass, and that is at least 50%. For us sponsored students, I think the least you can get is a B. Well, although they don't highlight that fact but still, you are expected to get at least a B somehow.

The final paper will be 40% and the other 60% will be for attendance, presentation, your engagement in the class, and paperwork on a project.

Of course the Muslim students will answer the Islamic Studies paper and the non-Muslims will have to take the Moral Education paper. Then, all Malaysians MUST answer the Malaysian Studies paper.
I still am not very sure about if you are in Matrikulasi and IPTA, but I am quite certain that every student doing courses in the private institution need to pass these papers.
Oh yeah, for Bahasa Malaysia, you get an exemption from the paper if you credited your SPM paper.
Well, wish us all the best of luck, insyaAllah we can do it :) - trying to study on random stuff about Malaysia (baru dapat kesedaran setelah 18 tahun, terukteruk) .


Moving on,
I can't remember who advised me but I know he or she said that we should not waste time, and need to have a university that we aim to go by now. Or at least, search for some during the December break. I am the typical student where I don't mind where I'll be sent to as long as I get the opportunity to study abroad in UK and fulfil the criteria from the sponsors.
The university that I am kinda attracted to for now is University of Bath and Lancaster University.
But it depends :), I still have a few more months to think about this before applying for UCAS. Just gonna look around and ask for advices from ones who know better :) .
So if you wanna give an opinion or share previous experience about UCAS and all, please do. 

Tennis Court Oath

Assalamualaikum :),
Blogging late at night. Great.
Well, today has been an easy day. Now THIS is how college life should be. Or how I dreamt it to be.
Started off the day with swimming with Amal, Syiqin and Huda, then had only 4 hours of class where 2 hours was for Malaysian Studies and the other two was for Physics, doing only practical assessment, then cooked an awesome dinner; mihun sup, and now feeling all contempt. Ngee~

So I learned this 'Tennis Court Oath' term from my friends, those taking History.
It is something from the French Revolution, and they made an oath to stay on the Tennis Court until they get that something they want.
I decided to make a few Tennis Court Oaths myself excluding the part where I will stay on any court until I get that something.
Maybe I'll say it is just a little promise that I want to make and hope to keep.
Well, I made one before, it was about exercising everyday, and it looks like I can't fulfil that well because it has been raining a lot lately in the evenings when we come back after classes. Then, sometimes some days are just tiring you just need to relax after reaching home.
Then, I kinda wanna make one today. Because I made some sort of a promise to do better for Physics in the next exam, I will study Physics at least a little bit before I go to sleep every weekday. Well, the reason is, we don't get homework for Physics, so I tend to leave the subject out, focusing more on Accounting and Maths, since there are tons of homework for them both. For Economics on the other hand, the tutorials come in a bulk, and then you're free once you complete them.

Oh yeah, Minggu Kebudayaan Melayu 2012 is going to be held on February. I can't wait to pull it off, I know MCS 2011/2012 will be able to make this whole thing a fun experience and a brilliant show!
Keep reading for more info ;). Hehe, well I bet there will be lots about MKM later on when I feel like posting something on here.
Another thing, random stuff do happen a lot lately. Well, when has it not?

Salam Aidiladha!

Assalamualaikum :),

Happy Eid ul Adha everyone.
This year is a very special one for me indeed. And I believe so too for my family.
All is very exciting and lively at Atok's house today and yesterday.
I wish both of them could see, but nevermind, I know they are well happy there :) .

Last year I was walking around SAMURA with my best friends, eating daging korban with my dorm mates at the Dewan Makan... The memory seems so fresh that it felt like things that happened was just yesterday. But believe it or not, one year surely has passed. Time flies whether or not you're waiting for something to happen. Random.

For Eidul Adha I didn't buy a new baju kurung, as it is like a tradition where the Malays would buy new traditional clothes on Eidul Fitr. Then ibu asked me to wear the jubah that we made for Pak Anjang's kenduri kahwin. Then I randomly chose this very soft 'selendang' that someone gave Ibu when they went to Makkah. It is so flowyyy that I kinda feel graceful. :P random again. Well it's not everyday you get to wear a jubah and a selendang from Makkah right.

I better start making sense in writing. I wanted to search for the Physics assignment that I had to hand in later in 2 weeks time, but I did not feel like it and ended up blogging.
After Paksu, Pak Yop, Abah, Hazim, Ilham, Muhammad and Hasif comes back from the sunat prayer, I bet we will be taking photos and I feel that this time it will be a very special one indeed.
Well, I better 'repair' this 'too flowyyy' selendang. Random again.

All I can say is I am very happy because all of them are very 'open' and welcoming, it's like we didn't even have those years of separation. I feel loved and I love them and I am very glad we meet again :) .


#Well, sometimes you see things, but you try to deny it, but then a part of your heart says it is true.
