2018: A Year To Remember

I took this picture. Hehe.

I know this is a bit late, it should've been posted in earlier 2019. My bad! I was quite busy earlier this month because we had our mid-semester test. So, I just finished the exams and now I'm finally home! A short, 1-week mid-semester break (yup, our mid-sem break is literally only 1 week). Oh well, I only have 4 months left before foundation ends.

Let's talk about the past (lol). I know, past is past but why not? 2018 was honestly one of the best years of my life. I met a lot of new people, been to new places, got some new stuff, and a freaking driver's license (best thing ever)! What an amazing year, a year that I will never forget.

JANUARY


Had my first part-time job! I worked at Famous Amos, Melawati Mall for 5 months. These are my work colleagues, Kak Sya & Kak Yana. I honestly miss working here so bad. It was a very new thing for me. Sometimes it was so fun, sometimes it was quite painful. I guess that's what working is like, right? But still, I really miss those times where I get to eat those delicious cookies for free, every day to the point where I was so sick of them. Whatever it is, working there was an amazing experience for me.

FEBRUARY

My little brother's first day in MRSM. He is my youngest sibling and the only one who got into a boarding school. So, it was our first time, quite a sad moment for us. We didn't really expect him to get the offer but alhamdulillah he did! We were very proud of him but so sad as well. I was the only one who cried during that day, lol. He is in MRSM Tun Abdul Razak, also known as MRSM Pekan located in Pahang.

MARCH

I'm sorry I looked ugly here, but yayyy for holidays! I went to Hong Kong with my family and of course, gotta drop by Disneyland! It was a wonderful place. I've always love theme parks. The one I enjoyed the most was the night parade. Let me tell you, it was BEAUTIFUL. Very, very well-planned. I miss it so much! I've recorded a full video of the parade but it was too long, I can't upload it here.

SPM Results Day! Of course, I will never forget that moment. I've never cried so hard in front of many people before! It was truly embarrassing. Oh well, alhamdulillah for everything. Honestly, it wasn't really for me but for my beloved parents. Alhamdulillah. I'm very proud of all my batchmates, especially my clique, Awaw!

APRIL

Went on a date with my mom! This is our first time going on a vacation without my dad and my brothers. Since I'm the first and only daughter in our family, I'm quite close with my mom. She was kind of sad that I'm leaving for university soon so she decided to bring me to Japan! Also as a gift for my SPM results. We went there during the first week of Spring. The sakura blooms so well. I didn't go to Tokyo, but Osaka. It was an amazing trip and I really, really miss Japan. Badly.

After 5 months of trying, I finally got my driver's license! Alhamdulillah, I've been waiting for sooooo long. Fyi, I started my class in December. Then I failed, like, 2 times. Seriously. I failed both the circuit and the road test at first. Then, the next one, I only passed the road test. What a waste, lol! Honestly, it was still a great experience and I'm so happy I get to drive now! Hehe.

MAY

Since all of us are continuing our student life in different pathways soon, we decided to go on a short trip together! Here are my cliques, Awaw. We've been together since Form 2 (2014) and they are literally the only best friends I've ever had in high school. There are actually 7 of us but one of us couldn't join the trip. We didn't go far, tho. We randomly searched for a nice Airbnb somewhere in KL, with a swimming pool. At least we got to hang out for 3 days 2 nights together. Here's a picture of us riding bicycles around Taman Tasik Titiwangsa.

JUNE

Raya! 2018's Aidilfitri was one of the best ones I've ever had. Well, our family rarely got the chance to take a good picture like this together. And we also rarely have an actual colour theme. Well, this year we chose to wear dark blue! This was taken at my kampung in Petaling Jaya (not really a kampung area but my grandparents' house is there, so yeah).

JULY

My journey as a foundation student begins! Here are my lovely roommates. The tallest one on the right has actually moved out from PASUM, she got another scholarship offer. She's now in Kolej MARA and there are only 3 people in my room. I love them, I'm honestly so grateful that they are my roommates and not some other people. They're the ones who will cheer me up whenever I had a bad day.

AUGUST

Nothing much but here's a picture I took this month. My classmates (excluding the boys)! I swear to God that they are the best. We have lots of lovely memories together, we clicked in so well. They're the ones who are so helpful whenever it comes to studies, homework, assignments and others. We worked together a lot.

SEPTEMBER

Celebrating Merdeka & Hari Malaysia with them! My college held this event to celebrate these special days. I wish there were fireworks but oh well. The performances were great. There are so many talented people here at my college. Singing, acting, name it! My friend in the middle performed as well.

OCTOBER

Some of you might have seen this picture. Hehe. After weeks and months of discussions and meetings, our first event went very well! Feed The Need 1.0: Kids Fun Fest. Alhamdulillah. I'm very happy with the outcome. Our team is spectacular, we got compliments from the Felos and other people for our teamwork.

NOVEMBER

Had my final semester examinations and then, of course, semester break! Again, 1 week only (duh). Since it was also a school holiday, my family and I went to Sabah! That's me featuring Mount Kinabalu at the back. And that other picture was taken by me at Tanjung Aru Beach, one of the best places to watch sunsets in Sabah. To my giveaway winners, if you guys are wondering why there was a Sabah souvenir in your mystery boxes, it was because of this trip that I had last November! Hehe.

DECEMBER

 Semester 2 begins. Again, after lots of meetings, finally we had our second volunteering program, Feed The Need 2.0: Health Care. It was a success as well, alhamdulillah. We are so happy to get to help the people in need, and also gaining new experiences from time to time.

And finally, a full, proper picture of my class, HE1! Can y'all see that theme? The guys were wearing white while the girls were wearing black with different shades of hijabs, forming like a rainbow (sort of) effect. Lol! That one in the middle is our class mentor, Dr Ungku.

WOW. That's pretty much a lot, right? There are actually more things I want to share regarding 2018 but this is already too much, I guess. About my Hong Kong, Japan, and Sabah trips, I wanted to make separate posts for each of them but it's kind of too late. I wish I could share more about those trips, especially Japan.

As you guys can see, there are lots of different faces in all these pictures I've posted. I really, really met a lot of new people this year. Honestly, I was quite introvert before. Like really. After having a part-time job, I learned to communicate even more. I'm now a bit more extrovert. Entering PASUM, I was really afraid I won't have friends (lol, but alhamdulillah, turns out I have many now! I have more friends that are not in any of these pictures I've posted.

Sums up, 2018 was amazing. I learned a lot. I gained so many new experiences in different places. I achieved a lot. Alhamdulillah for everything. Thank you to every single person who made my 2018 great. May 2019 bring new happiness, new goals, new achievements and a lot of new inspirations on your life. Wishing you a year fully loaded with happiness.

I guess it's already too late to say this but I don't care, so, HAPPY NEW YEAR PEEPS! 💘

Life Update + My Giveaway Winners!

It's d-day! I know y'all have been waiting for this update. Actually, this week I'm super-duper like hella busy. So many activities and work going on, so many complicated lectures and some tutorials, with 3 lab practicals. Gosh, let me breathe.

Oh, before that, I feel like updating about my life first. Please, let me talk.

Life update? Yeah. So, as I've said earlier, this week is a hectic one. We just had our 2nd volunteering program, Feed The Need 2.0: Health Care. It was so much fun but also very tiring. As a secretary of the organization, I'm so, so glad that everything went very well, although we didn't prepare all out just like we did for the first one. By the way, I talked a little bit about our first program which was Feed The Need 1.0: Kids Fun Fest here.

Heyyo! Spot me somewhere?

The precious people.

With my roommates! Since the theme of our 2nd program is Health Care, we've had free medical checkups for the homeless! Plus, other than giving food, we also gave free hygiene kits for the ones who did their medical checkup!

 There were many kids as well.

My lovely classmates!

And of course, the whole volunteer team. Thank you so much, everyone.

I just feel like sharing these pictures because it was such an amazing night. We got to help the homeless around KL. We went back to UM feeling very grateful for everything we have, and also full of conviction. Alhamdulillah.

Visiting Movie Animation Park Studios (MAPS)

My holiday mood is still on! Since UM is like 20 minutes away from my home and it's still school holiday, I miss home and my brothers! They'll start schooling again in 2 weeks. My little brother is going back to his MRSM soon. I want to spend more time with them. (Fun fact: I'm very close to my brothers, although I'm the only daughter.)

Actually, I go home almost every weekend. Is that bad? If UM is not this near to my house I won't be doing this. Plus, the nearby LRT station which is LRT University is one line with the LRT station near my house. No need to stop at KL Sentral or Masjid Jamek to change the line. It's just so easy for me to go home! Lol.

Alright so, last weekend my parents brought us to Movie Animation Park Studios (MAPS) at Ipoh, Perak. I'm not sure if a lot of people know about it because it's a new theme park. It was recently opened last year in June. MAPS is the first animation park in Asia. I'm not so sure about the ticket prices but they're below RM100. Since it's currently school holiday, of course, there are promotions! Visit their website guys!

Honestly, I have nothing much to say. It was fun! Of course. Just, it wasn't as good as what I've expected. Maybe because it's quite new, a few of the attractive rides that I wanted to try were closed due to maintenance. Other rides were cool as well but the ques were very long since it's a school holiday.

I recently have been enjoying this camera app called Huji. It's quite popular now, both Apple & Android has it. So, I took lots of pictures with the app! The effect is very pretty and in my opinion, it suits any kinds of pictures. Here are some of them that I wanted to share with you guys.

The entrance. That's my little brother in stripes! Hahaha. That man behind him is my father. 

After scanning your tickets, there's this long pathway bridge heading you to the theme park. Along the way, you'll meet some photographers that will offer to take pictures of you. You can claim and buy the pictures later at the front counter.

Just a random scenery picture I took. Beautiful clouds!

And here's the actual entrance to the theme park! 


These are the buildings of the theme park that I thought kind of look like Universal Studios'. So adorable and creative! It's like living in a cartoon world.

Central stage. They have quite a few performances in a day. Don't forget to take the theme park map and showtimes of the day at the information counter.

The first ride we rode! Classic, old-school swinging chairs. I still enjoy it until now! This literally never gets old. Actually, the duration of this one is quite short than usual. Not really worth the long wait in the queue. But, I love swinging chairs so it's okay.


The buildings are sooooo nice! I don't know how else to describe them. They really remind me of Disneyland. I went there last February in Hong Kong.

Boboiboy Cattus Coaster! This is a pay-per-ride roller coaster. RM15 per person. Worth it? Mhmm, I guess. This one just opened that day I went here.

Inside that cave! Dark. Waiting in line to ride the roller coaster. Hahaha.

I don't really know what this is. I just randomly took this picture when I passed by these statues. Lol.

Fantasy Forest. I didn't get to explore this part of the theme park that much because I was rushing to catch the stunt show. What show? Take a look at the next picture!

One of the main attractions here in MAPS. Stunt Legends Arena! South-East Asia's First Thrilling Car & Bike 'Live' Stunt Show. And that's my little brother again.

The ending of the show. The stunts were quite awesome! I don't know how to describe this one but basically, it was about 2 teams (red & blue) competing to see who can do the best stunts.

There are other rides we tried that I have no picture of. One of them was this 4D Animation Boboiboy Movie. It was so cute (because it's a Boboiboy movie, lol) and awesome as well! There were many little kids watching. Another thing that I thought was cute was when the kids were so impressed and excited with the 4D effects of the show. Vibrating seats and splashes of water.

Overall, I enjoyed this trip! I always love going to theme parks. If you guys haven't visit MAPS, you really should go. I guess I've expected too high, but since this theme park just launched last year, I'm sure they will improve from time to time and add more amazing rides! The price of the tickets is affordable as well.
Which theme park in Malaysia have you been to?
By the way, my giveaway is ending tomorrow guys! Tomorrow's the last day! I just packed the mystery boxes this evening. So excited to see who will win them! Woohoo! Click here if you haven't joined it. Hehe.

Ways to Relax After A Long Day

Hello, 2nd Semester! So far, so good. Well, that's literally because it's the first week. The schedule is still quite flexible, only for this week. The real struggle is starting soon. For now, I'm trying to enjoy these free time I have since there are no practicals, quizzes, presentations, and assignments yet. Next week onwards are going to be hectic!

Whether you're working or studying, sometimes it can be so tiring, right? No matter what type of job you have or what course you're taking, seriously. A long day can be very exhausting. I've been there. Gosh, this is making me miss my high school years so bad. High school years were very fun, and obviously not as hard as this current life I'm having.

1st Semester wasn't that bad because I managed to handle my stress quite well. There were those tiring days where I felt like screaming and crying. It's normal, I guess. I've learned to be more chill and relax! This is very important for our health, physically and mentally. I feel like sharing these ways on how should we relax after a very long day.

Take a long, hot shower
I don't know about you guys, but I'm that kind of person who takes a very loooong shower. Probably around 15 minutes, at least. I love it, no matter what the temperature is. And obviously, it would be even more satisfying after a tiring day. Hot shower is even better. Definitely one of the best ways to freshen yourself up!

Some music can help!
What are your favorite music genres? Well, I seriously don't have any specific ones that I like. Listening to music is a good way to relax. I know it's better to listen to the ones that are more calming but for me, any type of songs that I enjoy can really help me to escape from my mind, even just for a little while. If I'm a bit stressed, I would literally karaoke out loud and guess what, it really works! Hahaha.

Go offline
Sometimes, it's better to have some 'me-time' without any gadgets. Talk to your family, have some snacks or read a book. Turn off your smartphones and laptops! They will just remind you about all the assignments and workload you have. No, I'm not telling you to procrastinate, it's just, you need to at least have some good rest before you start doing any of those tasks back. Don't push yourself too much. 

A cup of coffee?
Hot coffee during the night is so refreshing. My favorite is Nescafe Caramel Latte. Since I'm living in my college, those 3in1 packets are very useful! I enjoy drinking these rather than Milo. But if coffee can cause you insomnia, drink something else like hot chocolate and please, avoid coffee! You will lose sleep and feel very tired during the next day. For me, since I've had lots of coffee throughout my life, 1 cup of it has no effect on me anymore. Lol! Kinda sounds weird, I know.

Deep breathing (Meditate)
One of the simplest and easiest way to relax. Take a moment to sit on your couch, close your eyes and breath in deeply and slowly. If it's not enough, go outside and breath in some fresher air instead! Do this for at least 2 minutes. It is not only going to help you to relax but also very good for your health. After a long and rushed day, taking some deep breath can be very important.

Just sleep!
Okay, I know this one it's pretty obvious. What I'm trying to say here is you need to get ENOUGH sleep. Don't stay up too long until late night doing your work. Manage your work and time properly, as long as you're getting enough sleep then that's fine. Another option is to sleep early and wake up early if you still have not finished your work yet. It is better than staying up and try to push yourself when you're already tired.

So, these some of my opinion of ways on how I relax after a very tiring day. I don't know if they suit you guys but I really hope I've helped! Whatever it is, chill lah, okay? As I've mentioned earlier, don't push yourself too much! Relax!

BY THE WAY, my giveaway is STILL GOING ON guys! 10 days left. If you want a surprise box from me, do come and join! 5 mystery boxes to be won! Woohoo! CLICK HERE.
