The next phase of my life
Monday, 15 May 2017 • 22:44 • 0 commentsZupp silent reader (if I have one).
Title lok. Gempak jak bunyi. Nothing much lah actually. Only 5 months away till convocation day. Am I excited? Boleh dikatakan, ya iyalah belajar berapa tahun dah takkan belum habis2 lagi kan (padahal 2 1/2 years jak pun ceh ceh)? So, mesti ada closure gitchu. Will I miss my college days? Of course, and please insert typical sad quotes about leaving college/graduating here. I don't know tho, sekarang memang belum lg lah mau miss miss tunggu lah lepas 5 tahun di alam pekerjaan nanti (yerr kejam, pahal lama sgt tunggu mau rindu I pun xfaham). Kay kay without further ado, brace yourself because.. I'm gonna make a list on the things/places that I'm going to miss later. Lol
1. Our bathtub!
Okay please cringe hahaha siap tanda seru lagi tu eleh but yup yup, I'll miss our bathtub. By our I meant my hostel mates. It's not really a hostel, it's more to rumah sewa lah cause it's not under our college management but it's not like rumah sewa because it's like an apartment type whereby banyak2 pintu kalau kau lalu kat laluan tu. Geddit geddit? If not, kau imagine jak apartment low budget ala2 bilik hotel. When you first enter each unit, you will come across the bathroom first. So, hotel-like-apartment? Wth this is getting complicated hahahaha setakat describe tempat tinggal jak pun alaaa. Anyway, I still call it hostel hek hek. Well, so back to my bathtub storeh. Lawa bah diam hostel ada bathtub acah2 mandi dalam spa lagi tu siap buat foaming2 bubble2 bath dalam bathtub kalau tiada kelas/freetime/de-stress diri ini waseh. The other unit tiada lg tu bathtub dorang hahaha because most of the owner renovated their bathroom and installed electric shower in it. Oleh itu kawan kawan, saya bersyukur walaupun sekadar bathtub *wink wink
2. Kuching Waterfront (+keropok lekor)
Dimana diri ini boleh bersantai ala2 tourist duduk kat kerusi panjang di sana sambil dengar talented people busking sambil melahap manja keropok lekor yang perghh banyak sungguh kuantitinya kalau beli harga RM5. Keropok lekor di Miri 5 ketul=RM1. Sedeh. The journey to KW from my hostel took me less than 10mins la, jalan kaki ya. Walk foot ya. Wth punya translation hahaha k tak lawak. Plus, KW is one of the place where I always spent my quality time with G ataupun dating dalam kata lainnya. Yerr sikit kah kah kah. Anyway, (anyway ni harus muncul tiap kali mau menyokong ayat seterusnya) you, I'll miss you KW. Kalau balik Miri nanti sorry lah ya jalan kaki 10minit macam tu mau dpt pemandangan yang indah. Yang ada hanyalah SMK Riam cemerlang. Bolehlah indah. Ada bunga. Atau tengok adik2 handsome training main bola.
3. Vivacity Megamall
Sebab disini jak ada Kaison. Kaison is love. Miri bila lagi mau ada Kaison ha?
Hahahaha siapa yang rajin pergi rindu Everise ni. That's me. Overly attach with Everise because that's the closest supermarket with our hostel here. Everise give me life. Like literally. Because it's where I shopped my food supplies lol so thank you for your existence Everise.
5. Kuching Foooooooooooood!
"When you go to another place, taste the food. That's what bring people together."
That's not famous people's quote. Tak terpelajar betul bunyi. I made that up hahahahaha apakah tetiba taste their food and then you'll become close. Sis malas cari quote :') With that being said, therefore, I'm gonna eat like a pig before fly back to Miri later (this August). Kuching pork satay, belacan bee hoon, Kuching laksa, aiskrim gula apung, gong pia, ayam bakar, and ahhh the list goes on! Yknow, I realized one thing tho while I'm here in Kuching. My area, where I live now, is blessed with loads of good stalls with delicious food! Padungan area, dekat2 dengan area I sini, is where the good food are. If you rajin jalan kaki along that area, you'll gain 5kg in a couple of hours (exaggerating) because you gotta make a stop to try various type of food there. There are lots of food in that area that you die die must try. Gitew. And oh one more thing, Kuching Festival will be on the 1st-31st of August this year which means..
There will be food fair! The festival will be held at Majlis Dewan Bandaraya Kuching, which also means.. less than 5mins car ride to reach there from our hostel. Uber kan ada *wink wink. So, Karen, just a friendly reminder: Please please menabung kalau tau nafsu makan tu macam blue whale.
Contoh contoh makanan yang boleh dinikmati di food fair ya tuan tuan dan puan puan.

Hokay. So far I have 5 things on my list now although I sounded like I'm gonna miss the entire building in this city earlier. The list is not completed yet and therefore, part II will see ya in the my next post. Siapalah mau baca ni hahaha storytelling to myself :') Anyway, blog to express katanya tadi.
It's 1012pm now, which means I dedicated 1 hour and 10mins for this entry hahaha such dedication. I have so much free time so no harm lah.
Btw, I'm doing great here coping with my last semester (this sem) in my final year. Currently doing part-time job as a waitress at TGCHK because my class is only on Tuesday and Thursday (too much free time). Cari sendiri mana tu lol. Ok, a waitress? No sweat. It's not difficult lemon difficult job because I ada experience with this kind of job during my post-form-5 era EXCEPT there will be some days where you'll encounter rude guest. Wait, not just encounter. Serve their table some more. Terer translation tok. Being a waitress for buffet setting is less challenging than being a waitress in the banquet hall. 3 years ago, where I first started as a waitress for buffet breakfast, my first thought was "Hey, it's not that bad. Nasib tidak kena panggil di banquet hall." And yes, it's not that bad+heavy job compare to those banquet's waitress punya kerja. I made a pact that I won't accept the supervisor's call if they ask me to work at the banquet hall. Hahahaha that was silly because 3 years later, which is this year and this month to be exact, I accept the job offer for banquet hall's waitress.
I was so reluctant at first when Winnie asked me to go with her and I die die say I don't want banquet, I can only work for buffet setting. Kebodohan apakah itu.. duit masuk weh daripada duduk mati kutu kat dalam bilik ulang tayang drama Korea yg dah habis tengok dari tahun lepas dah lol. Anyway, saya sahut seruan itu kerana Milo melahirkan juara kan. Peminum setia Milo sila lambaikan tangan. My first time as a banquet waitress, kaki ini sangat letih hingga saya merasakan kaki ku membunuhku (my feet is killing me) because of the long hours of standing plus kasut baru yg tidak mau bekerjasama langsung hingga meninggalkan blisters di tumit. Three blisters. Three. Lengan almost berotot otot dek pinggan yang berat. Ku gagahkan juga. Alaa blisters+upcoming big muscle only ma. What's so bad about that (ceh fefeeling wanita mithali yang gagah). And ya, we finished at 11pm and habis clear semuanya around 1130pm. And then Winnie paksa diri ini teman dia pergi makan lalu kami pun pergi makan (to Petanak Wet Market). Finished our supper at 1230am and we headed straight to our own room. Tewas di atas bed selepas mandi apa semua dalam 130am. To all banquet waitress and waiter, I understand what does it feel like buat kerja tu hahaha and saat campak diri atas tilam tu memang heavennnnnn bah kan. Before this, jadi guest jak selalukan, tukang pergi attend dinner dan sebagainya, tunggu waiter datang serve saja, but hah this time I'm the one who serve the guest. Rasa awkward mesti tolak tepi jauh jauh lah. Begitchu. That's the end of my first day as a banquet waitress. So far, masuk 3 kali sudah lah jaga di banquet hall and 3 kali juga ditempatkan di tempat buffet in this month. I ok jer. The Lord is my strength *wink
Info selingan: Our Uber driver that night, the one who fetched us from Petanak to our hostel, he was drunk hokay. The smell of beer was so strong in his car weh. Dahla belok masuk simpang laju2. Thank God we reached our hostel safely. Fuhh. Note to self, the chances to meet drunk Uber driver is high when it's already midnight. So, please avoid keluar lewat malam ya Karen. I blame Winnie for this kah kah kah beria-ria sangat ajak pergi makan lewat2.
It's 1054pm now. Fefeeling blogger terbilang sudah ni taip lama lama maka cerita tidak juga gempak sangat kah kah kah. Ok, mandi!

Tuesday, 14 February 2017 • 01:42 • 0 commentsZupp! Rajin pulek mau update harini (padahal melencong dari mencari journal sebenarnya). Just a quick update on what happened last Saturday. It was... *insert drumroll*
MY COUSIN'S WEDDING!
Was excited af because well, she's my first cousin and my childhood mate eventhough we have a huge age gap. Ehmm lies. She's only like, what.. 4 or 5 years older than me?
Anyway, last Saturday was her big day and the wedding was held at one of the Roman Catholic church here in Miri. Let me tell you this, the morning before the wedding mass started was a hella ride! I'm gonna start with the make-up session. Since there was no professional MUA to the make-up for us, the bridesmaids, one of my cousin decided to volunteer to do so since none of us the bridesmaids know. She's not that pro with this make-up thingy but she ever went to this one make-up class by Mary Kay so apa-apa jak lah janji tidak macam badutss. In her we trust! Anyway, that morning, she was supposed to show up before 9am sebab wedding mass started at 11am. Unfortunately, she arrived at our house at 10am something and.. apa lagi, rushing segalanya. There were five of us; the bridesmaids. She only managed to do make-up on 3 persons only! My phone was bombarded by calls from the wedding planner, my aunt and my cousin (the bride) asking "where are you gals right now?! Hurry up!" Makin lah kecoh satu rumah! Everyone was rushing and getting easily annoyed because we were panicking as well. It was 1045am when we were done with our make-up (baru 3/5 orang saja sudah k). By that time, we should have arrived at the church but.. Um yeah. My cousin aka our MUAAmateur aka the bride's older sister, dia lagi la belum make-up! She was busy doing our make-up but dia sendiri yang belum. Talk about sacrifice for your beloved fam. ❤
While we were on our way, 2 of the bridemaids; my younger sisters to be precise, both of them did their make-up in the car. Turns out pretty tho hahaha I can't believe their emergency skill work at its finest.
When we arrived there, it started drizzle and we hurried to the church main entrance to get in our position. What pissed us off that day was, there was a minor technical problem and therefore the piano couldn't be play! Aunty-aunty pun start bising-bising sebab how to walk in if there's no entrance music?! Jeez. But thankfully, the choir's melodious voice was in harmony and so it was kinda life saver instead of nothing lah kan. So, let's moving on to the "I DO" part. Ninjas were cutting onion during that part where the bride was reciting her wedding vow. The bride's eyes were teary before even finish with her vow. Demmit I was teary too hahaha terharu oi.
The ceremony ended at 1240pm and continued with lunch buffet at the church's multi-purpose hall,
And before I blah dari laptop ni,
Also, on the same day, I fell because of my 3 inches wedges. And my knees bled. My kind of hell-py ending.

Till next time!
Wednesday, 8 February 2017 • 23:00 • 0 commentsZupp folks! You know.. I read somewhere that blogging is dead but I refuse to believe that 'cause I'm here to prove that blogging is just as relevant as it has ever been! One of my friend was like "Eh people still using blog meh?" Duhh of course they still do especially your friend here. The thing is, I still want to keep track of what's going on in my life here even though I rarely written as much as I did before (yeah but my previous post semua merapu pula kan).
Ok, chop chop!
So.. Just a quick hello to 2017! Time flies really fast eh. It's February already?! *gasps* Only 2 months left for me to finish my internship. Oh wait. Intership? Yes yes. I'm currently doing my internship/practicum in my hometown here. So, I chose PDK as my internship place. For those of you who don't know what PDK is, PDK or Pusat Pemulihan Dalam Komuniti/ Community-Based Rehabilitation is a center that provide training program for disabled people offered by the government through Jabatan Kebajikan Malaysia. As a psychology student, it is vital for me to socialize with people and working with them regardless of their age, ethnicity, status and etc in order to gain insight into people's behavior. And therefore, I'll have to dig for the answers through observation or conduct a mini research. Tryin to find out what causes their action? How can I influence human behavior?
Okie dokie. Why did I choose PDK anyway ayy?
Well, mainly because I'd like to enhance my communication skills. There are about 70+ students here, ranging from age 2-30> years old, with different kind of physical disabilities (antaranya ialah autism, Down Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy). Dealing with these special people makes me to learn how to communicate with them especially with one of my mute student. I learn sign language from the teachers here and turn out I'm a fast learner hahaha even though I only knew a few signs only. Anyway, still learning here. *wink
Secondly(essay format detected), doing my internship here in PDK help me to develop my working skills. You see, being a trainee here doesn't mean I only doing observation or just for the sake of completing my research but I also engage in the vocational class where the teachers teach the students to do handicrafts such as beaded bracelets, keychains, mini pillows and floor mat. So, my task in the vocational class is to do some cutting for the floor mat and the mini pillows. Sewing? Erm belum pro lagi. I still need to observe them often though hahaha but hand-stitches I boleh k (underwear la especially kan).
Thirdly, erm.. I think I don't have the third reason heh heh. Oh before I forget, my first day at the center.. everyone was like "Wah, student psikologi oo. Can you read my mind?" The answer is, NO.
Just to be clear, we psychology students are not psychic or mind reader yah. If you are still clueless, go Google "The Role of Psychologist". It's kinda annoying when they keep on asking the asking question. Anyway, Imma kewl girl, Imma Imma kewl girl..
Just mau luah sikit nih kan, sensitif pula rasa internship di tempat begini nih. Bukan apa, cepat tersentuh pula hati ni tengok dorang budak-budak istimewa ni kadang-kadang berhuhu-huhu. What I love about psychology is, mata ni dapat terbuka sikit sebab observe bermacam jenis benda sekeliling kita especially kehidupan di sekeliling kita. I learn that I should not take things for granted and perlu appreciate every little things in life lebih-lebih lagi kita yang sempurna fizikal ni diberi Tuhan. Sounds cliche ayy? But that's the truth tho. Salute dengan family dorang ni sebab kan panjang sabar dengan dorang yang selalu meragam ni and also, always keeping up with their need. Giteww. "Where our strength runs out,God's strength begins." I pray that God will continue to bless their family with strength and joy! *wink
So, I think that's all for now. Gotta do some research now folks! I haven't started anything. Pfft
p/s: I will survive
pp/s: The kids call me "teacher" :')

Have patience for the ones who are still trying to find who they are and where they fit in life. Give them the grace they need when they change courses, careers, hairstyles and clothes. Be considerate of the chaos in their mind and relaxed in your immediate desire to doubt and judge them. Remember all the times you walked down a pathway, drove down a road or followed a river - only to find that it didn’t take you where you believed it would.. Remember them, and remember the reassurance you needed to hear every time things came to a stop. Remember who you needed, and be that companion for those around you who are still mapping out their goals and dreams. Fill them with glorious hope and ignite visions in their heart. Surround them with assurance of better tomorrows and exciting futures. Encourage them to imagine and explore potentials and possibilities and to move forward from all that they leave behind, by ending well. Help them to close doors at peace and say goodbyes with a wholesome heart. Don’t let them lose their pace or get distracted along the way; in fact, take them on your journey when they become stagnant and pick them up when they collapse in a heap. Love all that is good within them and all that is productive that comes out of them, and give your honest to God best when they feel they have nothing to give. Be there to pioneer what comes next, and champion their desires as your own. Cheer them on in their changes; and cover their movements with prayer. Point them to the Maker when they lose their direction and turn the other cheek when their frustration is misplaced with you. Hold tight and don’t give up. When success is in clear view and they fall short of reaching their potential; patch their wounds and heartaches with courage and kindness - and allow them to grieve through it, and grow. When they make it (and they will), be the one who believes ‘well done’ without wondering if they will fail again.. But most of all, allow God to fill you with the riches of His heart, so that your well of giving will never run dry. Let your life be overflowing with the fruits of The Spirit; and crowded with the nature of the King you serve, reflect and love.
