The Longest Trip


Few days ago (?) i went for a trip organized by UiTM.

It was a week full of a lot of happenings and most importantly,
a lot of places to visit and interesting people to meet.



Day One:

3.00pm - we gathered in TESL Square and waited for the bus to come.

3.30pm - had lunch and still waiting.

4.10pm - the bus came and we upload all stuff into it.

4.15pm - Group photo in from of INTEC Library.


*Snap!*

4.30pm - the long journey started.

It took us about 8 to 9 hours to reach UiTM Chendering.


To kill time,





We Posed!





We dribble the Keypad! (like mad)





We Slept! (for hours)



...AND...





We Camwhore! XD

....


12.35am - we unload our bags, unpack our stuff and spend the 1st night in the Hostel.
............................................................................


Day Two:



TGANU STATE LIBRARY DAY!!!

..........

7.00am - woke up, get ready for the 1st activity with school kids at the State Library.




The Library was HUGE!

almost like a shopping mall.

There are two separate cafeteria.

It's own auditorium/hall.

Few classrooms (for tuitions and seminars).

3 or 4 story high. (didn't have the chance to explore it though)


Our activity:

Our group was responsible of handling Year 1 to 3.


The kids were extremely shy at first.

But when the games started, the warmed up instantly.

We had fun figuring out the spellings. They laugh. Cute faces.
I took a mental photograph of everything. It was a memorable day.

My team won the best team. huhuhuhu...

We go "Quack, Quack, Quack" everytime we finished.. LOL.


Thanks to Sam for such wonderful games.


These are my kids: *Picture*




Clockwise: Syazmin, Arif, Me, Aufa,Yasmin and...




Naufal. :)



2pm:

Mila took us touring around.

I think Tganu has the Biggest Mydin mall in Malaysia.

Then we went to Noor Arfa Batik House.





The batik artwork there is absolutely amazing.

The designs blew our mind away...

The texture is soft and unique.

World Class Production I dare say.

The company has been manufacturing Batik for the global market for more than 20 years.

But the price is, quite expensive.

2 meters Batik clothes may cost up to RM400 to RM600

But still, there are other affordable batik there with captivating designs.

............


5.30pm - we went back to hostel to freshen up.


6.00pm - our journey continued.



We stopped at Masjid Kristal (Crystal Mosque Kuala Terangganu)


Despite the controversy over the architect of the Mosque and other stuff,

This Mosque truly is one of a kind. It's remarkable on the inside as it is from the inside.

It is said that a Genie is roaming around it admiring its beauty and protecting it.

Wallahua'lam. (Only God knows).



................

9.oopm - We went to Dataran Shah Bandar.


At night, the place reminds me of UpTown Section 24 Shah Alam.

But the booths was not even half the size of UpTown 24. :P

The place is big. But we decided to not roam too far since we were very tired.



11.30 - we head back to Hostel.



Day Three:



Teluk Ketapang (TK) Here we c0me!!!!



TK is a famous Homestay spot in Terengganu.

We were there to help out with the cooking and cleaning.


Our programme consisted of a game of futsal and a visit to the orphanage home there.


But ironically, the Orphans were on a vacation at their relative's homes. (O.O)


and the Fields aren't in perfect condition for any sport activity accept gardening. XD

So we cooked and cleaned the area and we had the MOST DELICIOUS meal i've ever had in a LONGGGGG Time.


*SERIOUSLY*


**Gmbr hiasan. :P**
We were too busy eating, couldn't stop for a picture. XD

(I still drool everytime I think about it.)



The menu:

Nasi putih (White Rice)

Ikan goreng (Fried fish)

Ikan masak kari (Curry Fish)

Ulam2 (Vege?)

Traditional Chips.

Sambal belacan (Belacan Paste)

Budu + Tempoyak

and

Fresh Guava for desert.


...

It was simple. But it tasted like home cooked meal. :)


We were told that The visitors mainly came from Singapore, Korea, Belanda, and all around Malaysia.




.........






We went to Dataran Shah Bandar again but this time,


we specifically went to The most Famous Pasar Payang. (Payang Market)



There are thousands of stuff there.

You can find Batik, Souvenirs, Food, Books, etc...

I didn't buy anything though.

The place is full with just about everything.

So stuffy, with narrow pathway.

Makes me dizzy just browsing through.

There are cheap items around, you just have to find it in the right places.

That is, if you don't get lost. :P

........

I guess, that's it for now.


I'll share with you our trip to Lake Kenyir soon!



Take care Bebeh!! XD

This.Is.Me

You know when sometimes you just feel like being yourself,
but there's someone who just don't seem to agree with the idea of that..
They don't put it into words but you can just feel it since, 
'action speaks louder than words'.
Deep in your heart, you wish you could say "fcuk off!" in their face.
But you're too polite and too poised. You know what's right and wrong.
You know that you're much better than that. 

As always, I wrote a poem that maybe, many of us can relate.
Hope that we can find strength within ourself to stand for what we believe in,
without worrying about what people might think or say.
After all, they don't live the life we have. WE DO...

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Title: This.is.me


 

 

 

 

Accept me for who I am.

For I would not ask more from you.

This is me.

You might not see me through.

Not if I don't want you to.

 

Judge me not.

For Judging is GOD's work.

HE made me this way..

The special person that I am.

 

I'm strong with many weaknesses..

I'm  Blessed with many things in life.

But cursed with many imperfections.

I'm unique in my own way.

 

I'm not asking the world to understand me.

All I ask is for the world to allow me in it's existence.

For I exist among all things living and breathing.

 

 

So, accept me for who I am.

For I would not ask more from you.

Stone Soup

Disclaimer:

Enuff said!

.................................SO THE.STORY BEGIN................................

.

.

.

Beep… Beep... Beep… The life support machine keeps on singing monotonous tune to entertain anyone who enters the room. The wall is bare and cold. There he lay, on the bed. Alone… Unmoved by the chaos of his surrounding. Unperturbed by all hustle and bustle of white collar doctors and nurses.


Annie screamed inside. She yearns for a smile on that face. His jokes always make her day. It was three years ago that faith brought them together. It was a youth camp where he was one of the facilitator.


“Tonight, we will be sleeping in tents. I want all scouts to put up their tents and get comfortable. Because tonight is ‘not… like the usual night’!” he smiled. Annie could have sworn she heard he dragged his last words for a reason. Like he’s hinting something…


As he walked across the girl scouts, he stopped for a while and said “Oh, I forgot to tell you guys that dinner is waiting in cans and you may need to light up fire on your own. Don’t worry, we will give you a box of matches to make life easier” he smirked. His eyes were filled with something mischievous but Annie just couldn’t figure it out.


It was an exhausting day for all of them. 4 hours journey into the camping site and they had to walk deep into the jungle to find a flat land to camp up. It’s Annie and her friends’ first experience with nature. If it wasn’t compulsory, they would rather have pajama party at Annie’s house or make a prank calls on their friends.


“Here” He said… “Use it wisely or the night will be Looooong for you guys” He chuckled. Annie took the match box. “Thanks a lot” she replied. 

“It’s not 'a lot' but, you’re welcome!” His mischievous smile never left his face and the he sang ‘No woman no cry’ and disappeared from her sight.


It was almost dark; they managed to put up the tent though they struggled at the beginning. Everyone was exhausted and hungry. Now they have to cook the canned food. Annie reached for the match box and to her surprise; there were only 4 sticks of matches! The girls’ mouth gapped open. Tired and hungry, the girls gathered woods and tried to light a fire.


They did just like what they saw on TV. It all seemed almost too easy in theory. They lit up the first match and burn the dried leaves and smokes started to gather… Happy, they started blowing on it and the leaves was engulf in fire. They put more dry woods and they have a good fire for the whole night. “Not bad for a first timer huh?” Annie said. They all laughed in delight.


While the other scouts were still struggling, the girls opened up the canned food. It was red beans, a mushroom soup, and small sardines. “How are we going to survive on these?” one of the girls asked. There was a moment of silence and the girls were looking at each other. “Well, it’s better than nothing…” Annie broke the silence.


Minutes later, food is almost ready and it’s time to boil the soup. While Annie was stirring the soup, “Pluck!” a stone fall from nowhere and into the soup! Annie was shocked! The hot soup could’ve splashed on her face! “Ops! My bad! Sorry about your soup. I was trying my gun-slinging skills” He laughed. “Enjoy your dinner though!” and he took off! Other groups tried to conceal their laugh.


After dinner, all scouts gathered for the next activity. “I guess you guys are all excited because tonight we will start our camp activity. We will have a bonfire tonight. Hans will explain more about it. “ The main instructor said. “So that’s his name!” Annie muttered alone, still in rage. “Hello again people, so for tonight’s activity, each group will come up with a motto and a theme song for their group. We will have an ice breaking session and you guys will be entertaining us.” He chuckled.


Their eyes were locked for a moment. “And….” He continued “I hope you guys had your lovely dinner and for those who haven’t, don’t worry; we will give out breads and chocolates to aid your stomach” he grinned, then continued “and maybe you can have a ‘Stone Soup’ courtesy of the girls’ group here” hinting Annie and the girls. There was a loud cheer from the crowd and others were amused.


Beep…! Beep…! Beep…! Beep…! All machinery went havoc! Annie was stunned for a while. “Help!” she almost didn’t hear herself. “Help!” even louder now. The nurses rushed in then the doctor came. Annie was told to wait outside. Helpless and alone. She tried to gather all strength she can muster, but the thin wall of her eyes just couldn’t keep up with her heavy flowing tears. “What have I done?”…


A week after the youth camp, Annie got a call. “Hey you! How’s life?” Annie was confused but she replied none the less “Fine, I guess. May I know whose calling?” There was a chuckle at the other line. “I’m just calling to check up on you and… to apologize about the Stone Soup” chuckled again. “Oh, Hans is it?” “Whoa! U remembered my name; you must’ve had a crush on me or something!” He burst out laughing. “What…..” Annie was perplexed.


“I know, I know. Hey, how about Lunch? It’s on me. I really feel bad that you were still angry at me during the last day of camp. Pizza near Papa John’s, Palm Street? Say around…one?? Great! I’ll wait for you there! Bye!” Click! The phone ended. Still baffled, Annie was speechless. She almost ignored his invitation if it wasn’t for her guilty conscience. Plus, Pizza near Papa John’s is not too far away from her place. “Heck! Why not”…


More nurses went in and out with bloody bandages and the smell reeked out of the room. Annie wanted to help but she knew that there’s nothing that she could possibly do. “It’s my fault! Damn it!” She punched the wall and she almost didn’t feel anything at that moment. She was engulfed in guilt and remorse. She repented her decision. She sensed that something might go wrong but still she went with the plan. Deep inside, she is shrieking! She’s too afraid to lose him. “Please God, just save him.”


Lunch with him that day was a great day to remember. They had a great time quarreling over the menu, reminiscing about the youth camp, and they shared stories of their lives. Soon, there were more days like that where they could just hang out and have fun together. It was a year after that that he proposed to her. Annie was delighted but her studies came first. So they decided to just continue dating.


The day of Annie’s convocation, he proposed again. This time, Annie just doesn’t have the heart to say no to him for the second time. They were going to break the news to their family and make it official.

“It’s going to be a HUGE news!” he smiled. Almost pleased with himself.

“But, are you sure you want to tell your family now? You can just call them you know”

He laughed. Delighted it seems. “My mom would kill me if I don’t break the news to her personally!”

He added “It’s just an hour ride to my hometown. Come on stone soup girl! You’re not having cold feet are you?” He laughed again.

“But it’s almost nine…. I don’t...” 

“No more excuses ok. Let’s just surprise them with this happy news!” he smiled.

“You are loosing your mind. You are crazy” Annie chuckled.

“Yes I am!” He declared. “I am Crazy!” He smiled. “I’m Crazy over you!” Annie was flushed.


30 minutes past them by. Its quarter past ten now. The radio entertained both nervous hearts. “Hey… my favourite song!” He put the volume up and sang along; making cute funny faces. Annie was amused. He continued on…

“As it was, log would burn on through the night.

Then we would cook ‘Stone Soup’

Of which I'll share with you.

My feet is my only carriage.

So I've got to push on thru

Oh, while I'm gone…

 

BAMMM! An SUV ram on to them from the driver’s side! Everything went blurry. Annie could feel Hans’ body hugging her tight, almost protecting her. She could feel a hot liquid on her palm then everything went blank. The song continues…

 

“Everything’s gonna be alright, everything’s gonna be alright.

Everything’s gonna be alright, everything’s gonna be alright.

So no woman no cry, no, no woman no cry…”

 

Annie woke up in the hospital bed, unharmed. Frantically she asked for him to the nurses and they showed her. He was plugged into the life support machine. She’s been unconscious for 2 hours the nurse explained. “The doctor fears that you might have a concussion…” Annie just couldn’t focus on the voice. It disappeared into the background. There he lay; his face is bruised. Almost fully covered with bandages. Still breathing…


That is all that she can remember after the accident. Annie has been waiting for almost half an hour now. She kept on praying for him. Still hoping that everything’s going to be alright. That she can still hear his voice just once more. Hear his jokes and witness the shine in his eyes. She’s counting on the minutes and flashbacks of their memories just hit her hard. With each memory, she suffers more. “God, please save him…” she’s shaking now. She can heart her heart breaking apart.


The nurses pushed through the door, carrying with them all the equipments. Annie’s becoming almost frantic now. Then the doctor came up to her… Her heart skipped few beats… She ran inside and slowly reached him. There was a smile in his face. Annie was in disbelief. She’s crushed. The doctor’s words rang in her ears. “He’s gone. I’m so sorry. I am very sorry…”
