Landing there soon.

Salam and hye everyone.
I can see those long faces you're pulling and I am so sorry for not updating you readers with any posts in the last two months. I was busy with assignments and etc. But I will try to make it up with you guys by posting more often from now on (hopefully!). Well as some of you might be aware of, my two years of studying in New Zealand is about to end, which means I have to go back in no time to pursue my final year in Malaysia. So you could guess how heartbroken I am feeling to leave such a wonderful country behind. Not to pry or whatever, but deep down I am very thankful for God, my family, KPM and all Malaysians for giving me this opportunity. If it up for me, I would proudly say that teaching is not what I am going to do for life, but given this opportunity, I know that I have the responsibility to give back and serve our Malaysian children with all the knowledge I gained here as best as I could. May God bless us all. Yesterday, 07 October 2011, was our Eidul- Adha in Auckland. Sadly, I was so sleepy that I didn't join the prayer, which was held at Aetoa Square! My parents called and I've got to talk to almost everybody who were actually gathered at my uncle's for my cousin's engagement - Congrats Kak Dila! Then, the day got better when my friend's employer who happened to be a Muslim, gave us some 'daging korban'. Unfortunately, I'm not really a meat person. So the whole stock goes to my housemates. Yay!! As always, my writing is not organised. But who cares. I'm not a celebrity or whoever famous. Another concern of mine is that we haven't got our allowance yet. And for this reason, I'm afraid that my mates and I might be kick out from our apartment any time. Okay, that 'kicking' part may be an exaggeration, but the allowance part is a fact. As how much I am grateful with the scholarship department, I am still hoping that they would do better job than making us feel money-less over here. As for now, I pray that they can provide us with the flight details as soon as possible so that I can start booking flight ticket home. That's all for now. Goodnight, lovelings!

Celebrations.

Hey folks! There are celebrations going on today (31 August 2011).
1. Malaysia's 54th National Day
2. First day of Eid-Fitr in New Zealand (second day in Malaysia)
3. My Birthday!!!!!!!!!!!! Yes it is my 22 birthday.

Well. this year's birthday reminds me of how old I am and how far I've grown in life. It was saddening that I am not celebrating any of these celebrations at home with my beloved family. However, I had the whole school singing 'Happy Birthday' to me. The whole Year 5 and 6 were non-stop wishing me Happy Birthday, I was given a Principal Birthday Certificate and better still, the whole staff room sang me Happy Birthday as well. How awesome was that!!! I would say that today's Epic moment of my life in 2011!!!!! Loving it and will treasure it till death for sure :)

Later that day, my mum called and we talked and I said, "Thanks Mum for giving birth to me". Really I am grateful for having her as my mum. She's the best!!

Raya this year was not as fun as it used to be. But we were celebrating it our way. All six of us brought our own dishes (biscuits and etc.) to school and threw the school's stuff with a little feast!

And yes,I can't thank God enough for giving me the opportunity to work with such a nice school!! The environment is awesome! The teachers are lovely and so do the students. I really wish that I could be one of the students studying there. But, deep down my heart, I would always be happy for having school at my previous schools.

Awww...I am pretty much aware that my writing this time around is a little bit unorganized. Initially, I wanted to write about the celebrations and yet I also wrote some about my experience at this New Zealand Primary School I am going for two weeks. Well, it supposed to be our holiday, but since the schools are not having their holidays yet and we have to have our practicum before we left the country for good, we have no other choice but to sacrifice our holidays for a priceless experience. Ole!!!

Before I ended my writing with Mr. Period, I would love to say trillions of thanks to those who wished my birthday today. Hope you all will be blessed in life here and after. Amin!

S.O.R.R.Y

I know very well that before I started with anything else, I should first apologize for not writing anything for a while now. Actually, I did write but it was either in my Tumblr or Facebook account. So, it is always a wise decision to follow these account as well :) Anyway, we are in the 17th of Ramadhan already. Feel like we just started fasting yesterday, right? Anyway, regarding fasting, I would love to congratulate my Norwegian friend (LARS) for his determination to try fasting for the whole month. Hopefully he will be blessed and live a happy life during and after Ramdahan. It is good to know and witness how non-Muslims trying to understand our belief and yet we refused to see it for ourselves. Ironic right? With 17 days over, there are 13 remaining more days before all Muslims will be celebrating Eid-Fitr. Frankly speaking, this year will be my second year celebrating it without my family. It would be saddening yet that is the sacrifice that I should be able to withstand. The celebration itself won't be as extravagant considering the it will be during my practicum sessions in New Zealand primary schools. Still, that should not be the excuse for me not to celebrate it right!

and yes, if you guys are well informed before, Auckland has never being snowing after the first fall on 1939. Surprisingly, miracle happened on last 15 of August - it was actually SNOWING in AUCKLAND CBD!!!! You can check the video which I posted on my Youtube channel (xchips99) as well as my Facebook page.

Well, that's all for now. I have to start revising for there tests which I will be having next Tuesday and Wednesday. Guess it will be hell of a week. Anyway, wich me luck and take care peeps!

New state


I reckon, you readers are all aware that South Sudan is the latest state on earth right? They've got their independence yesterday (9th July 2011). Unlike, Malaysia, we have are just two months away for our 54th. Does that makes us a little more wiser and independent? No comment. Anyway, speaking of new states, I wonder how many countries that we currently have out there? Perhaps 194? 195? or 196? It depends. Some might consider looking at the registered United Nations members or US Department of States. To further understand the previous remark, do read the following link:

Hope you'll get your geography, right!
