166: Our Love Story

You said you love him.

What if anyone asks you..

"So, Mai.. tell me about your love story"

Will you able to curl a smile and tell that person without hesitation "Oh yeah, it's the sweetest thing, it starts when..."

Will you be able to? honestly...?

and with "Happily ever after!" at the end...

Can you say you're in love with someone but you don't have any story to tell??


I love Rasulullah...

honestly, Mai?

So, what's your love story?

165: Nikmat dunia

Lord of the fries..
Fries with Belgian & Italian Sauces, and regular vege burger (with mock meat!)
Sangat sedap fries with the sauces itu... definitely am gonna miss this if i were to go back..

Alak nak makan kek, so I brought her to this cafe. Sahara...
Lemon meringue and Mars cake ..
cappucino and chai latte (heheh nyesal order chai ye alak?)

Our shopping place.. ALDI.. murah2 barangnye, sesuai utk budget student
Banyak juga barang yg 'suitable for vegetarian' so takyah susah2 cek all the emulsifier codes etc2.

Random shot.. di umah adik...

Huhu.. banyaknye nikmat dunia yg Allah izinkan kita semua rasainya..
And.. without questions I am willing to give all these up if it means I can go back and meet my family now and now...

Itu harga cinta..

And... it makes me think..

"in kuntum tuhibbunnallah fattabi'uni..."

Kalau benar kita cintakan perjuangan ini... segala apa yg perlu kita korbankan takkan kita sesalkan...

Benarlah kata seorang ustaz tu... "Hanya sesukar inikah harga syurga-Mu?"

Masih jauh harusku pergi..
Masih lama harusku renung..
Masih banyak harusku lawankan..
dalam diri ini...


When I pass I don’t want to leave a life of regret
So I give rise to change today by trying not to forget
That pleasures do pass and sunrises end and stars do fade away
But it’s love and it’s virtue and honor and truth that remain for all days


I want that final breath to be the sweetest of all
And it will be with certainty if I answer the call
To help all those in need and decipher the meaning of life
Cause the seekers of truth they fear not death any more than they fear life


Tetiber hari ni teringat lyrics Kareem Salama ni..
I often need reminders...

Satria ESQ, go go go! Satria ESQ, fight fight fight! Satria ESQ, win win win!!!

heh, taksal....

163: The return of Modulus

Oh Allah forgive me... inni zholamtu nafsi..

I need to submit the reviews for 10 papers tomorrow.... but I have done none. NONE. I was/am struggling to make sense of the articles... dah baca bape round still tak make sense.. macammana nak summarize??

Then my mind is preoccupied by unnecessary stuff. Oh Allah help me get rid of all these thoughts. At least for now. Tak payah risau bende2 yg tak pasti tu dik oi~ It's distracting! sangat...

And I've wasted yesterday since I was down with fever and couldn't get anything done... tula, procrastinate lagi!!

Oh Allah forgive me... aku menzalimi diriku sendiri... :((


Huhu nanges baca ayat ni.. Oh Allah.. thank you... :'(

Okay positive!!!!

Boleh siap esok dgn jayanya insyaAllah!!!

Feel like calling my dear mama but she's in Makassar right now.


Everyone lives. Everyone works hard for something. Everyone feels tired. Everyone feels pain. Everyone hurts. Everyone feels joy. Everyone wants happiness. Everyone has dreams. Everyone races against something. Everyone lives. And everyone dies...

".. wa fizalika fal yatanafasil mutanafisun.."

Just make sure your fight is worthwhile. Remember the eternal abode. Not the transient rest you feel after achieving what you thought was your dream....

Am I making any sense here?


2 assignments to be submitted tomorrow. Another one this Friday. SEM procedure needs to done ASAP as well..

Ya Allah, beri aku ilham...

161: Manual

Dia kata "Yes, you can ask people and get the answer.. but how can you be sure he has the right answer? always refer to the manual! The manufacturer knows better." So true isn't it? Of course he's refering to the handling of the machine in the Colloid lab. But...

159: Honours?

That's building 14.. School of Applied Physics

Works are piling up without me realizing it. That's why I repeatedly said that Honours year is not for me. No timetable, no schedule, you have to have such self-discipline to make sure you're on top of everything. Lagi-lagi di RMIT yg agak lay back berbanding Monash n Melbourne Uni...

Paper review in 2 weeks time. 10 papers need to be reviewed. I am so blurred by all these. Am not sure how am I supposed to do it. No proper guidelines. Ended up bothering the supervisor all the time.

I have one week to do as much MATLAB as possible. Visualization of 5 different instances related to Electrodynamics.. visualisation count: 0.8 (boley tak? because for the first one, it looks alright except the fact that i can't get the animation to work)

For my project, I need to redo the Dynamic Light Scattering procedure which takes hours because I forgot to edit the viscosity of the sample the first time round. One silly mistake and need to redo everything all over again sigh. Then I need to do some measurement using the Scanning Electron Microscope. Am so excited like a kid! Last week I had this training session and I was so jakun I printed so many micrographs of different parts of my sample... trainer tu macam.. "er.. okay2 you can do that no problem at all". Hey tak perlu kot..

The facility situated at level 7 and its a newly renovated part of applied physics building.. sangat lawa and sophisticated with many rooms with glass wall .. and only certain authorised people je can access and I know many people are authorised tapi bila the scanner detected my own swipe card with 2 beeps (kalau 5 beeps maknenye tak authorised).. oh my what joy.. jakun habes... then masuk dengan bangganya.

I feel so matang when I can discuss with my supervisor and his collegues.."i did this measurement and it turns out that bla bla bla... because of bla bla bla... and I think it's due to bla bla bla..." ..and they actually listen and agree or disagree and giving their thought as well.... I'm no longer an undergrad student who only nods and takes in whatever the lecturer has to say... I am a researcher! a real physicist.. wah. (perasan.. its good for the confidence :p )

Okay, selesai sudah banjiran huruf berkaitan honours :)

Lama tak cerita banyak kat sini...
