Money talk and how I started saving

Hey everyone (perasan ada reader ),
 Since I am under caffeine, I've figured that I might not sleep the whole night so I decided to write something. Caffeine has a strong effect on me. My preference of coffee is either Nescafe or Starbucks. I tried coffee from The Coffee Bean once,it was a horrendous experience for me. My head felt like it would explode from the dizziness right after drinking a few sips. Any caffeinated drinks even tea could keep me awake at night. Low-caffeine-tolerance 

                                                              My savings so far for 2015

 One of my new year resolution is to save up money. I am a highly-ambitious person unfortunately everything I planned rarely gets executed. Somehow, I always found a reason to dismiss the "ambitious" thought. But 2015 is different, I promised myself this would be my year, Insha Allah.

Responsibility is a huge word and hold and even bigger meaning to me. As much as I would love to spend money on things that I barely need, a deeper part in myself despise this bad habit. I have to be responsible over my finance. Someone dear to me once said that youth should not be wasted doing silly things. Yes, you would have something great to tell your grandchildren for being "cool" but do you actually want them to repeat all the ridiculous  things you've done? Of course,the answer is no. Youth should be spent wisely by doing things that you will not regret once you get older. I am teaching myself to be responsible by saving money in hope that by nurturing this good habit it would grow into something beneficial.
     
        I was on Google to find out a few Biology terms that I don't understand when I came across an article about how to save money for dummies. The article piqued my interest so I clicked the link and read the whole article. The article literally is a lifesaver as I was trying to figure out ways so I could start my holy intention lol. It gave me the idea to save RM5 notes. I didn't do it willingly at first, but it eventually became a habit. Fake it until you make it, there's some truth in that. It feels weird when I first started keeping all the RM5 notes but as time goes by now it feels weird if I'm on my cheat day and use the RM5 notes. Yes, I have this cheat day thingy because sometimes , the kiosk do not have enough change so I have to use the RM5 notes to pay for something. That is one of the most annoying moments because in my opinion, when you're doing business you should prepare enough change. Surely you don't expect customers to run around places to get the change ready for you,right?
   
       Anyway, I hope you guys (if there's any human being reading this) try to save some money. We live in an era where RM50 wouldn't last for long. RM50 only lasts for 4 days or 5 if I am being strict on spending approximately RM10 per day for foods and drinks. Times like this makes me feel like being a high school kid again, just so I could eat free foods 5 times per day for free eventhough the amount of oil and salt is quite generous. I still need to study informations for tomorrow's discussion of Log B and fold my laundry ugh, till then goodnight and Assalamualaikum.

In place of what is lost, something new emerges ;

It's been quite a while since I last wrote anything here. Maybe that's just a thing with me, I aways stop halfway. Ok so when I first sign up for this blog, I promised myself to not let negativity and the stressed part of me affect my post. But it did anyway because who am I kidding how can I stop myself from doing something that I do on a daily basis ? So a depressing, melancholic, sad,cheesy post this is going to be. You have been warned.

Alhamdulillah I am now in year 2 medic school and all praise to lord for giving me the joy of passing all 4 blocks in the first year. It wasn't a good academic year for me especially during the block 1.

Block 1 highlight:

1.My procrastinating habit is taking its toll on me. I was overwhelmed by the amount of new things that we have to study (and keep in our mind for the rest of our life)

2.I realised I'm a slow learner which means I need extra time to understand a concept. And in medicine, time is never on our side.

3. I …

Tasik Biru Ibam daytrip

Today my friends and I went to Bandar Muadzam Shah a town located about 100km from Kuantan. Awa came up with the idea on a mundane Monday morning while we were both beaten up by the freezing lecture hall and the Monday blues. We planned on visiting the so called "New Zealand" which gained its name due to the greenish scenery and the Tasik Biru Ibam. We're not really adventurous so knowing that it doesn't require much effort to reach the blue lake, is a huge relief (well at least for me).


The drive to Bandar Muadzam Shah took us around two and a half hour. Traffic was clear but the road itself is not in the best condition. From Bandar Muadzam Shah I think we drove for another 15 minutes before reaching Bukit Ibam, the exact location of Tasik Biru or the blue lake.The Blue Lake is actually an old mining site. It is said that the aesthetically pleasing blue colour is a result of copper sulphate sedimentation. No one knows the real depth or what makes the lake e…

Reality

"I am so scared of losing people that matters to me. As much as I understand that everyone will eventually leave this world, I couldn't bear the thoughts of not being able to see someone ever again. Because I am selfish and losing someone forever scares me so much.
My grandma (inak) has been admitted to the hospital yesterday. She complained that her body is aching. The doctor said there is electrolyte imbalance in her body. A sign of renal failure as it can no longer regulate the electrolyte. Her ECG showed myocardial infarction, she is dependent on oxygen mask now. Her blood pressure is fluctuating but is on the low side. It seems like her health is deteriorating even further compared to this morning.

Being away from home, I couldn't do anything but pray. Prayer transcends the distance, prayer is the only thing that helps to put my mind at ease. I couldn't concentrate on what I was studying. My first reaction when my dad sent pictures of …
