The bittersweet day

      Today is a very tiring day for me both physically and emotionally. Yes, UNGS short semester is now completed and I am thankful for that. But the process of removing things to the new room in the next mahallah was a very tiring experience!!! Who am I to complain though, at least we don't have to carry that much of a load on 2nd September (yeaaayy).
      I feel like I have been riding a roller coaster of emotions today. I started my day with the anxiety of not being able to answer well, the gratitude upon finding out the questions are not that hard, gratitude coz I don't have to wait till 2pm to start the evacuation process, the gratitude for yummy foods haf's mom made, and then the roller coaster started going downhill. The bas moved like a tortoise on the Pantai Timur highway. It took us 2 hours to reach Temerloh RnR. YESS!!! THAT SLOW!
I honestly couldn't sleep on the bus thinking about how am I going to make it to airport on time.
      At 7.30 we reached Hentian Pekeliling and I screwed up, wasting my precious 5 minutes going to LRT line instead of the monorail :(( and then after an excruciating 28 minutes I rushed my way to NU sentral trying to find my way to KL Central. Guess what? Yes , I couldn't find the stairs that connect the shopping mall to the transportation hub. I must have had panic attack because I know the place by heart, the fact that I have to ask someone to show the way makes me even more irritated at myself. I am not a person who runs that much but I did. Yes, with my purple luggage and a laptop bag. I bought the ERL ticket and run again hoping to catch the train. Unfortunately, the luck is not on my side tonight. By the time I reached the groundfloor, the train has already left and I could still see it's silhouette. I had to wait for another 17 minutes :(
        I tried to calm myself down by texting my friends and even calling one when I boarded the train 17 minutes later. By the time I board the train, it was 8.32pm. I need someone to reassure me that I am going to make it to KLIA2 on time and thanks to my friend Nadhirah she managed to calm me. I was calm and composed for the first time since the afternoon. I tied my shoelaces tightly because I am determined to run and not waste any minute. By this time, I was running while yelling sorry sorry. Hell, I must've looked like an idiot. What makes matters worse, is that halfway through the escalator this guy just won't move!!! I was behind him saying excuse me I need to hurry blablabla and he smirked. HE FKIN SMIRKED!!! UGH so I had to stay behind him. Sobs sobs and then hah I'm tired even typing this makes me feel drained. So, let's cut the chase ; the boarding gate was closed for 2 minutes. I was late for 2 minutes!!!!! And the stewardess was a very polite woman, she said she's sorry but there's nothing she could do because even if she prints the boarding pass for me , they won't let me in.
        The rest is something that I refuse to share. However, because of this incident I learned that my bank islam debit card can be used to buy tickets online!!!! Despite how unlucky I just described myself, I found a quite cheap ticket on Malindo air at 7am tomorrow. It was priced at 169 including all taxes. The thought of sleeping makes me nauseous, I am terrified and scarred for life (ok over but honestly that's what i feel). Looks like He still spare me some happiness in this dark hour eyy :) and I am forever grateful to my parents for being understanding. I know it's not easy for them to let this cengeng daughter sleep at airport's surau! Oh and I met this kind stranger who also missed the same flight. She's the one who told me that malindo air have the lowest tickets price for now. Thank you akak!
       This is a lesson for me, because I am being selfish. I don't wanna stay anoter day at UIA kuantan because all I think about was coming home. So I gambled with time, and planned my timing which has gone wrong and ended up with me being stranded on this airport!! Hahaha. As my daddy put it, there's always a first time for everything amd "relaxla bila, bukan kau satu orang ja pernah terlepas flight". That's his way of saying don't feel like a jerk (which I still feel like one now) haha goodnight and thank you for reading this rant. Much ♥

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…

Two different world ;

"When your parents got married where were you, Nabilah?"
The 4 year old me without hesitation answered
"I was in front of the pelamin, watching. Didn't you notice I was there?".

Of course my answer did not make any sense. The adults love asking me that question over and over again. Younger me noticed that they love my quirky responses so I change the answer every now and then. Sometimes I would say I was handing the bunga telur, on some days I would say I was the flowergirl. The adults (mostly my mom's colleagues) would compliment me saying I'm smart. The younger me basked in compliments and doesn't even try hiding it.
I suck at a lot of things, especially writing intros so I hope that was interesting enough for you to not close this tab 😂.

I recently read Men are from Mars and Women are from Venus. I noticed that a lot of issues discussed in the book rings true in my parents' situation. Women and men are di…

Exponential growth;

Turning 18 and 21 is often used as the marker of adulthood. Having gone through both 18 and 21, I don't feel like I am becoming more of an adult. In fact as each year pass by, I feel like I stopped growing altogether and that each year is passing by without me making any significant changes.

Adulthood is a social construct but transition is expected as we age. With adulthood, the question of maturity comes along. It honestly bothers me so much. Am I mature enough for my age? Does my behaviour reflect my age? Am I choosing the appropriate outfit or does this adds up 10 years to my real age? Mature itself is very subjective as more often than not, we know someone who is younger but very mature in making decision etc. There are no specific measure to determine one's maturity. Writing this made me realize that maybe I am glorifying the idea of adulthood.

Physical development might have stopped for some of us but the psychological and intellectual …
