I spy... An eye stye... >.<

Huhuhu... I woke up this morning feeling a bit weird on my left eye...

Well, there's not a really big difference, like people would probably have to look at me twice to realize the swelling but it's still really annoying.
What to do??!!!
"Medically referred to as a hordeolum, a stye is simply an infection occurring on the eyelid. Sties are caused by the staphylococcal bacteria that normally live harmlessly on the skin of our eyelids, but when those germs become trapped inside an eyelash follicle or a tear duct, a painful, pimple-like infection results."

Hopefully it'll go away fast!

Happy New Year!

Towards the end...

Flight D72703 will be landing at KL LCC Terminal on the 7th January 2010 at 1525 hrs.
I'm going to be in that flight. =) InsyaAllah (with God's willing)...

I'm excited to go home, yet starting to feel sad to the thought of leaving my room, my study table, my office-like study chair, my ensuite, my pillows and definitely, the most important thing, my double bed.. Hehehe.. Drama, drama! Heh...

I need to put everything here on hold for a while now and concentrate on a more important part of my life. I honestly don't know if I can stop thinking about my research when I'm home later on. I can be a bit obsessed about my work. I even used to dream of my lab experiments. Huhuhu... Oh well, we'll see how it'll go.

The year is coming to an end and I guess I could say this would be my last year of being a single lady. Huhuhu... How weird does that sound??!!!
The idea of bachelorette parties suddenly occured to me.
I never really attended bachelorette parties or hen nights. I know it's to celebrate the bride-to-be. I don't think it's a widely practice tradition for Malays. But I do know some of my friends back home have them and of course it's a common thing for people of most parts of the world.
This is what the Wikipedia said;
"A bachelorette party, hen party, hen do, or hen night, is a party held for a woman who is about to be married The term hen party or hen night is more common in the UK, Ireland and Australia, while the term bachelorette party is more common in the United States. The term stagette is used in Canada. It may also be referred to as a girls' night out or kitchen tea (South Africa in particular) or other terms in other English-speaking countries.
The bachelorette party is modeled after the centuries-old Bachelor party which is itself historically a dinner given by the Bridegroom to his friends shortly before his wedding. Despite its reputation as "a sodden farewell to bachelor days" or "an evening of debauchery," a bachelorette's party is a normal party, given in honor of the bride-to-be, in the style that is common to that social circle."

I suppose I could say that I was celebrated as a bride-to-be recently. It was a very very small get-together and probably not fully intentionally done for me (Perasan lebih!!!Hehe...), for me at least, it was fun! Great company, good food and an 15+ French movie (Haha!!); I couldn't have asked for more! =)
The great food!!! (It's always great food at their place..Heh..)

The entourage... Hehehe... (Going to miss all of you!!! Huhuhu...)

Anyways, any chance I'll be getting one back home?! *Hint Hint*
Hahaha! Dream on, Wa!

Ho! Ho! Ho!

It’s Christmas! Such a joyous and happy day! Actually, I am kinda stranded in a train station. Huhuhu.. It’s 7:45 am and the train was delayed for an hour. It should’ve arrived here in Landsborough at 7:13 am but there has been an inconvenience. There are about 12 of us waiting for the train. Are they not celebrating Christmas? Hhmmm... Geeshh.. It’s raining!!! Cooling but I’ll have to make a run for it to get back to the station later. I’m not that far away. Just across the street.

See, there’s Landsborough train station. =)

Oh yeah... I got a xmas present!!! It’s rather the one and only present this year. Heh... I didn’t really expect it but THANKS SO MUCH, Denni!!! Loooove it! =)

I was itching all day yesterday to open it. Feels like a little kid!!! Hahaha!!!

It was sitting on my bedside table all night and I opened it right after my prayers this morning. Heeee...

They were chocolates!!!! Lindt lindor chocs!!! YUMMY!!! I wonder why I didn’t take a picture of it. Hhmmm.. Anyways, now I need to control myself from finishing them in one sit! Hehehe... Oooppss... There’s an announcement from the trains station. Better get back there. Hope the train’s coming soon! ;-)

Wishing everyone a merry Christmas and happy holidays!!! Enjoy!

☺..behind the wheel..☺

Just got back from sending Denni & Bec to their staffs' Christmas party.
Yeah, I drove the car!!! Heee...
It was not the first time that I've driven in Oz but I don't drive very often here.
I forgot how therapeutic driving can sometimes be.
It was a really nice drive from Mooloolaba back to Unicentral.
Well, I drove to and back.
Denni wanted me to drive to Mooloolaba so that I would know the way better.
Eventhough it's been almost a year here, I'm still not that confident of the roads.
I remember some of the buses route though.
I do get scared to the thought of driving in Oz.
It's like when I first started to drive kinda feeling.
Sweating, butterflies in the stomach...
I wonder why...
Maybe I just need to get used to it, huh??
Have to get a car first!
Oh well, I am feeling more and more confident.
Maybe when the time is right (and the money is there! Huhuhu...), I'll get a car.
Until then, buses and trains for me!
And yeah, the wonderful walks!


My set of wheels back home.... Miss you JFK!!! (Huhuhu.. the only picture I have...)

11.30pm in Sunny Coast, 9.30pm in Parit Raja...

Text messages...

I syg : "Sayaaaanngggg"
Wa : "Ye yg..u ok?"
I syg : "Ok jer..sajer je huhuhuhu"
Wa : "Hehe..u dah mkn?watpe 2 syg?"
I syg : "Lom... Tgk tv jerrr...u watpee jer?"
Wa : "I dah tdo ni..ingt nk tlg examine our things.yg still ok nk keep on gune.. Misz u so much!"
I syg : "Our things?"
Wa : "Haha!i ngarut..i mixed up dgn mimpi td..hehe...sori!mesti u penat lyn i yg half asleep?huhuhu.."


I syg : "Waaaaaaaaaaaaa"
Wa : "Yes..are you ok?"
I syg : "I'm ok..just messing around...huhuhuhu"
Wa : "Hehe..have you eaten?what are you doing?"
I syg : "Not yet... I'm just watching TV... What are you doing?"
Wa : "I'm already asleep. I was thinking I'm going to examine our things. To keep using those that are still OK. Miss you so much!"
I syg : "Our things?"
Wa : "Haha! What did I say? I must still be dreaming!"

PS: some words were changed to make it easier to understand. heee... =)

Huhuhu... Yes, i pick up the phone and talk, and reply text messages when I'm half asleep or even when I'm asleep. I think...coz sometimes, I don't even remember that I answered the phone or what I actually said! I usually wake up the next morning wondering was I dreaming or was it real. Call logs helped a lot and yeah, inbox and sent items usually puts the puzzle together. Huhuhu...

Anyways, the above is an example of how I actually woke up in the middle of the text messaging. Hahaha! The silliest so far!

It's Not Goodbye... It's See You Later...

It's Saturday morning, Denni's at work and I'm all alone in this already empty place. *Sigh* I will be going to the lab to carry out some work in a bit. After a long weekend in Brissy last week, I know I have to focus and get my act together. I have less than 34 days till I go home for the wedding preparation. I know I wouldn't be able to forget my work and research altogether when I'm back home then but it'll definitely not going to be easy to study as it is at the moment. The only thing here and now in this oh so laid back environment is the pressure to chill, watch a movie or go to the beach! Haha! Anything to procrastinate!

Weird how I feel like it's ages ago but really it's not even a week since we sent off Ellie and Nicole in front of the Unicentral main gate; keeping them company while waiting for the airport shuttle ad help them carry their 'few, tiny' luggages on the shuttle. Heh... The surprising part was, Ellie didn't even shed a tear! She kept telling me that she'll be bawling her hearts out when we send her off. A good thing she didn't though coz knowing how a cry baby I could be, she'd probably won't be the only one drenched in tears. Haha! I was however a bit teary and I did cried for a bit reading her note while I hold on to my Crunchie Bar... Huhuhu...

Unicentral is so so quiet now. Too quiet for my liking sometimes. Even the campus is sort off deserted. Luckily, I'm always totally absorbed in my work and don't really mind being alone in the lab. Huhuhu... And I guess now I am better in shrugging of the sadness and missing everyone who has been making me smile, laugh and teaching me so many things (probaly too much!!!) for the past 5-6 months particularly here in Unicentral. They will always be in my heart and hope to be in touch. I know everyone is just really gald to be back in their own hometown and back to their family and friends; I'm really happy for them. I do hope the acquaintances and friendships I've made and built over the short period of time would be remembered in a good way, at least...

I remember Denni said how being in Unicentral sucks coz you get to meet and spent time with all these great people, and then after a semester, we won't be seeing most or even all of them ever again! How sad is that??!!! But then again, you'll never know, eh?! As someone's photo album entitled, "it's not goodbye, it's see you later", life is full of surprises. In a way, I feel lucky to have some things that make saying Goodbye so hard and glad that I have all the memories to cherish.

"Memories build a pathway that goes winding through the heart and keeps friends close, even when they are far apart"


PS: Have a safe trip home, Christina! See you when you get back! =)
