Getting older and cheesier

Posted by Amalin Rosly at 00:14 2 comments
When you were a kid, have you ever wondered what it feels like to be an adult? And have you ever wished to become one? I do. Or grammatically speaking, I did. 

I once thought that adults knew what they were doing. 
I once thought that adults knew exactly where they were going.

But as the time passes,
and what seems to be the fun time ended, 
I began to see what adult really is about, 

It's about making decision on your own,
and having to answer to the consequences,
also on your own,

It's about seeing things more clearly, 
though it's not always a good thing,
though sometimes it means you suddenly realise the hurtful facts of something

It's about feeling more and more,
and appreciating more,
and sometimes being hurt more,

But that's life as i know throughout these 21 years

I have felt happiness, 
when my mother used to cook my favorite dishes, 
when my sister used to buy me my barbie dolls, 
when I got my straight As result in my exams, 

And i have also felt pain,
when my mother left me,
when i fought with my sister,
and when my result was too bad to be shown to anyone,

But then again, that's life as I know throughout these 21 years. The life that has taught me a lot of valuable lessons. I surely sounds cheesy and all but mann I'm really thankful for this life and I do expect so much more to live in the future. 
Thanks for the fancy treat guys :D
Andd thanks to orang jauh that sponsored the birthday cakes all the way from UK :D

So yeah, Happy belated 21st birthday to me (just got the time to blog about my own birthday since I have just finished my exam :D)

This Ramadhan

Posted by Amalin Rosly at 21:18 0 comments
Well hello there. Long time no see.

It has been hectic these past few months with studies, assignments etc

Well now it's the study week and so it means extra time for meeeee weeeeeeeeeeeee (or not because my study week is only for a week *cries a bucket*)

Ramadhan this year for me has been really different from the previous ones as it's my first time staying at my own apartment which means no makcik DS to cook sahur for me anymore. So, it's all about being independent now as if i don't wake up early to cook, it will mean no sahur for the rest of the housemates and me.

Now that i have that kind of responsibility, I realised how much i forgot to appreciate my mom's effort to wake up early, cook our favorite dishes during sahur and to wake 8 children (that is not an easy job).

Meanwhile for iftar, I would cook all those dishes that would make me feel like i'm at home. You know, stuffs like nasi lemak sambal sotong, kuih butir nangka and other dishes

I really hope that this Ramadhan would be a turning point for me to be a better person as a whole. And i also hope that whatever i do will not go to waste.

Singapore Trip 101

Posted by Amalin Rosly at 06:20 0 comments
So.. I've been typing and deleting everything I'm typing for about 10 minutes before I'm actually typing this. Lol. Long-time-no-blogging-syndrome I guess.

So.. here we go.

Last few weeks I joined a trip with my Medical students friends to Singapore. The first day was actually a short trip at JB but I guess I'll post about it the next post(only if I'm rajin enough :3)

From my trip, I have listed down Singapore Trip for students 101 below:

1) Make sure to book a hotel in JB to avoid the much more pricey hotels in Singapore.

2) If you're planning to go to USS, survey the price range first and it is much better to buy the one that include the package with bus and food because: 

i) The food inside USS is insanely expensive for students. So, if you have the voucher, you can save a lot.

ii) The bus that is included in the package will wait for you at both of the immigration (Malaysia and Singapore) and will not leave you like other normal bus to Singapore. Although it is a bit expensive compared to taking the express bus to Singapore, it is much more convenient. Trust me, I've experienced the normal bus and it is not fun to run from the immigration and then need to wait for another one hour for another bus because the bus already left us . Also the queue is normally long even on weekdays.

3) Make sure to bring enough mineral water from Malaysia because well you know the water there is not really mineral water but merely water treated through reverse osmosis.

4) Please please please bring an empty bottle because you'll find that the toilet there does not have pipe like in Malaysia. 

5) If you're a Muslim and is finding for a mosque, you should go to Kampung Glam as you will find the Sultan Mosque there (you need to walk a bit far from the MRT station)

6) Make sure to check out Hajj Lane as that is the only place I think is affordable for you to street shopping and also to eat halal food.

7) Oh and make sure to make the Singapore Tourist Pass before you hop on the bus/MRT/LRT because the bus there won't give you your balance no matter how much you put in.

8)Don't even bother to go to Orchard road as it is pretty much like Pavillion where you can't really buy things. 

9) If you have the time, try to go to Geylang as it is famous for the Malay food there.

Well, I think that's pretty much everything that you need to be prepared to visit Singapore. Honestly what I learnt from this trip is that I really love Malaysia. Not to be patriotic here, but being there really made me feel like I don't belong there and I think I know now why Allah has destined me to study in Malaysia first. He knows that I'm not ready yet :)

Lastly, here's some pictures of me and my friends in Singapore :

Resepi spaghetti tanpa menggunakan prego

Posted by Amalin Rosly at 22:39 5 comments
Patutnya tengah study organic chem sebenarnya tapi tetiba rasa rajin pulak nak share resepi spaghetti ni. Maybe sebab nak mudahkan perempuan/lelaki kat luar sana yang maybe nak masak spaghetti untuk kuantiti banyak tapi dilema sebab guna prego untuk spaghetti untuk kuantiti yang banyak is quite costly kannn. Dah pernah ada dilema ni dedulu sebab selalu masak untuk jamuan kelas hehe :D

So, here we go. Early warning, I don't eat veggies. So this recipe don't have any mushrooms ke ape but you're welcome to add them okay?

Bahan-Bahan:(untuk 5-7 orang so please tukar based on amount pemakan)
3 biji bawang merah*
2 ulas bawang putih*
1 1/2 sudu kecil lada hitam*
sos cili 
sos tomato
air rebusan daging
daging yang telah direbus dipotong kecil-kecil
planta or any sorts of butter or marjerine

*blender bahan yang bertanda ini

1) Cairkan dua sudu besar butter. Masukkan bahan-bahan yang telah diblender. Tumis sampai wangi.

2) Pastu, masukkan sos cili dan sos tomato(amount tu agak2 based on nak kuah banyak mana)

3) Then masukkan daging dan sosej. Tambah air rebusan daging , garam, gula dan mayonnaise(around dua sudu besar). Pastu rasa lah kuah tu rasa bersalah ke rasa sayang hey ke. There you go. 

Spaghetti Tanpa menggunakan prego yang sungguh jimat.

Oh and for those who wonder how to rebus spaghetti, just panaskan air cukup untuk rendam spaghetti sampai lemas, then tambah garam and butter sikit,

Ihsan gambar by mr google sebab tak pernah sempat snap gambars spaghetti ni. Asal siap masak je terus habis diibaham housemates hehe  

Ok dah. I should go back to studying now. Feel free to try this super duper easy recipe :)))

Closure of 2014

Posted by Amalin Rosly at 00:59 0 comments
Sooooooo 2014 has came to an end (like 8 days already myy myy how time flies)

So how's 2014 for you? For me, it has been a  rollercoaster journey from going through last semester of IB to now becoming a pharmacy student in International Medical University.

I listed down few things I learnt from this year (Warning:It's quite lengthy but go ahead and read if you're feeling rajin :D)

In 2014, I have learnt that success requires hard work (and less procrastination). Because eventhough I've tried my best for semester 4; never had enough sleep, going to class at 7.00 a.m just to study, studying in lrc every single night and weekend, I only managed to get 35 points for my IB which is one point away from going to overseas (according to Peneraju's conditions)

I also learnt that you better die trying than not trying at all. Because eventhough I didn't get to fly, but I'm proud of myself for trying everything I can ; going to kl alone, sleeping at my friend's house that is full of cats (Allah knows how scared I am to cats), going to KMB to get reference letter from my mentor, going to KMB again to remark my paper, going to MARA and Peneraju's office to ask if they would sponsor me, charging my laptop in a toilet just to reply to University College London's email that asked for my passport copy ...

but despite all that, what's written , is written. I am destined to study in Malaysia for the time being and I learnt the value of acceptance. Allah's indeed the best planner of all :)

Another valuable lesson I learnt is that life will always brings you down and it doesn't matter how many times you fall, what matters is how many times you get back up.

A few days after I finally got a definite answer that I'm unable to fly despite getting an offer from UCL, I was tested again after getting the news that my brother was involved in a fire and he suffered a second degree burn. Wallahi that was a really tough time for me. I stayed in the hospital for almost a month taking care of my brother.

But the thing is, you know what's the rainbow after the rain that i got from this test? Seeing my brother smiling and telling stories again after he started to feel better.

And now? I'm currently studying Bachelor of Pharmacy (hons) in IMU and things are looking good for now. I will forever be thankful to Allah to those He sent to accompany me during the hard times.

Actually my 2014 is not that sad lah. I believe there are others who have had a much much harder time than me. And I also believe that Allah will test his servants so that we remember Him more, and that He misses to listen to our plead :)

Have faith that things will be okay at the end of the day. Cause it will. He promised that and He understands what a promise means :)))
