Busy bee mode starts next week

Posted by Fira Tirona at 5:58 PM
My prof called me up this afternoon. Asked me to send an abstract to the Asian Congress of Nutrition 2011 few hours back. He asked me to write another journal article for international publication. I thought boleh la goyang kaki kejap kan but tu la dia. Takpela, buat je la. Afterall at least i won't get so bored since belum ada kerja lagi.  So yea, puasa FB starts again next week. That's when the process memerah otak resumes again.

Banyak lagi nk blog sebenarnya ni (from my recent Phuket Trip to my new Brooks running shoes that i got at a Jualan Gudang for RM90 yaw!) but now....I've got to get something scanned tapi macam lupa plak macam mana nk operate printer/scanner i ni. Haha. Later!


the final night

Posted by Fira Tirona at 10:02 PM
I'm currently at the room balcony while blogging this. waiting for my black lemon tea to get chilled in the mini fridge.  i am really blessed to have won this trip.  4 days  is not enough for someone who loves the sun sea and beach like me.

i am going to miss the relaxing ride on the cruise to phi phi island. being sun kissed while enjoying the cruise and admiring nature is just out of this world. the clear blue sky goes so well with the turqoise color sea water. amazing.  i  wish to come back here again.  i love being here and the fact that  i am here to have a real time for myself. some time to love myself more. gonna enjoy the very last hours of the night before getting myself back home.

P/s: secretly missing' mr cancer'


the island cruise

Posted by Fira Tirona at 10:38 PM
sea angel you made my day

Making me forget the sad things  i think each day

Loving the sea, the sun and the warm breeze that hits my face

Leaving me now  in  the state of craze

Sea angel you made my day

The island cruise to remember  i must say


Away for 3 nights

I received an email from my uncle who is residing in the United States. It was a very sad one. His best friend passed away due to Meningitis. Billy, as how we called him once came to Malaysia 10 years ago. He came along with my uncle for vacation and stayed at my house for i think a few days. Though i don't have many memories with him but i feel sad that he left the world too soon. He was just 40 years old when god took his life away. May your soul rest in peace Billy.

Never take our life for granted as HE will take our lives back in many ways

Bukan pelari tegar

Posted by Fira Tirona at 11:36 AM
I've got to stop running sesuka hati. I felt uncomfortable running this morning. No more fast starts. Well, memang la best run laju2. No more forefoot running as my calves akan rasa sakit after that. From now on, bila pegi easy run, kena rileks je. Oh ya, I've got to stop looking at my Nike+ every 5 minutes while running. Pendek kata, next run kena run rilex2 je. Maklum la, saya ni bukannya la pelari tegar. Oleh itu, from now on, I've got to stop running sesuka hati. I've got to set my pace right and stick to it. Kalau rasa boleh laju then I'll try to push. Got to change every single aspect of the way i run now and yes, I've got to gain my core strength back again.

Current mood: FRUSTRATED

p/s: teringin nak makan vanilla cupcake with butterfrost icing oreo on top yang best. mana la nak dapat?. can someone pls surprise me with this? haha  :p


Zodiac Sign

Posted by Fira Tirona at 11:05 PM

 I'm a Leo

July 23 to August 22 



Generous ,Loyal




Leo and Independence:

Leo is very independent but they need something to control and someone to admire them and appreciate them. (heheh). They are fully capable of being greatly successful on their own but they are much happier if they have an audience and a following of people who look up to them. (wink wink) They would prefer not be alone (*nods*)

Leo and Friendship:

People are attracted to Leo's zest for life and their warm spirit. They have the ability to lift up one's spirits and provide encouragement when times are rough. Their enthusiasm attracts people, Leos are social butterflies, not because they want to be but because people always naturally gravitate and surround the Leo. Leos are very difficult people to not like, they are usually fairly balanced, realistic people. They never dwell on the past and they will think you are strange if you do. Some Leos might be too caught up in themselves and be very self-centered but they are never too self-absorbed to help anyone who needs it. They pamper their friends and treat them well. A Leo is the ultimate friend. They do not hold a grudge and they are very forgiving. They have respect and understanding of people's differences. ( hmmmm..ada la tu yang betul tu)

Leo in a Nutshell:

Leo is the lion, this well suited symbol represents Leo very well. They possess a kingdom which they protest and cherish. The are high esteemed, honorable and very devoted to themselves in particular! The kingdom could be anything from work to home to a partner, whatever it is, you rule it. Leo is always center stage and full of flair, they enjoy basking in the spotlight. A Leo always makes their presence known. Leo are full of energy that acts like a magnet for other people. Others are attracted to Leo's wit, charm, and what they have to say for they speak of things grand and very interesting. Leo will never settle for second best. They want only the best which can cause lavish excessive spending habits as they enjoy their life of luxury, which is all to easily justified by the grand and magnificent Leo! Public image is very important to Leo, with luxurious possessions and ways of life, this keeps the public image in high standing. They will do whatever it takes to protect their own reputation. Leos are very generous, kind and openhearted people. If a Leo is crossed, they will strike back with force but they are not one to hold a grudge, they easily forgive, forget and move on. Leos are always trying to make things right in the world, they have larger then life emotions and they need to feel like they have accomplished something at the end of the day. They react to situations with action instead of sitting back and thinking about it, they are not impulsive however because they look at the future and consider consequences of their actions. (Uishh, like got the same characteristics in me jer. haha)

What it's like to date a Leo Woman? (ehem, jeng jeng hahaha)

The first step is to give her praise and adoration. The relationship will never work if she does not receive this from you. Do not look at other women when you are with her, she has to be the only one in your eyes. The thought of competition with other women completely turns her off, for she is marvelous and grand and better then any other woman (in her eyes)! Be prepared however to compete with other men. She attracts men, deliberately or not, because of her dazzling personality. She makes a good partner because she gives undying affection and love and makes you feel really mood about yourself. She is kind and supportive with an adventurous streak, she is always fun to be with. Leo woman will dominate,. But not completely for she still needs the man to lead the way and give her the desired sense of approval, she looks up to her man. Leo woman is perfect for the man who is affectionate and has a strong character but not too controlling. She needs someone who is passionate about everything in their life and who strives for the best in everything, because so does she.

Hmm, some are quite true and some are not. Perhaps all of this are all kebetulan je kot?. Its kinda fun reading all this astrology stuffs. Tapi don't go believing it 100% ok?. Have faith and keep and stay with it.

 So what's your zodiac sign like? 

p/s: Having faith is to believe what is real and disbelieving the not



Yang terjadi hari ini

Posted by Fira Tirona at 11:04 PM
My alarm clock woke me up today. As usual i snoozed  it back again. My 5 minutes snooz turned out to be a 20 minute one . Damn i was late. Quickly showered and had 1/2 cup of soy milk and a piece of wholemeal bread smothered with a little of my fav soft cheese. Headed to UPM. Road was jammed. Macam biasala jalan kat KL ni. Jam sana sini. Makan roti ngan jam pun lagi seronok. Haha. Sampai on time anyway.

My meeting with the supervisor started at 11am. I was scheduled to see him at 10am. Maka 1 jam i tunggu yang berhormat tu. Maklumlah supervisor i adalah juga timbalan dekan fakulti. Meeting went fine. Terasa hati macam happy sket as supervisor macam tak banyak kerenah sangat. Terasa seperti kurang beban di bahu. Haha. Meeting lasted for like an hour. Had my lunch with my dear coursemate. Kami sama2 tengah pulun untuk siapkan thesis. Tapi minah ni lagi hardcore sebab kekadang lepak buat keje kat faculty till 12-1am. Takpe, demi masa depan yang cerah. AMIN

Tapi yang paling sengal harini adalah when i found out that i forgot to bring along my running pants. I THOUGHT that i've put it in my bag pack. I was upset definitely. Dah la drive jauh semata2 nak pegi running kat sana *tempat dirahsiakan* hahaha. Weather was great and I even had a great running partner to go for a 6Km run today. Tapi tu la dia, takkan nak lari in my jeans kan? Tak sesuai. Tapi went walking  also la since dah datang . 1 round around the lake. Lepas tu I called up Ruby (another running partner) and asked her if she could lepak with me. Yeay! Dapat gak lepak with her today. Girl-talked and gossiped over coffee. Babe, if you are reading this, thanks for your time today ;).

Today went just fine walaupun tak dapat pegi running. Some how or rather, things do happened for a reason. :)


Chick #207

Posted by Fira Tirona at 12:22 AM

I'm now officially the new ayam in the reban. 

Chick #207 in the CHAP AYAM RUNNERS community

Went for my 1st LSD for the year this morning. Ran about 14km. Okey2 la. But i learned something today and i promised myself not to repeat it again. My vow was not to run dengan gigihnya that far especially on the 1st or 2nd day of "THE time of the month". Actually insiden macam ni penah jadi. Tapi lagi teruk sebab tu masa bulan puasa. Sekian. Haha :p


Sometimes goodbyes are good

Posted by Fira Tirona at 9:18 AM
Hello again. I decided yesterday to blog again. I've also decided yesterday to deactivate my Facebook account temporarily. So this morning i clicked onto the 'deactivate' tab and tada! it's deactivated. I'll let it sleep and rest for awhile. LOL :p

Why deactivate? I dunno. I just had that urge to do so. Just to see how my life will be without it. So far still boleh bernafas kot? haha. (ceh ceh, berlagak je. padahal baru je 1/2 jam deactivate invention Mark Zuckerberg tu). But i do have some reasons for it tho. Let me share my 2 cents with you.


Haha, i spend A LOT OF MY TIME mengadap FB ni. That's the first thing that i will do when i start my laptop. Pagi2 je dah sibuk nak tengok status update orang., tengok photo updates., commenting on photos and commenting on others' status updates. Haha. Teruk betul. Not only that, it disrupts my time on doing something else like my THESIS for instance, house chores and more. I think its best that my time is filled with other beneficial activities like blogging for instance. At least blogging tak la take so much of my time sampai berjam2 unless i'm like a celebrity blogger or something. So there you go, TIME IS PRECIOUS

p/s: orang2 berkerja pun suka ber-fb dan lantas membuatkan productivity menurun. I penah nampak la officer kat *tempat dirahsiakan* rancak gila ngadap fb, muka serious gila sampai student kat dpn counter pun dia buat derk je!. Geram betul. Campak pc tu baru tau. Haha :p


Ok, this might be a sensitive issue. Misinterpretation of every single thing can happen in facebook from status updates, tagged post, tagged photos, photo comments and more la. Some may just update anything that's on their mind and tetiba je banyak je comments yang membina/ stupid/ takde kene mengena akan menyusul after that. Ada gak status update yang i rasa poyo/ mengada or "perlu ke ko update status macam tu?" but normally status updates macam tu i akan just buat tak baca je. Haha. Selalunya i will think before i comment coz i rasa certain comments boleh buat certain people terasa when you thing that what you commented to cam takde ape2. Byk kali la i tgk status updated being misinterpreted. Sampai gado2 kat facebook. Tak baik la kan. Nak comment tu biar la berpada2. Kata2 tu biar la disusun dengan baik. Kalau nak komen yang stok pedas/tangkap dalam punya ada caranya.

Ok, dalam fb chat pun misinterpretation can happen. How? contohnya when smiley icons are used. Contohnya la kan: Cik A: kau ok ke wei ngn aku punya suggestion. pastu Cik B reply: ok je kot :). Cik A mungkin interpret that Cik B ok sebab dia kasi smiley icon tu. But note the word KOT before the icon. Haha. Fikir2kan la sendiri. Cara terbaik, telefon je la. Baru u tau kawan you tu ok ker tak. Same applies to you as well.


Well, it is cool to be connecting with your friends on fb. You get to keep in touch with those you dan berzaman tak jumpa, which i think its a good thing. You get to see their again..updates/photos or whatever. But i'm pretty sure that you will just keep on connecting with them and saying things like "eh, kena jumpa doh...dah berzaman dinasour tak jumpa ni". Cakap je kan. It happened to me to and sampai sekarang ni i tak jumpa lagi my friend yang i berzaman dinasour tak jumpa tu. Dah la she still remembers my full name. Haha. Comel betul. I think i should buzz her for real this time. I better do that next week. *promise pada diri sendiri*.
Oh another way of "socializing" yourself with friends is to also 'poke' them. You know, that application that has the jari telunjuk icon. My rendition of "poke' on fb is that macam in real life, you tengah jalan pegi somewhere, pastu ada orang cuit you kat bahu, u pandang pastu u akan angkat tangan or angkat kening tanda you acknowldege kawan you. hahah. Menda la kan. Baik cuit kawan2 you in real life, at least dapat gak diorang tengok muka you, expression you macam mana kan? terkejut ke, marah ke, gelak2 ke? Lagi seronok kot?. So there you go. GO OUT AND SOCIALIZE WITH FRIENDS/NEW FRIENDS. I think it's better to see them in person and have that real conversation and at the same time get the tighten the bonds you all have. Priceless i believe. Oh, kepada yang nak cari pasangan hidup tu. Tak perlu sgt la cari kat fb tu sebab bukan semua dalam fb tu indah. Why not go out with other circle of friends or be introduced to other circle of friend by your current close friends. Mana la tau terjumpa yang berkenan di hati. Tgk face to face to dulu la baru thrill. Then pastu, baru add dia kat fb. Kalau dia interested kat you, he/she will accept your friend request. Kalau tak, tunggu la sampai diorang approve korang.

Overall, i feel that we are too dependent on fb. Well i'm not saying that the site is bad. Well it is a good medium of connecting with people. Even people run their business on fb and even wedding invitations are done just through facebook. Memang practical, fast and efficient. But i believe that certain things are better left the old-fashioned way, old-schooled. If you need to connect with someone, call them/meet up or whatever!. I think i'm gonna do that now. So goodbye facebook (err temporarily, haha), hello again to the real world! ;)


to stop blogging for the time being

Posted by Fira Tirona at 9:23 PM
I noticed that lately ni my blogposts cam tak berapa best. Bila i baca balik previous blogs most of it mesti ada cerita hati sedih. Orang baca pun boleh bosan. Yelakan, membaca blog minah yang selalu sedih/emo. Dah rasa macam loser la plak kan. Cerita pasal my running routine/ events pun dah makin lama makin takde. So i rasa it's best that i stop blogging for awhile la till i get better or happies things/topics to blog about. Rasanya kalau nk blog benda2 sedih better je la buat dalam personal diary. So takdelah nampak pathetic sangat.

So i guess that no more blogging for the time being. Nanti bila rasa macam hati dah riang or bila ada idea yang boleh menghasilkan topic yang best/provocative/mind-boggling/ lawak2. Then i'll resume again. At the same time boleh gak restructure balik layout design blog ni. Kasi re-branding sket (tukar url baru ke) or mana la tau tetiba jadi firatirona DOT COM ke? heheheh. Walaupun akan stop blogging buat seketika tapi i akan tetap baca blog2 orang lain. :p.

Till next post! (which is i tak tau bila LOL) ;)


The need of motivation for the passion/s we have

Posted by Fira Tirona at 9:31 PM
There are time that we feel down and melancholy about the issues faced in our lives. As for me, i tend to get worried when my passion or interest don't get full support especially from the people i love. Thank god that i have close friends, friends with similar interest and passion to share what i like doing. I'm not saying that people i love don't give me the support but sometimes they don't just give me that extra kick of support to what i do and that by end of the day i will feel disappointed with the things they say and the reaction they will give me when i tell them about it.

Ok, i'm being very vague here. Bet that you are thinking or digesting what i'm rambling about. i even posted something on my fb few minutes ago which reads:

"At times, u just need that someone or something that has got to do with your passion to get you motivated back again"
And to my suprise, this status of mine was "liked" by my friends and family. Padahal, i just tulis like bodo2 je. Well, maybe they could understand what i'm trying to express. Well, at least.hehe.

So I am feeling this way you might ask. Selama i hidup ni, there are things they i like to do, or what i wanna do, or what i want to be are being screened by my parents. Now macam dah kurang sket la but i still have to endure the arguments, debates and wat not on certain issues till i get the greenlight from them. Same applies to my other half as well.. Serious macam like kena argue bertegang urat sampai nak putus baru la nk kata OK. Haha, penah tak jadi kat korang macam tu. Bengang tak bengang tak?

Lets start when i was a little girl. Well, like normal growing kids, i've always wanted to be a doctor. Yer, cliche tapi yea, profession yang bagus. But the angan2 was not that long till i got merely an average greats during matriculation. Serious i fucked up (opps sorry) my whole year there. I memang tak boleh study kat sana. I felt so trapped as i was surrounded by straight A students. Bukan setakat student yang dapat 8A, yang 9-11A pun ada. And mine u. A1s ok?. OMG, stress gila. Mood nak blaja hilang. Everday pun nak balik rumah ( i was lucky sebab UM dekat je ngan rumah). So nak dipendekkan cerita, dengan results 'cantek' cam tu only la layak masuk IPTS. Kalau tau la jadi macam ni, patut amik je sports science kat uitm dulu. Minat gak tapi the reaction i got was " ha? amik sport science? pastu jadi ape? jadi cikgu PJ?". i was like..."ape kes?" nak jadi cikgu PJ tk yah ada degree pun tkpe kot? Lagi satu minat i nk amik Mass Comm tak pun TESL sebab deep down inside i tau i boleh nk ace course tu. Yelah saya suka membebel. Sekian. Ok. fine, niat terbantut.

So, masa enroll kat IPTS, my parents sebok soh i amik biomedic. Tapi niat dalam hati memang dah tawar hati ngn course yang ada perkataan "medic" kat belakang. Cam serik pun ada. I ni bukannya la ada otak geliga or jenis yang ngadap buku bio, chem or watever 24/7. OH NO NO. Tapi takpela, dah grad dah pun. Dapat la keje 1 year after that dapat sambunh Masters. Alhamduillah. And now tengah battle with my Master's thesis. Final sem, critical, dan hari2 berdoa agar Allah permudahkan segala final stages of it. AMIN

Ok, tu part academic la. Oh lupa plak nak citer pasal MUSIC. Well, i can play the piano. In fact i'm a 7th grade holder. Reason tak habiskan till grade 8 is that i time tu BZ ngn SPM. Tapi sampai2 sekarang tak habiskan pun. Bukan tak minat lagi dah. I still like playing the piano walaupun sedikit rustic but kalau pratice hari2 boleh la kot nak cari makan tapi taklah sampai nk jadi femes cam Alicia Keys or Yuna ( oh baju Yuna pakai masa AJL sangat lawa!. eh eh lari topic plak). Dulu ada band and i play the keyboard. Tapi separuh jalan jelah sebab my mom tak suka the idea of me pegi jamming kat studio. Laaa dah tu? Alicia Keys pun jam kat studio kot?. Haih, tak faham. Again, niat terbantut. Takpela, main untuk diri sendiri dengar je la nanti.

Next issue pasal sports. I have always been active i sports. Altho tkde la active macam atlit2 negara or international athelete. But ok la kalau nk peluh2 and kasi badan fit and and healthy. I ingat lagi time kecik2 dulu, nak masuk sports gempak2 tak boleh sebab badan cute sangat. Kalau setakat lontar peluru tu boleh la. Haha. So disebabkan tak boleh nk buat athletics my dad belikan roller blades, pastu beli mountain bike. Ala, tetiba lupa plak brand MTB i. But i remembered it was in blue. Sangat sayang basikal tu. pakai sampai hampir ranap, mana tak nya. turun tangga pun naik basikal. Ha, amik kau, ganas betul anak dara ni. Then, bila masuk uni, kawan2 ajak main futsal plak. best kot futsal. Of course la my parents tak bagi main kan. But i ni degil dan disebabkan tak dengar ckp parents, ankle kaki kanan i ntah brapa kali dah terseliuh. pegi class pun sampai kawan kena tolong papah. Yela, nak pegi class kena naik tangga. class pun slalu floor yang plg atas. Sedih betul. ahaha. Since, slalu sangat kaki terkehel, maka retire la dari arena futsal. Tapi kkdg hati tu rasa macam nk pegi gak main once in awhile. Tapi, tak mau la. sebab sekarang jaga kaki. Sebab ada passion baru which is running (insiden terseliuh kaki memang tak leh lari dari my life sebab time lari pun leh terseliuh. haih)

Ok anyway, balik pada cerita running ni. I started end of 2009. Masuk for fun je. Sebab stamina pun takde la gempak mana pun. Masa mula2 masuk event DUKE RUN, lari pun tercungap2 wpun only 5km distance dia. My parents ok la supportive gak pasal larian2 ni. TIME tu la. Sebab mungkin diorang ingat i ni macam tak la serious nk masuk benda2 macam ni. After that run, i rasa macam addicted. I registered in more runs. Duit pun banyak spend kat running attire and registration fee. So biasala, mom pun start pok pek pok pek. I pun cam pelik la, benda ni bagus kot? healthy activity. Still tak mendapat greenlight. Tapi my peak was after raya. Byk gila event i masuk. lari sini lari sana. Training sini training sana. Time tu tkde sape nak bising sape my parents takde. Even masa bulan puasa pun berlari gak sampai kena BANNED from running at night. I kena marah teruk dari my bro and bf. My mom marah gak la tapi dia macam cool gak. Sebab i msg dia and told her the reason of me doing so. I became active running pun sebab i met with up with friends with the same passion and interest. Diorang banyak membantu, banyak motivate. These people la yang paling faham i. Sangat happy to have known them. Wpun baru kenal, but i feel that they are very close to my heart. Cakap pasal running gak, i have a friend that is so passionate about this sports that i think he would do anything to be given an opportunity for him to go further in his passion of being a great athlete. His latest post made me realize how keen he is in the running world and how far he wants to go. Click to his blog, Running is my passion, art is my soul if you are an avid runner and give your support as well :). He's also a budding graphic design student.

So there you go. i feel that what ever your passion or interest are. You definitely have to need someone or something to motivate you. Not only for that spur moment but constantly so that you won't get offtrack. Well, memang boleh nak motivate diri sendiri tapi but i guess you just need a friend/s to be there for you. Right?


My rendition of Eat, Pray, Love

Posted by Fira Tirona at 7:08 PM

Will blog about this soon enough :)


Dah baik, finally

Posted by Fira Tirona at 8:03 PM
I'm back to my normal state. No more jet lags, nausea, and pening2 lalat. Bila sampai Liverpool after the long hours flight takde plak jadi macam ni. Bila balik Malaysia macam2 plak jadi. Sakit badan la, loya la ape la. Ish

Anyway, i'm feeling better now ( i hope). Tadi while driving to uni pun i was experiencing headache and i felt like REAL sleepy. In fact i'm feeling really sleepy now. Maybe time tido belum betul lagi kot. So after uni, i pegi to visit my grandparents and they were so happy to see their cucu kesayangan *ehem*. Haha. Then balik rumah, tak sampai 10 minits mom ajak pegi this interior design shop. Katanya nak letak wallpaper kat my room. Kasi my room cantek. Hehe. Chose a black white and silver shade for my room wall. Hope my mom agrees on it la. Kalau jadi nanti i'll post up the new look of my room. Which will only happen after CNY. Harap bersabar ok? ;)

Esok kena start running again. Hm, tapi motivation untuk berlari tu macam hilang sikit. I need my running motivator!. Dia pun cam bz je lately ni. :(. Takpela, pegi lari sendiri je la. Hope to start fresh and free from all my sakit2-ness. Thesis pun dan memanggil *dang* and oh, kena siapkan resume. Next week nak hantar. Kat mana?. Ha..nanti dah dapat kat mana nanti i beritahu.

p/s: rasa2-nya kalau pencinta kasut jadi lecturer sesuai ke?


back to life back to reality

Posted by Fira Tirona at 12:04 AM
back home. home sweet home. rindu rumah. rindu katil, rindu bilik, rindu kereta dan rindu macam2 lagi. tapi yang paling tak rindu is kembali ke realiti kehidupan. well it's not that i hidup dalam alam fantasi macam alice in wonderland tu but cam malas nk face the real deal. ahah. boleh tak cenggitu?. ishh..cannot2 like this. must be positive sebab dah janji pada diri sendiri over a lot of things.

But right now, i got to get my sleeping time fixed. feeling to jet-lagged. pening. nauseous.

Till next post when i'm feeling less jet-lagged. Hiks

p/s: cam kemaruk nak makan benda yang best plak time2 macam ni.ish2


last hours in Liverpool

Posted by Fira Tirona at 3:51 AM
phew...baru je lepas packing barang. penat kot today. the whole day berjalan. maklum la last day berholiday kat Liverpool. Went to the city center again for the last time to get my mom's handbag idaman. Memang rezeki my mom that the bag jual kat sini. Kesian dia mencari the whole KL tapi tk jumpa. I'm sure she will be delighted to see it nanti. Then pegi Tesco beli barang dapur for my brother. Nasib la dah masak earlier. So tak la kelam kabut sangat. Oh, we had spaghetti carbonara today. Budak2 ni makan pun tambah je. No complaints. Sedap la tu. Kalau tak sedap pun makan je la kan sebab sejuk and lapar.

Got home and kept the things dulu. Then we headed to Sefton Park like 1/2 hour walk from our place. Cantek sangat tempat tu. Breathtaking sangat. Sempat gak la i pegi run 3km kat sana. Wanted to run more tapi cam takut sebab banyak dogs kat park tu. Kat sini, dog owners je leave them running around, unleashed. I ni takut anjing, penah experience kena kejar. So cam trauma sket. Dogs here are BIG ok?. Altho they are harmless and tak kacau, but still cam takut. Heheh. And there was one dog that came up to us pastu suruh baling the stick yang dia bawak tu. Comel please. Tapi takkan la nak main throw and fetch kan? Kang satu keje plak nk kena samak semua balik. So the owner came up to and apologize sebab she was afraid that her dog macam made us terkejut. Sangat polite that lady. And yes, people here are polite ok. Even u nak cross the road pun, they will stop dulu and make u cross 1st. Tak macam kat Malaysia, lagi nampak kita nak cross jalan, LAGILA diroang accelerate. Sungguh tak civic minded langsung. OK back to the park story. I just love it there. I bet nanti masa spring and summer lagi LAWA. Haihh, i wish i could come back here again kalau ada rezeki amin.

Overall, I'm happy with my stay here. I feel more calmed and relaxed since i got here. Free from the dramas, hustles and bustles back home. I'm ready to go home now to face whatever that awaits me, be it good or bad. I've got to face every challenge with a positive mind and be strong and tough at the same time. But on the other hand, i wish to come here again. I love it here. I've learned to be more independent during my stay here cuma downside dia is that i malas buat thesis. LOL. Ish, tak boleh jadi ni. Balik ni kena pulun BAIK punya (sebab lepas ni nk pegi Phuket plak. Ni pegi sebab menang contest in SHAPE magazine). So yea, i berdoa' to come with with clear mind, heart and soul.

Gonna miss my adik tho. I know he's kinda sad that i'll be leaving tomorrow. Gotta get some sleep now. More post about my 21 days experience here soon. Till then, have a great year ahead everyone. :)

p/s: Pencinta kasut made someone upset today. She is so at fault and feeling terribly bad about it till now. She is so very sorry :(. You know who you are.



Posted by Fira Tirona at 10:11 AM
Happy new year all. How was your new year celebration?. Mine was a quiet one. What i did today was just lepak at home, layan dvd, dengar lagu in my ipod, re-arrange songs into my ipod sebab it went "bengong" kejap as it wouldn't sync with my Itunes. Sabar je la. I had to reset it all over again making some of my fav song to hear for running hilang. Now dah ok . Nasib la pandai godek ipod ni. I'm not that IT/ gadget savvy tho.

Me and the boys (my bro and my cuzin) were glued to our chairs practically the whole day. Sorang main game, sorang layan OC. I plak konon nk baca journal. Tapi baca half way je dah malas. Gila demotivated. Nak lari petang sini pukul 4 dah gelap. Orang pun dah takde. Takut pun ada nk kluar running. Kalau ada kawan tkpe. How i miss running back home. Sabar2..few more days nak balik dah. But tomorrow noon i'll be going a park like 45minutes away from home. Last kopek la to run in the cold. Well, the weather is kinda ok now. It's like between 5-6 degrees.

Sighh, feeling rather melancholy now.. Its almost 2.30am and i'm still not asleep. It's so unlike me. There are still things bothering me. I just hope that i'll be tough enough to go through what ever obstacles ahead of me this new year. I wanna be more optimistic, i wanna be back on top of the wheel again. I miss that good feeling. I wanna it back. I wanna it back real bad.

I better get to bed. Gotto get recharged. Dear 2011, please be kind and dear to me. I hope that my journey for this year will be blessed by the Al-Mighty. Insya-Allah. Amin
