I intend to blog about something that has been on my mind..but I decide not to.. simply because I'm lazy and theres just too many things to be said..all at once.

so, instead..Im gona paste one particular lagu brunei. I think this particualr song is lawa. THe music is relaxing..and the lyrics is nice. Tapi biasa lah, as most lagu brunei = lagu cinta...so obviously this will be a jiwang jiwang music..so, enjoy ;)

Back in Canterbury

Im back...I didnt realize how much I actually missed this place till I arrive arah the bus station...as I make my day home through the streets and lines of shops...it struck me that despite not enjoying the uni here, I will infact miss the friends I have made here, walking around town with no purpose, cuci mata, my 'starbucks' sessions...etc etc etc.

2 weeks in London..that must have been the longest ever time ive spend di london. Usually I'll get enough of London just after 4-5 days...but this time its been fun..and the libraries are lawa. Well, SOAS is very old..but with the amazing collection of books...i can just sit and enjoy my time there the whole day. Too bad, the library there tutup by 5pm..and I find the photocopier annoying..lol. And LSE was equally great as well...and the library's layout is lawa...modern and spacious!

Besides that, most of the people from Canterbury..esp the UBDians ngam ngam di bruhall as well...so it was nice to have familiar and friendly faces to look at...to have dinner with..And the late night bingeing n omong omong kosong...lol.

..sharing the same room with Idot..hehe..its been fun and she is nyanyah early in the morning..haha..something i have to get use to..;p..and ofkos she pun have to get use to my addiction to nyanyi nyanyi random songs and random national anthems..hahahaha...dont miss me too much..;p

And yay!!!...I know how to use the buses sudah..and which number to take to get around in london...well, not brilliant lah..just ok..atleast budget sikit compared to the underground and atleast i get to see 'dunia'..;p

Ok then people, I will write more soon. Basically, besides my research in the library..its been brilliant..and good food as well di bruhall..haha...soto, ayam kari, martabak, mee basah, spaghetti, u name it...nyaman...atleast kurang rindu makan masakan brunei..lol.

Till then, bye ;)

Just for the sake of thinking aloud...

People always say that if you really want something really bad, it will come true eventually. We know, realistically,it is not that simple...we wont get the things we want just by wanting it really bad. Instead, it involves a whole lot of other factors to get us nearer to our goals. And there will be obstacles along every pathways that we choose...be it big or small.

And we were always told that if we really want something badly...we must set our mind to pursue it..be determined and willing to work our way towards it...it may take a month...a year or a couple of years before we can be at the place where we really want to be.

But, what happens if no matter what you do...you are still at the place where you first started?

What happens if no matter what you do..your goals are still far away?

And what happens if no matter what you do...instead of getting nearer to your goals, you are getting further away from it?

And, though people always cakap you need to besabar, be persistent and work your way from the bottom..but when will you know when to stop? when will you know that enough is enough?

Dissertation sickness!!

Now that exams are over..and most of the Bruneians are either back home or will be back in Brunei soon..its dissertation time for me and a few others...though the few others have the 'luxury' to do their research and finish up their typing back at our homeland..before heading back to the UK to submit it in a few mths time... *sniff*sniff*...i envy you guys..;p

Anyway, goodluck to us...who'll definitely be having nightmares...late nights readings and typing...endless editing...checking out the grammar...punctuations... endless meetings with the supervisor (hopefully, i'll start mine soon..) and endless mengusuting till its done. And without saying anything more abt my dissertation which will definitely bore you guys..wish me lots and lots of luck..;)

few more months to go before I am OUT of Canterbury...yay!!!!...;p
