My IELTS PLAN and COST

HOW MUCH WILL IT COST to sit for the IELTS?
International English Language Testing System

The list below shows how much I have/am going to spent for IELTS which will be held in a few days ahead.


Details:

**British Council IELTS, payment transmitted via MasterCard

So far, I have spent RM1,155.83 already, excluding LRT Kelana Jaya line to KLCCstation (RM1.60 one way) and Transit Bus fee from KLSentral to LCCT which must be paid upon arrival.

I hope this will become a journey of great worth.
I have to score more that 7.5 by all means.

Two heads are better than one

Proverb: Two heads are better than one

REALLY ???

It depends on the situation...
When I'm having a problem, I always ask for a bestfriend's opinion...
...but usually she will scold me
because it is so problematic and gives her such headache...haha.
I love her so much....

SOMETIMES, it is very necessary to have another head...

Although
NOTHING IS SOLVED
at least
YOU WILL BE AT EASE
because you know that someone is listening to you

At the end,
....you have to think alone....
because YOU KNOW MORE than others.


So, SOMETIMES...believe in yourself!!
Have a little faith, why don't ya!!!

The best advice is found on the pillow

Proverb: The best advice is found on the pillow

Meaning: If we face a problem, we can solve it after a pleasant sleep (normally at night).
 
People also often say: "I'll sleep on it." (source: Englishclub)

REALLY????

Sometimes it works....depending so much on the situation.

When I have a problem, I sleep on a pillow
and think about it for quite some time before falling asleep.
And normally, it ends up with a NIGHTMARE...
So, on the next day I wake up, I can't even solve my problem...hahaha.

Don't judge a book by its cover?

Don't judge a book by its cover?

Meaning: We can't judge something based on physical appearance.  

Can't we?

It depends on the situation....

Because SOMETIMES, in reality....we MUST judge something from the outside.
If it's good outside, it's supposed to be good inside...huhu.

This theory applies when choosing a safe food to eat.


and SOMETIMES when choosing a person to live with...


Choose wisely...GOOD LUCK!!

Three Tier Plate

This seems extravagance for a friend's wedding.
I will look for one to give her.

This surely makes her smile!


I love Malay Classical Songs

I currently enjoy to this song...really like it,
for the melodicromantic verses and beautiful words.

I fancy this song so much....sang by P.Ramlee and Saloma.
but in the movie, Roseyatimah sings the song instead.


Malam Bulan Dipagar Bintang

Malam bulan dipagar bintang
Makin indah jika dipandang
Bagai gadis beri senyuman
Pada bujang idaman

Belai kasih ingin dimanja
Dengan cumbuan mesra
Untuk pelipur lara
Penawar dik asmara

Mm .... mm .... mm .... mm ...

Malam bulan dipagar bintang
Tambah seri cuaca malam
Murni sungguh ciptaan Tuhan
Bulan bintang lampu alam

Andai kata bintang menyepi
Bulan tidak berseri
Malam menjadi sunyi
Tidak berseri lagi


Film    : Pendekar Bujang Lapuk (1959)
Song    : Malam Bulan Dipagar Bintang
Singers: P Ramlee & Saloma
Actors : P Ramlee & Roseyatimah

I fancy Saloma

I currently listen to this song...really love it,
for the melodic verses and majestic words.
It was my very first time listening to the song
a few days ago through a classical film Do Re Mi.
I fancy Saloma so much....
but in the movie, Wan Chik Daud sings the song.
 
 

GITAR BERBUNYI

Gitar berbunyi malam sunyi
Aku menyanyi seorang diri
Bulan mengambang cahaya terang
Walau seorang hatiku riang

Angin berhembus bawa salam
Abang di sana rindu dendam
Pandanglah bulan di langit biru
Hilangkan dendam serta rindu

Gitar berbunyi malam sunyi
Aku menyanyi seorang diri
Bulan mengambang cahaya terang
Walau seorang hatiku riang

Bunga di taman segar indah
Sehingga kumbang hanti gundah
Kalaulah hati ingin menyunting
Jangan dinanti bertukar musim

Gitar berbunyi malam sunyi
Aku menyanyi seorang diri
Bulan mengambang cahaya terang
Walau seorang hatiku senang


Film   : Do Re Mi (1966)
Title   : Gitar Berbunyi
Singer: Saloma

Hate to be back....

After nearly one month of illegal holidays at home....
 
I hate to come back here. Loads of work to continue.....
Lots of journals to browse through....
Less sleep to enjoy, true...
Song mode: "Dendang perantau by Sudirman"
 
TRUE
There's no place better than homeland...
You'll always feel sad to leave your hometown
no matter how many times you go back....
WE WILL NEVER FEEL BORED BEING AT HOME
 

Wordless Wednesday: Maggi Ketam

 Ketam Nipah (Fresh water crabs)

Floral English Theme

It's my cousin.....

After solemnization (majlis akad nikah)...

Fresh flowers....

Although she's wearing 'braces', she looks fairly gorgeous...

As usual...I have to doll up the bride.

 The fresh flower bouquet... It seems a must-have-thing, nowadays.

Simple wedding gifts...

Bye now!

Dayang Bunting Island


Dayang Bunting Island is located in Langkawi Geopark, Kedah, Malaysia. It is the biggest island in Langkawi, Kedah. We can travel there by boats for at least RM45.00 per person and it takes only 15 minutes from Kuah (about 17km). We can enjoy the majestic view of beautiful tiny islands along the way to Dayang Bunting Island. As you reach the island, the monkeys will excitedly greet you with pleasure. BUT BEWARE....don't give food to them.

This island is believed to hold mysteries and charms. It was named after a lady from ancient history called Dayang Bunting. "Bunting" means pregnant. The island seems to portray the shape of a sleeping pregnant woman. The unique structures of the hills and mountains on Dayang Bunting Island are likely to draw us a sleeping woman's head, breast and pregnant belly.

This island is well-known to have its mystical lake called Dayang Bunting Lake (Tasik Dayang Bunting), with the size of three soccer fields. It is believed to be magical because it is a fresh-water lake on the island, surrounded by sea water. Well, scientifically, it is proven 'not magical' at all.

We have to climb up the hill to see the lake (approximately 1km). On our way, we might stop to see the famous Langsuir Cave. "Langsuir" means vampire. If I'm not mistaken, it was named after the different shapes of the cave ceiling, giving us a picture of hanging vampires. 

Unique rocks are everywhere...

 The staircases....for easy climbing.

Plenty of small fish....to eat all dead skins on your feet.

The precious water...just dip your feet in. Pleasurable!


As we reach the lake, we can enjoy a lot of exciting activities, except swimming. Swimming in the lake is strictly forbidden, even if you are a champion swimmer.

The monkeys are always welcoming us...

 This is the view of Tasik Dayang Bunting

Its crystal clear water with reflections of the trees around definitely offers us a great memory home.....to be cherished forever.

 Bye now!!!

Muslimah Wedding

Who says muslimah wedding attire doesn't look good?
This is my best friend...an ustazah
She lives in Alexandria, Egypt with her husband. Both are studying there.

She dressed nicely on her wedding...although she's in tudung labuh (large hijab).
As long as you know how to be a beautiful bride...you'll be one.
It's you happy day after all....

 Put some make-up and dress up....yes, every bride must stands out!

This is her room.....simple but at least, it's permanent.

The dress...is jubah.

The solemnization.... 

 I wish you a happy journey ahead my best friend.... =)
May our relationship remain strong and lovingly blessed...
...Bye...
