I went to Bazaar Ramadhan PKNS after class this evening. Huh, the foods were extremely nice and appealing. I didn’t feel attracted at all with those foods actually. I lost my appetite looking at the hawkers…(I mean those who were not properly dressing well. I even wonder whether they have taken their bath or not!). Well, I ended up with buying foods that I’ve been craving for, since ages. These are the foods I bought! Don’t get jealous! I’ve finished all…
I called my grandmother for a caramel pudding recipe so I can make it next time myself!
I love her caramel pudding so much! She's good at making desserts like cakes and jellies. Hmmm...maybe I should get her butter cake recipe too....
Caramel Pudding Recipe:
1) 8 eggs
2) 1 tin of dairy milk
3) 1 glass of fresh milk
4) 3/4 glass of water
5) 1 spoonful of vanilla essence
6) 1/2 cup of sugar
1) Blend everything (blender).
2) Steam for 1 hour....

Bring our beloved university name, Mara University of Technology Malaysia, Shah Alam.
These are the books used for this subject (Pragmatics), which is taught by ASSOC. PROF. DR. FATIMAH DINNA BINTI TAN SRI DATO MOHD. DIN . She is one of the most energetic lecturers I have ever met. She is at golden age already, but her strength and stamina are as powerful as Ultraman. Well, both assignments are also based on these two books, except for Brown & Levinson's Politeness Theory which I had to download the information from the World Wide Web.
I woke up at 3.30 a.m....I don't know what to do, since I'm not well enough. Pragmatics assignment: Summary? Oh, my dear!
I fall asleep last night. Without intentions. I am not feeling well this morning, since last night actually. I'm having a storming stomachache. Girls know what I mean.
DEAR My CLASSMATES:
For those who are reading this post this morning, please tell Associate Professor Dr. Cynthia that I'm not coming to Professional Communication class this morning and please tell her why, straight away. Just tell her I won't give her any MC because I'm not going to Pusat Kesihatan....yeah, it's normal right? Human nature.......
how can a sick person arise and walk, then even take a bus to Pusat Kesihatan or any other clinic?! Impossible....huhu.
Can anybody replace my designation as a chairperson for the second mock meeting today? It could be Kak Farha or anyone else in the group...please! :-)
It was 4.15 a.m. I was suddenly awakened by a sound. It was scary.
Yes, someone was screaming. It became louder and louder. I wonder why.
I switched on the light and sit upright on bed, listening and analyzing. LOUDER AND LOUDER!!! It was a girl’s voice, I knew. I woke Jib up (my roommate), she -then- rose. We could hear several other voices as well, some panic female voices and a guy’s voice. It was whether they were calming or accompanying. We did not know what the problem was.
“It’s a child birthing kot”, Jib said in a soporific face. Funny!
I tried to take her words into considerations, although I actually could not, at all. Thanks for calming me, at least. She continued hibernating. Well, I couldn’t go on sleeping. The environment of my apartment became extremely eerie at the moment. It was already 4.32 a.m.
4.36 a.m., she was still screaming. I didn’t know who. But, I think, it happened downstairs. The sound seemed very very very very close to my house, especially my room. I opened my laptop (which I didn’t switch it off last night), and wrote this post. I was ruffled.
Now, the scream seems a little bit further from my house. But still, it is just around the corridor. I do not know which one or where.
Now, it is 4.42 a.m. She is still screaming. Whoever can sleep at this moment with this scary sound?
Someone is at the living room!!! Who? I left my laptop –stop typing- and walked to my room door. I pulled the door knob and -suprisingly- there were three of my housemates already standing in front of the door, Kak Syira, Kak Ain and Kak Nadia.
We gathered at the kitchen-just now, which is next to my room, having a small discussion. All we could do were guessing, analyzing, being sympathy, and consoling each other.
I continue typing…..
Now, it is already 5.00 a.m. Supposedly, at this moment I would be in the kitchen, cooking either my breakfast or a meal to bring to class. But I am too scared to do so. The scream is still on and on, I don’t know when it will stop. Isn’t she exhausted? When will this end? I can’t sleep like this, wondering who she is, where she is, why she is screaming. Those questions could be also circulating in others’ heads, the neighbours. If only someone could stop her…………ALLAH knows best. This is the last day before we celebrate the coming of RAMADHAN. A pure month when all the devils and bad spirits are kept and tied. Alhamdulillah, welcome Ramadhan!
5.55 a.m.: She is still screaming, even louder. It is azan. She screams as she is in a great pain. I can hear the sound of scratching and beating the floor.
6.00 a.m.: The scream changes into a fierce voice. A sort of tiger sound..like “GGrrrrr”. It sounds scary! Believe it. Then, I quickly go praying Subuh.
6.44 a.m.: She is still uncontrollable. I am busy cooking. I can hear someone is reciting azan for her. God blesses you.
7.00 a.m.: Everybody goes on with their own life. Students are walking out to catch bus for classes. Workers are ready to fulfill their responsibilities. Others are moving their cars to work. Whether you are screaming or not, everybody has his own routine. Just like me. I’ve finished cooking fried rice, as what I always do every early morning. Life must go on. How can we help you? We are too scared to go out and find where you are. In fact, we are on our life duties. But, I think, she is quite calm now. The sun has switched on Shah Alam and switched her off. No more screaming.
I went out of my house for CTU class at 10 o'clock. It was suddenly cancelled. As I went home, I met one of my apartment security guards. I asked him about the screaming this early morning. He said, it was a hysteria scene. It happened at Level 3 of Block 2. Well, it is my block. The house might be just on top of my house, since my house is on Level 2. The security guard do not know much about the incident, he was not on duty at that time. Well, that is enough information already. ALLAH knows best!
Good Luck to:
I am forgiving, of course, as a human being. I would understand, I would! If only you have said a special word, WE ARE SORRY. You don't have to state what your fault is....be pragmatic, yes I can accept that. But you did not. Huhuhu...this is not a good sign of an excellent service in a hospital...'should be a hospital'.
well, to be staright forward, I am talking about Pusat Kesihatan UiTM Shah Alam (PK). I went there on 1/8/2009. They gave me the out of date medicine, some pils....it is clearly stated on the plastic, GUNA SEBELUM 04 2009. Wow! I have taken two pils already! So?.......
My parents came to Shah Alam this evening, surprisingly. I knew that they were heading to Kuala Lumpur to join my cousin’s graduation day. I had a class that afternoon at 2. My father called me that he was on his way, but the only place he knows is Giant Section 13. He could not go further than that as he was worried if he could get lost. He requested me to meet him there. Oh, poor me! Well, for the sake of meeting my parents, why not?
No academic books anymore to revise! Huh, campus life is hectic! I wish I was a baby, but this ridiculous dream is impossible indeed! Well, I miss you, friends! I miss my classroom at Puncak which I won't be able to see it anymore, unless on purpose. We'll move to UiTM Shah Alam, the main campus. Well, I'm going to dearly miss my bloody-room at Puncak Perdana Hostel! Here are some pictures of my paradise at Puncak!
This is my corner...
I put my valuable things here! What things? Ha3...flowers and my books.
MY BED...was my regular place to study while enjoying a cup of hot chocolate.
This also became my 'dining' slot. I had lunch and dinner here, on this bed...
This is the picture of my previous wardrobe....
Nippon-Land of the Rising Sun. This is the most interesting programme I have ever joined. It was handled by the final year students of Faculty of Information System. The programme was successfully done to be graded as their final project. Honestly, this is the best among all programmes that had been done previously many times at PTAR (library).
I have gained a lot of useful experiences to be stored permanently in my box of general knowledge. The programme was absolutely resourceful as now I know how to wear a kimono! I know how to make sushi! I know how to do some origami.
Actually, I was here on a day before the programme was held. I could see the crew members were setting up their stuff for today’s occasion. I could see how they dressed up some of the huge dolls with kimono (traditional Japanese dress) and yukata (kimono-like dress during summer). They said, “Tomorrow you can wear this yukata and we take your photo. You just need to pay RM2.00”. Therefore, I could not sleep for the whole night thinking about the yukata. I longed to wear it! I said to myself that I have to come early so that I don’t have to queue up waiting for my turn to take pictures in kimono. Well, I made a brilliant plan!
The day has come! For your information, I intentionally went out from Pronunciation class for a while (not so ‘a while’, it took about 30minutes…ha3) in order to join the programme downstairs, in the library. Yes, Puncak Perdana Library is the only multipurpose library that can be found in the entire world. If there is any occasion like this, they will be using this library as a hall and set up some booths.
Back to the story! I quickly got into the library and registered myself as a guest. Amazing! All the crew members were wearing kimono and yukata (for both men and women). They gave me a small box for locating brooches. It is so cute and dark red in colour. Well, I walked straight away to a corner for photography session. There were two girls there greeting me in kimonos. They asked me to write my name on a piece of paper and I paid them RM2.00. “Here is your yukata”, one of them helped me wearing the dress. This was my very first experience. Although it was only a yukata and not a kimono, I felt satisfied to be able wearing it. The two crew girls said they could not provide kimonos for this photography session because kimono is extremely expensive. So, they were only able to display some kimonos, but not to allow us to wear any. In fact, kimono and yukata are physically alike. Instead the cloth used is different. Hence, kimono is thicker as it is used during winter while yukata is used during summer.
They took my picture in yukata, and the background was a picture of sakura tree with blossoming flowers.
Then, I moved to the next booth. I played a game in which I had to guess one among three bowls, which contained an origami flower. So, I got it right! They gave me a goody gift. Thank you! Then I moved on to the next table. This time, I played catching as many fish as I could in 30 seconds. I suddenly asked a girl who was passing by to play with me. She agreed! We were given a tea filter each. I caught seven golden red fishes while the girl who played with me got four. So, I won a goody gift again! Thank you! After enjoying myself, I went back to my classroom. My classmates asked me where I have been. I simply whispered telling my experiences. Then, some of them suddenly went out without Dr. Azni’s concern. Don’t say that I have influenced my friends to play truant!
Well, this is another story happened during Nippon-Land of the Rising Sun programme. I came again in the evening. I just wanted to get some other goodies. I registered again, but this time, it was my friend’s name. Luckily I remembered all her details, haha! Sorry, Kak Farha. I have used your name to get goodies. Yes, they did give me different goodies. I got another activity coupon, a paper bag, a keychain and another small box for locating brooches. Thank you! I analysed all the booths and things shown there. I was so impressed.
Then, it was a demonstration of preparing sushi. They taught us how to make vegetable sushi. I haven’t thought that making sushi is as easy as ABC. This is the recipe of preparing sushi rice to make sushi. I asked one of the chefs there as I stood exactly in front of him.
HOW TO PREPARE SUSHI RICE TO PUT IN YOUR SUSHI
1) Cook sushi rice (available at any supermarket, eg: Jaya Jusco) like cooking common rice
2) After it is cooked, leave it for 10 minutes before adding a mixture of sugar, vinegar and salt. How to do this mixture? It is easy. Use this measurement, 2:1:1. For example, boil 2 cups of vinegar, 1 cup of sugar and a cup of salt. Then, cool it for some times.
3) Lastly, add the mixture into the rice. Mix them well.
4) Leave the rice for a while so that it will be slightly soft and sticky. Done!
Okay, let’s continue the story! After a century waiting the sushi to be served, the chefs finally served the cute slices of sushi on the table in front of me. They did not put wasabi in the sushi. They took our eager faces first to put on their blog, so less pickles (kurang asam)!
Without any hesitation, I picked a slice of sushi and put into my watering mouth. It was deliciously killing me! I felt like at the end of my life! WASABI???!!! I have not tasted wasabi before! Thanks chefs! You made me literally crazy. I could not feel my nose at all. The fire was burning angrily in my throat and the smokes went slowly out from my nostrils.
There were drops of tears. I walked to the back table. Then the chef who taught us making sushi rice asked me, “how was it?” I honestly replied, “It was terrible. This wasabi is killing me!” Then he laughed out loud! He asked me to try the pickled ginger. Well, I did not trust him anymore. But he said the pickles can vanish the taste of wasabi. That is why wasabi is always served with some wet pickles. Then, he gave me a slice of wet pickled ginger. It looked like ‘kuah murtabak’, pink in colour with slices of ginger. I ate it, no choice!
Wow, what a relief! The taste of wasabi was suddenly wiped out of my tongue. What he said was true. However, I won’t like sushi anyway!!!!
It is a pleasant day with a bright friendly sun. I went to PKNS with Toon after ISD class. We went there holding a simple aim to buy a movie. Actually, we are assigned to do an assignment on bilingualism. All we need is studying on a movie which has elements of bilingualism. That means there must be two languages used by some actors in the movie.
Firstly, we headed to nowhere. But then, we dropped at a shop that sells CDs. We straight away looked at some CDs there. The salesgirl was so warm. I know this girl as I always come here with my other friend. I already know she is like that, like a box of ‘basi’ Sunsweet. Sunsweet is even much sweeter. So, that salesgirl was like a box of ‘basi asam boy’. She smiled, but she was pretending. I could read her face. After searching and having a discussion with the salesgirl, we chose a VCD entitled Escape from Huang Shi.
Then, we moved to SACC Mall, I wanted to go to Giant Supermarket. At Giant, I did not know what to buy. Then, I bought a food container and a bed mattress. It is very nice! I could not manage to buy pink bed mattress.
Well, it's fun to see many kinds of people. This is also a place to do some observations on how various people behave. In addition, there's a lot of things to feed me my eyes. Seriously, a myriad of foods there are absolutely appealing. I love nasi ayam goreng there (fried chicken with rice).
and pizza there is exteremly delicious! I'm going to die without that pizza once I go there! It is only RM2.50 per piece. It is enough to fill in the empty space of my belly. (I got a story about this pizza. I'll tell you later in the next post. I'm having a class right now.)
Honestly, some foods are costly....I only manage to glance at those foods via the edge of my two half-bubble eyes.
Well, everyday of my life gives me a story to share. Whether it is interesting or awful, I don't mind.
Words are emotions.
Words are expressions.
Words are evaluations.
Words are explanations.
Writing is exercising....
