my gram just passed away.... it's been a tough time for me. i was the first one who got there since everybody were at work. i was about to go to my other gram's house when suddenly i got a call from cik no crying non-stop. so i calmed her down and asked what exactly happened

me: cik no jgn nangs. cba bgtau ac nape dgn atok
cik no: cik no tngk atok dh ttup mata sabrina. dia x ckp lgsg. cpat dtg
me: ok2. jap lg sabrina smpi

so i got there, there were cik no and bibik. so i checked her pulse and there's nothing. so we started calling all the people and i was among the ones who helped to clean my gram. so we quickly wrapped her up, clear the house and i cut the daun pandan. i'm not so sure exactly what daun pandan has to do with the ceremony but they said that they want to make it as a pillow. so bibik and i prepared 2 basins of it.

after asar, the ceremony began. they did the sembahyang jenazah. 1 thing i feel sad about was that i can't read Yaasin and go to the cemetery because it's my red flag day. so i just stay at home with cik no and bibik. cik no is not feeling so well right now. she has a cancer and it makes her really weak.

so mama and i went back home to cook for the kenduri tahlil. we got back to my gram's house after maghrib and quickly prepare the food because the guests will be coming after isya'. Alhamdulillah everything went well. so we are having gotong-royong to cook for the kenduri tahlil for the next couple of days. i can only help for tomorrow but i can't attend the kenduri because im off to singapore.

everybody keep mentioning how lucky i am to be at my gram's funeral just at the right moment. honestly, my gram hadn't been so well since the last few years. she's been staying with me for 1 year. in egypt, i keep praying that if she has to go, i just hope that i can be by her side. she's been taken care of me since i was in standard 1 and i was so close to her. to all the readers, do pray for my gram. semoga Allah mencucuri ramat ke atas rohnya amin.....

in malaysia

music: no music at all. hahaha
tv series: power rangers dino thunder
movies: attack of the pin up boys

i'm so happy happy right now. been in malaysia for nearly 1 week. miss egypt so much. didn't do anything much here. just got to online. can't connect my laptop with the net. my mum's laptop has been with lee all this while. finally can land my hand on it. during this 1 week, i just stay at home and adoring it.

just got a new bedroom set and i don't hate it. to my surprise, mama finally decided to change the colour of the house. my room would be pink in colour. so cute... and mama just sewed a purplish pink flowery curtains for me and i love it so much. my bed looks like the princess-kinda bed. it's a queen size. gave my previous bed to aunty suha. she's actually younger than me by 1 year but i call her aunty because she's my mum's cousin. her dad is working with my mum so our family are kinda close. her mum died few years ago. her dad lost his job after that. it's been a tough time for her and her family.

after i got off the plane, i finally laid my eyes on my dad, nenek and my siblings after 2 hours waiting for the luggage. luckily klia is nearby to my house. later, i met wit all my parents' family. sangat best ( can no longer say best giler coz nenek dah tegur ). they said i look different in tudung. for me there's nothing much because i've been wearing it for nearly 1 year but they just see me wearing it here so it's kinda weird for them. hahaha. when i iron my tudung, ed was like " nape nak iron tudung. kakak bukannya pakai pun" . i just gelak-gelak after that.

the most anticipated person that i wanted to meet were aunty na and her family. after i tidy up lee's room that morning ( she's been staying with my gram for quite some time now), i went down to watch a movie ( atok's been conquering the tv. can't say much. his house. hahaha). when i'm about to open the laptop suddenly harith and huzayl enter the hall and keep on calling kak sabrina. i was like so excited i ran to go and see them. after i salam with them, i saw aunty na and i straight away go and hug her. finally, i get to hug qash too. she's one year and 6 months now. dah besar makin kurus plak dia. i played with her all day and not to forget, kissed her a lot. hahaha. so i chit chat wit aunty na and uncle israrr. they too looked so surprised when they see me in tudung

yesterday i finally got to eat my mum's cooking. she don't cook during weekdays. she just cook only on sunday. i ate tom yam and udang masak lemak tempoyak. it was awesome. so i learn how to cook them. it was so easy actually. later i have to berguru with my mum and nenek to cook delicious food before i go back to egypt soon.

before that, i woke up quite late yesterday morning. we had our breakfast at khulafa at seksyen 7. i had maggie goreng and milo ice ( yum yum ). later, we went to mydin subang. tol seafield was like so lengang and so does the mydin. maybe because harga barang sume dah naik. i met kak nora and family there. angah had a lift with us because it's quite full in cik din's car. later singgah at cik aman's house and met mak su and pak su there. later, i went back home after zohor.

at night, i chat with hanif, my best buddie during my matrix time. we decided to meet each other tommorow after zohor at mid valley. long time never see him. he's my first friend that i'm going to meet with since i landed on malaysia. wonder how he's changed. it's been nearly 1 year since we last met. so whoever wanna meet me, feel free to drop at mid valley tomorrow. hahaha

malaysia lai lai lai

music: juwita suwito walk away
series: suju exploration of human body
movies: mr. bean's holiday

finally settled down in the new house. i'm officially no longer staying at block b. been sleeping
here for quite a number of days. just got the internet today. too bad it's quite slow. went to
hussein yesterday. waited for the tremco around 7 am but somehow there's misunderstanding
between abang halim and the ammu. so take off for cairo around 9.30 am. there were 11 of us.
musyrifs - syazwan and rafique. thanks a lot to them for being really tolerant with us.

when we reached ramsis, ummu was separated from us. got her boyfriend and friend fetched her there. her boyfriend showed us how to get to attaba by metro. he bought us the tickets. that's so
thoughtful of him. untung ummu dapat boyfriend yang sweet. haha. reached hussein just in time
for zohor. lunch - macarona and nasi ayam handmade by bobo and aten. start shopping till my
joints all can take no more. leave for mansoura around 8 pm. only 7 of us left. the rest went to
assfour. stucked in traffic jam around 1 hour. reached mansoura around 12 am. got back and had
some dinner. lately been eating dinner quite late. super busy since after the exam.

when to aunty ala's house today after asar. stuffed with food there. got mashi, lahmah, macarona and cake for dessert. seriously the egyptian eat a lot. hahaha. mama has been so nice to us. got lots of food from her since the first day we moved to the new house. she gave us basilla, macarona and today - muqaliyyah which i don't like so much. it's so slimey and it tastes like leaves which i helped her tucked it off from the stem. we gave her some nasi ayam but too bad she didn't like it.

she's been so lonely. got no friend to talk to. though we all speak like ayam and itik, but still she likes talking to us. our house are just side by side. she always come and knocked our house. thanks to her, my arabic is getting better day by day though i still fail if i take the arabic paper. haha. besides, she got these two kids - munni wa agari. so cute. love to cubit their cheeks. but aiyo... really naughty. i might just want to have two kids in the future. haha

5 july - go to gawazet to get the visa. have to pay 51 le. i'm totally broke this time around. pay the rent, souvenirs, etc. haha. then going out with cik alia. miss her like hell. she's been staying quite far away from me. can no longer manja-manja with her. :p

6 july - leave the house and have to be at ramadha hotel around 5am. wait for the bus to go to alex. flight will be around 11am. will be reaching malaysia insyaAllah around 2 pm on 7th july.

7 july - papa will be waiting for me at klia. haha

miss my ex-housemates like hell. i cried while thinking of them. huhu. can't help it. i'm a girl.
wouldn't it be nicer if we all can still be at block b. all malaysians. we can always share the food,
go to classes together, play basketball anytime that we want to, go out with friends from other
houses, have party, sleep whichever house that we want to, etc. by the way, the toiron people
can't be trusted. keep post-poning the party. in the end, no mood for party. i'll be missing egypt
so much when i get to malaysia soon. not mansoura obviously but friends etc. hahaha
