Judging a book by its cover?

I was on my way back from the faculty. Since I’m alone, I decided to move a little bit faster and rebut2 to squeez myself into the bus. I hate to be seen alone. No offence, but being alone is not cool ok. Well, I sat beside this guy, and he looked extremely skema; yes, the typical portrayal of nerd-do nothing else but study-anti social person you see in school. FYI, most of the bus drivers love to listen to regardless of how old mature or young they are. So happens that suddenly the Guns n Roses’ Sweet Child of Mine was aired, and he started singing. I find it amusing that this guy had a very high ambiguity tolerance and definitely thin ego-boundary because he sung like no one else was there. Not to forget, the head-banging and leg movements at the chorus; which looked funny at first (oh, I purposely pinch my nose and try as much as I can, not to laugh. And succeeded! Ha ha ha). And his voice was, hmm, okay not that bad. To think about it, I believe most people tend to have this stereotypical thinking; or I’d say rigid first impression towards people we meet the first time. But I don’t know. Should or should not a book be judged by its cover? Or maybe what that guy did is normal, and I should anticipate that to come out from a nerd-looking guy? Anyhoo, I think you rock, Mr.! :)

Here in my home

Perlu ke? But since it's August, and Hari Kemerdekaan is just around the corner, I feel the urge to at least have this Merdeka spirit. I love this song anyway. Enjoy!

Dr. Edwin talked about nationhood in his class last week (While the you-know-who kept saying that she should prepare to migrate. Hmm). It was an eye-opener, really. He seldom talks about these kind of issues anyway. I should go to Malacca Equatorial Hotel one day. I didn't know much about Tuanku Abdul Rahman Putra Al-Haj's deceleration of independence except for the repeated MERDEKAs! That's for me to find out. Or maybe you too, should do the same.

Selamat menyambut bulan kemerdekaan, people! :)

Am not thinking that much lately,

Okay, so I've left this blog unattained. Pardon me. But it seems like I'm too preoccupied with some stuffs. Lame excuse, but really. A lot of things happened along the way. Should I continue writing when I don't have anything in mind? You can continue reading if you want to. Hee. So I went to Dayout's wedding last weekend. The journey was simply exciting; or is there any appropriate word to replace that? Great people, good times.

Anyhow, I feel that there are things that I realized had happened to me lately. Some which are at first went unnoticed. But clear enough, they are now a part of me. And here goes:
  1. I can only open my eyes 6.30 in the morning for subuh prayers. It cannot be earlier than that. I'll wait until the alarm clock rings, then only my brain will start to function.
  2. It's pathetic that I have to sleep after the prayers and wake up later at 9 am. My classes starts at 10 every day, so I find no reason to stay awake and do nothing. Stupid.
  3. I stopped singing in the shower. The reason being is that I spend less time in it. Tehee.
  4. I've turned out to be a morning person. Lol.
  5. I'll spend about 10 minutes to think of what to wear to class everyday, and sometimes decide to change if I suddenly feel like not wearing that baju that day (pdhal dah siap nk ke kelas). Freak. Though decision to be made, I don't have many choice there in my closet. Hee.
Well that's all I can think about at the moment. To Ayu, if you're reading this, you'll probably think that this is an all-or-nothing post. But as much as I want to write, my brain does not let me to. And thanks for the wonderful journey. Smiles.

Till then. Have a great day

P/s: I need to go home (yg jauh sgt tu). Lol. Craving for cempedak goreng.

Where should I go to?

Since Teaching Practice is just a heartbeat away (sigh), I need to make up my mind and decide the school, district, and state that I want to go to. Discussions with THE parents went no where; but it left me undecided and I wonder if you people who cares to read, will at least give me a way out.

We'll go through each state.

- born and raised here. Familiar with most of the districts. So you can campak me wherever.
- mama: if you do your teaching practice here, you don't have to rent house, do your laundry and cook.
- ayah: i don't mind sending you to school everyday. (reasons not to give me a car, haha)
- won't have to think much if I run out of money. Mobile ATMs are around. :)

- don't know who wants to do practicles here. Most ppl opt for Melaka.

Negeri Sembilan.
- easy to go back home. If I apply for Seremban, can go back naik KTM. Ok lah tu! ;p

- ?

- A lot of people are going to Melaka.
- I can have a new 'air'. Haven't had the chance to stay for a long time in Melaka, except for school/ family trips
- ?

- Life would be difficult without wheels.
- Would spend a lot on a lot of things.

So whats the verdict? Maybe you can give me a little help here. I have all the reasons in the world to make my own decision, but I would have to admit that I'm indecisive. Do I really have to make an entry about this, ever? Go figure. People might say I'm exaggerating. But my freaking degree is determined by this freaking teaching practice. Darn.
