#12 BiotechEngineClan

Assalamualaikum

So yesterday marked our last day of week 14 of our third year of study. We decided to do biotech bonding day gittuh. This is the most anticipated event and event that I always look forward to. Yelah dah 2 tahun jadi classmates kan of course all of us feel like "KITA KENA ADA BONDING AND SHITS!" Hahah. 

At first rasa macam tak nak pergi tapi bila tanya Ateh and the gang dorg dah dipaksa pergi pun sebenarnya. Hahaha. Mula2 ingt pergi utk makan je tapi nasib baik the boys ajak main game utk bonding ah. Takde la hambar. Thank you to all yg banyak curahkan effort to make everything tak hambar. Sebab bila aku imagine scenario of the day mcm hambar tapi rupanya tak. Hohoho

Petang semalam aku macam ada mood study so aku study la kejap but then Ateh called ajak pergi beli makanan sbb ni potluck. Bawa makanan or bagi duit je utk kongsi makanan. Mula2 nak rempit pergi KL Fest nak beli donut tp bila lepas maghrib tu plan changed nak cari satay plak. Yulis pon available so naik kereta dia jelah. Seghonok. Hahahah. Mujur banyak satay dkt Greenwood tu ha eventhough satay minang. Sedap la jugak. 

Pastu kiteorg balik uia get ready for the potluck. Sitek whatsapp tanya kiteorg pergi ke tak pastu aku, Ateh, Sarah prank dia kata tak jadi pergi. Nak teman Yulis beli amende tah. Kakakaka meroyan pompuan tu berderet2 mesej dgn voicenotes. Hahahah. Pastu aku mmg dah lapar teruk dah last makan pkul 12 noon. Malangnya sampai2 dorg ni terus nak main game la plak. Kelam kabut. Bising dgn yang lapar nya, benda jadi out of control jap. Ateh pun dgn suara mcm petir suruh makan dulu. Hahahahah. Lepas semua kenyang weols pon main game. 

Game dia semua org kena tulis nama atas kertas, lepastu lipat. Then semua org kena cabut satu nama. Kalau dapat nama sendiri kena tukar. Kalau dapat nama member2 lain kena bagitahu first impression and second impression. Second impression tu mcm lepas kau dah kenal org tu, ape impression kau kt dia. Camtu aa.

Aku dpt Iylia. Huhu honestly aku tak kenal sgt pon Iylia, tak pernah ada conversation sgt pun. Sorry. Hahah. Aku last skali kot aduhh hampir terlelap dah. Pastu syafika dpt nama aku. Dia kata mula2 aku ni garang gila org nya, bila dah lama2 dia ckp aku ni sebenarnya dlm hati ada taman berbunga bunga plak tu di dalam. Kakakak. Ateh menyampuk kata "wey pijah dalam hati ade air terjun kot dlm taman dia" kakakak

Memang pecah perut ah semalam gelak tak hengat. Ateh la paling lawak sekali, aku mmg terhibur kalau dgn dia. Hahahah.

Picture tiiimeee

Semua yg ada semalam sebenarnya baru half of our batch. Aku dah kata kiteorg ramai

With Ateh (in green) and the gang. Tgk tu nk clingy plak


I hope in future ada bbq plak. Ewahhhh. Nnt dah grad kite kena ambil gmbr sama2 okayyy. Toodles!

#11: Throwback To My First Trip To Melaka With Girlfriends

Assalamualaikum

Actually I have so many things to do but I cant hold myself from writing something because of my blog's new template. Hehehe I just changed it yesterday after doing my assignments halfway. I feel so eager to post something gittuh so I'm gonna throwback to my trip to Melaka w my babes. 

I cant remember the exact date but if I'm not mistaken it is during my second short semester. During the weekend of course. So it was back in the middle of 2015. Dah setahun beb. Yknow mana ada masa tulis blog back then. Being me, my mom is not easily give permission to travel out of KL despite being 21. Blerghh typical mom. But this time I dont know why mom let me go. 

So, I went to Melaka with Shasya, Anna and Shera by bus. We took a bus from TBS to Melaka and we arrived there almost midnight. Seram. In Melaka we got to stayed at Shasya's big bro's house. So there was no staying-in-hotel-with-girlfriends' experience. Good because we dont have to pay for anything. We just have to prepare the breakfast. Since we arrived at late night, we were just prepare ourselves to bed. 

Since I cant remember that much, I cant tell this story according to the correct chronology. Berg (Shera's BF) who is orang Melaka yang bawa kteorg jalan2 since he didnt take the short semester. Oh dia jugak yang ambil gambar. Yass. Yang aku ingt kteorg pergi lah dkt Bangunan Stadhuys and other parts of historical buildings cant remember the name though. We play tourist gittuh melawat tempat bersejarah. Lol. So its time for some pictures!
Jemahs trying to take some decent pictures. Lewlz

I dont know why I love to pose like this for a picture. Haha

From left, Me, Shasya, Shera, Anna
Its hard to walk on that sand seriously. I need to shove some of my weight down, Sigh


Melaka is famous for its kampung house with beautiful stairs. Paid RM2 to enter this house. Tuan rumah buat display je rumah dia
Melaka kan mcm banyak tempat2 cantik for taking hipster like pictures so I'm a bit excited to be part of the cool kids Lewlz. Then, we went to Klebang, minum coconut shake Batu Berendam, beraya rumah Berg. OMG his mom is a great cook. Sedap gila semua makanan rasa mcm nak tapau semua. Paling rindu kuih sarang semut omg. 

Hipster la tu?

W the girls

One of the hipster like wall. Lol. But too shy to pose. Bnyk kereta and many distractions and shits

The last day in Melaka kteorg pergi A Famosa Resort. Main air. Seriously lama gila aku tak main taman tema air and FINALLY! Too bad tak de gambar sbb tak terfikir plak nak sewa waterproof phone case. I was just too busy to get into the water. The first thing I play is gelongsor tinggi gila bapak tu. I berlagak gila padahal tak reti berenang. Sampai je bawah aku terus masuk dalam air, lepastu aku panik takleh angkat kepala to breathe padahal air cetek je. So lifeguard pon selamat kan aku. Perghh malu gila. Kena gelak lepas keluar dari air. Hahah bodoh.

My favourite is giant doughnut. Biar lah beratur panjang pon bila dapat main mmg puas hati gila. Hahaha aku mmg excited benda2 extreme ni. Sekali main mmg kata tak nak main dah bila main dua kali mmg addicted. Apart from playing games yg mcm gelongsor tu we were on the pelampung relaxing our mind and follow where the water takes us. Hahah. Masa nak balik tu kteorg dah siap2 solat sume. Surau dia seram tapi asalkan boleh solat its ok. Bila dah petang nak balik tu ingtkan nak ambil teksi, tp Shasya kata abang dia boleh ambilkan. Then kteorg tunggu la lama kat situ. Teksi ada offer nak hantarkan tp kteorg still tunggu abang shasya dtg. Tak lama lepastu abang dia call kata maybe lewat sbb jem. Ah sudah. Teksi yg offer td tu pon takde dah. Resort semua dah tutup and kteorg tunggu smpi gelap. Pekerja semua dah balik. Memang lama gila la tunggu abang dia. Mujur kteorg 4 org. Tapi still seram. Dalam pkul 9 gitu abang shasya smpi jemput kteorg balik pastu belanja makan. Huhuh. Lepas makan tidur lah ape lagi penat kot. Esoknya nak balik KL dah. Sampai KL terus balik UIA lah penat gila. Tapi seronok lah weekend aku function. Hahaha

The giant doughnut looks like this where you'll slide to the highest part of it and you'll scream your lungs out 
I look forward for many trips like this. Perhaps travelling outside Malaysia next time? Because I want to create memories with my friends when I still can. I want to keep our teenage memories forever.  Because yknow. In friendship, we are not going to be together all the time forever. Shit happens and you will eventually have to go in separate ways, being busy with life and different obligations. But being in separate ways doesnt mean you putus sahabat or something like that. Its just that you have different pathways. Right? 

Banyak lagi perkara yang aku belum achive dalam hidup ni macam skydiving, travelling to Iceland and aurora haunting. For now, I'll just have to complete my assignments and survive the last week 14 of my third year. Next year is going to be my final year. I hope I can survive engineering school. Gotta wear that turqoise jubah with maroon scarf though. Wish me luck! Till next post. Toodles.

#10 IIUM: Planning your Schedule for Preregistration

Assalamualaikum

Since I have nothing to do now, nak bagi tips utk IIUM students yg newbies tu. Hehehe. So, since you guys akan masuk main campus to further your degree, there are something yang korang kena tahu and one of it is planning your schedule. Plan schedule penting utk elakkan clashes ok. 

1) Planning Your Schedule

I think all universities are having the same system which is students can plan their schedule freely. Unlike in cfs, korang punya schedule and classmates akan ditentukan, in main campus korang boleh pilih subjek, waktu malah lecturer yg korang suka according to your preferences but of course limited to the offered particulars okay. So, benda ni semua akan dilakukan online. Korang akan BEREBUT dgn semua students yg sama level dgn korg. Kalau korg first year, korg level 1. Sebab apa aku uppercased word berebut tu? Sbb kau mmg akan berebut section mana yg kau nak masuk sbb masing2 ada section yg dorg nak sbb nk sama kelas dgn member and regardless what excuses korg mmg akan berebut. Biasanya system open pukul 12 malam. SHARP. Kau lambat 10 saat, SECTION CLOSED. Ini serius. 

Setiap courses yang ada kat uia, akan ada study plan. So as for engineering students, korg boleh tgk kat sini. Click on your COURSE > FIND OUT MORE > DOWNLOAD PROSPECTUS. So korang boleh tgk subjek apa yang perlu korg ambil dari first year sampai fourth year. Ni yang latest pny sbb ade bnyk subjek dah tukar nama dgn code. Lepastu ada 3 jenis study plan based on matric number. Lol. So, utk yg baru masuk tu, tgk study plan 151XXXX and above ye. 

Choose your course or majoring


Based on my plans, bila dapat je academic calendar, korg boleh tgk la bila tarikh start cuti,exams and pre-registration(prereg) for next semesters's subjects. Biasanya boleh dipercayai lah tarikh2 tu tapi sem lepas dia dragged. So, aku akan peka bila, course schedule akan keluar dan biasanya keluar dua tiga hari sebelum prereg. So based on study plan yg dah download tadi, aku akan plan jadual aku lepas tgk course schedule kat sini dan aku akan construct jadual aku so that senang nk tgk berapa bnyk masa free aku. Hahaha. 

Course schedule. Choose your course and which semester you're going to do prereg. 


Kalau utk first year, korg boleh lah plan nak kelas pagi ke petang ke sbb subjek2 yg korg amek tu general utk semua engineering students regardless their majoring. So akan ada lebih banyak sections dibuka utk setiap subjek. However, bila korg dah masuk majoring masing2, setiap subjek ada satu atau dua je sections offered since jumlah students narrowed down. 

Plan ni mmg penting for those yg mmg coordinated atau yg suka buat perancangan masa depan mcm aku. Sebab ada je student yg malas nak berebut pukul 12 malam tu. Tapi kalau utk aku, aku mmg akan buat sbb nak tgk jadual aku mcm mana, tersusun mcm yg aku rancang ke tidak etc. Lagi satu, aku kena pastikan apa yg aku plan tu berjalan lancar which means aku kena dapatkan semua section yg aku nak. One more thing, adalah sangat penting utk aku tiada kelas hari jumaat (mmg semua subjek isnin smpi khamis je. Lol. Kecuali seminar, 3rd year subject)

Contoh jadual aku few semesters back. 

Lepas kau dah rancang jadual kau, kau dah plan nak amek section yg mana sama2 dgn member kau, you are ready for the war. Kau kena peka pulak kau prereg bila ikut level kau. Kalau kau follow iium online dkt twitter dan mmg ramai kawan2 uia kau dkt twitter, dkt2 nk prereg tu mmg bersepah announcement siap dgn link website kwn2 kau tadi retweet. So follow la kwn2 uia korg walaupun nnt masuk kelas your friends gonna spit what you've been tweeted on yo face. Lol. I hate it when this happened.

So, khalas about planning schedule. Next kau kena prereg lah tunggu apa lagi. 

2) Pre-Registration (Prereg)

Memang benda yg paling wajib tiap2 sem kena buat dan penting so jgn pandang enteng please. Aku tak nak baca engkorang pny royan dkt facebook iium online ok. Aku dah pesan siap2 ni sbb kau mmg akan berperang utk berebut section. 

So, biasanya prereg start at 00:00 hour sharp kau tak boleh lambat dan jangan lah tidur awal. Kemon, kite student tidur 4 jam je. Lol. Benda paling penting kau kena ada masa nak prereg ialah internet laju. Kau kena jadi org terawal masuk sistem dan prereg dlm 30 saat je utk elakkan traffic jam which will ruin your schedule sbb section closed. Prereg for each level dibuka 24 jam. Lepas 24 jam dia buka utk next level atau all level. 

So, uia ada 3 sem. Sem 1,2,3. Sem 1 (Sept-Jan), Sem 2(Feb-Mei), Sem 3 (Shortsem, Jun-Aug). Dalam sem 1, kau akan prereg utk dua sem, sem 2 dan 3. Kalau kau tgh sem 2, kau akan prereg utk sem 1. So dua kali setahun je prereg ni. Jadual prereg dan segala mak nenek tarikh kau boleh tgk dkt website iium lah.



Lepas kau dpt masuk sistem, ada page kaler kuning. Belah bawah dia ada button 'Add' kau tekan tu. Penting utk kau hafal course code jika kau paranoid seperti aku. Lol. Then akan ada pop up seperti di bawah dan kau masukkan lah kau punya course code and section.



Lepas dah add, dia tulis 'course successfully added'. Dan kau teruskan lah add smpi habis subjek yg kau nak amek. Kalau kau ada dua sem nk prereg, biasanya prereg sem 3 dulu baru sem 2, kau prereg sem 3 lepastu tekan button 'change sem' dan teruskan prereg utk sem 2. 

Kalau section closed, kau boleh tekan 'Available sections' lepas masukkan course code. Tapi jadual kau akan berubah but its better drpd kau kena add manual. Kalau takde dah section available aka section closed, kau add manual je la dik. Walaupun menyusahkan, tp determination utk berada di atas landasan jadual yg betul tu penting. Hahaha. 

Aku rasa tu je kot tips dan nasihat aku. Nak ajar uols tarik subjek mcm tak applicable utk intake baru. Sikit je lah eh aku bgtau. Tarik subjek ni, kau ambil subjek yg tak recommended dlm sem ni, tp sem depan. Which means kau tarik subjek sem dpn masuk sem ni. Lepastu ambil shortsem akan lebih membantu kau ambil subjek2 sem depan sbb ada kosong dlm jadual kau. Aku dah biasa buat sbb aku nk kosongkan final sem aku utk fokus fyp. 

Tp aku perasan, sistem uia dah lain. Dia clashkan subjek level 2 dgn level 3. So kau takleh tarik subjek sem depan2 tu masuk your current sem. Dan lagi satu short semester ni dia nak hapuskan. Maknanya takkan ada subjek offered selain internship melainkan kau request dgn lecturer. That is why it is not applicable for new intake. 

So far aku pny plan dah berjaya kurangkan 6 credit hours dlm final sem aku nnt. Tolong doakan plan aku ni berjalan lancar ye. I have 3 semesters je lagi ni. Last tips which is the most important one, jangan ambil kurang drpd 18 kredit hours. Serious talk. Masa degree kau tak boleh fikir nak relax. Degree life mmg utk buat your life miserable. Mmg mcm bnyk tp kalau kau construct jadual kau ada bnyk masa free. Shortsem tu aku sarankan kau ambil. nak cuti 3 bulan terpulang tp as for me, aku dah ambil setiap shortsem yg ada dan shortsem yg aku ambil skrg adalah yg terakhir sbb next shortsem aku intern. 

I wish you guys all the best and I hope all this tips is useful especially for the newbies. See ya in the next post. 

P/s: All tips is for engineering students but in general it is applicable for all courses. Nak lebih tahu, tny seniors.

#9 IIUM Study Duration

Assalamualaikum

So today I've decided to write about study duration in IIUM. As you all know, IIUM foundation program is different from KPM matrix although both are under Ministry of High Education and both are matriculation program. Kalau korg dapat uia, means that korg dpt foundation and you will have to go to the foundation center(cfs) first. 

IIUM foundation program will provide the students a definite places in the main campus. Thats why higher requirement is needed for those who are not from cfs (direct intake) since the university have limitation in taking new students.

Unlike those who are taking UM foundation prog or KPM matrix, they have to do the second UPU after they finished their matriculation and all of them are scattered into different local university such as UKM or UPM. As for IIUM students, they dont have to do so. They'll eventually enter the main campus (Gombak/Kuantan) depends on the courses if they meet the entrance requirement (exit language)

IIUM foundation students have to sit for English Placement Test(EPT), Arabic Placement Test(APT), Fardu Ain and Tilawah test. All tests will determine your duration of study in foundation. There are 3 types of duration which are 1 year, 1.5 years and 2 years. You have to do well in the tests so that you will not wasting your time taking language courses. 

There are levels of the language courses. For example, for english, there are level 3 (lowest) until level 6 (highest) while for arabic there are two levels only. However, for arabic, this is not applicable for laws or human sciences or ikrhs because they have to learn higher level of arabic language until they enroll into the main campus.

If you are genius, you exampted from both courses, you are entitle for 1 year program. Which means you dont have to take any language courses and focus on the major subjects depends on your course. If you exampted or obtain highest level for one of the language, you can finish your foundation in 1.5 years. And if you didnt exampted both language, you have to stay for 2 years. However, this duration can be change when you do well in the first semester for language. As for me, I exampted from arabic during my first semester and changed my english level from 5 to 6. So I finished my foundation program in 1.5 years only instead of 2 years.

Lagi satu ujian Fardu Ain dgn Tilawah. Ujian fardu ain tu bertulis while tilawah is obviously oral test. I couldnt remember how this works tapi aku kena pergi kelas tilawah dan belajar from basic while my friend didnt have to (aku gagap baca Al-quran dulu). However, dkt main campus tilawah al quran is a credited subject ya. It is compulsory. 

At the end of every semester, you guys will have to sit for EPT and APT again untuk tentukan your next level dan sudah semestinya you'll eventually have to exit language. EPT ni mcm MUET cuma takde listening test je. As for APT, sama jugak. I remember that we have to do oral test in arabic. Tergagap gagap kau. Lepas tu asyik ulang ayat sama je smpi terkulat kulat dpn lecturer. Lol. Kalau kau exit, kau tak perlu ambil language dah. Tapi kalau tak exit korg naik level la. Aku tak pernah pula dgr ada org stuck at the same level but it is not impossible ya. Eventhough dkt cfs subjek language ni takde kredit pon tp dia university requirement. 

This is my own experience back in 2012 ya, I dont know if uia changed the system or not. But I think it isnt. Kalau minimum requirement to enter main campus for all courses tu ada aku dgr dia nk upgrade. Masa nak grad cfs dah ni, dpt rumors engineering students kena achieved minimum B for all subjects. Semua meroyan lah sbb dah final sem kot. There is no way we can change our grade dah. Aku pon ade je dpt C. Tapi alhamdulillah dia implemented in the next batch. Pheww. There are certain cgpa that students need to get to grad from cfs ok. Kalau engineering 2.5

Anyway, if you readers out there who accidentally found my blog while googling, thank you for reading. You can ask me if you dont understand by dropping some comments. Good luck and see ya in the next post. 

4 years ago. How time flies.

#8. #PijahOffMalaysia : Turkey


Assalamualaikum

At the end of last year, my mom and I decided to have a vacation to Turkey. After checking my semester's schedule, there was one trip provided by Kowamas Travel Agency during my midbreak in March. My mom will travel wherever she want every year and as for last year, she's gone for Bosnia and this year Turkey and Europe (end of this year). So, she's willingly to sponsor me (thanks mom. Later I'll sponsor you to Swiss).

However, approaching midbreak, lecturers tend to do midterms and I have to reschedule my midterm of one of the subject bcs I have to fly 18/3 at 0200 and I have midterm on that morning. Nasib baik Dr Yose considerate orangnya. Tak kisah lah midterm dekat nak final pon as long as I can go for my vacation. 17/3 at 5pm I have maths 5 midterm. Lepas habis paper pkul 7 pm tu terus rempit balik rumah nak packing (yes aku tak packing lagiii) sebab nak gerak KLIA pkul 9pm. Mampus.  Bla bla bla I managed to settled down everything and arrived at KLIA on time. Pheww. And of course we forgot things but we didnt realized it yet. My mom and I mmg travel ikut agency je sbb senang semua diuruskan tapi terhad lah tmpt2 lawatan dia sbb kite kena ikut itinerary agency and as usual my group is full of makciks and pakciks sebab mereka ni dah tua baru la berpeluang nak jalan2 gituu. 

I travelled for about 12 hours to Istanbul with 7 hours flight to Doha for transit and 5 hours from Doha to Istanbul. Turkey is 6 hours late compared to Malaysia so I was a bit confused with the timing of solat but we jamak and qasar everything. Yeah! So we arrived in Istanbul at 7am (local time in Istanbul). So we straight to visit all places. I'm not sure I can remember everything or not but I'll try to make it short and simple and I'll put some pictures of course. Heheh

Day 1: 
As far as I remember, as we arrived semua singgah solat but I'm not (Yknow. Lol) and after we got into the bus (ade wifi okay!) and tour Istanbul kot. Lepas jalan2 Istanbul and all, tiba2 dah tengahari so we grabbed our lunch dkt Galata Bridge. Makan nasi dgn ikan. Tbh, I dont really like the appetizers it makes me loss my appetite but since its just the first day, bantai jelah semua kan. Appetizers dia biasanya sup kacang mcm kacang kuda tu or tomato sup (I really dont like the soup), roti keras namati dgn sayuran. 

Tulips everywhere in the city. weee

Then, lepas habis makan kami naik bas pergi ke Bursa menaiki feri. I swear it was so cold and I didnt bring my winter coat bcs I forgot and my mom who packed everything up 2 weeks earlier didnt bring it too sbb dia ingt sejuk mcm dalam office je. Why is my mom liek diss?? Its freezing but it didnt stop me from taking pictures of course. Aku rasa menyesal gak sbb asyik ambil gambar muka sendiri je instead of capturing the scenery. Sigh. 

Hey bro!

Lepastu tak silap aku check in hotel kot. Eeii bosan betul lah. This is the part that I dont like. Letak bontot dlm bas lepastu tiba2 dah malam and then check in hotel. Membazir masa tahu tak? I ranted this to my mom and she said she wants to go to Istanbul again. Wiwiwi

Day 2

The next day in Bursa it is colder than Istanbul and we were wearing one piece of clothes (I'm dying). I asked my mom for sweater or whatever that can make us feel warm. Mak belikan in the next day rasanya. Hehehe. 

So, we went to Bursa Mosque. I didnt pay attention to what has been said by the travel guide, Erhan bcs most of it was about history and I'm dying to take photos je at that time. Lol. 

@ Bursa Mosque w my mom



Everywhere got tulips la deyy


@ Cumalikizik Village

The appetizers that I dislike

Delicious bcs its meat but the rice is too sticky.

When we were on our way to Bursa, there were news about bombing in Istanbul and Ankara if I'm not mistaken. Fortunately we left the city earlier. 

Day 3: 

We went to Pamukkale hot springs or cotton castle. 

Rendam kaki dlm hotspring. Idk why the water made my feet feel itchy. 

The cotton castle is the neighbour of the Hierapolis ancient city.

Yeahh forgot to button my shirt. Lelz
Yeayy I got my sweater.

Day 4: 

We off to Cappadoccia bebeh. Hot air ballon is freakin famous in Cappadoccia. However, my mom and I decided to not have the ride bcs of its crazy expensive price (USD 220). According to those who took the ride, there was no sunrise at that time because it was raining the night before so their objective to see the sunrise wasnt achieved so it was just a waste of money. Lol

The view are supposed to look like this but they werent

 Since we didnt go for hot air ballon, we have to stay in the hotel. Ni aku tak puas hati dgn travel agency. Because, I accidentally found someone's photo who was in diff agency, they got to go to the site to take pictures. Rugi la aku pergi sini sbb ingtkan tak dpt naik boleh la sekadar ambil gambar je rupanya tak. Aku tak reccomend travel agency ni. Menyampah. 

There were so many former cave houses mcm Goreme, Uchisar which formed naturally.

Camel rock (bukan Bretman Rock. Lol)

Makan sini paling sedap. Appetizer dia spaghetti okay!

Mesti ada compulsory places yg kerajaan suruh tourist pergi.
As for turkey, its ceramics and carpet

Derinkuyu Underground City.
Seksa betul aku nak masuk.
How on earth Turkish zaman dulu live in here??

That is tree full of Turkish amulet.
Kalau org melayu depa tuduh agenda dajjal dah pasal nmpk mcm mata satu. Lol

Favourite restaurant bcs they served foods with music. Hehe

Day 5: 

We went to Ankara. Nasib baik isu bombing tu dah reda. There were so many police and the security controls in Ankara was very tight. So we went to Anitkabir, mcm muzium je. Tak menarik pon. I hate museum I hate history so I was just lepak kat luar and was taking pictures with my mom. 

Favourite photo.
Thanks to my mom. Finally! a perfect picture. 

Anitkabir

Hai abam

Day 6: 
Yeay we were in Istanbul again. Climax lah ni sbb nak balik Malaysia dah. So we were in Istanbul for 2 days before going back. Shopping is a must!

Cat in Hagia Sophia

Tulips in Topkapi Palace

Topkapi palace. Grumpy day. Me in red

On cruise from Asia to Europe.
(Turkey is both on Asia and Europe separated by bridge je)

Sultanahmet Mosque. Tgklah aku je yg paling muda. Takde geng. 

Left is Asia, Right is Europe if I'm not mistaken. 

Sultanahmet Square.

Ada street food tu try la tapi tak dijamin sedap since Turkish food is usually bland.
I bought something like this filled with nutella but it was so keras I can lose my teeth. Lol


It is compulsory to try this. Apple tea. 

Hagia Sophia

Shopping activity which was off itinerary.
We went to Taksim for Hardrock Cafe

Spice Market

Spice market ni mmg best and macam2 ada. Compared to Grand Bazaar, Spice Market offers much more affordable price for everything. Grand Bazaar peniaga dia kerek nak mampus tak boleh bargain langsung.

My mom wanted to buy a leather jacket but the price is so expensive. Bila kite taknak beli peniaga tu kejar sambil tawarkan harga murah. Lol. Tadi aku nk beli takde plak nak tawar menawar. Mak aku pon satu, bajet 100 Lira mane dapat murah mcm tu. Lepas tu blur2. Tapi dah nak sgt dia beli la satu after tukar bajet to USD100 tapi jacket tu hodoh. Lol. 

We off back to Malaysia in the next day. Sedihh. Ok now aku nak komen tentang travel agency, Kowamas. Mak aku pilih ni pun sbb dia pernah sekali guna kowamas masa pergi Bosnia. To be honest, aku tak puas hati dengan travel agency ni and aku rasa rugi tak komplen masa dia bagi borang to rate the service. First, aku tak puas hati kebanyakan masa dibazirkan tidur dalam bas sahaja sbb perjalanan sangat panjang mcm dari Pamukkale ke Cappadoccia tu about 500km. So, I didnt suggest to them for next trip mereka kena compensate lah pembaziran masa tu dgn penambahan satu hari lagi. We didnt pay to waste our time in the bus. Since we were tired, jetlag pon tak berabis mmg lah tidur je instead of enjoying the scenery. 

Tapi nak tak puas hati pun, bayar package murah sikit drpd travel agency lain. Kalau guna duit aku, of course aku akan tambah je beberapa ratus to get more satisfying travel agency services. But since my mom tanggung semua aku telan jelah ketidakpuasan hati tu. Next time no more Kowamas kot. Second, according to my mom, tour guide kali ni kurang mesra compared to yg dia dpt masa pergi Bosnia. Maybe sbb org muda kot. Harap handsome aje lah. Lol. But he's fine. 

However, I am so glad my mom and I can get along with those who were in the group because my mom is friendly but I am not. Sampai sekarang pon they all still keep in touch dkt whatsapp group. Siap plan lagi lepas ni nak pergi mana. Orang2 tua ni semua mmg frequent traveller la mcm mak aku. Eventhough its just once a year, I considered that as frequent. 

Some of the makciks and akaks. Haha

I think thats all for now. See ya in the next post ya. Bye~
