the one with food and lesson learned

Posted by Wan Nur Syazana Wan Mohamad Ariffin at 9:31 PM 6 comments
after the meeting with ICGGS (International Conference on Globalization, Governance, and Sustainability) committee ended, a few of us went out to eat @ Nasi Kandar Beratur. i wanna talk about this particular nasi kandar and the things that happened there. i've been living in Penang as a university student for almost 3 years already and that was the first time i went to eat there. and to tell ya, that nasi kandar is really popular and you literally have to line up (beratur) just to order it. haha. it's original nasi kandar and it tastes good. it's actually one of the few fine-taste nasi kandar i've eaten. the side dish is quite dense and concentrated. and that's whats good about it. compared to other mamak's which the side dishes are quite slushy. huhu... 

see this? the line will be like this for almost everyday. people even waited half an hour earlier (9.30PM) just to buy them. it's quite expensive though. i took nasi separuh, a fried chicken and veges with kuah campur = RM5.50. but it was worth the price anyway. 

when we first arrived there, there was this i dunno how to say, i don't wanna say that he's insane. he wandered around the area and shouted in terms of promoting the nasi kandar. the reason i don't wanna labeled him as a demented person was because deep down inside, he's just like the rest of us. maybe he's gone a little bit out of his mind but who's to say he's crazy? who's to say we're not crazy? people's definitions of crazy itself are subjective. we might think a guy who sleeps on the street, talks nonsense, wears dirty clothes and so on as a crazy guy but what about the guy himself? he might sees himself differently. his world is no doubt different than ours. maybe he's just so deep in his world that he tends to ignore the actual reality. it's his own parallel universe. sometimes i think that maybe one of these homeless guys is an anthropologist. being one of them in order to understand them. but who knows. my friend gave the guy a buck anyway. 


maybe it's like that

then while we ate, a child came to our table. he asked for alms (sedekah). i was really broke and i only had 10bucks in my wallet. i looked at him and he was just a child. this sort of thing is normal. my guess is that the kid has an adult looking out for him and at the same time ask the kid to go out and beg for money (employed beggars). i didn't give any since i myself was broke. my friend again gave the kid a buck. then the kid went to another table. this is where it got interesting. sat the table sat 4 young Malay guys maybe mid 20s i supposed. one guy asked the kid if he had dinner already and the kid hesitated.

"kalau belum makan pergi order, abang bayar" he said

i was like 'woooooowwwww'. why didn't i think of that. instead of giving the money, treat the kid a meal. often times, when we give money to someone whose in need, our intentions are good and we wanted them to make the best of it. but sometimes, the money ends up in a place where it's not supposed to. lets say, gambling table, gaming arcade and so on. what the guy did was noble and should i say creative. maybe i can do it sometimes, when my YPJ is in! which it is not in yet and i am super duper broke! ahaha

the one with LG Lollipop!

Posted by Wan Nur Syazana Wan Mohamad Ariffin at 10:37 PM 14 comments
a few entries back, i've written about my dissatisfaction with my Xperia and my fascination over LG GD580 otherwise known as Lollipop. i've given up on keeping up with the latest cellphone technologies. and now i'm focusing on what's more satisfying rather than advanced. as long as i can make some calls, send some texts, listen to musics 24/7, and all other basic things a cellphone should have. being cute and adorable are desirable features and provide extra points to actually buy the phone. anyway,  bought it already. originally, i wanted the pink one but it was out of stocks and it would be a while (lama actually) for the pink ones to come to Malaysia. alas, the red one looks cool and it will nonetheless makes me look more valiant. haha. i love the lollipop from top to bottom! even though it seems a little bit long for my small hand, it doesn't matter! clicking on the keypad let out a bubbly sound. it does that every time you click on any key. the first time i heard it at the kiosk, i immediately fell head over heels for the phone! the LED lighting is just amazing! i can even create my own pattern *which looks ugly btw* haha. the sound is good although the lowest volume is a little loud but good for someone like me *sometimes i'm hearing-impaired* hehe. the menu, font, themes, arrangement of files are just so dainty. it's just so not me! haha! 

i asked for a lollipop as a free gift. she gave me chupa chups lollipop. the kinda lollipop in my mind was this :

haha never mind


the interior of the phone and my free of charge lollipop... hahah

i love my phone and i hoped i made the right decision when i traded my SE Xperia X10 Mini Pro for this... =)

the one where it's unfair?

Posted by Wan Nur Syazana Wan Mohamad Ariffin at 9:01 AM 0 comments
unfair : i experienced it twice today.

and seriously, i got nothing in return! only sheer disappointment!

because of the unfairness of certain things in this world; i look like this right now. angry but still cute.

when i'm angry, i become stressed out. that one strand of the rope left. imagine shattered glass being held together by a simple glue. easily broken. that's me right now. easily broken by pressure.

hence, sleep is always the best medicine in this kind of situation. so, to avoid further unfairness, angriness, and stress, i better sleep. also to avoid me swearing any longer and to reduce my sins, i hv to sleep. 


sweet dreams!!

the one with kinohimitsu

i don't know what else i am supposed to do. these acnes on my face really hurts and it really sucks that i have to wear foundation to conceal them! been to a government dermatologist already and had to take pills and stuff specially for my skin care. after a couple of months, my skin got fairer and less acnes to a point where it got no acne at all. at that time i felt relieved because i finally get nice skin. then i stopped taking my meds because i felt like a lunatic and psychologically-disturbed patient living on medications. plus it must've had side effects since they're drugs. hence, i stopped taking them. few months after it began again. it was madness. now, i'm back on doctor's prescribed medications. it's been almost 2 months but no effects. it's killing me inside out. my roommate suggest that i try Kinohimitsu J'pan Beauty Drink. it's collagen in high concentration. it should work. without hesitation i went out venturing the shopping mall and finally ended up in Watson. i bought it for RM65.90 *6 bottles with 2 free bottles=8 bottles* the usual price is RM89.90 but i guess it's sale season so it was an offer price. yes, expensive if you count in Malaysian Ringgit but not that expensive in Euros. haha. 

i hope it works because it took me quite a fortune to buy this collagen

went to survey for how much i can sell my Xperia for. for the moment the highest i could get is RM400 smthg2. waaaaaa, so cheap. my dad bought it 4 months ago for 1k smthg2 and sell it for 400MYR? soooo cheap~ i asked how much LG Lollipop is worth now. one shop wanted to sell it to me for 820MYR!! it's freaking expensive! since cell phones' taxes have dropped because of 2011 Budget's no taxes for cell phones, it should be around 650MYR-690MYR. but that dude was gonna sell it to me at such an abominable price! another shop said the price was 670MYR = acceptable. but i haven't bought it yet. i need to do a little more surveying with someone who's an expert in this sort of thing. till then!

all of a sudden i hate technologies! the advanced technologies blinded me to the fact that no matter how progressive they are, they still have flaws. now i'm feeling like selling my Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Mini Pro! the Android system it's using of course is really fast and amazing but something about it and because of the state-of-the-art technology it uses made me wanna sell it for a much cheaper and simpler mobile phone! one with no Wi-fi connections! i don't mind coz i already have my iPod if i feel like going on9. seriously, as of this moment, i am texting  my dad and asking his permission to sell it since he gave me this cellphone. sorry abah, but it's driving me nuts! and i know it's driving you up the wall also because of the bills! the bill is mind-boggling, shocking, stunning, and super unacceptable!! the more advanced the technology, the more scarier it becomes! oh, just got a text from my dad. he said to ask the shop owner how much i can trade in my Xperia for. means he's giving me a green light to sell it! haha, thanks abah! love you so much! now i can sleep soundly after hours worrying about this stupid matter! oh, i forgot to say what kind of phone i'm trading it for >>>> it's LG GD580 Lollipop (it's got no wi-fi btw)

my current SE Xperia X10 Mini Pro... sorry, tp kamu menyusahkan saya~

oh.. i want this.. and i want the pink one... if not, i'll get the black one..

even though i am beginning to feel the effects of the growing technologies... i still would not trade my 500D for anything.. it's one of my most priceless possession... =)

the one with the new year

Posted by Wan Nur Syazana Wan Mohamad Ariffin at 12:36 AM 2 comments
this is my first post for the year 2011. but i don't know what to jot down here coz i barely did anything interesting for the past few days. except for new year celebration. it was not like i went clubbing or anything. just walked back and forth at the beach until the clock hits 12AM. then the deafening sound of children's laughing, adults screaming, and techno music blazing through the night were sunken by the loud sound of fireworks going off in the night sky signalling the entrance to a new year. then it became a lot more wilder when people started to scream out of nowhere and jumped ecstatically for no reason. it was fun to watch but not exactly fun for me to do. hence, i just put my eyes as far out as possible and saw how people reacted to new year celebration. even married couples took their kids out for a walk in the night just to see the fireworks. mom and dad used to do that when we were little. they took us to see some car exhibition blah blah i don't remember. the we waited anxiously for the fireworks to light up the sky. haha.. i was darn excited back then to see stuff like that. but i don't think i get excited anymore by the sight and sound of fireworks. hummm, here in Malaysia, when people here the explosive sound of fireworks.. people jumped in exhilaration and joy. but, in countries like Palestine, if they hear some explosion near them, they wouldn't jump or cheers. instead, they would try to find some places to hide and save their loved ones first. so, for me to jump in joy while thinking that some people in some parts of the world are not able to do so would be kinda impolite and make me an ignorant. so, i just watched instead.

btw, happy new year
may this year brings all of you out there happiness and a whole lotta luck!

those up there are all my 2011's new year resolutions! haha

but my main target is to get Dean's List again since this is my last semester. and then graduate with my friends and finally get a job in the Museum *mungkin Jabatan Muzium Malaysia sekiranya ada rezeki. Insyaallah~* i need working experience before i further in Master. 
last but not least, i want to try eating healthy food. i'm gonna try not to skip breakfast *eating Cheerios for b/fast*
lunch with the combination of balanced nutrients
tea time with perhaps an energy bar..
and finally dinner
yes, i can do this!

see this? the line will be like this for almost everyday. people even waited half an hour earlier (9.30PM) just to buy them. it's quite expensive though. i took nasi separuh, a fried chicken and veges with kuah campur = RM5.50. but it was worth the price anyway. 

when we first arrived there, there was this i dunno how to say, i don't wanna say that he's insane. he wandered around the area and shouted in terms of promoting the nasi kandar. the reason i don't wanna labeled him as a demented person was because deep down inside, he's just like the rest of us. maybe he's gone a little bit out of his mind but who's to say he's crazy? who's to say we're not crazy? people's definitions of crazy itself are subjective. we might think a guy who sleeps on the street, talks nonsense, wears dirty clothes and so on as a crazy guy but what about the guy himself? he might sees himself differently. his world is no doubt different than ours. maybe he's just so deep in his world that he tends to ignore the actual reality. it's his own parallel universe. sometimes i think that maybe one of these homeless guys is an anthropologist. being one of them in order to understand them. but who knows. my friend gave the guy a buck anyway.

then while we ate, a child came to our table. he asked for alms (sedekah). i was really broke and i only had 10bucks in my wallet. i looked at him and he was just a child. this sort of thing is normal. my guess is that the kid has an adult looking out for him and at the same time ask the kid to go out and beg for money (employed beggars). i didn't give any since i myself was broke. my friend again gave the kid a buck. then the kid went to another table. this is where it got interesting. sat the table sat 4 young Malay guys maybe mid 20s i supposed. one guy asked the kid if he had dinner already and the kid hesitated.

"kalau belum makan pergi order, abang bayar" he said

i was like 'woooooowwwww'. why didn't i think of that. instead of giving the money, treat the kid a meal. often times, when we give money to someone whose in need, our intentions are good and we wanted them to make the best of it. but sometimes, the money ends up in a place where it's not supposed to. lets say, gambling table, gaming arcade and so on. what the guy did was noble and should i say creative. maybe i can do it sometimes, when my YPJ is in! which it is not in yet and i am super duper broke! ahaha
