Frustrated

Frustrated I am,

But it is not to you, but to me

Myself who thought,

Have put a lot of effort,

The result just does not rhymes,

Let it be untold

Okay fine. Perhaps I am not the best poet. But then again, I realise life must go on. 

11.11am 11.11.11

Yeaps, im studying late night, about 3am in UK time. I’m actually doing my Human factor assignments at late night. The other reason is because I want to stay up late and be able to wish my gf for this memorable day. She pointed out about one of her happiest day in her life during 080808. 

Therefore

Happy 11.11am and 11.11.11. You will always be my baby/wifey/loupo/darling/pig/honey/sweety/gf =)

Love you, sincerely.

Keep holding on

My friend asked me,

How was the trip,

I gave 3/5,

4/5 if the weather is nicer

5/5 if she is in the trip

Though I went for the trip,

with 6 girls,

they are wacky and fun, but

Most of the time, I’m just thinking of you.

special day

That special day is here again.

The day we took our vows.

You are just as special to me today.

As you still get me aroused.

Happy 3year 4 months Lover. =)

Stumble a great song sang with nice lyric by a overshadowed singer, Ron Pope! Emotional song that reflects me

Aberdeen Freshers Week

Ever since I am in Aberdeen, it has been great with activities. Almost every single day when I arrived, I had a little task up on my schedule such as getting done my University documents, meetings with advisers, buying the required stuff and etc. But it was not all about work as having a social life has great importance to me. The first day I came, I met a lot of awesome people like my flatmates. Although there were just 3 of us, Gabriel my American flatmate and Theron my China flatmate are really getting things together. 

Surprisingly, I went to church for a few times for this week. Although I’m a free thinker, I do not really restrict myself to join the church activities and it was really great fun. I enjoyed the most for Ceilidh dance which is the traditional Scottish dance but too bad I didn’t record it. 

Well, quite a good start for me and everything seems to be going smoothly. This coming Tuesday would be a first lecture and like many others I am really enthusiast for the coming studies. 

The journey in London

Journey to London from Kuala Lumpur takes approximately 12-13 hours of air flight. My mum bought the air ticket like a year ago and it was Rm 715 inclusive 2 international meals. Pretty good deal huh? Yeap, there is always ‘Udang di sebalik batu’ or a catch in this kinda cheap stuff. 

1. Isle are very narrow 
2. The seating are small
3. Not much Leng Lui flight attendant
4. The flight shakes alot

I had barely anything to do except sleep on the plane. If I were to stay awake, I feel quite nausea. When I successfully checkout from the Stanstead Airport, it was already 10.20pm which I planned to overnight in the Airport. The pain in the ass is that there are no free wireless internet connection which makes even harder for me to contact back to Malaysia. The only option is to SMS which cost about RM2.00. Donny a classmate in undergrad had the same flight and he too plan to overnight in the airport. So this makes a lot easier when we wanna go for toilet or walk around. Till the next day, he took a train to Nottingham while I took a coach to Heathrow Airport which subsequently meet up with my Aunt.

The north most and Ulu place in UK. ABERDEEN! Guess I’m going to freeze my ass off  during Winter. According to Wikipedia, the lowest temperature is a whooping -18 degree C.

A lonely journey..

Why does the post sound so melancholic? Out of 27.6 million Malaysians there will be less than 100 of them in University Of Aberdeen and soon I will be one of them. I had checked the university list of society but there are non for Malaysian Society. Close to it was International society, Thai Society and also Chinese society. Furthermore I tried many ways to search and even googled for Malaysian in Aberdeen and all I got was Malaysian Student Aberdeen Association (MSAA) and also its Facebook group which lack of updates. After you had click on the links, you could imagine how inactive Malaysians were there. I shall be telling with a sigh..

Well, I had already received my offer letter from University of Manchester but why  did I chose University of Aberdeen instead of Manchester? Firstly, there were my cousin sister who is working in Qatar for an oil and gas recruitment firm. She strongly quote that University of Aberdeen is the best place and most O&G recruiter would dig them out. Aberdeen is located in a major oil hub near the north sea and Aberdeen has very good record for Engineers in the industry.

But the main influence is still the poem “The road not taken” by Robert Frost. His ideology to me were very inspiring. If anyone who had not read about it, click here to read. The message behind the poem is about him (Robert Frost) who had looked into his past life making a life changing decision to choose which career he wanted to be in. He chose the less people had gone through career (Poet) and in the end he gain reputable recognition and success with his poem. It relates because I am not studying Oil and Gas engineering but Safety and Reliability Engineering. The obvious majority choice would be Oil and Gas Engineering but I took the other. 

So what is Safety and Reliability Engineering? To my fellow engineers who are reading, it is a set of advance Safety Engineering that you might had learn. FMEA, HAZOP, HAZID, human factors and etcs. Surely, I do not fully understand about it yet but its certainly about preventing or reducing the disasters risk in industries such as explosion, fire, poisonous gas leakage, lost of products or etc. This course is pretty unique with its strategic Aberdeen location, it has a dip in oil and gas industry.

The feeling of going to this new place were simply mixed up. Perhaps this is one of the most crazy decision that I had ever made in my life. Going to an unknown place without friends, non familiarize society, 10,000 km away from home, doing everything thing by my own, being the minority or even being the only Malaysian in classes!

At least Frodo has Sam to accompany him to Mount Doom.

On the contrary, I believe this is a very adventurous chapter in my life. The one thing I’m looking forward is to make decent amount of friends there and hopefully I’m not portraying the kind of weirdo to them. Although my main purpose there which is for education purpose and getting a Master, I am eager to have fun and experience the independent live style in western country. Lets just hope it brings more pros than cons in the coming months.
