Masters Graduation day

I had a low profile graduation day on the 12th of Dec in the Sports centre, University of Nottingham. It is more of a reunion with coursemates travel back to Nottingham from their home countries...

Nevertheless, I am so happy that many of my friends from all over the world sent in their best wishes from emails, MSN and many other methods! Really appreciated it! Thank you so much!

Depressed

Depressed... a word I seldom used in my blog, or in my life. But now it always appear in my dictionary.

A few matters that making me depressed... graduate = jobless, Many things that happen in my country until I am wondering whether I should called it my home anymore. Emo, being accused, being pressured by other factors... Too many things to deal with even my to-do list can't finish writing on...

What happen to my country is the sentence that people will ask... I guess you better read it your self in BBC website, and perhaps if you are lucky, can get the scoop in The Star Newspaper...

I prefer to leave the comments to myself as I don't want to be risked of being arrested for speaking out. It is better to be safe than sorry. FREEDOM of Speech?? Well, I don't dare to challenge it here.

I read an article recently from The Star Newspaper.

http://www.thestar.com.my/news/story.asp?file=/2007/12/20/focus/19820231&sec=focus

Truly expressed the feeling of a lot of Malaysians...

I can't help but feel I am not belong there anymore. Yes, I do have loves ones and friends there, but being sentimental will not get me anywhere.

I wanted to RUNAWAY... just like what David Tao sings, runaway runaway, to a beautiful place...

Anyway, think this time around christmas season is just like none than the other solemn and sad Christmas I spent while in home town. Sad, and not magical...

20minutes limit blog post

Ok, this is a quite entry before my Admiral Pie goes awful in the stove.

As the winter approached us earlier than anticipated (or should I say not-anticipated it), the temperature here falling so quick that you don't even have enough time to say "What the Heck!!"

IMG_5510

Early in the morning, you can see frosts in the garden, with vehicles windscreen all covered with it too. I managed to snap a few photos with the frosts on the leaves. Not very successful as the cold weather doesn't help to make my hands steady to snap one in focus.... and wearing just a t-shirt and a short didn't help the situation at all...

fish

Oh ya, and I have the first real fish in england finally.. It is a scottish trout, which tastes real nice... The real fish is by the definition of mine that it is not battered, or served with chips and has real bones.

That's it, my 20mins post... so lame isn't it? haha...

York travel trip 10.11.2007

First time travel to York, The most visited place by tourists in UK after London, are fully crammed with history dating back to the Roman empire. This city has once been conquered by the Romans, then the Saxon Anglos, followed by the Vikings. The is a good mix of building architectural designs of the whole city. One thing to boost is the cathedral which is arguable the largest and most important gothic cathedral in the UK. (some might argue that Canterbury is the most important church in the UK).

Nevertheless, the whole city has an amazing environment, not forgetting the ever friendly locals who without fail made the first move to have a conversation with us! IT is more surprisingly that one british guy speaks malay language to me!

A visit to this city is a must if you are into UK history, loves tea rooms ( but be prepared to wait in a long queue!), or fancy something different than London... Ok now, less words and more photos.... Enjoy the whole photos blog...
