Life's Brief Candle. [3rd Sem!]

السّلام عليكم
PEACE be upon YOU! ;)
 Life's brief candle? NO NO NO. i'm not going to write about Shakespeare's greatest poem or whatsoever related to him. If you came here for that particular literature purpose, then you're on the wrong track anyway. :'D
What am i going to write is about my current life at uni in this third semester. Ohh, how fast time flies!
Nothing much changed, i'm still staying at SP4 college, the different is just that i've being 'dumped' from level 2, up to level 5! WOW! What ever it is, i'm still thankful that i could still stay in college. save cost + save time. ;)
And yeah, this time i've got the so called 'master bedroom' back, like i used to get in Sem 1. In Sem 2 i got the 'Living Room' instead, which made me envy my housemates' extra large study table. HAHA.
but towards the end of Sem 2, i somehow kinda enjoy staying in living room even though my stuffs are exposed to the rest of the other 7 housemates and i've got lack of privacy to changing clothes and doing anything, but i'm getting used to it. Hmm. :)
And not to forget, my current roommate is Azureen Zainuddin, who's also my current classmate!
this is my current crib!

Other than that, my classmates are mostly still the same faces i've been meeting since Sem 1. Unfortunately, Kak Iz is no longer with us, she decided to quit with her own personal reasons. How sad someone who used to be so supportive towards me and many others have lost from our sight in Beting now. :'(

While the rest are still being the same pretty souls i've known before. I'm just grateful that i've got the chance to get to know each and every one of these people. They've taught me the lessons of life.

Besides, i've got to know better a girl who seems so strange to me back in Sem 1, Nur Azreen Adnan. HAHA. I could still remember i never talked to her back then. Plus, I heard quite a few rumors bout her, but since those rumors doesn't harms me at all, then why not i give it a try to be friends with her right? I gotta stop being judgemental! So, one fine afternoon, I somehow had lunch with her together with Amira Shakila. We had quite a long chat, and we get to know each other little by little each days since then. The ironic part was that she asked me to accompany her to go back to KL last weekend. And i accept the offer even though i've known that i was just her 'second choice'. [sedih tak ayat? LOL!]. On our way back home that night, we discovered that both of us have got a few interest in common within that 2 hours journey. Not just a few, but i can say there's pretty much common between us. ecehceh~ :P Unfortunately, we involved in an accident on our way back to college the next 2 days. :O Yet fortunately, we're both safe. Just the car seems terribly broke down. HAHA. Her parents sent us back to college that evening. Both of the parents treated me very well, and she kept on saying Sorry all the way. I was kinda touched by that. kikiki~

About the lecturers, they're all seem so nice so far. Especially my BMD101 lecturer, Miss Dai Jinghui. She's just too cute! and the way she interact with us, the way she play with the marker pen, the way her chinese accent sounds like, everything about her would always remind me of my Physic teacher back in Form 4, Sir Ong. ;D While the other lecturers, Mdm Zuraida, Mdm Azizah, Sir Nawir, Ustazah Wan Kamariah, and Sir Iskandar, i strongly believe that they're are all experienced lecturers. ;)

The passions of mine are still goes on this semester. I still hunt for unique plants and insects or what ever weird creatures to be captured, doing arts by drawing on my friends' handphone covers, eat, eat, eat, and eat at late night. As seen on my previous entries, i often post pictures of unknown species, here's another unknown plant species which the 'fruits' look like a combination of baby tomatoes and pumpkins. NICE! Last time, we decorated Eddy's phone cover with the Union Jack design, but this time Lyeanna requested me to draw on the tribal designs on her phone cover. YES, it doesn't really look like tribal design much. Put the blame on me! coz i didn't googled for the images first. heh. Last but not least, i had just discovered that "Biskut Jari" [finger biscuits], is a very good accompany of Campbell's soup. Mmmm~ Mmmm~ I actually never tasted the biscuit before, it's the first time i tried it and i kinda like it. :)

The most interesting part is that, i registered for Mandarin class this semester! YEAY! After 19 years living in the chinese neighbourhood, now only i discovered the real way to pronounce my name in Mandarin, which is "Fating Suliyani Apayin". When i was little, my neighbours often mistakenly called me as "Datin". LOL!

Oh ya, recently i borrowed a book from library entitled "Happy for No Reason : 7 Steps to Being Happy from the Inside Out". It's obviously a self-help book written by Marci Shimoff, the co-writer of Chicken Soup for the Soul series. Whooohoo! I'm still in progress of completing reading the book, but somehow it has already changed my attitude and way of thinking little by little. :') Previously i had once bumped into some random people's quotes which are "the more people you deal with, the more shit you'd get" and "the person who always cares for everyone and tries to keep them happy is always the loneliest person in the world", but Marci Shimoff has proven it's all wrong.
I highly suggest the book for everyone. Indeed, it's a pretty effective book. I've decided to use this book as the main reference for my term paper assignment project for BEL311. Me and my project partner, Bella had shown the book to our lecturer, Sir Nawir and he gave us the green light to proceed on the topic. yeay! :) Hope we both can produce a very good outcomes towards the end of the project. Amin.
Oh btw, i'd love to quote my lecturers phrase, "You are nobody, but you" (Ahmad Nawir Abu Amrin, 2012). It's such a meaningful phrase indeed! but it would always made us burst into laughter every time he said it to the class. Coz we're pretty sure that this saying is actually inspired from the KePop song "I want nobody nobody but you~". One word, Brilliant!

Among the quotes in the book which i like most so far are : 
"If you don't like something, change it. If you can't change it, change your attitude. Don't complain." - Maya Angelou.

“We are disturbed not by what happens to us, but by our thoughts about what happens.” — Epictetus.

The sad truth is that as long as you say, ‘It’s my mother’s fault, my husband’s fault, the government’s fault, my sixth-grade piano teacher’s fault…’ you won’t be happy.”

“You become the average of the five people you associate with the most.” — Jim Rohn. 

Thus, that's all for now, till then, c ya! :D.
