As usual, I'll write a summary of my year.

What can I say about 2011? I've been trying to recall what happen for the past year. I've been looking at my facebook picture albums and my blog posts. I can say, 2011 is pretty mediocre. Nothing really super major happened. I was pretty happy this year and I can say money wise is also quite good. I didn't go bankrupt like last year. :-P

I had the best birthday surprise ever! I was just in awe. :')

The downside was 2011 is the year where I had the most break ups. I think. I lost count how many times we broke up this year and we also had 1 serious break up. Yeah, he's all stressed out with I don't know what exactly. Maybe it's the final year thing, maybe financial stuffs. Not so sure, but we had a major big fight and ended up with a break up. He dumped me. Then there was another break up where I dumped him because I was just disappointed with the time we're spending with each other. Yeah. I'm pathetic like that. In my mind was, I wanted to spend as much time as possible in the final year in Moscow with him but in his mind was, he wanted to make me to spend as little time as possible with him as practice for the next semesters without him. There was a time also, where he asked to be separated for a month. I was like, "ARE YOU KIDDING ME?! A MONTH?!!". Yeah, we always have our disagreements like this. So we ended up breaking up. And making up again after 3-4 days. That's love for you I guess. You can't spend too much time together, but you can't spend time apart longer than a week. Confusing much? Tell me about it... Oh yeah! there was also that break up where he decided he didn't want me to perform for MASSAD, 2 weeks before the event. Like WTF right? I practiced for almost a month, and he decided I can't dance 2 weeks before the event. But everything turn out ok in the end. Thank God!

Another was that my dad had a stroke. Alhamdulillah, he's all fine now. Although he does complaint about his left hand being weak and having some short-term memory loss. As long as he knows who he is and who we are, then that's good enough. I miss him sometimes. I called him for his birthday last week, but both of us don't have that father-daughter relationships like most people do. It was the most awkward call ever!!! Seriously. I almost felt regret for calling him. Might have just sent him an sms instead like every year. >_<"

Summer was fun. In Moscow, in Italy and in Malaysia. It was just a perfect Summer and also I got to spend Aidilfitri at home after 6 years spending it abroad. =)

Hrm... what else? I guess, that's pretty much the highlights of 2011. I can't really think of anything else. It's pretty mediocre. Right?

Shall I call 2011 - The Break-up Year? ;-P

So lets see what I've accomplished in 2011. View last year's post HERE.


  • I still want to settle all my exams on time. I did settle all my exams on time. ;)
  • Travel to all the places in my GRAVITY post. But I doubt that I can travel to all those places in 1 year. :P Yeah. I didn't managed to travel to all those places in ONE YEAR but I went to one of the list which is ITALY! and I'm going to Morocco at the end of this January!
  • Mengaji at least 1 ayat per day. I really want to accomplish this! I went from 1 ayat per day to 1 page per day. I'm actually quite proud with myself. ^.^
  • I need to let things go. I can't keep brooding over things that upsets me! I actually tried. but it's not as easy as I thought.
  • Be patient. Always. It's the same for this one too! I'm actually even more hot-tempered than usual! -_-"
  • Don't bother so much over other people's problems. They didn't ask me to solve it. I can't stand people who don't solve their problems. I know it's their problems! but why can't they solve it?!!! I can't help solving it for them.
  • Live freely and happily! HAHA. I'm living quite happily, but freely? not so sure about that. :P
  • Loose weight or at least get a slim curvy body! :P BIGGEST FAILURE EVER!
  • Keep saving money. Buy GOLD! :D I can say I'm quite proud with this. I did bought 1 gold coin, and I've been saving quite well too. ;)

4 out of 9.. haha.. that's actually quite bad isn't it? :-P Hope I'll do better with 2012's resolutions! So here goes;

  • Pass all my final year exams and GRADUATE! Please pray that I'll graduate this year. 
  • Travel as much as I can before work starts
  • Study as preparation for work.
  • Khatam the Quran. Or at least reach until half.
  • Be more patient, be more understanding, let things that upsets me go, be more humble.
  • Be mentally prepared for work.
  • Have fun in my final year in Moscow.
  • Go to every metro station in Moscow.
  • Watch ballet show at the Bolshoi Theater.
  • Keep saving money!
  • Have that slim curvy body before I go back to Malaysia. 
  • Be an awesome HO. (that's just a wish! I have biggest doubt I'll ever be awesome. Not in the beginning anyway.)
I hope I'll achieve everything next year! I've never really had a 100% success on my resolutions.. :-P

Let it Snow

It was snowing non-stop for almost a week. Yesterday it stopped in the morning, and a blizzard came in the afternoon. I couldn't pay attention in class looking at the snow outside the window. I was scared to endure it, and boy was I right to be scared. I couldn't open my eyes while walking. I was walking in the blizzard with my eyes closed! It was so horrible! I was convinced if I stood for more than 5 minutes, I'll be a snowman.

But the temperature went up above zero today, and all the snow was melting. Weird, weird weather we have this year..

Anyway, here's another sneak peek of where I'm going this winter. Hope you guys can guess it! ;D

FIRST STOP (this is where we needed the visa):





Tomorrow is the last day of school! yeay! but exams are less than a month away... >_< aduh. tak sabarnye nak berjalan! 

Will start on my 2012 resolutions soon. I can't believe we're only a few days away from new year. Time flies by so fast. This will probably be my last resolution post, as I don't think I would have time to update my blog that much once I start working. I hope it won't be the last though. ;)

oh December, why are you so cruel?

So many unfortunate events happened in December.

There were so many people pissing me off, that I actually felt like blowing something up.. Fardia gave the idea: balloons. LOL! maybe. I think Pissing Anna off in December in an annual thing, because there was so many people pissing me off last December that I actually posted Lets Piss Off Anna Month. Let's see what will happen next December, then we'll decide if it's an annual thing.

I didn't really want to tell this, but I really need to let it out. My roomate's ATM card got spoiled and she doesn't have any back up account. So I lent her my HSBC ATM card, since my active account is Maybank. All my allowance and transactions are in my Maybank account. HSBC is just my backup account, in case anything happen to my Maybankcard.

So my roomate borrowed it. She transfered some of her money to the account, and I gave her my ATM card. My 'niat' when I did that account is also, if someone card got broken or lost, they can borrow mine. Well, the day happened. So. She asked my pin number. So I told her, and she asked me to repeat the number, I repeated the number, and she repeated the number, and she wrote down the number.

The next day, the messaged me, "anna, your pin number is (e.g) 112323 right?". I was like no. It's 113223. How the hell she managed to mess that up? I totally recall she spoke the correct number.

When I got back home, I asked her. She said she didn't manage to withdraw the money because she tried the number 2 times and got rejected. Yesterday she tried again, and now my card is blocked. *sighhhhhhhhhh.....*

I really don't know what to say. Part of me is actually quite angry at her but part of me is quite angry at myself too for not writing it down for her. She should have called me when it was rejected the first time, she should have shown me the number that she wrote down just to be sure OR I could have written it down for her, or I could have took the money out for her instead of giving her the power of my ATM card. So many what ifs.... but it had happened but I'm still very upset.

I called HSBC today, they said they can't issue a new card here in Moscow. Need to do it back in Malaysia. I thought they were an International Bank? So weird. So now, even I don't have a back up account. aiyaaaaa.....

Lets just hope nothing will happen to my maybankcard.

What surprises me yesterday was, MY ROOMATE STILL MANAGED TO GO SHOPPING!!!! She brought back 5 big shopping bags; including new handbag, new shoes, new clothes, and I don't know what else is in that bag... HOMAIGOD...

Thank God I only have 6 more months. My roomate is the most gullible and naive person I have ever met. You wouldn't even think she's 24!

The only good thing that happened this December is my sister's awesome 7A1B PMR result and our visa is on the way. I need a break from Moscow. *pening*


  4. BUY A STUDENT TARIFF SIM CARD. So you don't have to topup your phone every 3 months or change your number every  year. It'll be easier to get the TAC number too.

Winter Solstice

It finally snowed in Moscow. Non-stop for 3 days now. The snow outside are like 30cm thick or more! I'm convinced if I stood still for 5 minutes outside, I could be a snowman. The weather has been so weird lately. Snow - Melt - No Snow - Snow again - Melt again - No snow again. We thought it skipped to Spring for a while. :-p

Anyway, the visa for my winter trip is on the way. Finally! Everything was so last minute. It was such a hassle trying to get it and plus with our last-minute-ness. Alhamdulillah, everything is going our way. Also thanks to our Malaysian Embassies. :)

So since the visa is one the way, I'll be showing you a sneak peak of where we're going. We're going to 4 cities. The pictures here are from the 3rd city of the trip.

Can you guess where we're heading? ;)

Also, tomorrow is my dad's birthday. I'm happy he gets to live another year. Yeah, his birthday is on Christmas eve.

Happy birthday dearest Abah. May Allah grant you, your health back and a long life, so you would be able to see your children grow up, work, get married and have kids. And may you be able to see this child become a doctor. hehe. Love you. :')

My roomate is on a massive diet (sort of). At first she looks so determined on loosing her weight (not that she is fat, but she feels she needs to be thin).

So she has this huge lust for sugary stuffs. A big big BIG fan of chocolates and cakes. She can't even keep her hands off my chocolates. I'm not a big fan of sugary stuffs. Sometimes when I'm on PMS I feel like I want to eat chocolate. But once I get home, I'll forget all about the chocolates. I can leave the chocolate inside the fridge for weeks and not eating them!!! She'll always end up finishing them.

Anyway, now she only eats salad. The same kind of salad; Cabbage, Capsicum, Tomatoes and Sardines. She even bought Herbalife. But she can't control her urges to eat those sugary stuffs. Last Sunday night, she baked a cake! She gave to some of her friends, but today I see only 2 pieces of the cake left. And everyday she took one piece of my cookies. hahaha...

She also bought Ice-cream Malaysia which is now being left in the freezer. Everyday she asks me to eat it. But like I said, I'm not really a big fan of sugary stuffs. I love fried food though!!!

Anyway, I feel kinda sad for my roomate. She's so proud of her lust for food, and now she's restricting herself from her pleasure.  Plus, she's not exercising. Like I said, it's not like she's fat.

I don't know why I'm always stuck with roomates who are so weight-obsessed! My previous roomate was actually worst than the current one.

Their life. Oh well....

This is Our Life

Been reading too many blogs lately. HO blogs, MO blogs, Pharmacists blogs.

Every one of them complains. HO complains about the mistreatment of the MOs and specialist, about the WORKLOAD. MO complains about the attitudes of the HOs, about the WORKLOAD. Pharmacists complains about the attitudes of doctors, patients and the WORKLOAD.

People. It's the profession we chose. NO WORKLOAD = NO PATIENTS = NO WORK = NO MONEY.

Yeah. I'm not working yet. So shut up right? hrmm..

I hope I won't complain when I start working. That would be shameful. heh. :-|

Back to December

It's December. Although it's not snowing yet. There was very light snow yesterday though, but it didn't last. Well, the year's about to end. Which mean, I've got to work on my 2012 Resolutions. Which also means, EXAM's around the corner! ERK! >____<

Anyway, I'm in my last cycle currently. 3 weeks of Hospital Surgery. Which will be one of the State Examination this year. The cycle started on Thursday, and our teacher explained to us the exam procedure; from the MCQ to the Oral Test. As I was listening, I can feel all the butterflies flying, crawling, running around in my tummy. This will be one of the toughest exam this year. Not to mention the TWO THOUSAND DON'T KNOW HOW MANY MCQ questions I have to memories and DON'T KNOW HOW MANY HUNDREDS Oral/subjectives/case questions. ERKKKKKK!!! UWAAAAAAAA... this is like blowing my head off or something!! @_____@ I should be starting on those questions now, like some of my friends. They've started like months ago, but as you all know me, I'm always last minute and sometimes I didn't even get to finish the materials and I solely depend on my luck and Allah swt. huuuuu~

Oh well..... (ha-ha~ *nervous laugh*)

Ok, so anyway, I've finished booking and paying the flight tickets for my winter trip. Now that's left is the hostel and we also have to do visa for one of the cities that we're going. I didn't expect that country needs Visa for Malaysian citizens. I was shocked when I found out. I checked it out after paying for the flight tickets. I forgot to check it out beforehand. *sigh* Visa is such a hassle!! Hopefully everything will run smoothly. InsyaAllah. ;)

You guys still won't know where I'm going until next month. Maybe. If I feel generous, I'll tell you by the end of this month. You guys can guess though. heeeee..... ;D

Better Together

We're back together again (sort of). Yeah. So typical of us.

I'm still a bit pissed at him for leaving me alone for a week though. PLUS! he laughed at my previous post. grrrrrrrrr~

I asked him to "declare" his love for me again. He did. I denied it. I don't wanna be with someone who kept breaking up every time a fight comes up. (sort of). :-P

His status with me is "in a relationship". My status is "it's complicated". It's always complicated. Don't tell me relationships are not complicated.

Lagi skali dia mintak break up. Aku break up betul2! Nasib baik sayang. >.<

Gimme A Sign

It's been a week now. I've not cooled down. I actually feel more pissed than ever! I'm not even sure if he's serious about breaking up or not. Because he changed his profile picture of us two in Rome with a very sweet caption. So basically, I'm wondering,


Usually, after a fight, he'll let me be until he has cooled down or until I gave him a sign. Usually, I'm the one who goes back to him. So right now, within this week, I haven't exactly posted anything on Facebook that gives any sign that he can say 'hi' to me nor have I greet him in any way (chat, message, sms or even call). I just act like nothing ever happened. I'm doing my work like normal. Nothing's bothering me. I just want to see how much he actually cares about me, about this relationship.

Obviously I'm confused. Because he broke up with me. And then, he posted a profile picture of US.

I can't say 'hi' to him first. He was the one who dumped me!! I see him online all the time and I didn't even appear offline like I usually do whenever I'm pissed at him. So, what more sign does he actually need? Seriously, what does he think I am? A puppy? A doll? A freakin' cyborg??? sheeesh~!

For him to let me be alone and pissed for A WEEK says that he just doesn't care anymore for this relationship, but a profile picture of US??? wtf dude? get on with it. Why are you so freaking CONFUSING?!! Trying to make me piss off another week. That's so typically you.

When your hormones goes ups and downs.

When everything else fails, and I keep on crying, you'd make it worst by saying "Let's just break up" and hangs up the phone.

How I wish you would just DROP EVERYTHING that you're doing and JUST PAY YOUR ATTENTION to me. All I want is just you and me always,
Give me affection,
I need your perfection..

I'm always 2nd to your everything. I should accept that by now. I really should. It's has been 4 years. But I can't. Because it's not fair.

I know why you can't stand that I cried. I know why you walk away or shut the door or hang up the phone every time tears welled up my cheeks. You can't stand the fact that you're a FAILURE. FAILURE TO ME.

You said, lets continue this another time, I asked you "WHEN? WHEN WILL YOU HAVE TIME? WHEN?!" and YOU SAID, "LET'S JUST BREAK UP" every time things get tough between us. Like it is the easiest thing in the world to do. When you can't figure out what I want, when you can't make the tears stop. It breaks my heart every time, but most time the words don't even have meaning for me anymore. Because you always come back. And I always accept you back.

I wish you knew, all I wanted was you. And I can see that you just can't give me you. You asked me to understand your situations, but you don't understand OUR situation. MY SITUATION.

Kau tak pernah cuba memahami aku
Cinta kau ucap tak pernah engkau tunjuk
Dan bila tiba saat ku kehilangan
Beban yang tak pernah cuba kau ringankan...

Maybe you'll come back like always when you've cool down. Maybe you won't. Maybe I'll be here like always. Maybe I won't.

My cousin asked me if I have any single friends to match-make with one of her friends. So I gave a few names with their facebook profile.

After a while she said, 'better with no tudung(hijab)'. I LOLed. I mean like, really?

I wonder why is it so important about the girl's attire. Whether she wears a hijab or not. Even for my brother (the older one). He likes girls with no hijab. When asked "why?", he said he doesn't like girl with curly hair. So, he's like, "if she covers her hair, how would I know if she has curly or straight hair?".. Right. what if she straightened her hair?? hrmmm...

Well, anyway. I see that not all guys like and want girls who cover their hair. Or maybe they're like mine. Being with a free-hair girl, and kept asking, "when are you going to cover your hair?". That is just so freaking annoying. But I don't think my bro is like that. He never said anything to my mom about her not wearing hijab even though she's 50 years old.

Whatever said, men are shallow. Doesn't matter if the girl is covering her hair or not. In the end, all they want is a pretty face. And later find out, that you need a pretty heart to go along with it too. Pretty face first though. Never the heart. Then when the girl breaks his heart. tadaaaa.. yeah. That's what you get for being shallow. cheers~

There has been a lot of great dates in this millennium. Today is a Sunday. One of my friend got married today. I'm sure there're more wedding today. Just like on 11.11.11. huhuhu...

I've nothing write actually. I have a lot of stuffs on my to-do-list that need completing. But as you know, how I love procrastinating, especially when I'm in front of my laptop.

Current mood: mellow, lazy
Current playlist: Yuna Zarai

The sun is out. I wish I want to go out. But I think I'll be staying in this weekend. I'm pretty lazy and tired.

I need to do my laundry and just found out that the washing machine broke down. Looks like I have to hand wash my laundry now.. >.< adehhhh... everything just has to happen when you're already in your final year.

Pink Sky. A day before the snow came.

Anyway, I've just finished planning for my winter break trip. You guys just have to wait to know where I'm going. Hopefully everything turns out as plan. If not, I might just spend another winter in good ol' Russia. :))

Obedient Wives Club

My non-muslim friends are circulating this video in facebook. I'm totally saddened by the fact that this club does not understand the concept of polygamy and misinterpreted the Holy Quran. I can't help but feel like, it's giving Islam a bad name, even though their intentions are good.

How did women fall down so low when we are given the higher degree by Allah s.w.t? There are even a Surah dedicated to women in the Quran. Surah An-Nisa' which means "The Women". Every single welfare of women are written in that Surah. How noble are we women to be given such recognition by Allah swt? 

What does the non-Muslims think about this? Of course they think it's stupid. I wish they'd understand our religion. I wish they'd understand that Islam is not stupid. I wish they'd understand how Islam gives nobility to women. I wish they'd know that this video does not convey Islam.

"And if you fear that you cannot act equitably towards orphans, then marry such women as seem good to you, two and three and four; but if you fear that you will not do justice (between them), THEN (MARRY) ONLY ONE or what your right hands possess; this is more proper, that you may not deviate from the right course." 
(AlQuran; Surah An-Nisa':3)

O you who have believed, it is not lawful for you to inherit women by compulsion. And do not make difficulties for them in order to take [back] part of what you gave them unless they commit a clear immorality. And live with them in kindness. For if you dislike them - perhaps you dislike a thing and Allah makes therein much good. 
(AlQuran; Surah An-Nisa':19)

Polygamy are created to take care of women's welfare. The verses in the Quran stating that polygamy is accepted was received by the Prophet Muhammad S.A.W due to the fact that there were plenty of widows during his time and they were at war. Muslim men were allowed to take these widows as their wives in order to provide and take care of them.

I hope the men as well the people who created OWC can see this. May Allah swt show us the way. Amin...

Circle Of Light Festival 2011

I absolutely forgot to update about the Circle of Light Festival, which was held from 21st October 2011 to 23rd October 2011 at Red Square and Gorky Park.

I found out about it by accident, because we were supposed to have a batch photoshoot at Moscow State University and Red Square on Saturday, but the photographers(the almost professionals one, they're my batchmates as well. Not the hired one) asked if there were any event going on in Red Square that we might interfere with. So I was googling around and found out about the event.

The photographers wen't straight after our batch photoshoot. They invited me to come along, but I was too tired and cold. So I didn't go along.

It was until they posted it on their facebook the pictures they took that night was I really regretting it. It was so beautiful!!! And I was asking around if anyone wants to come along with me.

In the end, I tagged along Tita, Aznira, Iqa, Elyn, Dalila, Syafiqah and Afif. We went the next day. hehe..

It was a fun night in deed! Something different with different set of people. They were really outgoing and awesome.

The whole Red Square is set up with lights and surround sound systems. It almost felt like an Alien Spaceship is coming down to land, invade or abduct us!!! >___<

But some of the songs they played, were so romantic, I felt sad that bB wasn't there. There were a lot of couples kissing under the night sky, full of light and music. Argh! I'm jealous! >__<

Anyway, I had a really fun night. Too bad I missed the Closing Ceremony at Gorky Park. We were lazy to walk to 2 places in one night. My friend said, it was the most spectacular fireworks they had ever seen! They synchronized the fireworks with the music. I can imagine how awesome it must've be. I really hope they'll be more awesome events like this in Moscow. I'm really sad to say this is my final year. Here's some photo.

Us, with some friends with MSMU. I looked like I had the time of my life! ;D 
(My friend's awesome photographic skills)

More photos and videos in my facebook!

and here's more photo on the Opening Ceremony (which I also missed) and Closing Ceremony.

Here's a video of the event I found from their website. This is the opening ceremony. The day I went it was almost the same as this. The only difference was there was no one dancing on the stage and there were full of people in the Square. Enjoy! :)

Once a Century

It's that date that everyone wants to make it into something special.

Nothing special for me though. Although, I got a cheque from bB for RM1111.11! Weeeeee! (He's paying back the loan I gave him. bayaran hutang ye kawan2. bukan wang tunang, bukan wang hantaran nikah, bukan nak beli cinta, bukan saje2. Bf saya tak cop duit. tapi ada extra bonus ah sbb dia nak bagi nombor cantik :-P)

And also today is my groupmate Sasha's birthday! So we had a little celebration at Daigon after class with Shantina and Anusya. Lovely place with excellent food! Yummmm... ;)

Also.. We're gonna have a "cake cutting ceremony" at 11:11 PM tonight at her place. Awesome. ;D

I have been reading the Quran with it's tafseer(translation) since new year. It was one of my resolutions to read at least ONE AYAT A DAY. But I've been getting better, Alhamdulillah and been reading A PAGE A DAY.

It used to be so difficult reading the Quran. But I'm glad it's getting better, and I hope it won't get worse.

So far, I've only read until Surah Al-Nisa. And I really love it. Is it because I'm a feminist? haha. Not really. This ayat from Surah Al-Nisa really captured my heart.

"Dan Allah hendak (membersihkan kamu dari dosa dengan) menerima taubat kamu, sedang orang-orang (yang fasik) yang menurut keinginan hawa nafsu (yang diharamkan oleh Allah itu) hendak mendorong kamu supaya kamu menyeleweng (dari kebenaran) dengan penyelewengan yang besar bahayanya.
Allah (sentiasa) hendak meringankan (beban hukumnya) daripada kamu, kerana manusia itu dijadikan berkeadaan lemah"
- Surat Al-Nisa ayat 27-28

I love it because it makes me feel like I have hope. I love it because it shows how Merciful Allah swt is.

It made me cry.

Salam Eid-ul Adha

I would like have this opportunity to wish every Muslim across the world a happy and blessful Eid-ul Adha. May this Eid brings us more prosperity and hidayah to be closer to Allah s.w.t. Ameen...

I wish one day, soon, to have the opportunity to perform Hajj too.

My sister's obsession over her imaginary "tummy"... and she believes she got the muffin top..

My sister is so freaking thin, you can actually give her names, like A Walking Plank or A Walking Stick or Twig or whatever because she's like so thin!
She's 35kg and she's obsessed with her weight and body image. Like seriously?

I've been searching for her photos but couldn't find one with her tummy exposed. I wished I had taken a picture of it.. but so far, this is latest and best pic I could find to show how her body looks like:

Can you see those legs?? Remember that photos add 20% extra body fat... :-p

I was just describing how her tummy looks like to my friend, which she asked me how thin is my sister because she looked "cengkung"... her tummy is like so flat, I'm like so jealous.. because even if she slouched, there's no 'cheeseburger' folds like mine... blerghhhh...

Dearest sister, don't be too obsessed with your body.. You're only 15 and you're growing. If you're too obsessed, I might diagnosed you having psychological problems like anorexic or bulimic, and send you to rehab and psychological institutions for teenage eating disorder. I wouldn't want that for you...

Stay healthy people! <3

Has anyone got any of this link posted on your facebook wall?

"~✿ Tudung kita pun dah nak ke arah macam ini sekarang..cuba perhatikan..ini fesyen bertudung ZAMAN SEKARANG yang DIBANGGAKAN ramai..
Rasulullah bersabda,
"Sesiapa MENYERUPAI satu kaum, ia dari kaum tersebut".
(HR Imam Abu Daud dari Ibnu Umar) 
JAUHILAH dari memakai sebegini..AGENDA kafir laknatullah itu sangat HALUS sehingga kita tidak sedar, ketahuilah wahai WANITA ISLAM sekalian."

Let me give you another quote I got;

45. Muslim women wear the head covering (hijab) in fulfillment of God’s decree to dress modestly. From a practical standpoint, it serves to identify one as attempting to follow God in daily life and, therefore, protects women from unwanted advances from men. Righteous women throughout history have worn this type of modest dress. Prominent examples are traditional Catholic Nuns, Mother Teresa and the Virgin Mary, mother of Jesus.

Please remind ourselves that Islam is not the first religion of Allah swt. Please remind ourselves that Islam is not the first religion that Allah swt commanded to cover our head and dress with modesty.

If I see women covering their heads, walking around anywhere in the world, If these nuns did not wore their cross on their chest, I would've thought they're Muslims.

And I ask you, Isn't the shirts and pants the men wore are not of the Westerners? Did not the "non-Muslims" who created this type of clothes? T-shirt and jeans? and we see Muslim men wearing them all over the world. Why not say something about that? Why not wear like the Arabs? Wouldn't that be more Islamic? If that is your argument?

Why keep beards when the Jewish rabbis also keeps their beards, as well as the Brahmins? Wouldn't that be like following other religions too?

but who am I to say such thing u may ask, I don't even wear Hijab...
I'm just wondering...

Aduhai, Tanahairku..

"The race was cancelled amid confusion in the grandstand, with fans throwing bottles to show their initial displeasure."

Ahh.. the mentality of my nation. You see someone just got hit by 2 motorcycles and lying on the track, a sudden RED FLAGGED announcement and we decided to throw bottles. Great attitude people and the news gets into BBC. Great. Just great.

Obviously an event won't get cancelled for no reason. Especially these kind of events!

It's the same situation I encounter when I went to Malaysia vs Singapore for World Cup Qualifying Match in Summer. I'm not sure if the situation would have been different if Malaysia had won, but why the hell would you throw paper cups and water bottles filled with water down the balcony. Seriously, people were getting wet! Bottles hitting people's head! No compassion at ALL! sheeshhh..

grrrr... geram..

Sebenarnya, rasa macam nak delete profile picture dalam facebook yang ada gambar dia dengan saya. Sebab? sebab dia taknak upload gambar yang kitorang together. Kata nak simpan, lepas kahwin baru letak (tu pun kalau kahwin lah kan? Kalau tak, memang takde lah.)

Tapi........ ramai sangat comment gambar tu.. sayang pulak nak delete.

Siggggggggghhhh.. Yeah. I'm pathetic like that. >.<

"Trust me"

I have this small habit of lying. LYING, not making up stories. I don't make up stories. I mostly lie when I feel lazy to answer about something. Yeah, I know it's weird and I can't really explain why.

Example 1:
The other day, my friend asked me,
Friend: "baru mandi ke?" (did you just had a bath?)
Me: "tak lah" (no).
Friend: "kenapa rambut depan basah?" (why is your front hair wet?).
Me: "Oh, sebab basuh muka" (Oh, because I washed my face).

The truth was, I did bathe before I came down, but my friend came like an hour later. So I think in my mind was, I didn't just had a bath. It was a while ago, and I didn't thought that my hair was still wet. Since I already answered "No", I just wen't and created a little lie. :-p

Example 2:
"Kaklong, mama keluar ke?" (did mama wen't out?) my brother asked.
I answered "ha'ah" (yup).
Suddenly my mom came out from the back room. LOL!
I didn't know where my mom were, but I was lazy to answered him, and I wen't straight to "yup"..

Example 3:
My mom: Kaklong, kenapa nasi ni macam lembik? (I don't remember her actual term, but it's not lembik) Macam nasi mama rendam semalam. (Kaklong, why is the rice look porridge-y? They look like the rice I soaked last night) [In her term should be thrown away]
Me: Oh, maybe sebab terlebih air kot? (Maybe I added too much water)

Ok. This was a total lie because I was completely CUUUUUAAAAAKKKKK!!! I didn't even saw the soaked water and the rice didn't even smell like it was spoiled! Thank God, no one had stomach ache.
P/s: I was 17 at that time, and didn't know how differentiate or cook rice properly. So my mom bought it. Rasa bersalah sangat!!! >.<

So yeah. That's me. As far as I can remember, I've been doing this since primary school. It has become a habit! There's actually more. Especially conversation between me and bB. but I forgot most of them because there's too many and didn't make much impact like these ones and also most of the time, bB caught me lying. He's so good at knowing me! Even my mom can't tell, he can. WTF. Or maybe my mom can, but she just leaves it at that. ;-p

So, if I answer something, you better just make sure I'm not lying. hahahaha.. :-p

I really don't know why I'm confessing about this in my blog. ;-p

Let My Heart be Open

I was kind of sad she answered the way she did. But it is not her fault.

Oh Allah, now I see.

"It is He Who made the sun to be a shining glory and the moon to be a light (of beauty), and measured out stages for it; that ye might know the number of years and the count (of time). Nowise did Allah create this but in truth and righteousness. (Thus) doth He explain His Signs in detail, for those who understand."
Al-Quran, Surah Yunus, Ayat 5 [10:5] 

Sunday, October 9, 2011


I've nothing particular to write about today. It's just the date today is very pretty so I want to post something.

I went out yesterday, after many weekends alone and boring spent in my lovely room. Since bB's not around, I haven't been going out much. I don't have that many close friends because since my 1st year, I have been spending my time with just bB. It is kinda sad sometimes, but I'm the person who can't live without a boyfriend.

I've never really had any chemistry with girls. I have no idea why. I have more guy friends, but since I have a boyfriend, I can't be too close to them either. So I rather just stick to my bf, or my family of course.

Ok, I'm blabbering about nothing.

Yesterday, we went to Traritsyno Park. Arep invited me to be the model. It was a sunny warm Autumn day! Perfect place with perfect weather. The leaves were falling, people leasuring, photoshooting. The best day. I only wished bB was there with me. We could've taken tones of romantic photos! :">

1, 2, 3...

Had an interesting discussion with our lecturer today. I'm currently in the middle of Tropical Diseases cycle. It's one of the most important cycles and it's specially for foreign students only. The Russian students don't have this cycle apparently. Because working in a tropical country, you basically can't run from tropical diseases. duh~ >.<

Anyway, our lecturer inserts some interesting current issues just to make the class not boring. So that we'll use our brain and have something to discuss about.

Just now, he asked our opinion whether prostitution should be made legal to reduce AIDS. Of course as a Muslim, I would say no. But he said, if prostitution was medically certified and strictly monitored, it could reduce the spreading of AIDS as well as benefit for the government to charge taxes. (Macam Amsterdam lah pulak)

Because, how do you control sex urges of young men? How do you release the muscle tension (that's what he said) of young men? We don't want young women to get pregnant, and young men don't want to carry out the responsibility of marriage at the age of 16 to 21. We are born as a sexual being. Sex is a need. And for once I didn't hear a man blaming women for their sexual urges, but then again, he's not a Muslim (Or any other religion that prevents premarital sex - but he said he's a Christian. Maybe not a Catholic?)

But how do you prevent it? People kept saying, we need to increase our faith. The problem now, people are lacking in faith to God. Unwanted teenage pregnancies and babies being thrown in garbage is because humans are lacking faith. But how do you make people to become more faithful to God than lust? How do you ignore your desires when hormones are raging? Even a pious man will have those desires as we are created weak. Yes, we can always ask God to guide us, but what about those who won't listen. Do we just let AIDS roaming and spreading? Do we let people keep throwing babies? Do we have the ability to separate men and women?

“Allah would make the burden light for you, for the human being was created weak.”
[Sûrah al-Nisâ’: 28]

How do you prevent lust? Cover women up from head to toe? I will always wonder if that will ever be the solution since people are making it into such a big deal. But my mother said, it doesn't matter if you cover your body and only your eyes are visible. A woman is a woman, even if you can't see it, you know what is underneath.

Wallahualam. I pray for Allah to give me guidance and hidayah, since sometimes I may stray. I hope he shall show us the right path to heaven and protect me from sins. InsyaAllah.

I hate when we're on skype and he's chatting with someone else.
I hate the fact that he doesn't divide his time for me.
I hate that he doesn't know how to make up with me on line or on the phone.
I hate that when he feels like leaving, he just leaves especially when I'm upset with him.
I hate that he doesn't tell me about anything!!!!!

Oh God! I feel like strangling him! grrrrrrr... >.< I don't understand what is it that is so hard to comply to my needs! I JUST WANT SOME ATTENTION.. AND I'M NOT GETTING ANY! Our timing has always been off and it's even worse now! because it's morning when it's midnight, and it's afternoon when it's maghrib.. I hate this..

My Choice

I don't want to wear it just because everyone else does
I don't want to wear it because people asked me to
I don't want to wear it because of fashion
I don't want to wear it to feel proud
I don't want to wear it because of my husband
I don't want to wear it, then take it off again, then wear it again

When I wear it, I'll wear it with love
When I wear it, I'll wear it with dignity
When I wear it, I'll wear it for Allah

Because that way it'll feel forever

Hidayah itu milik Allah
so stop forcing me or in your words 'advising'.

Baby, It's Cold Outside

Yeah. I'm back in Moscow.. back to early classes, running for buses, metro rides and fast internet! plus it's been cold, rainy and gloomy. I hope the sun will appear again soon, before winter comes.

Anyway, as some of you might know. My laptop crashed on Raya eve. I was baffled how I had only used this laptop for a year, and it suddenly just crashed without any signs! I tried to get repaired before flying back to Moscow but as it turned out, my warranty was still valid and Dell was off for a week! I asked them to just repair it but they refused since the warranty was still valid. So I got panicked because I was flying off in 5 days and how am I to survive without my laptop?!

My mom asked to change with my brothers and let them use mine when it's repaired. But they're returning to their places that Monday too, so everyone needed their laptops. In the end my mom asked, "takde kawan yang balik lambat ke?".. And it clicked in my head. Of course there are! Ramai sebenarnya, but I asked Sha Bunny to bring them back because she stays in Kuantan too. It would convenient for my mom. I am eternally grateful to Sha for bringing my laptop back to Moscow. ^_____________________^

So, as always, I would do a summary of my Summer holiday. Lets see what I've been up to.

bB's convocation in Moscow

My Italian Trip

With friends spending their last days in Moscow

Malaysia vs Singapore at Bukit Jalil

ex-Smartians reunion & iftar

Buka puasa with Moscow babes

Aidilfitri at home after 6 years. (gambar raya tak pernah lengkap. Abah was late this time. :p)

Shafura wedding, a day before me flying back to Moscow.

I also did my practicals during Ramadan, but didn't capture any picture though. It was really tiring even though I only did 10 days. haha! nak cuti punya pasal..

Well, that was almost what I've been doing for the last 2 months. This year will be my final year in Moscow, and I'm already starting to miss Moscow. But it's a little different spending my year in Moscow this year since bB isn't with me. It's kind of depressing in a way and gets a little lonely. I really hope this is just a phase. It's just 10 months away. I don't want to end my life in Moscow but at the same time, I want to get home and be with bB and my family.

С Новым Учебном  Годом! and Good luck to all RSMU final years.. ;))

After 6 years

After 6 years celebrating Eid in Moscow, finally this year I'm celebrating at home.. It has been fun so far, a lot of people came to my house which I consider as a blessing.

Even though my dad isn't really well, but I am so thankful that I still may celebrate this beautiful occasion with him.

So I wish Muslims around the world on this blessful month, to forgive and forget..


And also to Malaysians,

Italian Job Part 4: Rome

This is going to be a long post because I spent 6 days in Rome! I might separate it into 2 parts if its getting too long.

Lets start!

Day 6 [04.07.2011]

We arrived in Roma Termini Station about 2 hours later from Naples. We got off the train and straight away entered the Metro. There, using the machine, we bought 2 CIS - Integrated Weekly Ticket which cost €16.00/person since we'll be staying there for almost a week.

Then we board the metro from Termini to S. Maria D. Soccorso. I just followed bB and according to him, its nearer. So once we arrived at S. Maria D. Soccorso, we asked around for our hotel but no one really spoke English, and no one really knew where our hotel were. Luckily, our hotel is situated next to Auchan Hypermarket, so when we asked how to get to Auchan, they told us which bus to take. It was fairly easy to get there but really far from the centre.. We got off the bus once we saw Auchan. Unfortunately, I forgot the bus number.

Arrived at S. Maria S. Maria D. Soccorso. I was shocked looking at their metro trains! totally vandalized!

The first 3 nights we're staying at Hotel Idea. If you've read my post about TVIexpress here
and here, you would understand why we stayed at 2 different hotels.

Anyway, once we got there, we checked in and asked for internet connection. There's a funny story about the WiFi. When I called the hotel before flying to Italy and asked about the WiFi, they said, the WiFi costs €7/day.. but when we asked for WiFi on the day we checked in, they gave us for 2 1/2 day free WiFi connection. Another thing is, we never saw the girl who was in charge of the counter that day again after the day we checked in. Then when the WiFi was disconnect, we asked the receptionist to reconnect it again, she said it costs €7/day. We were a bit baffled by it, but thought, guess it was just our luck? Alhamdulillah.. €7/day is too expensive for an internet connection.

Ok, back to the main story. It was raining quit heavily once we got into our room. So we just relaxed, watch tv, surf the net and nap for a bit. When the rain stopped, we got ready and head out to Auchan to buy some groceries. Then we went around the blocks to see if there's any halal restaurant around, we didn't find any, so we just bought 2 slices of pizza to bring back to the hotel. We returned to the hotel, eat our dinner that we bought, then sleep... ;))

Shopping for groceries.

Day 7 [05.07.2011]

We woke up about 9am. Had breakfast. It was a really good breakfast with a wide range of food to choose from.

Breakfast at Hotel Idea Roma Z3

After breakfast we head out into the city, we thought of catching the 2 p.m Free Tour to the Colosseum but saw it was quite late. I have no idea what we did after breakfast that we couldn't catch the 2 p.m tour.

The hotel provides a shuttle bus to Rebbibia every hour except for from 12:30pm to 6:00pm. So at about 2 or 3 p.m we went out and took the bus at Via di Grotta di Gregna, and unfortunately I forgot the bus number too. The bus goes to Ponte Mammolo metro station. We took the metro to Termini station in search of Halal Restaurants.. There were quite a few halal restaurants around Termini station, so we picked one Turkish restaurant and had lunch there.

After lunch, we made way to Spagna station for the Free Tour. We arrived 1/2 hour early, so we hang around the Piazza di Spagna and took some pictures.

Piazza di Spagna, The Spanish Steps and   Trinità dei Monti church.

The City Centre Free Walking Tour starts at 5 p.m. We waited in front of McD's for the tour guide. I forgot his name though. :P

So we started with the history of Piazza di Spagna, to Trevi Fountain, Piazza di Pietra, Pantheon, and ended at Piazza Navona. The tour took about one and half hour. Pretty short tour I must say. After the tour ended, we hang around Trevi Fountain while eating gelatos. Then we walk around the city looking at souvenirs and shops. We went back to Piazza di Spagna to take some photos. While taking picture at Piazza di Spagna, a dog had to sniff my jeans! WTF?! Like seriously?! Is there no one else to sniffs? I was pretty upset because it's my favourite pair of jeans. By 8 p.m, we head back to our hotel from Spagna. We had to return to the hotel early, I think they're doing some renovations or upgrading the metro system because Line A is opened only until 9 p.m.

The Pantheon

Fontana di Trevi. The water was so clear and cold I felt like jumping into the fountain!

Piazza Novona

So we took the shuttle bus from Rebbibia Station at 9:00p.m to return to our hotel. Then we bought some food at Auchan, and I had to dig some soil near Auchan to clean my jeans before going to bed. Thank God the place had a lot of soil!

Day 8 [06.07.2011]

We woke up quite late today. Almost missed breakfast. After breakfast, we took the shuttle bus at 11:30 am to the metro station and head out to the city. We're catching the 2 p.m Free Tour to the Colosseum today.

We arrived at Spagna quit early, so hang around there for a while. Trinità dei Monti church is situated at the top of the Spanish Steps. So we went up the Spanish Steps and took some picture of the church, the steps and the piazza from the hill top.

Piazza di Spagna view from the Spanish Steps.

Then we had lunch at McD's while waiting for the tour to start. At 2 p.m, the tourguide came, and we waited for about 10 minutes for everyone to settle in.

The tour starts off from Piazza di Spagna, to Colonna di Marco Aurelio, Piazza Venezia, Campidoglio, Colonna Traiana, Foro Romano and ended at the Colosseum (Outside). The tour took 2 hours. We thought of entering the Colloseum but then we saw the queue was really long, so we decided to enter the Colosseum another day since we still have some time in Rome.

Colonna di Marco Aurelio


Foro Romano

Then we went to Termini to buy lunch. We picked an Indian Halal restaurant. But the service was so horrible! We said one thing, and he understood another, and he blamed us for changing our minds on what to order. He snapped at us, and we snapped back but he insisted that we were wrong. I was already having a bad mood throughout the day, even while we were touring, plus this - It completely ruined my mood at that time, and I my anger was channeled to bB. We could've just walked out of that restaurant but I really don't know why we didn't. Instead, me and bB had our misunderstandings due to that event and went back to the hotel separately.

Once arrived at the hotel, I just went to sleep and our lunch was eaten for dinner, when both of us had cooled down. LOL! what a day..

Day 9 [07.07.2011]

We're checking out from Hotel Idea Roma Z3 today. So we hang around the hotel until 12 p.m. Then we took the shuttle bus at 12.30 p.m to the metro station and head to Termini Station. Today we're checking in at Bolognese hotel. It's nearer to the centre. The map we got didn't cover the whole city, just the main attractions, so we thought the hotel was near the Termini Station but we had to walk quite a bit to reach the hotel. Later we found out that the hotel was nearer to Castro Pretorio Station.

Bolognese hotel is more expensive than Hotel Idea Roma Z3 but it was quite awful. The rooms looks more like a hostel rather than a hotel. Enough said.

After checking in at Bolognese hotel. We walked around the centre. We had lunch at Hard Rock Cafe. After lunch, we went to Villa Borghese. It's the largest park in Rome. It's really beautiful! A lot of sculptures and fountain. Although I find the lake to be quite small, but it's really pretty~!

Lunch at Hard Rock Cafe, Rome.

The lake in Villa Borghese

After walking around the park, we went to Via Washington to Piazza Del Popolo. Then we walk through Via Del Corso which I think is the main shopping street of Rome. There are shops varies from Zara to H&M, to Chanel and Guess, and the lists goes on. Then we head back to Piazza di Spagna from Via Del Corso.

Street Dancing at Via Del Corso

3 stories ZARA. Didn't find anything I like though, except a pig-skinned belt. -__-

While in Zara, I accidentally touched a belt that looked like it was made out of pig skin, I didn't know if it was real or synthetic skin, but I was in doubt. Since I was in doubt, I had to clean my hands with soil! So where in the middle of the city can you find clean soil? So we had to go back to Villa Borghese to find soil.. We walked from Piazza di Spagna to Villa Medici, where I took some soil. Thank God we didn't have to go all the way to Villa Borghese to find soil. I would've lost my feet back there.. All the way there, I thought I should have brought the soil I took from Auchan. Would have saved me all this trouble. Life oh life~ So then, we walked back to our hotel. And I cleaned my hands. Phewww~ After cleaning up, we hang around the cafe for a while and used the internet before going to bed. Too much walking today. I'm dead tired.

Panoramic view of Rome before entering Villa Medici.

Day 10 [08.07.2011]

We're entering the Colosseum today! We woke up really early today. We went to the cafe for breakfast and guess what's for breakfast? a piece of bread and coffe. That's it. Really? For the price I'm paying? Ok, fine it's in the centre, but its really expensive and breakfast could have been better. I'm cursing TviExpress as it is. ;P

Ok, then we made our way to the Colosseum. We arrived there by 9 a.m. The queue was long but shorter than the other day we went. Just until the entrance. But it went by quite fast too. We bought the tickets and bB rent the audio thingy to know roughly about the history. The ticket costs €12 per adult, worth for 2 days includes the Colosseum and Foro Romano.

We entered to Colosseum first, went around the Colosseum, taking pictures and reading the info. There was a Nerone Exhibition/Museum held inside the Colosseum until September. We visited there too.

Inside the Colosseum

Then we entered the Forum Romanum. It was noon by the time we got out from the Colosseum and blazing hot! The fun thing about Rome is that, drinking water is free around town. The water comes straight from the mountains, so we kept refilling our water bottle. I didn't get any upset stomach drinking it unlike the time when I went to Egypt, so I guess they're clean. We didn't feel quite satisfied though visiting the Colosseum and the Forum because we had no tour guide, so we didn't really know the detailed history of the place. The audio thingy didn't help much though.

Queuing for water.

Panoramic view of the Forum.

After walking around the Forum, I wanted to visit the Cat Sanctuary at the Largo di Torre Argentina. So we walked from the Forum to Area Sacra dell'Argentina/Largo di Torre Argentina, passed by Campidoglio, so we took another picture with the beautiful building.

Once arrived there, I was looking around for cats in the Area, but didn't saw any cats. I was pretty disappointed and so was bB. So we rested at a Ducati Caffe near the Area, had some drinks and asked the waiter about the Cat Sanctuary. Unfortunately, their English understanding was limited and they didn't understand what we were asking.

Ducati Caffe

After our drinks, we went around the Area and I found a sign that said "Charity Cat Shop". I was so excited!!! I guess this is the place. So we went down, and played with all the cute cats. Most of the cats had sad stories and cases though. Most of them were sick too. It was pretty sad staying there, but I loved the fact that there are people who loves and care for the cats. So I made some donations to them because I'm a cat lover too.. ;))

Cat Sanctuary entrance.

This little kitty is amputated but was so active! It was so hard getting his picture!

bB was happy that I was satisfied. Then we took a bus back to Termini Station and had lunch in another Halal Restaurant. This time we went into a restaurant owned by a Bangladeshi. He was very kind and friendly. Then walked back to our hotel. Hang around the cafe again to use the internet before going to bed. ;P

Take ur pick! ^_^

Day 11 [09.07.2011]

Today, we're going for another Free Tour to the Vatican. The tour starts at 11 a.m covers Piazza di Spagna to Via Condotti, Piazza Augusto Imperatore, Ara Pacis, Ponte degli Angeli, Castel S. Angelo, and ends at Basilica di S. Pietro (Outside).

Ponte degli Angeli

Castel S. Angelo

Basilica di S. Pietro

I must say, out of all the Free Tours we've been to in Europe. Italy is the most boring! Sorry Italians..

We didn't enter the Saint Peter Basilica since both of us aren't Christians and our friends that went inside says there's nothing there unless you're Christians because most people just pray while they're in the Vatican. So we just took some picture and went back to Spagna because bB wanted to try the coffee at Caffè Greco which is the best known and oldest bar in Rome. bB ordered Cappuccino and I just bought a glass of Coke. We just ordered from the bar, because the price is doubled if you decided to sit. They didn't even allowed us to look around inside. If you want to look around, you have to sit and pay double!

At Caffe Greco

Then we went souvenir shopping, met Shafiq (a friend from Moscow) for dinner at yesterday's halal restaurant. We knew he was in Rome from foursquare. Technology! ;P After dinner, we hang around the Circo Massimo and watch the sunset. By the time it was dark, we took the trams to Colloseum and hang around there watching the night scene. For a week we've been in Rome we had never spend any night hanging around the city because of the Line A metro closing at 9 p.m except for Saturdays. But we forgot that tonight was a Saturday, so we didn't go to Spagna or Fontana di Trevi. I'm sure it would've been nice and beautiful to see the fountain at night.

Circo Massimo

The Colosseum at night.

We returned to our hotel and started packing because tomorrow we'll be leaving to Riga before heading back to Moscow.

Day 12 [10.07.2011]

We checked out after breakfast and made our way to the airport at around 10 a.m. because our flight is at 1:35 p.m.

From Termini to Fiumicino Airport.

At the airport, we had some minor fits with the steward at the counter. I really don't know what was his problem, but he gave us a lot of problems. First, he asked for our visa to Riga which we didn't need any visa to enter Riga. So we thought he was asking for the visa to Russia and showed him the Russian visa, which then he asked why are our visa expiry date is different from each other. Does it matter? Then we had to convinced him that we didn't need visa to Riga.

Then he gave us a problem with my luggage. Saying it was too big [yeah, it didn't fit the measurement, but it never had any problem before in flight. It always fits in the cabin compartment], so we tried to convinced him that there wasn't any problem with the bag in Moscow or Riga, and he replied "This is not Moscow, This is not Riga".. WTF, I had reached my boiling point. He asked us to pay and put the bag in the cargo. So then wanting to try our luck, we queue at the next counter, but his colleague told on us, and the the problematic steward said, if we don't pay for the luggage, we can't ride the plane. GRRRRRRRR~!

We had no choice, but to pay for the luggage. Costs me €30!! And that just ruined my visit to Italy! My mood was off the whole 2 hours in the plane until we reached Riga. Wasn't really a warm goodbye, was it?

Riga or Kuala Lumpur? ;p

Oh well, other than that our trip as a whole was really fun.. I do miss Italy, especially Venice, but I miss the time spent travelling with bB the most. Hopefully there will be more travelling in the future! ;)
