and not forgetting the skype calls wif the family... a lot of things have happened during the past months n i believe it's going to bring us closer each time...

It might be when i really want to share my problems, i always thought that you might not be interested or you just ask the question 'how r u?' as a greeting...

PANIKKKKKK!!!!

i m facing fear right now... fear of failing exams, fear of speaking words, fear of hurting ppl unintentionally, fear of the future, to summarise it all, fear of the unknown... It all happens one day, when i was sitting in my classroom, staring at the lecturer as usual, n suddenly it hits me, november is slowly passing by n then it's christmas then come exams! Since then, my heart cont to beat so hard tat i can feel it in my throat... Still i went to join my church pastor n some frens for dinner in a nearby city tat night, had a great time just enjoying the fellowship, chatting n getting advices on starting anew wif my quiet time... I decided to ditch my old style of reading the bible word by word to a global understanding of the books to see the different characteristics of God n men... I oso challenge myself to spend more time in the MORNING for my quite time, which means go to bed earlier so as not to affect my at-least-7-hours-beauty-sleep! Hah! N today is the first day in which i ended up snoozing an extra 15 mins instead of the original plan of waking up earlier... Ah well, 4263157846592 days to go! Haha

went to the ICU for the first time in my life, and saw my friend lying unconsciously on the bed... like wat my mum did to every other patients tat she came across to, i cried out her name hoping tat if she hear ppl coming to visit her, she will at least be encouraged n feel happy... i wanted so much to talk to her and tel her to stay strong no matter wat, but paiseh lah coz her dad is around...

i believe in your complete healing zira! be strong ok?

Tips on how to pack for Germany...

since i m super-duper lazy to post sth significant bout myself, might as well i post sth useful for others...

it happens like this - i was soooooo bored in class today because i can't understand a thing... *will tel u bout tat in my other posts, if there's any... therefore, together wif my housemate aka classmate, Miss L, we decided to list down a few things which we, personally found it important and decided to share wif ppl out there who somehow read this accidentally or purposefully...

1. More food stuff than clothes... trust me, ur fashion sense will change during the first few months in Germany and soon enough, u will be asking urself, y do u brought them here in the first place - in other words, more reason to SHOP!!!)

2. Stationeries (in other words, everything u needed for studies, juz to name a few, eg calculator, pens, the 3 diff size of mechanical pencils from GMI etc etc...)

3. Rice cooker - this thing works magic...

4. Medicine for flu and sorethroat - needless to say, the first winter experience for most of us is not exactly the best one...

5. For the religious ppl (like me and miss L) do bring your holy book along because it is not easy to find one in the language u REALLY understand... for muslims, it is also advisable to bring along ur sejadah... n those who manage to settle in Offenburg will of course be provided wif one because i do happen to hav one by accident... haha

6. Accesories - if you do wear them... miss L mentioned tat it is damn expensive here (obviously i don really wear them)

7. I personally don recommend bringing any books because you only hav 25 kg to spare for food and clothes only...

8. If i could turn back the time now, all i will put in my luggage is local spices n seasonings, all sorts of maggi perencah i can find in Giant, bak kut teh, laksa sauce, kompia, kampua, ikan bilis, dried scallops, dried prawns... *my mouth juz watered thinking bout them...

Achtung! edited : (new things added)
9. Bring a LAN cable... ur first 3 weeks of internet connection lies in this thing...

10. Bring extra biometric photos... u might juz need it for emergency purposes...

anyone has anything to add? u r most welcome to!

:-]


This makes my day...

Imagine this scenario, it was a cold autumn afternoon and i was leaning on a bicycle stand wif miss L (not miss Loser) while waiting for the bus... suddenly an old man who was sitting inside the bus stop knocked on the glass divider which caught my attention...

immediately the thought that i might be scolded again zapped across my mind because of some bad experience wif old ppl in germany... he beckoned me to him and reluctantly i went up to him, pleading in my mind - please don scold me for leaning on the bicycle stand!

wif both fist reached out, he murmured sth which i cannot understand but nevertheless i think he was trying to ask me to imitate him so i did... i held out my fists and surprisingly, he gripped both my hands and start pulling me - i was having the shock of my life thinking tat he might do sth erm not nice to me... however, he was actually trying to stand up and was asking me to support him... and after a few seconds, he finally managed to stand up using me as a support and gav me the biggest and most sincere smile i've ever seen... he thanked me and in return i gav him my widest smile wif my eyes squinted to a line and wished him a very good day ahead...

so tat's wat i wanna share today and to me, it was such a great honour to be able to help the old man standing up... a great day indeed!

Talking to myself...

Don't let your lights go down
Don't let your fire burn out
'Cause somewhere, somebody needs a reason to believe
Why don't you rise up now?
Don't be afraid to stand out
That's how the lost get found

The lost get found
-Britt Nicole-

Hello my friend
I remember when you were
So alive with your wide eyes
Then the light that you had in your heart was stolen
Now you say that it ain't worth stayin'
You wanna run but you're hesitatin'
I'm talkin' to me

Don't let your lights go down
Don't let your fire burn out
'Cause somewhere, somebody needs a reason to believe
Why don't you rise up now?
Don't be afraid to stand out
That's how the lost get found
The lost get found

So when you get the chance
Are you gonna take it?
There's a really big world at your fingertips
And you know you have the chance to change it
There's a girl on the streets, she's cryin'
There's a man whose faith is dyin'
Love is calling you


Why do we go with the flow
Or take an easier road?
Why are we playin' it safe?
Love came to show us the way
Love is a chance we should take
I'm movin' out of the way

missing everyone

sitting in front of the laptop browsing at ppl's fb profile... yup, tat's wat i've been doing for the past hour in another city in my fren's room and realising that so many things happen when i'm not really around and busy travelling around east europe...

gosh i miss those ppl! esp those from CA last time... we'd gone thru so much together, so much fun, laughter, tears... and slowly i m beginning to lose contact wif them, one by one... sooner or later, we will turn out to be complete strangers to each other and i don wan tat to happen...

it is so hard to keep in touch wif ppl if u don take the extra effort and time to do it... and esp in a new environment where ur life seems to be always occupied by sth, then the priority of 'frens' u r willing to invest ur time on tends to be neglected...

to let go or not to let go... sigh

Liebe...

Liebe ist geduldig und freundlich,
Sie ist nicht verbissen, sie prahlt nicht
und schaut nicht auf andere herab.
Liebe verletzt nicht den Anstand
und sucht nicht den eigenen Vorteil,
sie lässt sich nicht reizen,
sie rechnet das Böse nicht zu,
sie freut sich nicht über die Ungerechtigkeit,
sie freut sich aber an der Wahrheit.
Sie erträgt alles, sie glaubt alles, sie hofft alles, sie duldet alles.
Die Liebe hört niemals auf.


Love is patient, love is kind.
It does not envy, it does not boast,
it is not proud.
It is not rude, it is not self-seeking,
it is not easily angered,
it keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil
but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails.


I saw the german version of 1 Corinthians 13 : 4-8 at the back of a wedding invitation and could not recall the english version of it. So i look up for it on the internet and was quite surprise to see the differences between this 2 usage of the language. I've posted both english and german verses here so u can see the difference (if n only if u can understand both, if not, sorry lah... haha)

Summary

i noe i sound like a 100-year-old here but i must say this... time really flies... i've juz finish the last paper today and it is officially summer holidays for me... therefore, it is time i look back at the first 6 months of my life here in germany n summarise it in a couple of words...

life has been great here, enjoying while suffering at the same time... gone thru ups n downs n i can say i've given my best in everything tat i do, well, not everything... one thing tat i really really really regretted is not being able to socialise wif the locals well, esp wif housemates n classmates... when i first arrived, there's always this gang-ho-ness of telling the world tat ' i can conquer germany!!!!' or 'i will blend in among germans n try not to form a kampung malaysia'... truth is, it is not at all tat easy... first day in class, i tried to step out of my comfort zone n approach someone, a girl sitting next to me n ta-dah, she's the only fren i got for the whole semester... ok, there's this other girl and a fren's fren, so tat makes altogether 3 frens out of 60 student in my class... haih... and even worse, i juz turn down a classmate's invitation to go for a end-of-exam-celebration-party, the last chance in this semester to get to noe other ppl from my class... haih... someone juz throw me a 'loser' hat n i shall gladly wear it now...

studies - so far so good... got nearly all my results already, passed all of them and still waiting for the other 2, shud be able to pass but i hope i can score...

spritually, inner-man or in my case, inner-woman growing stronger but outside-community wise, not so... the original 'gang-ho-ness' of willing to travel so far to church is slowly not sustainable and finding myself slowly not able to accept the church concept here... i miss the big church community back in Malaysia where a lot ppl gather in one place n singing praises out loud...

tat's all folks!

identity crisis...

did the personality test again on sunday n found out tat i hav a problem wif my identity... haha... i wonder whether i've really changed or all this while i've been limitting myself to a certain behavior... anyway, tat's not the main point...

this is。。。

i nearly burn down my kitchen weh! but my housemate was there to save the day and his "Kein Problem!" (no big deal) really made my day... shall refrain myself from cooking... -_-

AYA awards is back! plz do check it out here... i was there for the last 2 awards, first time as a spectator n the second time as a volunteer... i was so inspired after the awards n i hope u can experience it the power of a true story too!

Invisible...

yo, finally got myself a new keyboard after so many days of procrastinating, i manage to drag myself to Media Markt and the best thing about Media Markt is tat when u buy anything there n u wanted a refund, they giv u back immediately, no question asked... how cool is tat? (but-maybe-they-see-me-korean-auntie-face-who-dunno-how-to-speak-german)

back to the topic, after a whole semester to unintentional attempt to stay invisible in class, i'm actually shock to see how fast time zoomed pass me n suddenly it's nearly the end of my first uni semester here in Hochschule Offenburg... meaning fast approaching the end-of-sem-exams too... been studying hard this time, hoping to at least pass wif slightly better results than other ppl... and during this period of pre-exam time, i've seen some really weird things going on in class... to cut the story short, we Malaysians are seriously trained to go for exam whereas germans, they don't... one really interesting thing is tat one of my classmate manage to get hold of some leaked questions online n he showed it to the lecturer... needless to say, the lecturer throw a huge tantrum and threatened to have 80 exam questions tat need to be finished in 90 minutes... after hearing tat, i feel like throwing him into the river n feed the poor fishes... but then again, i really prefer to hav objective question instead of subjective, so somehow one way or another, it is a blessing in disguise... hopefully...

insights from travelling...

i've been travelling a lot here in germany, to church, to meet up wif frens, to ikea, to outlet cities, to visit ppl and the means of transport i use the most is train... and one thing in common i shared wif other train travelers is tat we all carry bags or even luggages... before we travel, we need to make sure we hav everything, ipod, books, water bottle, wallet, money, camera, hand n face lotion, lipbalm, ricola, handphone, jacket, chocolates and anything we could think of in our bags... we felt like the more stuff we bring, the bigger the bag, the more we r prepared for anything... isn't life like this too? we take up things n responsibilities in our daily walk and as time goes by, they become a burden as every step we take n every station we stop by to change to a new train... we think we r prepared, but the fact is the our bags are getting heavier on our way to our destination... then i realise, i m actually on board a train where i don need any baggages, faith is enough to sustain me...

are you ready to board this train?

More beautiful you by Jonny Diaz



Little girl fourteen flipping through a magazine
Says she wants to look that way
But her hair isn't straight her body isn't fake
And she's always felt overweight

Well little girl fourteen I wish that you could see
That beauty is within your heart
And you were made with such care your skin your body and your hair
Are perfect just the way they are

There could never be a more beautiful you
Don't buy the lies disguises and hoops they make you jump through
You were made to fill a purpose that only you could do
So there could never be a more beautiful you

Little girl twenty-one the things that you've already done
Anything to get ahead
And you say you've got a man but he's got another plan
Only wants what you will do instead

Well little girl twenty-one you never thought that this would come
You starve yourself to play the part
But I can promise you there's a man whose love is true
And he'll treat you like the jewel you are

So turn around you're not too far
To back away be who you are
To change your path go another way
It's not too late you can be saved
If you feel depressed with past regrets
The shameful nights hope to forget
Can disappear they can all be washed away
By the one who's strong can right your wrongs
Can rid your fears dry all your tears
And change the way you look at this big world
He will take your dark distorted view
And with His light He will show you truth
And again you'll see through the eyes of a little girl

nice n meaningful song... speaks to most ppl at our age, esp me...

Beautifully imperfect...

Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother's eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye?

imperfect... that's wat we all are... and it really cost a lot to realise and to admit it... however, isn't all these make who we are? yes, although we are all imperfects, we are beautifully imperfect in God's eyes... of course we must strive to be perfect, but then again, who is?


this is a 2 in 1 post... the emo n not so emo post... the upper n bottom post...



ok, i hate to admit it...
i'm bored...

Psalm 121


Ich hebe meine Augen auf zu den Bergen, von welchen mir Hilfe kommt.
Meine Hilfe kommt vom Herrn, der Himmel und Erde gemacht hat.
Er wird deinen Fuß nicht gleiten lassen; und der dich behütet, schläft nicht.
Siehe, der Hüter Israels schläft noch schlummert nicht.
Der Herr behütet dich; der Herr ist dein Schatten über deiner rechten Hand,
daß dich des Tages die Sonne nicht steche, noch der Mond des Nachts.
Der Herr behüte dich vor allem Übel; er behüte deine Seele!
Der Herr behüte deinen Ausgang und Eingang von nun an bis in Ewigkeit!



i realise one thing important, that all this while i tot i was running away from my problems, in fact, i was running away from God...

it's time to turn around, don't stop, and run again... this time at the right direction! :)

introducing....
my tv...

occationally we will turn it on,
when the housemate is not around (as loud as it can be!),
when we felt that we lack of german listening skill (some german soap opera where real german are being spoken instead of being dubbed),
when we miss listening to english so much (oweys n forever mtv, bbc n cnn),
when we feel like annoying the housemate. ^_^

aaaand baked chicken wings, taste so much like mum's...

updates

guess it is time for updates...

i can't believe one year have passed since a-levels last year... it seems like yesterday when my housemate n i climbed over the fence in the middle of the night in akasia just to watch euro cup matches at mcd in shah alam during tat time... and right now i m in germany, struggling everyday to overcome all sorts of barriers (language, food, socialising etc..) and getting use to new things here (cycling/driving on the right side of the road etc)

now i've reach the phase where everyday is a routine, waking up in the morning, go to class, come back, eat lunch, skype with frens n family, ebaying, watch mtv (coz it's the only thing i understand) dinner, surf internet, read bible, turn off lights n sleep from monday to thursday, then friday, saturday n sunday i spend most of my time lepak at senior's place, do some random travelling wif my housemate, church n the cycle repeat itself... i guess this might be the so call 'settling down' which i was hoping to be since day one... and it is normal to me that everytime i go out, i hear ppl speaking german n realise i , too, speak german, eg ordering food, buying chicken n beef from the turkey shop, talking to classmate (singular) all this suddenly seems so - normal...

ok, enough of this, juz post this for the sake of updating... will see wat i shall post next time!

hiking at blackforest...

the most beautiful place and i felt as if i were in paradise, the different greens of the trees were juz so beautiful, indicating tat new life begins from now onwards... it was raining the whole day on friday n saturday n i nearly pull out of the hike for the fear of getting sick... it doesn't help when i woke up on sunday morning only to find out tat it was fogging outside, which was quite thick, but i went anyway... the trip was organized by the senior service of my uni and it is open to all international students, the group was really big, there were 30 international students from all over the world n 20 ppl from senior service... this is the first time i went hiking in germany and together wif so many ppl... we took a train and literally pack the whole train up... it was quite interesting to hear so many languages spoken at one time and in a train... ppl juz automatically strike a conversation like it is so normal, unlike in ehem class coughs wif hem germans... haha... and i was even amazed when i met a former malaysian student who works wif the uni branch now... we went like "malaysia!!!" n start talking bullet-train-malaysian-english... we also manage to converse in german wif the other member of senior services, although most of them were kind enough to explain more detailed stuff in english... i learn a lot about plants from them, i learn how to differentciate different fruit tress by the colour of the flowers and also by the shape of the tree bark... since coming to germany, i've grown a passion for plants here, esp since it's spring now n it is juz so inspring to see so many colours lighting the whole place up... we also manage to make friends wif other international students and to be able to understand jokes that they make is simply wonderful... for the first time i can actually join in the joke no matter how lame they are and laugh my head off...

now you might be wondering y this post is all words til now... n u might think that they might be photos posted up real soon... no, u r wrong!!!

because being a smarty pant *as always, i forgot to bring my camera!!!!!!!!!!!! n to make things worse, i even forgot to bring my handphone... seriously i feel like jumping down to every river tat i pass by n freeze myself to death or jump down from every slope tat i climb or knock my head agains all the beautiful trees... haih...

Saturday, April 18, 2009

France...

the place which i've heard so much of but never actually been there and the place i nearly applied to instead of germany... well, from my point of view, i do think tat language is not a barrier there, so much for wat ppl say bout France, english actually can be accepted if u got the oriental looks... haha... here are some pics of Strasbourg, the capital of Europen Union... the architecture is totally mind blowing

p/s : it is juz 30 mins away from Offenburg...

Easter holiday is just around the corner and easter is quite a big thing in Germany because of the religious background of this country but i guess many ppl dunno the reason behind easter anymore... now it's all about the bunnies n chocolates n colourful eggs...

although i might not be religious on the outside and i do not fast during lent, one thing i know... that thousands of years ago, love came n conquer sin, tat all who believe shall not perish n live eternally...

click here if u r wan to know wat easter means to me...

anyway, one question here... is easter meant to be celebrated? got ppl die wat... can celebrate meh? haha... typical chinese thinking...

happy or not happy?

"eh, u look very happy there hoh?" (there as in Germany lah)

tat is a question i found really hard to answer sometimes when ppl keep asking me over n over again... the problem is, it is really hard to see my unhappiness wif all the facebook pics circulating around... even during cny, when there r relatives visiting my house, my siblings will automatically click onto my facebook profile n show them my pics...(i famous mah, so ppl will ask about me naturally... ahaha) and of course, all the pics will depict happiness in a more visual way, which is more impacting... usually, the reaction wud be like "wah, so fun there, visit mercedes benz museum, go munich drink beer n eat pork leg, wah so nice..." of couse it wud be nice when u were treated like kings (queens) with all ur needs being taken care of... but that is only the first month, i repeat FIRST month ONLY in germany, then slowly n gradually, the excitement fades n confusion starts to seep in...

i wud be really n truly happy if -
i can understand whatever my lecturer taught in class
my lecturer can understand the questions that i try to ask in class
my classmates start talking to me
i dare to step out of my comfort zone
i manage to overcome the fear of both my german guy housemates
i can express myself freely without worrying bout vocabs n grammar mistakes
my allowance comes in april instead of may

those, u can't see in my facebook pics...

p/s : i lost count of how many times i edited this post... yer... so many grammar mistakes... it is bad enough wif my german, now my english... sigh

Germany part 1

amazing facts about germany:

1. everyone in class seems to noe wat r those shiny little things shown on the pics above...

2. und? (and?) is like a secret questions among germans... the first thing they see each other every morning is asking this secret question, n the conversation goes on for hours....

3. everyone in germany seems to hav to same handwriting... (since they r all unreadable, so i assume tat they're the same)

4. germany's exam pad is in brackets instead of lines...

5. be very very careful when u took a train in germany... they actually seperate halfway n go different places...

to be continue... (hopefully)

Spring oh spring...







one of the things offenburg offers is the sunshine, which germany really lacks of... but do not equal it with heat, u will still feel cold into the bones irregardless of the brightness outside... this misapprehension leads to less layer of clothes u wear every morning when u r deciding wat to wear to class...

finally we r here...

compare to the jakunness when we first pass by offenburg to frankfurt...
