I remember one of the Moffatt's songs "if life is too short", i never understood what the whole "life is too short" is all about. Such a cliche line. dulu, rasa mcm, mana ada life is short, macam lamanya. but as i grow older, i realised how true that is. It feels like yesterday i was 12 years old, busy with UPSR, active in Taek Wando and Gymrama. Life was so easy back then, all i have to worry is my studies, and enjoy the company of my friends. 13 years down the road, i have no idea where it went, all i know is that i did not expected the things i have been going through, especially this particular year.

When i was younger, i imagined one day, my grandparents will go. And i cant believe that, i am in that stage if my life already. I can clearly remember going to my arwah nenek's place, and minum her home made sirap pandan, and she makes the best ayam goreng in the world. Now, that is just a distanced memory. No matter how "small" that memory is, insyaAllah i will always remember it.

Lately i feel like god is testing me. I cant really say what exactly it is, but i feel like this is the first "adult" test i have ever experienced. I have always dreamt for an easy life with a lot of money, but true enough, life is too short to care too much about money. Life is too short to care about what people think about you and what status you are.

But whats more important i think is that i realised, life is too short to compare yourself to other people who might look like they are doing better than you, but really, its the good deeds that you do that is more cherish-able when life is over.

and whats been up.

So, a lot has happened the past few days. I have been so busy since Wednesday and i wasn't in the best mood to blog, due to my family big loss, pemergian my arwah nenek ke rahmatullah.

But at the same time i had to make the best of my last few days in Melbourne.

My friends and i had a mixed futsal game on Tuesday, just because im leaving and ira was leaving too. Thanks for the turn ups boy and girls :)

On Wednesday night, my colleagues from Lili/ Charlie Brown had a small farewell dinner for me @ Cookie Bar. I had their awesome soft shell crab, but i have to say the say place was pretty busy for a Wednesday night, it wasn't the best place to sit and have an intimate chat. It was night catching up with them tho. i love working with them and i am blessed to have the opportunity to meet these women. I love u ladies and good luck with your future undertakings :)

Today i had 2 girly dates. Mia and i had Las Chicas brekky at Balaclava, i highly recommend people to try their breakfast because the have the best egg benedict i have ever had in my life. And of course i cant leave Melbourne without having my last belgium waffle @ Degrave Street. Its a pity the Melbourne Council made them take their waffle's stand in the store.. Wonder what happened to the picture that Belgium guy took with Rio Ferdinand. He was so proud of it.

Shura and I then met up for what suppose to be a girls-night-out, became girls-night-makan-dinner-then-too-penat-to-go-anywhere-else. We did enjoy a bit of Zara Melbourne session.
Zara's price here is cheaper than Malaysia for some reason. In my opinion, i seriously think this will disrupt the Australian local fashion brand, as their price is affordable and better quality (they are made in Spain, Turkey and Portugal, not China for a start). And i heard a rumour that they are opening a Top Shop here in Australia. Good luck Sportsgirls and Forever New, you are in deep @#%^. But i will always support the Australian brands!!

We had Oriental Tea House for dinner, and my prawn dumpling decided to berenang in my air.. nyeh nyeh nyeh.

Finally had Jamaican Bananas pancake at pancake parlour and penutup to hari yang begitu banyak makan.

Oh!! i would also like to congrats my childhood friend, Nik Izhar, and his lovely wife, Adyla, congratulations on the nikah today! Alhamdullilah! So happy for you too! See you at the reception!

I love you uwan, even with my tight busy days, i will try my best to do'a for you as much as i can.
