i just bought my own wireless broadband, now i can surf whenever i wish! haha. and i guess its time to finally update blog yang dah bersawang nih. =p
dah sebulan++ started internship @ klcc. i have to admit, mmg kadang2 rasa cool dapat intern with petronas. i know most people say intern dkt klcc boring,xde keje sume but i beg to differ. yes, mmg sometimes you tend to get bored in the office doing nothing, tp actually you are the one who choose not to do something. there are a lot of things to do, resources are all around you lah! its up to you to look for it.
besides, how come klcc can even be boring? food lover like me could enjoy so many foods-tu baru dalam suria! Paling kurang pun boleyh window shopping after 5pm, free-read dkt kinukoniya or just lepak2 depan tasik klcc tuh. sangat nice =)
living in kl
all this while, my life has been simple. sekolah duduk asrama, uni pun all stay in-campus. that is why im excited to finally have a taste of the 'real life'. living in a small flat in the city, sharing together with 5 dear friends- what else could i possibly hope for? im lovin it right now.
yeah, living in kl has it own set of challenges, and everyone knows, but, i actually feel grateful because i myself is experiencing these challenges. All the cramming in LRT, rocketing food price etc. Those things taught me alot more than i anticipated. i trully am grateful.
19/4/09: 6 weeks left before internship begin, and yet, we haven't found a place that we could call 'home' for the next 8 months. So, considering the time that we still have, minus exam weeks and all, we figured yesterday was the best time to start our seach (plus, monday is holiday in perak).
And so we went. honestly, i thought it's going to be easy.I was wrong.
Since we never had any experiences searching house for rent, I especially, was cluelless on how to even begin. Luckily, my dear friends were more 'proactive' than me..haha. We found several ads promoting house/room for rent. We called several of them.
The first one. We called, and the owner gives all the details. It sounded good, in the phone. We said we wanted to see the house (its actually a flat). We met and he took us to show the place. Along the way, we thought this was perfect, after hearing everything he said. Wrong again.
Even before we entered, i personally was very suprised to see the building," RM 500/month for a place like this??" (again i have to say, this is my first time searching a place in kl). It got worse when we entered inside.I kept on pretending as if i like the place, nodding all the time . The others did the same.
We searched again. Whenever there were ads, we called. Some were either too expensive, or too far away.
Second place.It was quite far. Far enough that we accidently took the wrong lrt route!..haha sengal. The conditon of the house was fine,better than the previous, but the surroundings really2 make me uncomfortable.
You see, I'd never lived in a city before. Seeing so many people, trying to live in a same place. Kids were everywhere.... Every wall was covered with vandalisme.... All these caught me off guard. At that point, i kept thinking about how grateful i should be towards my parents, my life...
We took a break for awhile. Then, my friend got a phone call.Its from a young lady, only a few years older than we are. He actually had already contact her few days ago, and told that we were coming today. She said she was available and could show us her place. We were pretty tired but we decided to go. That's the best decision we did.
When we first met her, we could tell she was good. The flat that she showed us wasnt bad at all, considering what we had seen all day, this was definitely the winner. Its not too shabby, the surrounding was cosy, easy access to food, transport. It was perfect for me. Heh.
We spent the rest of the day at klcc, where I bought myself a gorgeous necktie, hehe. And so we went back that day feeling relieved now that we finally have a place to live. =)
challenges are thrown to us every single day, so we can be better than last time. too little challenges make us weak, stagnant, hopeless..dry without passion. but too much challenges bring nothing but depression, self-pity..disgust. too much of failure can crush that last piece of hope remains within.
sometimes i do wonder when, will all these horrible experiences go away. *sigh
midsem break has FINALLY arrived. after a straight 9 looong weeks, living on the run, keeping tabs with everything, all those endless reports...no point listing them in here. hah
1. utp internet service has gone one step BELOW WORST. its unacceptable. Everything connected to google ( gmail, blogger etc.. ) cant be open! how insane is that?? dah la gmail n gtalk tu boleh kata 99% utpian guna utk communicate with each other. cehh. harapkan wireless yang macam chipsmore. kejapadakejapX ada.
2. engineering team project aka etp. unbearable. punca no 1 sem ni kadang2 jadi psychotic x tentu pasal.
3. family - baru dapat tahu my adik been offered to enter kisas. mom's really happy, ada jugak la anak dia nnt boley jadi ustaz =p
4. internship - lega dah dapat placement offer. honestly, a bit shocked cause it came earlier than i expected. x start applying on my own pon lagi ( habit procastinate ni masih menebal dlm sanubari..haha). x kisah sgt tempat kat mana as long as it's not in perak. i really2 need to step out of my comfort zone. dah update. hah.
