Who moved my lemang?

Its the 3rd Raya. Comin onto the 4th. My pockets are still empty. They long for lil raya packets filled with paper money. :D. My tummy is yearning for Cik Mimi's rendang and Auntie Tilda's semprit.

May said that she cant feel the Raya spirit here. Yea well, neither do I. We're all not on holidays. Some of my friends r even havin their finals. If we were back in Msia, we'd all be on holidays enjoying time with our families. But we're not. Coz this is what we want. We've worked hard to get here and Alhamdulillah Allah has granted us the chance to study overseas. This is part and parcel of the whole international student experience.

Even though you can't feel or see the festive Raya spirit as u trudge around to each of your classes at Uni, u can take the initiative to inject some Raya spirit into ur days and conversations. Little things that boost your morale, like wearing ur kebaya to your math test, or eating Msian food with ur Msian frens, or playing wit sparklers or singing Raya songs at the top of your lungs in the *cough* van.

Mmg la tak nmpk pakcik jual lemang kat tepi UNSW nyer walkway tu or advert raya Petronas kat channel 10 lepas Australian Idol tapi semangat Raya tu kan kluar bile lepak ngan kekawan reramai, makan satay Wak Sam sambil amik gamba cam tak pernah nmpk kamera n cam tak pernah jumpa 5 tahun even tho baru balik class sesama. :D.

Its the company that matters I guess. Tho nothing beats home, the people u love here can also make u feel happy what. So slamat hari raya peeps. Maaf Zahir Batin. *hugz*

ps: i admit that this is an attempt to make ME feel better. Not just to make everyone else feel less homesick. :P

Therapeutic Ramblings
A dash of Disney, a sprinkle of pop punk, lashings of sweet treats, a pinch of superheroes, bundles of laughter and a tinge of crankyness.

Floats my Boat
People I love. Music. Sweet treats. Singing animals. Movies. Princes. Books. Fables. Hindustan Heroes.

Sinks my Ship
Rude people working in hospitality and sales. Long queues. Idiots CUTTING long queues. People who Patronise.

Wishlist
To finally figure out what I'm meant to do. To travel the world. To eat anything without gaining ungodly amounts of weight. To get my happily ever after. :)
