School


❝Hi!
My name is Farah and I am first semester student doing Masters of World Literature (without thesis)❞

That is how I have been introducing myself for two days in a row now.
I've been to two classes so far and I am somewhat feeling pretty tired!
I still have one more class on Thursday.
I've already received my reading assignments and presentation dates.
It still kinda feels surreal,
being back in school.
But I am loving every minute of it (so far)!
I have to, for now, get my hands on 12 novels and start reading.
With every class the number of novels for me to do keeps increasing!
Eeeeeks!!

p/s: remember to enter my giveaway!

Friends


Well,
I've had a really interesting weekend.
Basically what I needed in a while.
I met up with some friends on Christmas, and then some on the next day.
It was fun.
Especially the next day, we had dinner and then we went dancing.
It was really funny, it was a long time since I went out like that and all the attention I got was pretty refreshing.
Sorry there are no pictures, I was just way too busy having fun.
My feet hurt, I haven't had enough sleep but hey, I'm actually feeling light hearted.
I guess, there is much more to life than just being worried, freaking out and angst.

Tonight would be my first class for the semester.
And the lecturer is someone that I have taken classes from before, so I expect it to be a bit fun and kind of laid back.
See how that goes I guess.
Eeeeks, wish me luck!!

Words

Words like these just blow me away..


You asked if I miss you. I wouldn't know, I've never missed anyone before in my life, I've never cared enough. If missing you is having a gaping chasm in the middle of my chest, wanting to run to wherever you are, and feeling miserable all the bloody time, then yes, Harry, I do miss you. I hope you are missing me. You didn't say in your letter and I am trying not to care, but I do, I care more than I would ever let on.

You said you can't stop thinking about me, well I feel the same. You are in every mirror, every pair of eyes, every laugh I hear. I think of you first thing in the morning and I hate you last thing at night because you are not with me. I don't love you because I don't know what love is. All I know is that I need you more than anything else and you are not here, and it has to be this way.❞

No Excuse

Hello everybody!

So sorry that I have been missing in action, but seriously I have just been extremely busy attending weddings and more weddings. Remember what I said about December being the month of weddings? Well on Sunday alone I attended two lunches and one dinner! So since last Sunday (6/12) I have been pretty exhausted attending all wedding related events and traditions; and the madness continues this coming Saturday and Sunday! Insane.

The worst part of dressing up is the undressing! When you come home from the function or whatever and then you have to remove the makeup-not cool! Sometimes I wish I could just skip everything and go right to bed, but of course me being completely weird OCD; I need to have a shower before I go to bed!

But this time I didn't take any pictures of myself all dolled up. Can I say that I was totally distracted with all the outfit planning? Yeap, I said it. I planned my outfits in advance. I know right, such a girl!

I hope this was a reason enough for all of y'all to forgive me for my unplanned absence here. On my defense I was still regularly reading up on everyone's updates! See that's how much I love y'all! ;)

Lastly, thank you to my lovely blog buddy Nico, for giving me this humane award! Love ya buddy! ;)

Mind Your Beeswax!!

I don't if many of you notice, but every few months I get the urge to go through the Neiman Marcus site just to browse and then subsequently be depressed (because I can't afford anything). On this visit I fell totally in love with these Judith Lieber creations. It's a nice break from the usual butterflies don't you think (although butterflies will always remain close to my heart)? I am totally digging these...


I am not even going to bother saying anything about the price tags but seriously, Neiman Marcus makes me wana be a mafia lord (so that I can afford these things or better yet, scare people into giving things for free!).

Happy Birthday Big Brother!

Dear Big Brother,

Happy 33rd Birthday!
It still feels like yesterday that you were still in med school and I used to call you and tell you all about my crushes.
I remember how all of us back home would sit down and write you letters when you were doing your pre-med course.
It's been ages since we had those carefree times.
I know that right now we all have a lot on our plates, each of us siblings have our own demons to deal with.
But I know that no matter what, you will answer when I call.
A bit late, but you will still answer.
We both know that this year has brought us many, many disappointments.
Us disappointing each other.
Us disappointing ourselves.
But I believe that you still had my back and I, yours.
I guess over the years this is how our relationship has evolved.
From brother you have become and most definitely are a father figure to me.
I don't say that to make you feel old, I say it because it is true.
I know that there were times where you had more faith and believed in me more than mom and dad.
I know that when I first wore a short skirt, you freaked out like an overprotective dad.
I know that when I first started dating, you freaked out as a dad freaks out at the prospect.
But most of all I remember how the girls in upper secondary used to bribe me with ice cream so that I would tell you about them!
Well, I never did tell and I did eat all the ice cream!
Sorry girls.

Thank you so much big brother.
For realizing all the potential in me.
For criticizing me to become better.
For always being there for me, even when I think you are not.

Thank you so much big brother, for just being you.
I love you and will always be here for you as I know you will be for me.
Happy Birthday brother, have a good one!

Love,
Your Sister

Pink!

I was colour tagged but the lovely Sher to show you things that have the slightest shade of pink in them. Well, I hate to say this but I am not a pink kinda girl! Most of these things in my room were either given to me as presents or my mom, thinking that I was the only girl in the family, decided to drown me in as much pink as possible! Not cool! So without further ado, pinkness in my room...


A pair of indian style earrings-birthday present from my middle brother a few years ago


A Juicy Couture box-A birthday present from my eldest brother and family this year.
It's a purse, I'm not using it yet.
I'm waiting till my current one dies on me!


A G-STAR RAW tshirt from my middle brother and an Abercrombie tshirt from a friend.


Fairy lights-I bought these with soulsista on my birthday this year


Dora the Explorer pencil set-it was a gag gift on my 22nd birthday from my eldest brother and his business partner.


Hairband- it's pink!


My bed sheet-courtesy of mom.


Well, since now I have to colour tag a few other bloggers, I would like to see what purple coloured items you have in your room, it is after all my favourite colour! So I now tag


Your mission now, if you choose to accept (how mission impossible does that sound? although you have no choice but to accept! teehee) is to look around your house, room etc. for items that are purple in colour or have traces of purple in them, blog about it whenever, choose your colour & then tag other readers! Have fun loves!



p/s: I would have put up a picture of my hot pink nails but I already removed the colour to cut my nails. It was too long and got in the way. My mind works in retarded ways!

p/p/s: I just realised this tag is slightly voyeuristic, don't you think? well, without the sexual innuendo of course!

December


Eek its already December; Happy December guys! Sorry I haven't been blogging for almost a week now. I decided to take a little break. The truth would be I have been weighing my options if I should quit blogging or not and decided that I shouldn't, for the sole reason that I have met so many great ladies and lads that it would be a shame to just let that friendship go. So now, just to play catch up, randoms from the last week:
  • I know you guys will be pissed because I am telling you all so late (especially after all the bitching and moaning about how I might not get in) but, I got into my Masters Program! Yay for me! I found out on the morning of Eid (Friday) and was jumping up and down in my moms room. I am so so happy that I am going back to school! So so happy!
  • I got a manicure and pedicure (finally) and got my nails painted hot pink! I love it but my middle brother hates it! Says it looks tacky. And I said, 'Uhuh, whatever!'
  • I sent soulsista a birthday present through her parents, they went to visit her in Kangaroo land, and she loved it! *phew* It was a purse from Guess.
  • My middle brother came back early for Eid and we got to hang out and talk lots of rubbish! It was so much fun.
  • My mom made yummy yummy crabs for lunch, with prawns and other seafood. Thanks to the prawns I had allergies and had to take so much of medication to make the itch stop. Stupid prawns!
  • Am so happy that Glee is on! I really like the characters Puck and Quinn. But there has to be more to Puck than just being a horny teenage boy. Hmmmm....
  • Everyone is going crazy over New Moon but I on the other hand am really excited to watch the Princess and the Frog! It's Disney at it's best me thinks.
  • Am pretty bummed that there will be no Grey's Anatomy till January. How do they expect me to wait that long?! HOW??!!
  • Am currently thinking what to eat for breakfast. Too much of eggs give you real stinky farts!
  • Happy happy happy belated birthday darling Chels! xoxo
  • Adam Lambert kissing a dude on stage at his performance for AMA's, like seriously dude, we all know you are gay you didnt have to do that. See now, you have gotten yourself cut from the show. *tsktsktsk*
  • My cousin brother Reza is thinking of starting a book drive for the less fortunate and I am so excited for that. Only I hope it really does materialize.
  • Went for a wedding on Saturday night, it was really sweet. The bride looked so sweet and pretty. And since then, wedding fever has started in Penang. Every weekend there is a wedding to attend, not just one, a few. Well, December is wedding season after all.
  • Thanks to all who loved my eurolove posts. The fact that I am still receiving comments on it brings a smile to my face.
  • Am so happy that so many of you loved the guest post that I did for Manju. Maybe I should do a series of 'How To' posts! Guys beware! Ngehehehehehehehe!
  • Realised how utterly boring my hair was. Need to do something about it pronto!
  • Got some new followers to the blog. You guys made me so so happy. All of y'all really make my day better and brighter! Love!
  • Am thinking of having a giveaway for my 200th post. What say you ey?

Chuck & Blair

How weird is it that my idea of a perfect couple consists of
Chuck Bass & Blair Waldorf?
I am absolutely in love with them,
especially when they have those quiet moments together
talking in bed.
I adore the ending this week;
where she tells him that all she needs is Chuck.
*swoon*

You & Me


I cant find the words dear
Maybe the end is near
Maybe it's my demise
Maybe I dont want us to end

I just want you and me
sitting on a fallen tree
plucking stars from the night
roasting hearts in the sun

That would be paradise
A world where no one lives and dies
A world made just for us
A world made just by us

I know you disagree
"Love doesn't come free"
But Baby that will change
in our world of you and me

Sleeping Habits

Well my brothers came home for the weekend and the eldest brother came with his whole family including my darling nephew Danny. He has grown quite tall now and still cute as a button! Well everyone else left yesterday except for Danny. He is going to stay here for two weeks.

Anyways Danny has this habit that he has to play, touch and smell someone's hair to fall asleep, he is usually very picky about it. So last night he was sleeping with me, as usual he was playing with my hair to fall asleep. It wasn't so bad until I woke up at about 3.00am because my head was hurting. For a four year old he has got some grip! Everytime I would be so close to sleeping suddenly there'll be a *yank*! *sleepy**yank* *ow* *sleepy* *yank* *ow* the cycle continued until I managed to will myself to sleep.

My pillow and bedspread has hair all over it! This little monster is going to make me bald. I was complaining to my mom about it and told her that he is not sleeping with me tonight; she just laughed at me! That's my mom for you!

Love Happens

Aaron Eckhart and Jennifer Aniston, two exceptionally good looking people in my opinion, are reason enough to watch this movie!

This movie has a sweet and touching plot to it. Aaron Eckhart who plays Burke-a widower who profited from writing a self help book about how to cope the lost of a loved, how to get back on track with life. But in truth, it's been three years since the death of his wife and he still hasn't been able to deal with it.

In comes Eloise (Aniston) who just falls for the wrong guys all the time. Which results in her having her heartbroken in the end of every relationship that she has. At times when you see the character Eloise communicate with the people around her, it feels as though Aniston is just reprising her role as Rachel Green (from F.R.I.E.N.D.S. (duh!)but just less irritating). But even though it may be like that she is beautiful and natural nonetheless all through the duration of the movie. There is something about Jennifer Anniston that is just so lovable I think.

Even though Eckhart and Aniston are good actors, this is just a sweet and simple little movie that will put a smile on your faces; a chick flick all the way!

I Love You, Beth Cooper

I Love You, Beth Cooper is another teen flick movie about this nerdy, geeky boy who after years of pining after Beth Cooper finally has the guts to tell her that he loves her during his valedictorian speech on graduation. After that on chaos ensues.

And that my friends is the plot in a nutshell! I am serious about it.

There is nothing extra special about this movie, not even Hayden Panettiere! I swear to god she looks like her DNA got confused with whether to make her normal sized or as a little person. It is really really weird. She is so tiny!

I mean, I am pretty tiny as a person but I think I could probably squash her!

As for the story, it was alright. Pretty funny, especially the guys best friend. His name, Rich Munsch played by Jack Carpenter, is really cute and funny throughout the whole movie. He is incessantly quoting dialogues from movies and I find that so cute.

It's definitely recommended as a time filler, for one of those days when everything gets to you and you want to watch a no brainer type movie-this is it.

Jennifer's Body

So the last few weeks, I've been on a kind of movie marathon all by my lonesome and so I thought why not do some reviews.

First up is Jennifer's Body with Megan Fox and Amanda Seyfried. I thought it was an okay movie, it was a bit scary and had its share of gore to be labeled a horror movie. I'm going to try my best to not divulge any part of the plot.

As usual Megan Fox doesn't strike me as anything else other than eye candy for men. She did step up a teeny tiny bit from Transformers, acting skills wise, but she was definitely overshadowed by Amanda Seyfried. I loved her character and narration throughout the whole movie. But that was about it. Nothing else there to watch boys and girls.

I was quite literally looking elsewhere throughout the whole movie, not because I was scared but because I was too preoccupied doing something else. Says a lot doesn't that?

If you are a guy and are into girl action, there is a part where these two kiss. errr...I can't think of any other highlights for anyone else to watch this movie. Thinking about it now, it was quite bad.

But yeah if you are really into slasher movies, watch this. It would be a yardstick for you to measure all future slasher releases. Or if you are just really into Megan Fox, that works too.

Award Time!


Wootwoot! I just got awarded my second Kreativ Blogger from the lovely Jordan of Imperfectable. So as usual I have to list out seven things about myself that no one knows and proceed to tag seven others. So here goes!

1. I absolutely love reading fanfiction! I only read Harry Potter fics because I am weird like that! This is one of my favourite sites. ;)

2. I tried to redesign my blog yesterday and killed it!

3. I have a major craving for a double cheese burger.

4. Kinder Bueno is my kryptonite! It doesn't matter where or what I'm doing, if I see it I must have it!

5. I have stacks and stacks of magazines lying around in my room. I always tell myself that I am going to recycle it but I somehow never seem to get to it.

6. I am in dire need of new clothes; especially if I go back to school in December (pray for me loves that I do get an admission!).

7. I am really really shy when it comes to emailing my blog friends. I feel like such a retard. Hence the reason why I don't really email you all unless there is a question to be answered. I am so painfully shy!


On to tagging, would these lovely people; Nico, Heidi, DT, Nabila, Sawan, J. and Vicky. I just recently found their blogs and they are a such sweethearts. Love you guys!

Ordinary People


"Girl I'm in love with you
This ain't the honeymoon
Past the infatuation phase
Right in the thick of love
At times we get sick of love
It seems like we argue everyday

I know I misbehaved
And you made your mistakes
And we both still got room left to grow
And though love sometimes hurts
I still put you first
And we'll make this thing work
But I think we should take it slow

We're just ordinary people
We don't know which way to go
Cuz we're ordinary people
Maybe we should take it slow (Take it slow oh oh ohh)
This time we'll take it slow (Take it slow oh oh ohh)
This time we'll take it slow"



John Legends voice is like honey; warm, sweet and delicious.
I love this song and it has been stuck in my head since yesterday.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
Happy weekend loves.
xoxo

Just a Girl

I happened to watch Notting Hill today while eating dinner,
how I love this movie and Hugh Grant.

"After all I'm just a girl, standing in front of a boy, asking him to love her"
Love that quote.
I find it so true, after all we are all asking someone to love us-one way or another.

Happy Diwali!

Hey there guys, I successfully uploaded a video today on youtube and now instead of using blogger, which by the way doesn't ever function, I'll be using youtube instead.
Woohoo!
Ehem, anyways, since tomorrow is Diwali, the entire sky is alight with fireworks!
It's insane!
Each one of these babies cause about RM30-RM50 a pop (literally).
Check out the view from my window.


Let me know what you think of the video quality.
I was actually just using my digicam to record.

Again, wishing all who celebrate,
Happy Diwali!

p/s: Happy weekend to the rest of y'all!

Honeymoon Destination (??)

I've been craving to go to the beach, and I don't know why I started thinking about the Maldives. It seriously looks amazing! Aaaaah, the blue blue sea, white sandy beaches; heaven on earth. But apparently it's really quiet so it's more of the perfect honeymoon destination. *hint hint future husband*






This is an underwater restaurant 16 feet below sea level.
How kick ass is that? It's like being in a submarine but less claustrophobic!

Cupcakes & Me

Well I don't know how many of you remember this post?
After that post I actually went to my all time favourite place, Cupcake Chic, and like a good girl had only two.
Plus I realised it's been a long time since I've posted some of my shots,
so here they are.

It's okay to Cry

Remember this post?
Well, they finally broke up, again.
They have been in an on-off relationship for quite sometime and I can't remember how many times he has broken up with her.
Today my sweetheart of a friend called me and told me that they broke up two Sundays ago.
She was sobbing.
She didn't want to call me earlier because she was trying to be strong.
And she is strong.
Beautiful.
Smart.
And I know love will smile on her again.
So for now baby girl, it's okay to cry.
Remember, I'm just a phone call away.
