Tis a lovely day aye Is it not a beautiful day Fear not the darkness comes night For thou art in His Grace, His Light~ ~ExLibris~
I woke up a bit late today, but still had time for my morning jog. Today we took the long route, where it is much hilly and i get more prone to my knee pains. Our slow jog today took us 24 minutes to finish the whole university, lets keep track of my progress shall we. Last weekend after exams, me and a couple of friends went on a short excursion to Anyer, Jakarta. If anyone wants to go there, hope this can be a guide to you.

So, to begin with, i wanted to drive there, but after thinking it over, and having to drive at 2 am in the morning for 5 hours, i decided not to in the end. There were 6 of us all in our pyjamas that fateful Saturday morning, we had spent the night before cooking for our picnic needs.


1. bihun goreng and ayam goreng (a must for Nadya Amin)
2. nasi goreng kampung
3. egg and sardine sandwhich
4. cokodok (cekodok)
5. keropok
6. miscellaneous

Things to bring on a picnic:

1. picnic basket
2. tikar
3. newspaper
4. extra plastic bags
5. tissue wipes
6. sunglasses and a nice outfit to look keren abisss.. =P

Our transport, was a kijang and driver, and total cost of transport back and forth was

1. 375k for kijang
2. 200k for petrol
3. 100k for tol

A decent speed to drive took us 3 hours to reach Jakarta, and another 2 hours to reach Anyer. When you reach Anyer, there a re lots of beaches and all of them are owned, so you would have to pay around 5k for a beach although some of it are free. There are actually 2 parts of the beach, Pantai Anyer and Pantai Carita which is a bit further of. I think Carita is where we settled down. These beaches are actually in the region of Banten, in the outskirts of Jakarta. We got ourselves a beach in front of a villa, even though we did not take the villa until later. I had to use my acting charms a bit =P cewah! Anyway, if you decide to stay a night at a villa there, most of it would cost around 1 juta, but very comfortable and you can fit more than 10 people so it is considered cheap once you calculate it.

Anyway, when we arrived, it took us a loong time to find a nice spot, most of the beaches had lots of rocks, and it was raining too. We were all in our gloomiest mood. But once we settled down, unpacked our stuff, and made Mr Tummy happy, the sun was shining and we were ready to hit the waves! Boy the waves were super-duper high! Oh, you can actually see Krakatao from most parts of the seaside, so that is a plus point on the trip.

Some beaches offer jet ski, banana boat and other water sports but they are quite costly. Some are just nice to roll around in the sun and make yourself a sandcastle. Some of us really just dashed into the waves ala2 baywatch yang gemok gedempol. while some just laid in the sun, enjoying the breeze. While on a trip to the beach, make sure you wear suitable clothing, especially if you want to play in the water. The waves were big, so our clothes kept doing summersaults. For breaks in between crazy laughing from the cool waves, bring games that everyone can play with. We brought a frisbee that was thrown away by the wind, a ball that was too lembik to play with and the twister game that made you want to pee out of laughter, oops!

All in all, i loved the trip, even though it was short, it was enough to recharge our senses before we started to nerd-ify ourselves again.

ps: internet sucks photos keep failing to upload =(

Call me freedom!

Good morning!

internet troubles, i am facing again and again =( It took me around 3 hours to properly connect today, whatttt~~~

I just finished my treasure hunt of medical records, i have been going for weeks to the hospital to get consent to see the hundreds of medical records that i have to go through for my thesis. At last, yesterday, that hunt came to an end after endless bribery, painstaking running up and downs and countless hours being dizzy about it all. So, this weekend, pray that i can finally finish rounding up the data and do my chapter 4 and 5. By the way, for my juniors, when you are in your 4th year, please dont even think about taking medical records, like seriously! There is so much bureaucracy that you have to go through, that experiments seem as easy as peas.

I know everyone is facing tough times nowadays, some of us may not have enough money at the moment, some may be worrying about their thesis, some of us just have issues and problems that is hard to face. I know i do. Sometimes you feel helpless as thoughts fly around in your mind when you are alone but can disappear for awhile when you are among people who care and love for you. So surround you with them, and think happy thoughts. If you cant, atleast try to. Same advice goes to me =) Dont just stay cooped up in your room, maybe take a stroll where the air is fresh. For Jatinangorians, i recommend the university as a place to walk in the late afternoons where you can have a moment to gain some peace of mind. I jog in the afternoons to feel calm. Sometimes I can feel the breeze wisps by me with His Zikr, and His embrace as I thread down the open paths, because the more steps we take towards Him, the closer He comes to us right~

Lets de-stree, de-tox oursleves and be free..Take a moment to breathe, and stop right there, because we need to calm ourselves in times where we are most frantic. Free ourselves from the burden of the worlds, because every burden makes us stronger to face the world. No matter how bad everything seems now, Thank God we still have our eyes to see, Thank God we still have a brain to think and Thank God we still have a heart and soul to live~

Anyway, today is all about celebrating and rejoicing life, it is a friday after all. The most holy day of the week. So, why feel down in the dumps when we can wake up and open our eyes, smile and love ourselves more than ever! This morning, my playlist is stuck to this song which I would like to share with everyone today, if you are down and dont have the feeling to go through the day or even this morning, then listen to this.

Do you watch football, because if you do, then you would most probably know that this song has been chosen for the FIFA 2010 anthem! yeayy!

When i get older, they'll call me freedom
Just like a Waving Flag.

When I get older, I will be stronger,
They'll call me freedom, just like a Waving Flag,
And then it goes back, and then it goes back,
And then it goes back

Born to a throne, stronger than Rome
but Violent prone, poor people zone,
But it's my home, all I have known,
Where I got grown, streets we would roam.
But out of the darkness, I came the farthest,
Among the hardest survival.
Learn from these streets, it can be bleak,
Except no defeat, surrender retreat,

So we struggling, fighting to eat and
We wondering when we'll be free,
So we patiently wait, for that fateful day,
It's not far away, so for now we say


So many wars, settling scores,
Bringing us promises, leaving us poor,
I heard them say, love is the way,
Love is the answer, that's what they say,
But look how they treat us, Make us believers,
We fight their battles, then they deceive us,
Try to control us, they couldn't hold us,
Cause we just move forward like Buffalo Soldiers.

But we struggling, fighting to eat,
And we wondering, when we'll be free
So we patiently wait, for that faithful day,
It's not far away, but for now we say,

[Chorus] 2x

(Ohhhh Ohhhh Ohhhhh Ohhhh)
And everybody will be singing it
(Ohhhh Ohhhh Ohhhhh Ohhhh)
And you and I will be singing it
(Ohhhh Ohhhh Ohhhhh Ohhhh)
And we all will be singing it
(Ohhh Ohh Ohh Ohh)

[Chorus] 2x

When I get older, when I get older
I will be stronger, just like a Waving Flag,
Just like a Waving Flag, just like a Waving flag
Flag, flag, Just like a Waving Flag

If only it would make everyone happy

Im sitting at the hospital right now,eating chocolate out of my hands..a little girl sat looking at the one piece of chocolate that i was eating,and i took a bite too the last bit of chocolate slid down my throat,i wish i had given it to the little girl. She looked forlorn as she and her father were waiting at the health counter,maybe waiting for a treatment but at the moment not able to afford it. If only i could give her the chocolate,maybe it would have made her be continued,i have to ru down to see the medical records now.late
