Rizalman for Zalora

A package I was waiting for. Dying for it to at last reach it’s destination.

It was supposed to be delivered after the 24th of June, but somehow I received an email from Zalora informing that my package is on the way to my doorstep. Well, not literally.

It all started during study week. Yes! Study week of my profesional exam. Crazy or what? Thankful to Allah, He let me pass. Alhamdulillah. Anyway, it started when I thought I had too much to read. Being a girl what other website could you possibly surfing other than online shopping website. Haha. Ok, scratch that. No, I’m not really an online shopping person. Actually I’m not sure what I was reading at the moment, well on the internet of course that I came across few names of Malaysian fashion designer.

Embarrassingly (should I?) names such as Jovian Mandagie, Rizalman Ibrahim, Nurita Harith and Syomir Izwa was only known to me during that time. Yes! During study week. So much of knowing the diseases…. -.- I was impressed of course that Malaysian has these designers that design superbly gorgeous line of clothing that I cried not only looking at the designs they made but also at those really heavy price tags (well, for me it is)

However, due to my inability to contain my lust towards the clothing line I decided to purchase one. Which one I chose to buy, LOL. I really like the designs by Nurita Harith but after some time of stalking them on facebook and twitter and judging the followers that they have (huh?) I decided to purchase Rizalman for Zalora.

But of course, every purchase has their own story. Actually, I had dinner to attend to after the exam. It’s the last dinner for my batch, so….yah…hence, I was in need of the dress.

Without thinking and looking at it really through I clicked, and clicked and clicked… and I was horrified to found out that it would only be delivered after the 24th of June. Silly me, when the dinner was in May. Yayness to my stupidity.

My mum. A mum. Hehe, she belanja me a new dress 🙂 Therefore I end up with this one

Syira Salmon Dress by Syomir Izwa. What was supposed to be the first designer dress I’ve ever bought became second. At least this one is cheaper and! amazingly comfy 🙂

For the dress I bought from Zalora? Yah, weird enough that the package was delivered yesterday and I had to go to HUKM to pick up the package.

IMG_4063Hell yah it’s here! I was so happy I almost ripped it open in the car. But, I managed to hold myself up until I reach home

IMG_4064Oooo yeahhhh

rizalman-3242-470921-1-zoomOf course that’s not me. Gorgeous gila kan?! The fabric is just amazing, the way it fall is superb and the belt add up the spice to that dress

So what happen to that dress since my dinner is a history?

Hehe

It will become my baju raya and my convocation dress (yay me! save ma budget)

Naksan Park

There are three places in Seoul (well, according to where I’d visited) that I really love about….

First, is the Naksan Park

According to visitkorea website, Naksan Park gets its name from its camel hump-like appearance. In Korean ‘nakta’ means camel and ‘san’ means mountain. Yes, guys. It’s a mountain. What is so special about this place? For Hur, it’s the Rooftop Prince landmark (haha) and a spot where Yoona(?)-was-here.  Before you could reach the park you would have to pass through a neighborhood. Now, this is where the juicy part is. It is an art gallery neighborhood. Seriously. There were paintings almost everywhere. You can see paintings on the walls, houses and even stairs. They also made some really nice sculptors or some sort. I was very impressed. Some are just too cute I couldn’t resist but to stare and stare and stare.

DSC07355Well, somebody thought it was worth a shot for camwhoring….huahua

DSC07354

DSC07356Aww, it is just too damn cute! Even the store were decorated to please people like me who just can’t tolerate with cute things… (please don’t mind the meat store right next to it)

DSC07358Even the cafe 🙂 Nice name don’t you think?

DSC07395

DSC07361Does this camel got to do anything with the mountain’s name?

DSC07362This is not a painting…

Look a little closer

DSC07363Nice!

DSC07391Oh! oh!

20130512_104041

Pengsan~

DSC07392

DSC07394

20130512_104310Of course, me too. Wanna have my moment. But Hur, should’ve asked me to pose in a more appropriate posture rather than this awkward butt-off pose -.-”

DSC07398

20130512_104716According to Hur, this picture was taken because some of the Korean drama that she watched would have a scene in this place of some sort. What is this three instruments placed on a pavement in a middle of the neighborhood? Not sure, but I can only say that perhaps it’s a mini gym.

DSC07360This picture is just to remind you of the hilly road. So fellow travelers, please be prepared not only mentally, but physically as well.

At last, we reached Naksan Park

DSC07365

DSC07366Naksan Gallery, if you’re interested to know more about this place then this is the place to be. As for us, we really just want the pictures…hehe

DSC07368Somebody is enjoying herself until she discovers….

20130512_102845More hills. Haha…Couldn’t get any better.

DSC07369

DSC07372The view, the weather. I bet runners or joggers would have love to come here but, mind you. It’s very HILLY!

20130512_101701

20130512_102841View from above

DSC07370Look at that face. The face says it all to finally find a place to sit..hahaha

DSC07386After all those horrible long walks of up and down the hill, we finally reached here. This is the only reason why we were up there enjoying nature. Tetttt! There’s really nothing there, it’s just a park. If only we know where are these things were, we would’ve not gone up the park. It was near to the entrance. So guys, if you are like us (Hur) which is just to get hold of the Rooftop prince landmark, do not go up the hill. Upon reaching the entrance, turn to the right until you find this!

20130512_103744There are 5 art pieces altogether

20130512_103412This is the landmark Hur was dying to look for

20130512_103320Look who’s a happy child again,haha. Nah, I gave you a big picture here.

But, my favorite art piece would be….

20130512_103211This one! 🙂

DSC07378A man and a dog overlooking the neighborhood. Simple, yet has it’s own meaning to it

It’s a shame that we couldn’t spend more time there cos actually there are a lot more art works that we hadn’t found yet. Hidden between the alleys and houses. For future travelers who has this thing about cute stuffs like me, I would advise you to google up all the art pieces and art works that they have there around the neighborhood. So that you wouldn’t miss looking for it like I did. Sad~ 😦

Anyway, it was really nice being there

🙂

Apple Backpackers Guesthouse, Seoul Korea

As anticipated, Unifi was installed today. Weehuu! At last my own wifi! Anyhoo, let’s cut to the chase. My trip to Korea.

So, our accommodation during the trip was a guesthouse and we’d chosen Apple Backpackers. Why?

1. The room rate was cheap in view of our budget

2. Private toilet

3. Near to Subway station

4. Near to Insadong

5. Near to Incheon airport limousine bus stop

You can simply email the owner to ask anything related to this guesthouse.

This is the entrance of the guesthouse. It’s like a shop lot.

971161_420869748010927_1566237064_nDirection to Apple Backpackers and the sibling, Banana Backpackers.

935306_423453644419204_588229582_nOnce you enter the door, you would be welcome by a stairs first hehe. Well, good luck dragging up those luggage up the stairs! and once reached the second floor you will see this counter where the owner will be sitting there. You can do the registration and Q&A session here

400973_423453611085874_474318149_nThis is the pantry, where sometimes we had our breakfast here. There’s coffee, and tea, so suit yourself

302216_327334710697765_663351225_nThe laundry room. We only did our laundry once. Free, but the dryer machine was charged at 2000 won per use. Hur kept telling me that some of her clothes shrunken. Yeah right~ (LOL)

936874_423453871085848_998920462_nThis is our room. We booked for a double room, but was given a triple room instead. Not sure why they gave us this room but I was grateful cos I got to sleep at the queen bed and poor Hur slept at the single bed. Huahuahua. There are still spaces to perform solat so it’s not that cramped and it’s really comfy 🙂 Every time we finished our sight-seeing and strolling for a day, I would always be looking forward to sleep! haha. Diving into that comfy duvet….woah~ Amazing I tell you

Apple2Sorry for the messiness of this room. My sis who only stayed for 3 days booked for a single room but was given a family room instead. We can’t still figure out why though. Probably they run out of single room.

20130508_081727There’s a small table where we put our stuff mostly, food, Hur’s make up, yadaa yadaa.

20130508_081742Sorry if the toilet look unpleasant, but don’t be fool by the picture, the toilet is very clean! Heads up, no bidet yah and I really like the slipers. Haha.

935677_416813648416537_227690735_nBefore we head back to Malaysia, they took a picture of us and….

942483_423453101085925_1945659724_npaste it here.

Overall, I would recommend this guesthouse and rating for the comfortability is 5/5. Close to subway, has private toilet and the owners are friendly 🙂

Rattling

I know…I should be posting about my trip to Korea as promised but, my internet connection is giving me not just a headache but heartache. The slowness of it’s connection is just…so…so….unbearable. Can you imagine? if I were to put a snail at the end of my laptop to race with the uploading of a picture, the snail will already be at the other end and the picture is still uploading!!! celcom! what the hack dude?! so much of usain bolt!!!

Anyway,I couldn’t take it anymore and I am currently waiting impatiently for Unifi to come this Saturday. Hopefully the line is better. I promise I will update once Unifi settled in my house. I’m already seeing myself early in the morning sipping coffee while surfing internet like there’ll never be tomorrow…ahhh~ ok,drama queen.

Preparations for the Trip

Booked the flight ticket of course. It’s a 6 hour journey so please be fully prepared of things that you need to bring along to ‘cheer’ you up during that horrible long hour journey especially when you got a seat in uncomfortable crammed plane (and here i am  complaining while planning a trip to London)

Discussion, discussion, discussion. There were a lot of meetings where we would compare notes? as to where and what we will be doing. We even have a notebook that contained almost everything about the trip. Yah! Everything! Thanks to my sis Farah, she’s the one who did all the compiling. Hehe

IMG_0521We listed the accommodation and compared the room, and prices. We chose Apple Backpackers 🙂 The must have for the room we wanted was a private toilet.IMG_0516We discussed the places we would like to visit. Most of the places listed are searched by Farah and Hur. Me? LOL, I just agree to wherever they wanna go cos dude, I don’t really care. I wanna go out from Malaysia for the trip, noktah.IMG_0522A day-to-day plan. Now for this part, I suggest you guys to not plan them so ambitiously like what my sis and Hur did. Visit here and there in the morning, evening and night. Seriously guys, you would get so tired of all the walking, plus sesat, plus climbing stairs of stairs if you were to use the subway…. you’ll need that rest. So if you were to plan, please include rest in the daily activity cos believe me, you’ll be needing that. I told them before and of course talking to girls who Gila Korea is like talking to a wall. Geez~IMG_051595% of our travelling was with the subway so directions are very important. We listed the station and exit. Guys, guys, guys. If you were to use the subway as much as we do please ensure you get the correct Exit! Because the distance between each exit is far what not with their generous stairs and also ensure the correct line you are taking cos they have like countless number of lines. Malaysia got like what,5? KTM, ERL, Monorail etc? IMG_0514Ohoho, this one is very,very importantIMG_0519Farah so nice planning the everyday budget.HeheIMG_0520This is also by Farah. Hehe 🙂IMG_0517Oh yah, this is also a vital part. Discussed what to bring and what to use there, few of the things that we bring along was;

sabun Taharah for samak

plug adapter

canned food eg. the one we bought was Adabi canned food. Oh! Oh! the sambal kupang was pretty awesome wei!

clothing wise, we asked our friend that is studying there about the weather and the temperature. We went early May, and they are entering summer. So not too cold and not that hot-like-Malaysia. I brought 2 jacket (not the thick one yah) and Alhamdulliah, I did alright. Oh ya! PLEASE, ensure the jacket/coat that you bought has real pockets ok. Not a fake-just-to-show-off-pocket (bwahahahahaha). Not all the time you’ll be carrying your backpack, trust me.

praying compas (must have guys and must know how to read also la)
IMG_0526
After sending Farah at the Airport, we found this. Awwww~ So sweet! 😉

We brought the notebook almost everywhere. You’ll probably see it in some of the pictures that’ll be posted later. It was seriously very helpful and beneficial. Trust me when I say without it I don’t know what will happen to us after Farah went back. Haha. Notebook, maps, T-money (upcoming post), passport, mineral water, camera and you’re good to go.

Next blogposts I’ll be talking about the accommodation that we had chosen, praying, and places visited. To make your life a lot easier, my posts title will be based on the places that we had visited so that once you typed the place in Google search, hopefully my blog will be chosen to appear in the list. Hehe

Trip to Korea

Alas I’m gonna start posting about my trip to Korea. I know, there IS some of you that has been itching to hear these stories to be told but bare in mind there YOU, it’s not gonna be a pretty one for YOU (you know who you are…LOL)

I would like to give a heads up for those who might stumbled across my blog while you were planning and searching about trips to Korea. My blogposts wouldn’t contain a SPECIFIC direction as to how I got there. But here and there might have pictures to guide you as to how the place look like.

So, for a start. Why Korea? To tell you the truth, Korea was never the first place I would like to visit. I am more of those who would love to travel to the Western country. It’s complicated as why do I chose this country but just so you know I was never the one labeled with Gila Korea. I am not the kind of girl who drooled so much over Korean artist as much as I love Daniel Craig or Jeremy Renner. The purpose of this trip is really as a gift for myself for passing the exam 🙂 (so, never was I whining when I couldn’t find landmarks or statues of certain Korean drama at the places where we visited. Hahahahaha)

I went there with my sister (who’ve been there for only 3 days) and my friend, Hur. We went on our own account, no travelling agents involved. This is a pure on-your-own-risk. For those who are planning a trip like us, I can give you the pros; no schedule involve so you can have your own sweet time at the places visited as long as your heart content, you get to experience the wonders of being lost (bwhahahaha!) but hey! This one is true. You get to be helped by a handsome european guy, language barrier ahjumma who is trying so hard to explain to us the direction, being greeted by other tourists and Korean students who studied about Islam and get praised by ahjumma for being pretty cos we are wearing the scarf.

Sorry guys, have to stop now. My abdominal cramp is killing me. Will continue later. Next post : prep before the trip

Passing by…

The sun is shining….though I could still feel the morning breeze…well,just a little. A cuppa coffee. It’s 8.01am in the morning. It’s really, really, really been a while since I posted any updates here. Well, as you’d been informed I was gearing up for my final exam couple of months ago…

and Alhamdullilah. 🙂 I passed the exam.

Three days after the result I went for a trip to Korea for 9 days, then I went for a cousin wedding in Perlis for 3 days and here I am, barely breathing the air of ‘temporary’ freedom while awaiting the ‘calling’ letter to arrive.

There, I’d lighted for you some heads up for my upcoming posts… Right now, I got guests to attend to.

Will keep updating soon 🙂

Izat

Fuuuuuhhh~ Uhuk! Uhuk! Uhuk!

This blog is so dusted that I forgot what my password was!

This will be my last post before the final exam which would be in exactly 26 days more plussing the study weeks…

There had been a lot going on; I’d sent the KKM form in which there is exactly 3 hospital options I had decided on, Dan Brown is realeasing a new novel titled Inferno that I happened to purchase via Maybank2u with 30% off (yay me!), my parents are leaving for umrah this Thursday and? oh yah, I hadn’t been running for 3months (and it’s killing me!)

…….

Only those who knows me, know that I am being called as Izat.

The story started since I was in secondary school when there were too many students name Izzati that I get so annoyed when I tend to answer quickly when other people is calling other Izzati. My friends told me to have a short name. Me, being me, not the lady-like girl…. Zatie, or let alone Atie?! were never an option. So Izat was chosenand it stuck till now….

Back then… I get a lot of stories when my friend was telling stories to their parents, few of the friends’ name got mentioned and one of them was me… All the other friends’ name was girl-sounded name and when it comes to me, there would be a pause where they had to tell the parents that it’s a girl.

Once I called a friend

Me : Boleh cakap dgn ……?

Receiver : Sapa ni?

Me : Izat

Receiver : ….Izat call!

….. came and we had a talk. Before ended the call she told me she had to swear to her mother that Izat is a girl

LMAO

and now, I still get them surprisingly… a story from my friend, when she was having a conversation with her boyfriend via phone

Scene 1#

Friend : I’m going out to bazaar to buy some food

The boyfriend : With who?

Friend : With (a guy’s friend) and Izat

……

Scene 2#

Friend : I got rings as a birthday present from Izat

……

See?!

Haha!

It would have come out wrongly if you don’t know Izat is a girl right?

LOL!

It’s just hilarious to hear these stories being told up till now 🙂

Yes, I am called Izat for those who didn’t know… and for those who know, now you guys know why I was called with that name….

By the way, it was extra weird when some of my juniors had to call me kak IZAT…LOL

Less than 2 months and Counting!

Hello there reader(s?).

I realised that it has been quite sometime since I last updated my blog. As you can see, there are less than 2 months before my big exam aka the last exam I will about to take as a medical student or in my own word, “exam to become a doctor”

Few issues were raised throughout my ‘dormant’ state. Some heads up;

Countless people had been asking me, yet again “kenapa dah tak nampak jogging?” Be it a simple question or a mocking statement (cos they asked me when we bumped after they had their jog…of course me, being me -sarcasm is my second language- my reply was “don’t worry, i don’t jog to get skinny.LOL). I am hereby declaring that, I wouldn’t be joining/going to any jog/run up till I finish my pro exam. Please don’t get a picture that I would go straight to the park right after my last paper =.=”

Second is my target this year; to join HM. I had registered for the SCKLM 2013 but it was for the 10km category as you can see, the event will be held in June, I finished my paper by end of April, by May (hopefully I pass my exam…. AMINNNN) I’m flying about here and there, minus all those and waste awful lotta money on some random places and things, so I would be left with only 3days pre-HM? yah, so, let’s not get myself kill shall we? it won’t be enough for me to pull out the ‘anjakan paradigma’ for HM with that sipi punya time kan?

Another most important thing is thatttttt~ *drumrolls*, SPA is out! Few more weeks we will filling up those annoying forms to request for our housemanship workplace, and I’m telling ya, there are no more doubts as to where I would wanna be posted to. Hopefully I’ll be able to get that hospital. Insya Allah 😀

Wish me and all of us luck peeps! Till then.
