Coffee or tea?
Walking in the rain
The day after that rainy day, I could see the sunshine again. What a relief! So, I just wore my t-shirt and my skinny pants (lol!). I went out to go to the class again. It was fine for a while but I couldn’t believe it was windy and still cold even in the afternoon. What? In Malaysia if the sun is as bright you will be sweating like crazy.
I know I am very bad with maps. So, I do not even have to say about this. People keep providing me with so many maps and directions. In the end I end up lost! Things just look very different with the mix of old and new buildings …
No water hose?
Party all night!
People just party every night! Especially during freshers’ week. Even in my flat, every room looks busy with party. In fact, nobody asked me to join them (lol!).
In Malaysia, it feels like I can eat anything and grab anything that I want to eat from the shopping mall. But it is not heaven like that here. It seems like I need to be really careful every time to find halal food. In the end, I am going for the vegetarian choice! Lucky me…
I bought some bananas and apples from Tesco. I was so happy! (lol!). So, I went back to my flat and went to kitchen to keep them in the refrigerator. I opened the refrigerator and put my bananas and apples in it. Next day, I opened the refrigerator and took out my apples and bananas. They were as hard as rock! Lol! I realized that I had put them in the freezer. I am used to the refrigerator with the freezer on the top, so, I made a mistake here…lol!
International student…..egh…International accent!
It is great that studying here means I can meet with so many people from around the world. As English is my second language, I can practise using it here. As soon as I came here, I just realized that it is not that easy to practise. There are so many types of English to cope with. Even UK people themselves sound very different depending which part they come from. Then at the same time I need to listen carefully to the people who come from other countries where English is maybe their second, third or fourth - or whatever number is relevant - language. Oh, by the way, I also need to catch up on the content! What a great experience right? :D
Sometimes I do believe that robots have already taken over this world. It seems like everywhere I go in the university I will go through automatic doors. Swipe your card here, swipe your card there… I even saw A4 paper pasted on the door saying “Automatic Door”. I still cannot get used to it and am very nervous that I will slap my face on the door….haha
No complaints. I’m the one who chose to come and study here. So, let’s just face it then. By the way, I think it is enough to write a few things for now because I believe I can write more and more and more. Cheers! (I copy this ‘cheers’ word from a guy on a bike who said cheers to me after I gave way to him. lol)
p/s: fried rice evryday at the moment...lol! Easy to cook and I can put anything I want in it! :D
