Uni life : Progressing

Time flies like an twinkling of an eye, it's been 5 weeks and we'll step into the month of July.

A quote says :

"Our life resembles a piece of song, and a beautiful song is composed of black keys and white keys."

I've gone through the black keys as soon as I reached this systematically urbanized city.
Just like the haze, after all are completely gone, I can now enjoy the clear view of the magnificent sky.

This bitter experience told me that

"It is better to have a same belief friend than to have a same hometown friend."

I'm not saying that different belief friend is bad,
it's just that, when you face times of difficulties, and when you seek for their help,
they won't abandon you but will give you some good helping advice, or the least of the least, pray.

From a functionalist point of view(learnt from sociology), there must be something good about anything.
In my case, it put me in a circumstances that trained my patience for 3 whole weeks,  it also made my parents learn to pray and lean on God when facing with troubles. This showed that their faith had really grown tremendously throughout this period.

God put me in a situation that is a total contradict to what I've been praying for- a good roommate. 
And after I've calm down my composure and regain my rational, I realized that this is one of God's mighty plan to polish His servant to become a more patient, have self-control and righteous Christian. 
I have never endure such myriad patience and self-control before. 
The old me would have thrown a big tantrum at that person and made awful decisions.

In a christian point of view, this is called Love.
Today during sermon by Pastor Collin Hurt, he quoted

"God so love us that He sent His only son to die for our sins, but He loved us even more that he didn't want to leave us just like that. "


He wants to mold and refine us into a better shape, a better person. 
I've learnt my lesson, and I really hope that God won't put me in this kind of situation anymore. >_<

Next, 

27th June marked the 1 monthsary of our friendship built.
So we celebrated it by taking tons and tons of photos (someone promised us 1 roti canai though)
Here goes the crazy moments




These are the people that I hang around with almost all the time. They are all 18 years old.
I thank God for all these awesome, wonderful, cute, sometimes-go-banana friends for they have brought a load of joy and laughter into my life, even in times when I'm really really down.
I met all of them (except for Xin Rui) on the first day of our class, during Bi lecture.
Lecturer asked us to form a group and discuss, and I can still recall vividly, some of them were so shy that they didn't even dare to voice out their opinions.
But look at now, all donno come out from which psychiatric hospital. Wahahahahaha!
And this is what we called Fate!

May God blesses them abundantly and hope that our friendship will last. (though I might be here for only 1 year, yeah I'm considering to do my degree in other uni)

About why I wanted to move, there are a few reasons.
First, the rental here is really really really really expensive. >_<!!!
2nd, I don't like the campus here. Cause it doesn't look and feel like a campus, it was originally a factory.
3rd, my course was not offered in the main campus in Kampar, Perak.
So yeah, I'm considering another uni.

Last Friday, we just had our MM test, it's our first uni test.
and I'm telling you, you won't expect anything that you've experienced in your secondary school.
No separation of table or sitting separately, no putting your bags outside.
Just another regular lecture class setting with a more anticipating and intense atmosphere.
We were only given one hour, and I didn't have time to check my answers T_T.

I guess that's all for this update. Gonna start doing my MM tutorials.

Oh ya, I'm going back this Raya!
I'm coming home, I'm coming home, tell the world I'm coming home!!!

Tata =)

大学生活:挑战

该面对的,需要面对,
该解决的,始终需要解决。

我未曾想过会发生这样的事,也不想让它发生。。。。。。却偏偏发生了。

两个性格不同,习惯不同的人住在一起,始终要分开,
继续住下去已经没有任何意义。

我们之间没有话题,只有冷漠,
每一天都不想回家,不想面对冰人,
明明就活生生的在我眼前,可是我们之间却被一个坚固的墙壁堵着,
把两人之间的距离拉得远远的,
浓浓的尴尬氛围每天围绕着这空洞,无生气的小房间。

我不喜欢这样,我喜欢有笑声,充满亲切的和气,偶尔搞一下热闹的气氛。
这道墙,我屡次试图把它打破,可是另一边却努力地把它建起,而且越建越强,越固,越厚。



所以问题根本就不在于睡眠时间不同,而是态度。


我实在是无法这样忍受下去,这已经远远地超出我的忍耐限度。
所以,鼓起了勇气,终于说出口。

错? 两者都有。
错就错在我们之间没有沟通好,没有坦白,遇到问题,不是往肚里吞,就是告知外人。

在我最需要帮助和安慰的时候,没有人能够陪在我身边,老妈只好特地飞过来帮忙解决。

基督叫我们要爱我们的敌人,刚开始,当然有点困难,多次祷告后,终于放下一切。
最后,我们都和好的分开,我也希望她可以尽快找个更好的环境安顿下来,也找到一个和她志同道合的室友。

这几天,多谢有妈妈陪伴在身边,有个依靠,好幸福,好有安全感。
让我好想现在立刻飞回家乡。

前几天,好友的母亲过世,虽然是外人,但心里头还会替她难过。
还是那一句:趁现在珍惜眼前人,不要等到失去了才来后悔。

光阴荏苒,妈妈今天回去了,独立的生活该继续下去,忙碌的生活也正是开始。

大学生活:抒情篇

不知不觉,我来到这陌生地方已经接近3个星期了。
每一次,别人问,你过得好吗?
我的答案:I'm fine here, 就是每天都吃得饱,睡得暖,和一班可爱的朋友上课,三五成群搭巴士,聊八卦和Running Man。

每天都祈祷祈求上帝赐给我力量和勇气面对每一天的挑战。
不到第三个星期,挑战就已经找上门了。

我承认我不擅长处理人际关系,我不想在这里说任何人的坏话。
只想说,两个来自非常不同背景的人,
自然而然有不同思想,不同的人格,不同的习惯。。。
我只想说,要跟一个你完全不了解,不认识的陌生人一起睡觉,吃饭,做功课。。。
两个字:妥协

妥协一阵子了,冲突就慢慢浮现,开始不认同对方的一些习惯。。。
出现了一些问题,坦白了,但却变得更陌生了。。。
我真的不知道要如何去面对,
我也祈求了上帝赐给我智慧来解决两人之间产生的问题。。。
我只希望我们将来能够好好相处。。。
还有一年。。。
是一段漫长的时间。。。

今天牧师约我去喝茶,我从未这么开心过,或许遇见熟悉的人感觉特别兴奋。

傍晚,一个人去吃饭,从未感觉那么郁寂。。。

晚上打给妈咪。。。
聊着聊着,眼泪不听话地泫然而下。。。
好想现在就飞过去躺在妈咪的怀抱里。。。
好想念妈咪的温度,妈咪的 kuih goreng, 妈咪的炒米粉,妈咪的ABC+鱼漂 汤。。。

但是,最终还是告诉自己,妮妮一定要坚强,妮妮不能脆弱,哭够了,继续为明天奋斗,继续努力,时间很快就过得,3个月,只要3个月。。。就可以回家了。

“独在异乡为异客,每逢佳节倍思亲”
终于明白了,体会了其中的含义。

Fighting!

Uni Life: An embarrassing start

Reach PJ on Friday 26/5/13, parents help to prepare everything for me in my room.

1st day of Orientation 20/5/13

After having breakfast with parents, went to bus station to wait for bus without my parents accompanying me. I was so eager and excited to get on the bus that I didn't look at the coming bus' name. I was curious why is everyone not clambering the bus but looking at me. I gave the driver my ticket, he said, no need. Feeling weird, then a male voice from behind said " this is not our bus"

I alighted from the bus, look at the sticker, it says "Universiti Malaya"
I was downright embarrassed that time. Everyone was staring at me.
I felt like want to dig a hole and hide myself in there.
Then, I befriended 2 science stream guy, one of them was the one told me about the wrong bus.



2nd day 21/5/13
We skipped afternoon mass call, because based on our friend's experience, mass call is exactly the same as assembly. Due to no bus scheduled on that time, 5 of us walked home under the flaming hot sun. Good experience.

3rd day 22/5/13
It's Campus Hunt. But none of my friends are going. I ended up taking my parents to KLCC using LRT. Nice experience.
Parents went back at night. Flight delayed. Poor them.

4th day 23/5/13 
Briefing about uni rules and regulations and other course related subject. Was suppose to watch 3 Idiots, but ended up watching New Journey to the west directed by Stephen Chow. Extremely hilarious!



Friday a.k.a Holiday 24/5/13
Went to Mid Valley PC fair to buy a printer, because we were told by the lecturer that we have to print everything out on our own. Took rapidkl to go there. only Rm1.90 per trip.

Saturday 25/5/13
Went to Berjaya Times Square to buy white-collar blouse. The orientation booklet stated that we must wear white-collar tee/blouse for the ID photo-taking. Mana tau, in the end the uni provide it for us -_-!!! Oh ya, the clothes/shoes sold there were damn cheap!!!

Sunday 26/5/13
Jane from FGT Subang Jaya picked me up to join their Sunday Service. Extraordinary experience.

Week 1 of study
Nothing much happen during lecture. No practical and tutorial class. So it's quite relaxing.
Most of the lecturers only explain some intro of the courses.
Met a few classmates. Who are all a year younger than me =(

We have a very strict and yet hilarious English lecturer.
A very strict but experienced MM lecturer. She reminded me of my secondary school chinese teacher. 
A handsome, muscular and very young Sociology lecturer.
A boring and always-murmuring-to-herself Economics lecturer.
A nerdy-looked computing technology male lecturer.

Starting next week, our classes/tutorials/practical officially start.
Week 3 our assignments start.
Week 5 small test start.

So I might be very busy, but I'll try to update asap whenever I have free time.
Ciao.
