Jalan-Jalan Merdeka : Melaka

“Beb, jom p Melaka hjg mggu ni!”

That was what my friend, Lia whatsapp-ed me 3 days before Merdeka’s weekend. Dia ni memang!

Friday evening, I took bus from KL Sentral to KLIA2. Perasan touch down flight gitu!  Hahahah.. Lia fetched me there coz she stays in Banting. So, it will be nearer to head to Melaka.

The next day, 29/8/2015 (Sat), we departed as early as 7.30am. Punya semangat! After breakfast-stop at R&R Seremban, we arrive Melaka at about 10am! My last ‘official’ visit to Melaka was back in 2008! Fuhhh…

We had a gateway to Taman MiniMalaysia and A’Famosa Resort in 2011, and attended a wedding reception at BukitKatil Melaka in 2013 but we didn’t make it to Melaka Town.

So, I’m quite excited to explore Melaka again!


We parked car at Menara Taming Sari area and wandered around. Guess what, the Menara Taming Sari is still not exist back in 2008! 


Nope, we didn’t take the ride of the Menara Taming Sari. We rode trishaw instead! It was my very first trishaw riding ever. It cost us RM25 per ride which cover 3 pit-stops. From Menara Taming Sari, stopped at Taman Merdeka, A’Famosa & Stadthuys.

@ Taman Merdeka

A'Famosa still standing strong since 1511

At Stadthuys, we lepak at the river side, opposite Stadthuys. Had an ice-cream & cendol, just to recharge energy. Hehehe… And proceed walked along the Melaka River. 




Photo session at Pirate Park before headed to Muzium Samudera. The Pirate Park also a new spot. The Muzium Samudera is getting ‘old’ anyway. Entrance fee is RM5 for MyKad holder (adult).

It’s the end of 1st session before we decided to check-in to hotel and refresh ourselves. So, 7 Day Inn it is! The hotel is located adjacent to The Shore. Walking distance bout 10-15mins to the abovementioned tourist attraction places.

Love the room!


2nd session, sesi membakar lemak! LOL.. we walked to Jonker Street. Sempat la ambik gambar di Hard Rock Café. For record, Jonker Street also still not exist back in 2008. Or maybe it was just a normal-kinda pasar malam back then.

@ Jonker Walk


Back to hotel and we drove to Hajjah Mona Asam Pedas, Tmn Kota Laksamana, recommended place to eat. Since parking was a big prob, we have to make another big round and stuck in jammed! I would say it was kinda late dinner.

Zzzzzzz...

Ok.. I better post on our 2nd day asap! It's already staling! Ggrrrrr...

Re-visiting UPM after 12 years!

Wanted to share bout my so-called Merdeka’s getaway, but I’m more excited to rant bout UPM! Hahaha…

Since graduated in year 2002, went to UPM again the following year to attend my cousin’s convocation. Since then, I never visit UPM anymore. Padahal, stay KL saja pun! Makin dekat tempat tu, makin tidak kesampaian. *sigh*

Lepaking with my aunt last Saturday. To my surprise, she wanted to ‘explore’ the routes to UPM. Waaa… punya excited!! It’s been 12 years ok!

WELCOME TO UPM!
Signage towards PALAPES
I can’t describe how I feel as soon as we reached UPM’s compound. I was happy. I was excited. At the same time, sedih & syahdu pun ada. I missed those days. I might be passive most of the time. Yet, I enjoyed & treasure all the friendships and hardship to complete all assignments & tasks. Mixed feelings!

After all these years, the faculty still looks the same.
There were a lot of changes in the campus. However, my faculty – Fakulti Bahasa Moden & Komunikasi remained as it is; except additional of rest area at the end of lecturer’s block. The bilik kuliah is getting old from outside. I can imagine myself, being one of the freshies standing outside the dewan kuliah with naïve-looking-faces. Hahahahah… Those were the days huh?! 


The only bilik kuliah that I miss damn much!
Maybe becoz most of the classes were held at this room back then
Oh my! Those benches are antic! 
I wish we could enter the kolej kediaman & other faculties’ area, but we are not allowed to. Huhuhu..

Some throw back entries :

My Bodyguard
My Matrix Card
My Bed

I feel oooold! Hahaha..

Ryanna 5th Birthday


Oh my… I just realized that I had drafted a 3-in-1 entry which covers Raya, Ryanna’s Birthday & prosthesis earlier. Totally forgotten bout it until I browsed thru My Document in my desktop. Anyway, it is not a big issues actually, but I hate it when I forgot to post anything bout my dearly daughter’s birthday! Should I blame the menopause-syndrome? Haihhhh…

My lil’ chicky girl blowed her 5th candles in 14th July 2015. Ahah! That’s explained the 1-week advance leave for Raya! I’ll definitely don’t wanna miss the cake cutting with my girl. Had ordered 2 cakes for her; for home as well as class celebration.

WW ~ AI

Due to workload, had postponed twice of my hospital appointments. *sigh*

Last Friday, the Oncologist confirmed that the radiotherapy done in June was a success.
In other words, I’ve menopause in the age of 35. 
My hormone tablet changes from Tamoxifen to AI (the short form of the above pic-Letrozole).

May Allah grant me better health & longer life.. Aminn..
