Random Thoughts Dan Hari Matang

As usual, my busy schedules stopped me from writing any useful stuffs on my blog. I only had the chance to write whenever it's nearly Friday or it is Friday and in the weekends - Thank God It's Friday! Any other days, i'm only able to reply to customer emails, read through bloggers daily feed(s) and checking out the facebook. So many things to do these days yet i don't have ample time to fit all into my routines.

Last weekend has been a wonderful weekend to me. I might say that it was an amazing trip - catching up with friends - made new friends - the 5th time i got to visit Nottingham - 1st time visiting Hull. And i also got the chance to ride a friend's bimmer/BMW (as known by true aficionados - orang ikut trend). Eventho it's not the latest series nor a new one, but it must be such an achievement to him, beli kereta cash 2000 pounds sterling (= RM10k) pakai duit sendiri untuk bawa balik Malaysia. Nanti tak payah susah-susah fikir monthly installment untuk kereta.


Here are some of the pictures taken using my camera during the Nottingham Games.

The team :)



Fooling around in between games.



Macam biasa, muka yours truly kene ada :)



In action, can you spot Alan? :)





As for me (or i must say us?), we are also in the middle of trying to save some cash to buy a car our dream car (at the very moment sebab tak mampu nak rembat X6 ataupun sekelas dengannya). Sementara boleh pakai AP student, tax memang tak mahal untuk bawa balik Malaysia. We might be using the money we have saved from our monthly allowances and from the part-time work to top up the sum. Before that, to whoever is reading this, i must make a point that we are not solely use the pocket money we get to buy our dream car which seems a bit unfair to some people. Reason being, I have other sources of income in addition to the money i did recieved monthly. Truthfully, not that i want to be in control when it comes to money, but i think it's the right time. Kumpul sikit-sikit. Once in a while, i too can't resist the temptations to splurge into something 'trendy' and 'hot'. Ramai kawan-kawan beli iphone, macbook, designer items all but we think saving up some money could not harm us just to be prepared for our 'back for good' plan this coming August.

I would love to share with others on what kind of jobs i've done so far in UK to earn extra pocket money. It was all hard-earned money and i swear it was all not that easy.

I've became a part-time teaching assistant at a Swaythling primary school near my house (3 hours, twice a week - first year only), a tuition helper for a Malay tuition centre here in Southampton (3 hours, Saturday - first year only), sorting letters at the nearest Royal Mail post office centre (just during 3 weeks Christmas break as Christmas cards are sent this time around - 2nd & 3rd year of studies), room checker for lecture halls at University of Southampton (2 weeks only - 3rd year of studies), domestic job at University's Halls of Residence (1-2 months during summer - 1st, 2nd & 3rd year of studies) and more to come for this final year. Plus, not to forget my part-time business selling Tie Rack scarves - visit here :)

Sheeeehhh, macam entry orang matang - dewasa dengan bentangan belanjawan negara (walaupun diri ini harus sedar bulan Januari nanti dah masuk 25 tahun!). Lain kali entry main-main pula..

Choppppp, can you guys guess what car that i'd love to get before i'm back for good? :). Brand and model? Nak ada contest gak ke? Okay, a mystery gift from me to whom with a correct answer!!! :)



p/s: More Nottingham Games picture will be right up bila official photographer dah siap edit gambar :p
