Show Me Ur Style!

Assalamualaikum and good day, peeps! :)

Haha okay hari tu kata nak tulis pasal sinopsis novel dalam cabaran c50 kan. Tapi belum buat kerana masih malas nak imbas balik tentang plot novel tu.

So today it's not about a book. It's about me participating in a contest in facebook. Hahah.

It's a 'style' contest, in which participants shall upload a picture of them, in what they think as their most awesomest style, and then the picture with the most 'likes' will win. In order for people to like the picture, they must first like the profile page of the shop.

This kind of contest is quite common among new shops in facebook. By organizing such contest, a shop will gain publicity in a jiff because their shop name will be published everywhere for every 'likes' they get, not to mention quite a number of members too, because people who entered the contest will have to want their friends and families to like the page in order to make them vote.

So umm......

I hereby would like to promote my picture! I'm doing this just for fun, and also for the prizes! ;p

This contest is organised by a women's apparel shop.
For ladies, you can add up some great fashion choices to your shopping list by liking the page.
For guys who would also like to vote, no worries. You can also like the page, see wether you like my style, and vote for me! Yet you may not want to shop in a women's clothing shop, right? So what you can do is, you can always unlike the page after the contest is over. ;) Simple, right? So here is how you can vote for me:

Visit this facebook page: M2M Collection (click here)
Like the M2M Collection page first.
In the page's photos there's an album named "Show Me Ur Style Contest".
In the album, you may find my picture with the name Iliana Sulaiman.
If i'm not mistaken my pic is in the 3rd line in the album.
I'm contestant No.10.


Okay so that's it. Vote me y'all. Thank you! :)

.C50 and Zapin.

Assalamualaikum and good day, peeps. :)

Hari ini permulaan hari yang tak berapa baik. Nak buka buku ilmiah tu macam agak mencabar sedikit. So tadi saya ambil peluang dengan minda yang tak keruan ni mentelaah buku lain.

Saya habiskan buku yang saya start baca kat dewan kuliah, like mentioned in the earlier post, Madeline Wickham's The Wedding Girl. Finished the whole book, and started a little bit on Sheila O'Flanagan's The Perfect Man. Tapi buku kedua tu baru baca sedikit, sebab tak lama lepas tu ada dapat hidayah sedikit untuk ulangkaji nota-nota Otorhinolaryngology (sounds sexy, isn't it?) yang tak habis-habis ni. Tapi tak lama kemudian surfing balik.

As i was blogsurfing, i came across 'Cabaran 50 novel setahun'. Thanks to Ain Sabrina, tuan punya Muslimah's Hour. She's been in this for i don't know how long. Since i have just finished a book, i thought i might join a lovely society of readers and take the challenge. Why not? Right? It's time to pick up a positive habit that i left behind for quite a time already. Reading books.

So may next post shall be about the synopsis of the book. For those who don't favour reading novels, i suggest you to skip the upcoming entry. If you love reading, or a fellow who's intending to take up reading as hobby, it's an honour to share my fiction digs with you all. :)

Okay. So,

Beberapa hari lepas after lunch, sambil menunggu proses peristalsis berlaku dengan jaya, saya berbual-bual dengan kawan baik saya Suzana. Ada beritahu Sue yang saya amat berminat dengan tarian dan bercadang untuk masuk kelas tarian kontemporari sewaktu cuti semester nanti. Mungkin juga angan-angan semata. Tapi memang betullah, saya minat.

So semalam, dia ajak saya pergi satu kelas tarian zapin kat pusat Mahasiswa USMKK. Menarik. Zapin is one of the traditional dances that interests me the most. The rhythm and the moves are just awesome, fast and artsy. Esok kelas tu. Pukul 9 pagi. Kalau sesiapa yang berminat dengan tarian zapin boleh la join. 9 pagi. Kalau tiada aral melintang, saya berkemungkinan besar masuk kelas tu esok. Tapi sekarang pukul 2 pagi pun belum tidur, so mungkin ada aral besar melintang jalan. But we'll see. Eheh.

ah. these mood swings.

i've been thinking too much lately. yes, that must be it. been thinking too much.

about unimportant things. emotional things.

emotion needs care, but not excessively, or it shall become an obsession.
once it is, it may be hard to come out from.

thus i should be thinking about something more appropriate, like my upcoming exam, which need quality studying.

okay. let's.

.love diaries.

Assalamualaikum and good day. :)

Today i kick-start my day with a cuppa coffee and various plans on the things that i need to do during office hours. Simply because all of them involve people that works in the office. Such as;

My CFCS patient card that needs signature (To be submitted to the sister in the KKKK office. However, to submit it, i must first fill in my patient's family members' names and IC numbers. This can be done by calling my patient and asking him all the info),

My dental appointment (To be set with the nurse in the Klinik Pakar Gigi HUSM, according to Dr. Abdullah),

My car sticker form (To be submitted to the USMKK HEP dept. To be able to do this, i must have the photocopied car insurance sheet and grant that my father has with him. Shouldn't be a problem, since baba work near my campus and i can pick them up from him during lunch hour.)

Send out presents to my friends via pos laju (To be posted at the mini post office in campus).

Since IDA (the InterDisciplinary Activities, mainly lectures) starts early in the morning, i planned to get done with the things i mentioned during inter-lectures break and some in the afternoon.

As usual, my IDA session are filled with either
me, intensely absorbed into the lecture topic and jotting down (very rare situation)
me, reading fiction (not uncommon), or
me, talking in 20-25 desible intensity of voice with friends, a.k.a borak kosong (common), or
me, sleeping (surprisingly common. eheh).

So at 8.30am sharp, (i was on time), i started reading Madeline Wickham's The Wedding Girl. At 8.55am, there was an announcement, morning lecture was canceled. Chance to call my cfcs patient and straight to the KKKK Dept, yet i was still reading. Until 9.30am, i got to chapter 8 and stopped since Prof Nik Zainal, our phase coordinator, came in, warning us on the bad IDA attendance. He was saying all sorts of things like, we must always come to the session, 100% attendance expected this week onwards, and do not sign for your friends because apparently the academic office have some kind of forensic officer that can detect the fake signature, even the slightest bent.

Now i don't have the authority to say that it's not true, but saying out those things may not really be effective. I mean, it may be, if the implementation was carried out word by word. Me as the IDA 'runner', have been warned by the academic office the same thing since day 1. However, a different news was circulating, that seniors said IDA consist of no importance when it comes to our academic assessment. They themselves have been 'playing truant?' and faced no consequences. NO action at all. So why bother? In the end, the attendance are just based on some student's eagerness to learn and willingness to wake up in the early morning and fill in their attendance, not out of worry that they are going to be taken disciplinary action upon. So yeah, after the 'warning', most students were just, 'yeah whatever' or giggle cynically. Aih.. I just hope that if the academic office say so, they do so, so that it won't be an insult to the ones who really came every IDA morning. (sadly, not me. aih..i have also been absent a few times). Some lecturers confessed their curiosity to us wether we find the IDA helpful? Although with that much absentee i don't dare to say that it's not, since there are quite a number of 'enjoyable' lectures that give us info out of our usual academic scope, like the medico-legal lectures, disasters and forensic (when else are we going to have a 'disaster' lecture if not during IDA? and yes, 'Natural Disaster' was a lecture title). So the IDA remains, and absentee remains in their room. May Prof. Nik Zainal's words may alter the numbers.

Second lecture's break - i ended up playing Fruit Ninja on Faiz's iPod until the battery depleted. So the inter-lectures break were non-productive for me.

Done with the lectures, Ruby, Sue and I went for our gastroround. As usual, girls + lunch break + no evening class + air conditioned cafe = talk and talk and talk. Feeling full, I went back to my room, determined to call baba and get the car insurance thing, also to call my patient and submit the CFCS card today, when i saw my friends' unwrapped present (ah, forgot to wrap em and post em!).
The present i got them are somewhat a love diary. Although the diaries are already very pretty, i decided to add something to make them more special since i'm giving them to my best friends. I just add some quick notes to a few dates.

Just a simple hello.



a reminder of my buffday is a must. hehe

So these are what i've been doing till it's 15 minutes past 5 and along with it destroyed all hope to run errands concerning the mentioned offices above. Hope you guys like it when it reach your doorstep, sunshine(s). ;)

p/s: about the dental appointment, i totally forgot all about it. uhu.

.kamon kamon.

Assalamualaikum & good day, peeps. :)

I just wanted to ramble a short piece today,

telling you that,

'If only..' is simply not applicable to me anymore.

Everything i need is already within my reach right now.

Sounds so grand, isn't it? Chett..

But it's only very true.

All i have to do now is just want something, and straight to working my ass off for it.

Now that sounds more like it. Heh.

.Age Is Just a Numbah.

Or so they say.

Let me tell you why I fear getting above 20.

Being 19, I think I'm allowed to get confused. I can always try, and mistakes are to be expected. Being 20, I just feel that we should already know things. It's like, someone telling me, "o just pick one already". I'm not allowed to stop at a junction, stare at the crossroads sign and contemplate, for there are just so much more to get through further ahead.

At 23, whenever I have some unsettled things inside my head, it's the same voice telling me constantly, making me more and more nervous, urging me to choose and NOT make mistake. It's like you're a pilot of Boeing747, and if you push the wrong button, all 359 passengers are going down.

Responsibility is such a big word. I believe it's true for most people. For a rather clueless girl like me, making choices is still a huge panic trigger. I once sweat, literally, when deciding wether i wanted to eat lunch at cafe or in my room. The same thing happened when i tried to decide wether i should allow my brother to go out with his friends when my parents left me in charge. I was already 22 at that time. But of course this doesn't happen all the time. I still manage to get most of my routine done without all the troublesome decision. Yet it still bothers me to grow up and have to make choices. Coz i'd still like mama to choose the suitable fabric for my Hari Raya apparels. Still wants my mama to tell me how many pots of rice to cook for a 5-people dine or 16 people dine...etc.

But I can't rely on others forever, can i? Sooner or later people may refer to me for advice or instructions like that. The stressful thing is, i don't know when or why my mind was set that 'training' time is over once 20 years old. Pass that, it's time to bring it to the table, act adult-like, and just do. I mean, aren't failures are to be applauded for you can learn from it? *sigh*

However instead of pitying my gerascophobic self, i might as well fight the panicking urge to make perfect decisions at the back of my head and grow old and wise, right? Keep moving forward, baby. :)

Have a great holiday, peeps. While there's still time. Eheh.
