Below are some pictures which were taken yesterday when I took 3 of my housemates who are now doing their first year Medicine in RCSI (Leh, Tiger & Yunus) for a half day trip to Powerscourt Gardens & Glendalough. Well, I have been to those 2 places a couple of times if you guys realize that. Hehehe.

It was actually a last minute planned trip by the way. My ex-classmate & ex-housemate (Rizal) who is now working as an intern in Mater Hospital Dublin was back in Dublin yesterday after spending his 3 weeks holiday (cuti raya) in Malaysia. So, he asked me a favour to rent a car to pick him up from the airport in the morning & then to help him moving his stuffs from my house (his ex-house) to his new house which is close to the hospital where he works. To me, it was not a big deal coz he said he will pay the cost of the car rental. Heheh.

Since Rizal had to work half day on that day from 2-6 pm (pity him coz he had to go to work straight after a dreadful long-haul flight), I came to think that it would be a great idea to take 3 of my current housemates for a half day trip with the car since they happened to have no lectures on that day & I also had no tutorials. 3 of them would absolutely love to go. Actually their original plan was to go to Powerscourt Gardens by bus. But since I got a car, I offered to drive them there plus Glendalough. I myself also need some vacations to release my tensions & worries about the upcoming exam.

So, after driving Rizal to his workplace, I drove back home to pick up Leh, Tiger & Yunus. Then, we headed straight off to Powerscourt Gardens & Glendalough afterwards. It was the first time those 3 people ever be outside Dublin city to experience the amazingly beautiful Ireland’s countryside. They can’t stop taking pictures every angle of the places & they also didn’t stop complaining about the cold freezing weather conditions which is typical during autumn months outside the big cities in Ireland. I tell you, their reactions were exactly the same as mine 6 years ago. Hahaha. I miss the old me. :P The scenery within the Powerscourt Gardens & in Glendalough were so breathtaking. Autumn panorama in those two places appears to be more stunning compared to the last time I was there during the summer months. The colour change in leaves that takes place in autumn makes those 2 places look magical.

It was a fun trip indeed although an unexpected horrifying event occurred which was when the car that I rented can’t be started while we were about to leave for home from Glendalough. It was already dark by the way. Four of us were totally panicked especially me coz I was the one who carried the big responsibility. Thanks to God, after a few minutes struggling & panicking, we finally managed to figure out what was wrong eventually. Apparently, it had something to do with the steering wheel. Thanks to Tiger who was the one who figured that out. If it was not because of him, we certainly have to spend the night in the car in Glendalough waiting for a mechanic to come the next day. Huhuhu.

OK. My final exam will be starting on this Tuesday (21 Oct) and insyaAllah it will end on 27 Nov. Of course I’m scared to death just to think about it. I have to put myself into a deep meditation at this instant. So, I might have to keep myself away from the cyberworld for a couple of weeks starting today. InsyaAllah, I will definitely start writing again the second after the last paper is done. :)

sbenornye, datuk dari pahang dan melaka ni antara paling senang dapat.
kalu kenal kaki, boleh beli.
ramai ahli perniagaan beli gelaran datuk dari 2 negeri ni.
dah lupe brape, maybe rm30k atau rm9k, tak ingat.
datuk terengganu nasib baik masih bernilai.
Alhamdulillah Tuanku Sultan kami bijaksana.
baru sorang habuk pon xdpt datuk.
ade lah cerita belakang kata Tuanku Mizan murka orang persenda bila puteranya mewakili baginda untuk bagi bintang ni.

Satu fakta menarik pasal datuk terengganu.
bini datuk negeri ini dipanggil tok puan atau to' puan aku x reti eja.

aku x puas ati orang kate siti promosi malaysia.
lecturer omputeh aku x knal pon dia.
brape ramai sangat orang yang dia tolong kalu nk kate dia dapat datuk sbb sumbangan pada orang?
mcm sir alex ferguson tu lain laa.
siap bantu unicef lagi. huhuhu.

tolong lah limitkan gelaran datuk..
biarlah gelaran ni berharga semula!
