I was very speechless when I got to know that I had lost all my 3 years worth of pictures since 2009 when I was studying abroad and all those euro trips' ones were gone. I was beyond words, few days back. Almost all the data had lost. It was a stupid mistake not to do any single back up at all before this. But I feel glad that one of the albums that I managed to retrieve was this one. The day my sister left to Alexandria after the widespread protests against Mubarak's regime had subsided. Love them :)
September 16th, 2011. The day I finished my 3 months probation. Now, I'm officially a permanent staff of an audit firm. The name shall not be disclosed here. And 3 months later, I found out how miserable my life is, as an auditor. Despite my experience in internship last year in auditing, I'm still up for this job position that requires high patience and tolerance. And I am still having problem to settle down. The professional minded people, advised me, "this is the best career to start with". "Don't worry, suffer now, enjoy later". "In 10 years' time, you will be in the top managerial position, a director or a partner. You can have everything you want in life". Frankly speaking, I don't even care about how much I will earn in the future, or how big my position is. I don't care about what car I will be driving (actually I want a Volkswagen Beetle 21st Century or 2001 Merc SLK) or the house I will stay in. All I want is a job satisfaction, to do something that I enjoy or comfortable with. Something that in the future, when I ponder upon my past, I did not regret the path that I had chosen. The problem now is because I have difficulty in managing my stress level, and oh my god, the heavy burden work loads. Otherwise, practically everything seems normal. On the weekend, the only thing that I'm looking forward is for my social life, my free time & my own space. Now, I realised, less time I spend with my friends and I only see my family at night, which is quite sad though when I come home to see everybody has fallen asleep. So yeah, my advice to you guys out there reading this, enjoy your student life as much as you can and never feel regret of what you are doing.
I was walking down the road from the place where I parked my car. New car, I thought where I have at least achieved something. But in substance, the car belongs to the bank, not mine. I owe the bank through a hire purchase agreement. That is called substance over form, I learned in my university life during my sophomore year. As I made my way to my client's place, I was clutching my laptop's bag on one's hand. This laptop also doesn't belong to me. My employer lend it for me to do my professional work. If I lose it, I will be dead the next day. Even the laptop has been depreciated over the remaining useful lives, I would still have to pay the full amount regardless of the age. Pathetic isn't it? What is the most important is the crucial data that is stored inside. Basically, what we have right now is only temporary and we might not have it the next day. It's like a loan from Allah s.w.t. Always be grateful for what we have. Never compare ourselves to the richer people because we will never be satisfied. Instead, compare ourselves to the poor ones and always help them.
First and foremost, Alhamdulillah, I'm officially done with my research and analysis project for BSc (Hons) in Applied Accounting from Oxford Brookes University in affiliation with ACCA. Finally after five months of hard work, I can finally breath, a heavy burden has been lifted from my shoulder. I feel so relieved now and can concentrate on my final paper which is P7. Thank you Miss Joyce Low for being a good mentor to me, who have guide me in doing this project and not to forget to both of my parents especially to my mum who had never give up in giving me motivation and encouragement to finish up what I have started. Thank you very much :) Now, I just pray hard hopefully I'll get a very good result for my research project. Amin.

Today is my 8th day in London. The weather is rather cold and very windy. Currently at Ainee's place in Bayswater with my friends Anand and Helmi. It is very comfortable inside here, very warm. They are currently watching tv while i'm typing these. Havent been managed to really settle down for the past one week. My family has just left last sunday and it was very interesting to be with them. Apparently, my sister Aisha was unable to join us as she was in Egypt but now she is savely back at home.
I was in Europe for seven months last year between 25th December 2009 until 29th June 2010. It has been a really good experience and frankly speaking it was the best moment in my whole life. Alhamdulillah, so many places that I managed to visit with my friends eventhough I was there for only a short period.
I went to Hanis Zalikha's page and I saw a map of Europe. It was coincident that the map she edited was within the same curtilage as the countries that I visited last year. Insyaallah if time and money pemit, Italy, Switzerland and Belgium will be my next destinations.
I was browsing through my old photos then I stumbled upon this. Last time I met her was on the 4th April 2007, almost 4 years ago. She was very friendly, elegant and easy to talk to, something I find inside her that is different from other celebrities. Happy 32nd birthday Siti Nurhaliza, may Allah bless you always
