Cambridge Uni, College Formal Dinner


You can refer to this post Harry Potter Dinner for part 1 of the story hehe

A day before my flight back to Malaysia, I managed to sneak in (not really) to one of the formal dinner
the students can bring 2 guests with them; so I was the one my sis brought with 😛

to cut things short; it started with drinks before entering the hall
here’s the waiting hall

and when you’re inside the hall; the person next to you will introduce themselves, chat with you yadda yadda yadda
really is a proper thing

that is such a good experience!
and of course on the table, they put on a complete set of wine glasses and utensils, those kind of proper thing you’d see in old English movies hehe – don’t you wonder which fork to use? which spoon? haha

I sat next to this grandpa uncle named… uhhh sorry I can’t remember lol
but he used to be a doctor for 40 years before retiring 20 years ago – he is pretty old 😉
he introduced himself by giving out his full name and got me caught in his flow and I was giving away my full name too AHAHAHA!
I usually introduce myself as Adila since it gets annoying to repeat my full name every time lol
I even need to repeat my name even when I’m saying it’s Adila – since it’s not an English name 😛

the food!
errrrrr~ it was alright but I’d prefer something else hehe
I think I had vegetable soup as the starter – pretty good tbh; main dish was some vegetable pastry with side dishes of sliced potatoes with gravy and cabbage; and dessert was fruit cocktails
of course that is the vegetarian option 😉

and ended with crackers and cheese (which I was told wine works best with cheese to lower? the cheese taste or something something)
too bad I can’t take any photos inside the hall; so I don’t have any!

funny story; well it’s funny for me
the uncle next to me asked if I’d like to have some cheese as I was looking at him
and I smiled and said, “I’m alright” – which means, no thank you (that is not something weird to say, right?)
then he said, “You mean, ‘NO’?”
I can only LOLed! and that got me thinking if I screwed up my English or something
it felt like he was correcting my English AHAHAHA! 😆
he was telling me the answer is NO not I’m alright
that is not the wrong thing to say, uhhh right? I’m not sure anymore xD heeeeeeee~
It’s not the right phrase to use but it’s not wrong either… I think? haha
kena study English again la!

anyway, here is yours truly with the gown (I don’t need to wear it actually; but I still did :P) and my sister on the right 😉

p/s: if you’re up to it, do try applying for Cambridge University. It’s such a proper place where you feel like everyone is such an elite! (of course only elites can get it, no?) – be one of them by trying to get in 😉
of course I’m going to try as well; I need to write a proposal before I get in touch with any supervisor in mind hehe~
