When I grow up, I want to be…


that was my ambition since grade school until I changed my mind during form 5
and from there, either COMPUTER ENGINEERING or COMPUTER SCIENCE was what I had in mind since I got myself into graphic design and web design right after PMR
why I picked computer engineering? for a simple reason; because it’s harder than computer science haha plus I love physics and all those electronic stuffs!

in my 2nd yr undergrad, I realised that electronics are just not my thing
but then, I realised I like programming and totally in love with networking at the top level 😛 – aerial? signals? gimme a break! of course I know bits here and there but it’s not my thing; totally the same as electronics
I can do it but I can’t say I really enjoy it

so what’s my point?
my point is, no matter how much I dislike (or hate) something, I’ll do fine it in – take note, it’s doing fine not doing well
of course this includes you as well; if you like something, you’ll do a great job in it 😉
isn’t that right?

jumping to my main point here…
a lot of things happened and I sort of got a grip of the reality and what really are happening now
I’m trying not to go much into detail as it’s a personal matter
hopefully things will go back as how it used to soon, AMEN

looking at how things are, there are a lot of times how I wished I didn’t pursue engineering even though that is my interest since years ago
I should have just force myself to take medicine and go through with it
or at least, I should have taken medical engineering or the likes of it
at least, I’d know what’s going on and not just stand by the side and leave it to the pro to do their job
I’m not saying it’s an easy path; but engineering itself is not that easy either
with lots of wills and hard work, it should work out somehow

whew! I’m full with regrets even though I know that I shouldn’t
things happened for a reason but… *sigh*
It hurts to see them poking the needles around like no ones business on my beloved person 😦

I could go on and on with my regrets and all the if only thoughts so I’ll stop here

anyway here’s a photo for today
the photo been up in my fb page for a few days or maybe weeks already

Flowerlicious Part I


I was saying in my previous posts that I’d post up the flower photos that I took at Cambridge University Botanical Garden
previous posts; Cambridge University Botanic Garden
and Cambridge University Botanic Garden Part II
tbh, I’m not sure which photo to post first as there are way too much! (not really; but you don’t want to see all 27 photos at once, right? hehe)

if these are not to your liking, feel free to view the other photos at Noradila Photography page 😉

I really am missing taking photos of flowers!
days ago, I went around Alor Setar and was trying to find a place where there’d be a lot of flowers!
too bad I couldn’t find one; even couldn’t find a place when I googled about it
come on Alor Setar! Taman Bunga please!
of course there’s one at Gunung Jerai if I’m not mistaken
but driving up there? errr that is another story haha I don’t have the guts lol 😆

oh well~
here goes some of the photos 😉
I do have lots of my sis photoshoot yet to be posted
and also Lego photoshoot
but all these are already in my fb page hehe

Geranium sinense

p/s: hrmmmmmm~ I feel like going to take some shots of the beach. Kuala Kedah anyone? I’ll see if the weather this afternoon is good, then I might go! 😉 I went there last week I think but it started to rain like crazy the minute my bro and I went out of the car BWAHAHAHAHAHA!! such bad timing! lol

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~
