#MYTRAVELOKAESCAPADE : LONDON, UK
21 December 2016 with (3) loves
If you have read my previous post, I have mentioned that the place I want to visit besides Makkah is the UK. If Traveloka approves my leave, I will spend my holiday at London because it has been my childhood dream since I can remember. I don’t know why but London totally caught my eyes the first time I saw the city from the internet/television. Honestly, I can talk on and on about what I want to do in London. It’s one of the famous cities in the world and it also hold a special place in my heart!
Ever since I was a child I have been dreaming to further my studies in London. Even my best friend has the same goal as mine. (I hope I can achieve my ambition to further my studies there or just breath some London air hehe)
Things I’d do in London;
TRAVELLING BY THE BIG RED BUS 🚌
I mean who doesn’t want to experience touching and riding the big red bus? If people mention London, I always have my mind on this particular bus. It looks so classic and cute! For someone who doesn't like to travel by bus, this big red bus just managed to catch my attention. hahaha. Did your remember in one of Harry Potter movies there was a scene where Harry almost got hit by Knight Bus and (thank god he's not) then he went and ride the bus instead? Despite the HUGE different, maybe it was a love at first sight for me 😶
GO THROUGH WARNER BROS: STUDIO TOUR LONDON 🚶
After travelling by bus, I have to get my mind on a destination and this is probably going to be my first destination. Even if I get to touch the building, I'll still consider my one of a billion dreams has come true 😍 From the time when there was an article about this building being build, I already have my mind and heart set on this particular place. I have been growing up with Harry Potter as it is one of my all time favourite movies and books series and I can't manage to miss seeing this building and go through this studio by myself!
THE FAMOUS MADAME TUSSAUDS LONDON
As we all know at Madame Tussauds, we can face-to-face with all the world's most famous faces! Even though all of them are made of wax (and it looks really real!), it still can't shake off the feeling of in the presence of all important people. Things like this always wake up my inner model spirit. Who won't right when you get to strike a pose with Her Majesty the Queen and One Direction? Even though that is so far from reality, a girl can only dream 😂
VISIT ALL THE MUSEUMS AND GALLERIES
Honestly, I'm one who appreciate the beauty of art and history (although I despise the subject when I was in school). It never ceases to amaze me how some things or tragedies can be so meaningful and beautiful to me.
Some of the museums that I need to experience myself are; British Museum (which is famous for the works of man from prehistoric to modern times from around the world), Natural History Museum (which is very famous of their dinosaurs and all types of animal’s exhibition – please believe me when I say I really want to see dinosaur’s bones up close), Science Museum (pretty self-explanatory – the most visited technology museum in the world).
And of course, all those art galleries that enough to wake my inner artist (lol)
THE BIG BEN 🕐
Oh my God, you just can’t imagine how I much I really need to take a picture with it. I mean, I have seen enough pictures from Instagram and other blogs of people taking picture with the Big Ben to make me jealous! As people always saying, kalau tak pergi tu memang tak cukup syarat. I know it just tower with a clock that always go bang bang bang every hour, but it’s okay anything for touching the building – and of course listen to the chime by myself for my own satisfaction.
- - - - -
All of these I mentioned just the big part of my travelling dream. As I told you earlier, I can talk on and on about this as there are so many more I want to do in London such as explore the parks and outdoor, the street arts, the city farms and so much more! I know I said 'touching' a lot because I need to feel it and proof that it's real! If there is one thing that caught my attention is the architecture. I believe the one who design all those buildings are gifted! I mean, can you see how classic those buildings are? Those things are sooo worth drooling over 😁
To all those people from Traveloka, I want to thank you for this contest to win a FREE trip to my dream destination which is London, UK. It is such a huuuge honor for me to join this contest and if I get to pick as the winner, I won't hesitate to pack my bag and go travel for #MyTravelokaEscapade ~
Until I write again.

Rant: life motivation (?)
2 December 2016 with (7) loves
First of all ai nak cakap sorry because I didn't update anything ever since masuk sem kedua ni.
And it's already December! Can you believe it? Cepat betul masa berlalu, huhu. Lagi sebulan je nak tinggalkan 2016. So far 2016 have given me lots of experiences as university student and as a human being. Right now I just want to keep my mind set on being a dean list student and be a better human.
I was doing my ferrous metal assignment when suddenly I feel like updating my blog. Can you believe that not once in my life I ever think of writing an assignment about metal or explaining mechanisn of blast furnace? Sometimes it feels surreal to me, because when I was a kid I want to be someone else - learn different thing than I am now.
Some of my ambitions were being a scientist, then a writer, then a pharmacist. I chose to be those people because every time I think of the word "engineering" is that the job is for guys only. Yes, that's how narrow minded I was.
But right now, alhamdulillah I can find the joy of learning new things (and having love-hate relationship with all these subjects) - although it's majority about iron, steel etc. things I never want to know about. I just want to learn more and perfect my skills to be a great engineer / metallurgist. Although I'm still a first year diploma, what's wrong with dream high? Maybe that dream can be a reality someday.
So for those girls out there who's still in school, never hesitate to challenge yourself to learn new things - even though people keep saying the course is for 'male' or whatever. You do what you want, because no matter what you choose patience, hardwork and determination are the keys to success.

Sorry I never intended for this post to be a motivation speech or whatever. I just don't know what to update about and suddenly all these ideas come flowing from my mind and I can't seem to make my fingers to stop typing. But I'm going to stop here because I need to finish my assignment. Okay, bye.
Don't forget to head to HERMO because they're having Christmas Sale and it's gonna be super lit! They also have spin & win up to RM50 voucher, so don't miss that up.
