Look who is back with a really random post

I haven’t been blogging for few days (ok make that for a month!!) but here I am now! I’m back! 🙂 I’m not going to write a long account in paragraphs of what has been going on so far, instead, I’m just going to dump few random things in this post that would hopefully give you some idea. So here we go…

Random Quotes

Random Lessons we learned

Shopping is fun…..until you multiply the amount by three. 20 pounds kau blanja? Duit brunei brapa tu? Hehe

Making lots of friends is nice….until they nominate you for Society president and you don’t know shit!

– Taking a hot shower is great….until you step outside and remember that it’s below 10 degrees. Baik tah ku mcm urang putih inda mandi

– Asian night sounds fun….until you find out that it should’ve been called “South Asian” night.

– Going to a halal restaurant is a relief…..until you find out they also serve Bacon burger….ok that’s fine, the chicken is halal….until you find out that they cook in the same kitchen and stuff…tapi iya ckp halal kalau d tanya so…..di halal uleh ya, iya tanggung dusa

Walking around campus at night can be boring…..until you meet some drunk ass white dude making a fool of themselves…just the right entertainment we need.

– Staring at hot girls is ok….until you almost accidentally hit a pole Sapa kan tegantuk tiang tu ah?! *coughsiSafcough*

Buying stuff and cooking together is a good idea….until you find out only two know how to cook and the rest were hopeless

– It’s really easy to make fun of vegetarians…until you find out that she also has a black belt in karate

– Going to the library is a good idea….until you find out how big the library is and you don’t know where to start

Baju lawa2….harganya LAGI TAH lawa2 Haha

  1. Must be my lucky day 🙂

    Eh awu banar, urg brunei ani selalu memandai assume another bruneian. I was in Chester and ada urg bising2 behind me and bila ku pusing, durang mcm iski “KAKA URG BRUNAI KAH?” (yes they were that loud and excited..and damn the kaka part! haha)..Bila ku tanya drg ckp pasal tudung kaka bedesign2!

    ai siuk, byk urg brunei. sini 3 saja..atu pun pyh jumpa pasal durang lain faculty. rindu ku ckp brunai

    Oh and i totally still say iatah bah a lot. recent one being when my lecturer agreed with my criticism during a presentation. Diangguknya jua kepala. Eh ko turun London seriatu?

  2. Haha…here at Kent there are….let me estimate….9 first year undergraduates living on campus; 12-15ish second/third years; about 5-6ish postgrads; 8 UBDians twinning program; few in Canterbury but not in Uni; one Bruneian family…..and some several ‘lonewolves’ that I don’t meet frequently.

    so yeah, that’s a lot. I didn’t go to London ariatu. It was the one in Dorchester right? I only knew two who went there….datang makan ganya pas tu balik…..probably malas liat acara2 lain. I think on that day I had raya in Canterbury..open house at one of the seniors. Did you go to London?

    I checked the Uni International page, there are currently 63 Bruneian students here. And I thought I’ve met all of them 🙄

  3. Aiii..I hate you already, bektah kamu buat kampung brunei di sana..hehe.. Kami sini yg 3 urg atu, 1 is an in-service undergrad, so she has her family here, and out of us 2 postgrads, I’m the only one living on campus, the other 1 is living with the undegrad. So it gets a bit lonely at times. Siuk kalau ramai Bruneians eh, you don’t miss home that much and travelling is fun kalau ramai2.

    I didn’t go to London. I think I went to Chester tu the whole day and when I got home, there was a Raya event by the Malaysian society. Maybe when HM comes..? 🙂
