For the First Time..

Such a long time ago,
I had given up on finding this emotion,
Ever again.
But you're here with me now,
Yes I found you somehow,
And I've never been so sure.

For the first time, I am looking in your eyes,
For the first time, I'm seeing who you are,
Can't believe how much I see,
When you're looking back at me.
Now I understand what love is...
Love is...
For the first time.

I have mixed feelings now.. I don't want time to fly too fast. I hv too many tasks in hand, I felt that i hv no more time.. Yet at the same time, I want the moment I want to be in front if me in a blink of an eye. Without needing to past the finishing-the-task time frame.

Is that possible at all?? I don't think so.. Coz if it's possible, I won't be here now. I'll be with him, ne?..

Bimbang trend kahwin lewat

KUALA LUMPUR 26 Mei - Kerajaan bimbang terhadap trend lewat berkahwin di kalangan wanita dan lelaki yang dikhuatiri memberi implikasi jangka panjang kepada negara.

Menteri Pembangunan Wanita, Keluarga dan Masyarakat, Datuk Seri Shahrizat Abdul Jalil berkata, jika trend itu berlaku berterusan, impaknya kepada negara ialah tempoh kesuburan wanita menjadi pendek dan kesukaran mendapat anak.

Menurutnya, perkahwinan tidak lagi menjadi keutamaan kepada wanita dan lelaki sebaliknya sanggup melewatkannya kerana terlalu mengejar kerjaya, melanjutkan pelajaran dan enggan terikat dengan institusi perkahwinan.

''Umur minimum perkahwinan pertama untuk lelaki meningkat daripada 28.6 tahun pada tahun 2000 kepada 28.9 tahun pada masa kini.

''Begitu juga dengan usia minimum perkahwinan wanita yang meningkat daripada 27.8 tahun pada tahun 2000 kepada 28.6 tahun masa kini,'' katanya.


melanjutkn pelajaraan--> btul ah tu.. by the time i graduate, I'll be 28.. but i don't think it's a good idea to juggle up work and family at the same time.. now hubby may be ok, but u can't simply let ur kids go loose kan? but then, bknnyer sengaje pn kn??

the place i wanna be with..

there is definitely a lot of places where people go to calm themselves.. anywhere for me would best be near the water.. so far, the most relaxing place i've been was Sg.Sedim, 10am on friday morning.. although i went with my h'mates, i managed to get some quiet time alone when they went to ladies before dipping in.

i miss the tranquality of that place.
i was easily lost listening to the water flowing.. pure nature i would say.
maybe i just need to reflect on my life more often.. before that, i need to find the place here..

Updates fella'...

I have changed my tic going back to 21st June instead of 26th. Yeeaayyyyy!! Sooo happy for this! This means I only have 6 weeks to go before going back :D

But of course before that, I'll have my projects, presentations and exams.. Apart from those, can't believe that I'm almost finishing up a semester already...

somebody asked..

What does it feel like to be away most of the time from home?" and I replied, "Content yet sometimes distressing"

I ‘stepped out’ from home when I was 14 to stay in my middle school dorm in Terengganu cause the family had to move to Kelantan. I then went on board to a Science College for high school. Upon graduating, unlike other people who have 3 months of free time, I only stayed home for a month before enrolling to my Preparatory Program to US. My walk down the road brought me further from home when I went to US for my degree and later worked in another state after I’ve kissed my diploma. Now I’m away again… I’ve never been home, really.

Content mainly because I have the full freedom to do whatever I want. I’m used to be out of sight from my family members or others who like to scrutinize and report on all my behavior (no, I didn’t misbehave, not that much at least). Being away does mean that I have to do everything on my own. This is not a big deal since I’m used to chores even while I was at home. Of course except everything is done by your own effort. No washing machine and no other people cooking for you.

Here’s the catch. Being away means you can’t create this ‘close bond’ with your family member. Yes, you call every week. Yes, you text. Yes, you do go home. But it will never be the same as being there everyday and you drift away. I could never get that intimacy again regardless of how I try; the gap will always be there. I do try to be close but for reason I don’t think I’m neither doing it right nor enough.

I’ve grown to be a very independent person. Too much, I think. A person who like to think and decide everything on her own. I will not share all no matter how close you are to me. You will only see the surface of this person called Nur Liyana. This person who can do anything, who is always cheerful and happy. In fact, there is only 1 person in the world who I think knows me inside out better. At least this person knows exactly what I think and feel… (The male me is it?)

This is pretty much it. Now don’t take this the same for everybody. What I’m saying is for me and me alone...


Here is my final exam schedule..

Friday ( 12/06) - PHTN4661: Optical Circuit and Fibers
Saturday (13/06) - GSOE9712: Engineering Statistics
Friday (19/06) - GSOE9210: Engineering Decisions

but before that, i too have a big exam on 27/05 for Digital Signal Processing..

So basically I'll be free after the 20th but I have to stay around for a week before my transit flight to Malaysia.. what to do.. what to do...

On a side note, there is about a month before the finals commence.. scary yet happy coz the thought of meeting him after all the suffering makes it worth it.

thank you

I've never been a big fan of Desperate Housewives. However, flipping through channel, i thought why not. There ain't anything else nice on tv.. Today's episode was on Eli Scrubbs. Wisteria Lane's handy-man. The episode showed how Eli's change each main character in the series. It makes me wonder of the people that has changed and is changing my life.

Regardless it's a positive change or negative change, I thank u all for being part of my life. Thank u for helping in creating who I am today. Thank u for making my life journey full of memories. Thank u for simply stepping and say Hi.

I definitely have nothing to regret. I still have a very long road to go. Thank u, especially to my dear for knocking on my heart and for being with me..

Sesungguhnya wanita dijadikan daripada rusuk kiri lelaki.
Dia bukan dicipta dari kepala untuk menjadi ketuanya,
juga bukan dari tapak kaki untuk dipijak-pijak.....
Dia dicipta dari sebelah rusuk kiri lelaki supaya dia hampir kepada kamu (lelaki),
dari bawah lengan untuk mempertahankannya,
dekat dengan hati untuk disayangi.

Woman was made from the rib of man,
She was not created from his head to top him,
Nor from his feet to be stepped upon,
She was made from his side to be close to him,
From beneath his arm to be protected by him,
Near his heart to be loved by him..

Mid-way done for Semester 1..

8 weeks to go and counting.. but before that, I still hv.....
2 Midterm Exams
3 Projects
1 Presentation
3 Final Exams..

hohohooo~ Stress nyer jd student ni..
Wak.. cmner??

a glimpse of how my study table look like (when i'm studying)... hehee

Counting the Days..

I have another exam next week. So pardon me for the not-so-informative update.. Monday will mark the beginning of Week 8 of Semester.. Why the heck is Week 15 so far away?? Can't wait for it to end so that I can go back to the one 1 person I miss the most..

How've you been
It's just the usual here
And days are feeling like years
And every day's without you

Now I cry
Just a little too much
When I think of your touch
And everything about you

I feel cold
I'm in the dark
When our souls are apart

I wanna travel through time
See your surprise
Hold you so tight
I'm counting down the days tonight
I just wanna be a million miles away from here

I wanna come home to u..
