I went to bed at 10.40pm because I was rather tired. I was sleeping so soundlessly
when I got awaken by the loud fire alarm
. First thing that I thought to myself, "Did I lit up any fire while I was sleeping?
" It was so loud I seriously
thought I was the one who set the fire alarm on. I went out and another flatmate was as blur
as me. We were talking, err, shouting?? cause we can hardly
hear each other. Then, two gals came out from their rooms with their jackets, locked their door and went off (so selamba
). Then I turned and saw Queen Next Road at the door of her flat and then I realized
we're supposed to go down. This is not
Malaysia where I can continue sleeping with the alarm on unless I smell smoke
. I quickly went into my room, grab my keys and locked my door. Just when I locked my door, I realized I left
my jacket. I wanted
to go in and take it but
my keys and the key hole are not "working
" well together cause it will take me around 1 minute
to pull my keys out from the hole. I was like, "arrghh!! Don't care la.
" I went down and saw everyone was downstairs. Once I stepped out of the block, I regretted
not bringing my jacket. It was seriously cold. So cold
. And I was wearing shorts
! I was practically shivering and shaking out there. It was either I burnt myself to death
or I freeze to death
, which I eventually chose freeze to death (because at least I wont turn into charcoal, and still will have complete body parts!
). We were standing outside and I was so hoping that it will end soon but I saw a fire engine. That's it. It will take forever
. I was so cold, but thank God for having such wonderful flatmate, Eric
(the guy who can cook), for borrowing me his jacket. THANKS ERIC
!!! We continued standing and standing and I was thinking to myself, "today moon cake festival also no need to make us stand here and look at the moon kan?
" It was 1.20am
okay? I want to get back to sleep. After 30 minutes
or so, they fireman came out from the building and said, "Flat 22, Room 5, you set you alarm on
" I so want to smack that guy I tell you!!! But, he's way bigger
than me so it's okay lah
!! But, I know who you are. Ish

Greetings from ENFIELD, LONDON.
It's been awhile since I last updated my blog.
Where should I even start from?
Let me introduce to you, my one and only
I'm staying in Robbins Hall, flat 23, room 1
I think it's not too bad considering it's an old building. Although my toilet light is not functioning, my carpet is sticky and has black stains
, the rest are pretty much more than what I expected.
I have 3 flat mates at the moment. All 3 are from the States. 2 gals 1 guy and guess what?? The guy cooks so well
that I must admit, I feel shy to say I can only cook maggi. But he's so nice to offer to cook for me and my other 2 flat mates and we don't
need to pay him. We can help him out if we want. Ain't he sweet? Hehehe
Who said there's nothing free in London ha?
Ming Zi and I are only here for 3 days and we are sick
of the food here. Everyday chicken, meat, chicken, meat, chicken, meat
. The only vege I had was during my first
meal in London (provided by uni).
The FOC food..
The chicken was
meant to be tandoori
chicken (it's nowhere near the bad tasting
tandoori in Malaysia) and the long bean was boiled
, so it was tasteless
and extremely soft
All of the makan shops here are closed
and during dinner, only fast food outlets are open. So, we decided to cook ourselves tonite.
Maggi + porridge + vege = perfect dinner
I desperately need to clean and unpack my things. It's so messy that I can't stand it myself. I don't even have the time to clean cz everyday is so packed with program. When I have the time, like today, now, I'm here blogging. Why??
Cz of me PEMINATS
, don kan cheong. I will surely update wan. Don gaduh gaduh in the c-box for me. Hehehe
Need to unpack my clothes now. Will try to update again later. WILL
try ok? No guarantees :P
