Fun fun fun at Tungku Beach!

OH MY GOODNESS! I had so much fun at Tungku Beach with the amigos today! Harith Waie and Omar brought chickens and Ajin brought lambs! I knew it was going to be a great barbecue! I could tell from the number of people present and the sunny weather!

The first ones to arrive.

Unfortunately, it slowly started to get dark and drizzle. I thought we were going to cancel the barbecue, but not even one of the guys complained! It suddenly rained just a few minutes after they set up the barbecue grill.

Despite the rainy weather, we still waited patiently for the weather to settle down to make the barbecue happen. Everyone kept themselves busy. Oh! Ajin and Ruzaini brought their girlfriends along to join in the fun. When it started to rain heavily, all of us weren't sheltered except for them! They took shelter in Afiq's car. I hope they were comfortable! But no worries! At least they didn't get wet! There were thunders. It was scary. I was scared, but we still bravely played football under the downpour. It's not like I was expecting something really bad to happen to us. I wasn't expecting it to rain either, but I was wrong. There were even foreign surfers surfing in the strong waves! It looked like fun! Would like to try it out someday! But compared to other countries, I bet the waves are MUCH BETTER AND MORE FUN than Brunei's! Just saying.

Just after an hour, the rain stopped and they got started and heated up the charcoals! Ashif, I think God answered our prayers! I hope everybody had their chances to eat the barbecued lambs and chickens. Some time in midday, we were wondering where Ashif and Yusree went. Guess where they were? They rented ATVs. Soon, the others also had the urge to rent the ATVs! Lucky for me, I had my chance to roam around the beach! All thanks to Harith for giving me the chance and Omar for paying!

Nevertheless, it has been a great day! Very well spent! Looking forward to another event like this next month again! Thanks for reading!

Happy birthday, Amal!

Happy 18th Birthday to Amalina Isa!
Officially 18 and legal! Can't wait to get your driving license, can you? You will! SOON! I hope you have a memorable birthday with the people you love! May Allah bless you always! Remember: HAVE LOTS OF FUN!! Don't get too stressed out easily. Life's too short to be down and out. ^-^


Kirah gave me a website where when you move your cursor around, you copy faces of Adam of Owl City! It's pretty neat-o, if I do say so myself! I thought Kirah gave me a broken link because there was a blank screen! When I moved the cursor, it started to copy faces of Adam! I decided to move around randomly and create multiple Adams and thought I'd post it up here!

HI ADAM!!!!!

Happy 21st Birthday Fathul!

Our surprise birthday for Fathul - somehow - failed! We were really expecting him to be surprised just how every other successful surprises would be like! This is how it went down:

After Friday prayer, I went over to my dad's place. I had lunch there and I kept myself busy until 3 o'clock. Malai picked me up half an hour after and off we went to buy Fathul's cake at Lof Bakery in Kiulap. I went home for a while after that because I had to change my clothes and to get the keys to their place.

We met up at Fathul's place around 4+. We didn't head up straight because we were still thinking of where to "hide" the cars. At last, they just parked their cars just a block away from their flat. I knew and had a positive feeling that he wasn't going to come home early because the last time he came back from work was at 5:22 pm.

Feeling so calmed and relaxed, we went upstairs while thinking of what to do when he arrived home. We settled down and started planning, but a few minutes in the midst of it, we heard someone budging the door. First person that came to mind? Fathul! We knew it had to be him! Without any hesitation, we automatically TRIED to hide ourselves as quick as we could! I hid behind the door, but sadly, was spotted by Fathul because the door bounced off my sandals. It felt awkward! Birthday boy wasn't surprised! Well, maybe he was a little because I told him that I was at my dad's place. Surely he didn't expect me to be there! Eventually, Malai and Nieza came out - laughing! Because the surprise failed!

Anyhoot, he blew out the candles and there stood a happy man. Unfortunately, the cake wasn't that delicious. It only looked delicious, but really - it's not. At least someone's happy to have found his girlfriend, his brother's girlfriend and his old friend having to show up at his place!

Happy 21st Birthday to Fathul!
Through thick and through thin, at highest highs and lowest lows, you've been and always will be apart of the Brothers! May Allah bless you always!

SAS Prom Night 2011.

We were invited to St. Andrew's Prom Night 2011 which was held at Polo Club. Only a few members of Aisle of Before could make it; Amin, Harith Waie, Waie Saipol and myself. We didn't have much time to practice the songs - not even a few days before! It's a good thing we had a quick practice at a quiet staircase just beside the stage. Amin was late, but luckily he came right on time. We played 3 songs accordingly:

1) Next 2 You by Chris Brown (ft. Justin Bieber)
2) Don't Let Me Go by The Click Five
3) Lullaby by Dear Juliet

I was nervous and a little worried because Amin forgot some of the lyrics to the songs (except for Lullaby) and I wasn't so sure if Amin could reach up to that high pitch of Chris Brown's, or Justin Bieber. But they're just covers anyway so no big deal. We played one song each turn because there were others performing as well.

It kind of gotten boring for me. As we performed the second song for the night, the audience seemed.. uninterested. There were cheers - but that was only during the first song. Not long after we played the second and third song, everyone was busy doing their thing. Well, we're still grateful to have had the chance to perform despite a long period of hiatus. I just want to say thanks to everyone who enjoyed each and every one of our performances and gave support even though we sucked! Yes, I think we sucked - BIG TIME! I hope you all had a great time tonight and have a blissful day ahead!

Gladiators FC 3 - 3 Cobra FC

I think we played one hell of a good match against Gladiators FC yesterday at Maktab Duli field. I played as a lone striker in the first half. I had a few chances which I was unable to convert to goals. We could've won, but Gladiators defended and played well.

In the first half, we somehow carelessly managed to concede 2 goals. Azrin's friend, Haziq who bravely ran up to join the attackers, slotted one for the team.

In the second half, they scored another goal which left us two goals behind. Time was still ticking, but we didn't give up. A beautiful freekick by Harith Waie from yards away left the goalkeeper awed and staring at the game ball which flew right over him and into the net. The last goal was scored from a sloppy freekick taken by me. The ball obviously was going out, but was kept in by one of the midfielders who was guarding the goalpost. Azrin tapped it in cooly and the scoreline was even.

For the record, Afiq received his first yellow card in his entire life! He was really mad, but football is football. Anyhoo, I am expecting another football match with the Cobras. Until next time! Thanks for reading!

"Project PS3 is ON."

I almost had a rough day yesterday. Seriously. It wasn't really the kind of thing I would have much expected on the start of a good and a relaxing day. Well, at least everything's a-okay now. I am thankful for the understanding we both have and am glad how we worked it out. Really not expecting another soon...

Guess what I did last night? Fathul and Fikri came over, but before they did, Fathul asked me on WhatsApp if I wanted to buy a new PS3 or still wanted to fix my old one. I am planning to get one though. Maybe as soon as mom is done dealing with everything here and there. There as in at our old home. (Don't mind me. I am sort of a mama's boy. Hehehe! :-*) They came over and had the idea to 'solder' something inside White Lightning. (My white PS3. Yes, that's its name!) The brought their own screwdriver, a spoon and a candle. Fathul tried soldering outside and created silver coated splatters which would result inside the PS3 later on. I didn't know that's how you make them! Thing was that the main source to opening the cover of the PS3 had a different type of a screwdriver head. I thought, why not just give it a try, right? I also wanted to see how it would turn out once it's fixed.

We headed out to SKH Department Store in Kiulap. I got myself a new screwdriver with 32 extra heads and a soldering iron. All cost below $25. I know I don't need the screwdriver and the iron at the moment, but I know they would be of great use in the future for me and maybe, perhaps, other people too!

Anyhoot, when we reached home, we started to slowly take the PS3 apart - piece by piece, screw by screw. We got to see what was inside the console and honestly, it was very confusing! Fathul had found a guide on fixing the Yellow Light of Death on the internet. We followed it one step at a time and finally we succeeded in reaching the bottom of the console where we saw the vigorous looking fan. (It looked like a spinner. You know, for the cars. Ok, no.)

To my surprise, it was very VERY dusty! I think that's the cause of the Yellow Light problem; too dusty that the PS3 couldn't keep itself at a steady temperature and BAMMM! - it overheated. We cleaned the PS3 inside out, followed the guide on where to open it up as well as having a video on YouTube. It showed a guy HAIR-DRYING two large chips and eventually spreading glue on them. I did so for about 20 minutes. After that, we put the components back together, but had a few mistakes along the way. We forgot which screws went where so we had to repeat the same job, but we had all night. In the end, we got them together and the PS3 looked as normal as ever. But, the problem still persists. I have no idea why. White Lightning is officially dead since the day it had gotten the YLOD. I miss you already...

Also, some screws were left... umm, unscrewed. I kept them in a safe place so don't worry. Who knows an expert will come over to my place and use his magic fingers. Ok, no. I should've taken pictures of the PS3 being torn apart and them at work. It felt like being in a game workshop - except it's smaller. (And not to mention, HOT!) Well, I'd like to thank Fathul and Fikri for trying to put my PS3 back to its healthy state. Job well done! Thanks again!

An exciting Friday.

I had a exciting experience today! I did mention I was alone at home, right? (Sadly, I still am though.) I decided to not skip Friday prayers and walk a long road to the mosque - alone. On my way out on the road, the shopkeeper who works in a convenient store just a few yards from my place was waiting by the sidewalk. He was waiting for a friend to pick him up. He did ask me to follow him and his friend to the mosque in Bandar, but I declined. Thank you. I said that I was going to Jame 'Al Asr Mosque. I shook his hand, greeted him and I continued my journey.

While I was walking in between SOAS College and the terraces, suddenly, a car drove up beside me. He opened the passenger door and asked me if I was heading to the mosque or not. (Obviously yes, right?) He was a stranger at first. I thanked him for giving me a ride. He asked a lot of questions - if I was Bruneian, my age, where I lived, who lived there etc. I just answered every question truthfully. He said that he usually goes to the mosque in Bandar for Friday prayer, but for the sake of my intention, he insisted on going to Jame. Once we reached there, somehow, he knew where I wanted to go - to the place where I always sit.

After the prayer was over, I just followed him back to his car. I didn't go home straight though. He had something to do in Bandar. I was in no rush so I just followed him. From there, it didn't feel right. It felt like something was about to go down - in a worse way - to me. As if I was thinking he had his buddies over in Bandar to cut my head off or something. Ok, no. No pengait topic. First, he went to Standard Chartered Bank to withdraw some money. I thought he would send me home straight after that, but then he forgot to do one more thing - pay his car insurance at Baiduri Bank. On our way there, he asked me for my name and in return, I asked for his. He said that I will always remember his name no matter what. His name is the 6th day of the week. Yes, Saturday (Sabtu) - with all respect, Haji Sabtu. I waited in the car for a few minutes. It was okay. I felt less scared. I was chatting to Nisa, Fikri and Fathul over the phone. That kept me company. I did think of driving the car away, buuuuuuuuut I didn't want to. I don't want to be a criminal, not ever. Life is too short to get caught up.

After he had settled with his insurance, we stopped by a nearby shop and, to my surprise, he bought me a drink! Can you believe that? He bought Mr. Brown coffee and Seasons Ice Lemon Tea. He held up both drinks and asked me to choose which one I wanted. I let him pick first, but he was too kind. Of course, I picked the ice lemon tea. Out of the blue, I was curious about the national service in Brunei so I asked him if he has heard any news about it lately. Fortunately, he has! He said next month, in December, they will start making the uniforms and whatnot. He is still not sure of the recruit though.

We then reached my place and he dropped me off without even touching a single hair on my head. Thank you, Allah - for lending me a kindhearted man with transport to go to the mosque and bought me a drink to quench my thirst. If it wasn't for all of this, I would've missed the prayer. Alhamdulillah. Here I am home safe and soundly.

Home alone.

I've always wanted to live alone, but right now - it is definitely not the right moment. Mom's away in Mulaut with my little sisters. My other siblings are staying with my dad. I was out with celebrating Fikri's birthday in Tutong. The full Brothers along with his family. Thanks to Fathul, Zul, Afiq, Malai, Nieza and especially the birthday boy for making it happen! It was a great night, indeed!

Thing is, my dad kept on calling me because there was no one at the apartment, no one to lock the door. Now, I feel so lonely as ever! There's not much entertainment BECAUSE:

1) Zul's PS3 had gotten the Yellow Light of Death. It happened when I was playing FIFA 12 with Afiq.
2) No guitar. Zul's borrowing it for a week.
3) No one here, but me.

SIGH. I wish my friends were here. I do. But my mom will be home later on. Well, I'm hoping for a good weekend ahead! :(

Happy birthday! (03/11)

Happy 18th Birthday to Muhammad Fikri!
Happy 17th Birthday to Azimah As!

I hope the both of you enjoy with whatever's to come! Have lots of fun! May Allah bless the both of you. I hope to see or bump into either one of you in the near future. Take good care of yourselves!
