specially dedicated to mercer 1LT2 team :)

hello from edinburgh! finally i get some free time to update. the picture taken is part of the university; its very own (man-made) loch. i was walking by after settling some stuff with the bank (its so convenient that they have a branch on the campus!) and decided to capture the scenery. autumn just started; you can see the leaves are starting to turn yellow. the weather is not so bad, yet. the sun was out today, which is highly unlikely here, because it rains almost every day!

fasting is not so bad now. i think i was really weak for the first few days in the UK because daylight here is 16 hours, longer compared to malaysia. the shelves in my room are stacked with brahims, all kinds of maggi pastes, curry powder, coconut milk powder..you get the idea. my mom's here since saturday so she's been cooking for me :) bought some halal meat and chicken so i think i'll be fine.

my room's a little bit messy and feels a little less homey, so don't expect pictures anytime soon. the hall i'm staying in is quite convenient, there's a bus stop right in front of my room; the school is just five minutes walk away, and the student union is just at the back of the halls (there's starbucks over there :P). i've met some of my neighbours on my floor, just a few 'hello's and smiles. most of them are guys and they're always in groups! so i've resorted to stay and tidy up my room or visit shams once in a while.

anyway, that's it for now. hopefully more to come :) ramadhan kareem everyone!

Visiting shams at his room? That doesn't sound like a good idea. Be good ya! Make sure you join some clubs and stuff so you can make friends. I thought farah is around as well.

i only visited him at his room once. other than that, we meet up with each other. just had buka puasa with farah and a few seniors yesterday and met more malaysians and coursemates today!

I'm glad your doing ok and getting used to things. Raya will be tough i'm sure, but its a great learning experience. If you get in the mood for other food Glasgow has a halal subways, and the halal malaysian food (rumours, 21 Bath street, near Buchanon galleries shopping centre).
