Got all spoiled and loved yesterday by some of my favorite ladies (and their little humans). Little Lai will be brought into such positivity and goodness; also so much smart-assed, quick-witted humor. @lepetitcafelv crushed the cake game and @elissaforever the champs and photography. 🥂💙
Followed this evening with cocktails and a fancy buffet dinner at Melba, with the wonderful @mskimberley81. We had to take several selfies before we managed to get a “serious” one, cause we were laughing too much (as evidenced in photo two 😂). So great catching up with you again hon. And now I will never have to eat again! Lol.
I know this is a bit overdue but I wanna write this still! I've been getting a lot of ques bout the University that I went to, how was it like, was I scared, how long did I take to get used to it, if I ever got homesick, were my lecturers scary/ helpful, how did I manage to stay alone, all by myself etc etc. I honestly don't know where to start but phew okay, I wanted to study abroad but I didn't really plan it. And everything happened like a well written script for me. Alhamdulillah. I settled in just fine, took me weeks to really get to know places, I got lost all by myself on my registration day and I ended up going to Tesco instead- (where I got to facetime Papa and let him know that I got lost and got tired of searching and which detergent should I get). Yes busses and taxis were everywhere but Sya being Sya, wanna walk lah wanna be adventurous lah apa lah. Was I scared to stay all by myself? No! I was excited and I liked my place (all thanks to papa). My neighbours were all nice. I didn't have any prob other than the fact that the fire alarm kept going offf for no reason.. It didn't take long for me to digest that I was there all alone & had to do everything on my own-Not sure if I was mentally prepared or it was cus, I had my rock solid pillar making sure that I was fine everyday. Of course that made it a lot easier for me to brain everything in such a short amount of time. It didn't feel like I had to get used to it, it was just flowing, it didn't feel like it was a process at all. My Uni experience was a journey. I had zero expectations, Cus Ive never liked school growing up, to begin with. But believe me, that was one of the best decisions that Ive ever made. Obv its different there- the teaching system, the teachers, the environment. Im not saying that there is better compared to here but its-Different-. And I happened to like 'there' better and I fell in love with school, with studying, with everything that I was doing. I felt my presence and I did enjoy every moment of it. I used to get all panicky whenever I had to attend tutorials here but that only lasted for a week in Liverpool. They made us feel really comfortable and they respect our opinions.
