Moved into my new nest!

September 10, 2011 4 comments

Yea I have been in England for few days. But before I stepped into Leeds, I have spread my footprints over Manchester, Preston, and Liverpool!!! Would update more about them soon!

Today I moved into The Plaza, the place where I am going to stay for the coming one year. It was not a good way to start my life in Leeds though. First I reached here with all the luggage, heavy enough, and when I checked in at around 3pm, the staff told me that my room wasn’t ready. As there were lotsa people moving in and out recently and the last person just moved out this morning. They need some time to clean up.

Basically I think they are just lazy. ZzZz… Things could have been done easier and smoother.

So I had to wait for another 2 hours. How to kill time? Walking around, not knowing the way, a totally new place to me, alone. The emo and lonely kind of feeling started to grow. I missed my family and friends in Malaysia. I missed my seniors and friends in Preston too. And Su Ann & her BF is still not back from Liverpool yet!!! I felt extremely empty…

Finally it was 5. And I got to move into my place. Apparently the bed size is not normal single bed, it is bigger, sort of “Super single”. Smaller than double but bigger than single. The bed sheet I brought couldn’t fit. And there is no pillow, no duvet. I will need to buy them. Alright, I started cleaning and tidying my room, unpacking my luggage.

Almost done by 7-ish. Internet is not working, which made me very insecure. And the counter was closed at the hour (what the heck) so the earliest I can ask for their help is tomorrow morning. ZzZzZz…. Ok, decided to go out to buy stuff and food.

Just realised that their shops and supermarkets close at 5-ish 6… WHAT THE HECK! Even Morrisons was closing already when I reached there. Eventually I only managed to buy  pillow and a mug. No time to slowly choose, and I was so damn blur. Couldn’t get anything for myself, I felt damn stupid. And super angry at myself for not realising their closing time. Hungry+regret+annoyed+lonely+super cold wind blowing —> I almost cried! Seriously. All I wanted was someone there to be with me, to talk to me, or to listen to me. At least I know I am not alone over here. But nah…

I suddenly missed my home so so so much what the heck!!! Darn I haven’t even started class yet for goodness sake!!!!

Okla, this is totally out of topic. I was supposed to talk about my new home. HAha!!! Let picture tells the story. Taadaa!!!


My new nest!

Time to Say Goodbye

September 3, 2011 1 comment

I have been busying with my luggage packaging. It was not fun at all. So many things to consider, to bring or not to bring, and at the same time need to fit all of them into my not-so-big-and-not-so-tough-luggage, whilst cannot exceed the baggage weight allowance, which is 30kg. But I have freaking a lot of stuff to bring!!!  argh….

And have been attending farewell dinner(sss) with relatives, friends, parent’s friends and more friends. Receiving angpow isn’t a fun thing as it means that I will need to bring back more present for them. Anyhow I truly appreciate it, thank you so much for all your wishes!! :)

Damn, I don’t know how many kg I have gained throughout this period!!

Having said that, I felt so mentally unprepared to leave. Totally…

Hope this is just a transition period, hope I get myself adapted in real soon. ><

Anyhow I don’t enjoy this crap… Please get me over this!!!!!!
