another day has gone

woke up at 5am this morning. it rained all thoughout the nite. the weather is getting colder day by day. steve disney's operation analysis class has always been interesting. the first class was entertaining - he repaired a punctured tyre in class - just to show us the process mapping. i guess this lecturer would be the most remembered lecturer when i leave cardiff next year.

it rains the whole day today. received a few emails from my best of friends - they are having a get together this deepavali. perhaps we'll have one too, here. my class consists of 312 students and i think about 90% are from India and out of the 300 +, i only know not even 50 of them, and honestly, at this age, i just couldnt be bothered anymore.

ammar and dad have been my inspiration here. it's tiring to go through the days being so far away from a place you call home, but it is what life is all about. i learn to have more patience in life, and learn to be thankful even more. syukur, thank you god - for all i have..

yesterday, it was exactly 1 months since the new chapter in my life began. it's been a month since we reached cardiff. it's a laid back town, quiet at times and the gloomy autumn weather adds to the 'colour' of cardiff.

honestly, i never expected it this way. it's unlike of london where everything moves so fast. we practically have everything here. feels like home but there are two things that i miss the most, the green leafy vege and fresh fish. shams (aka jack) said "How come the fish is vey expensive when we are so close to the sea?" Yeah.. eventually, they brought the fish from Swansea!

lectures and classes have started. feel like being in my younger uni days. with co-lecture mates of 311 students in the MBA class, I cannot help feeling a bit disappointed. the class is far too big and some act like children too. well, it's my choice. i made this choice and i have to live with it. just like the other choices that i make in my life. it's really challenging, but God willing, tomorrow I will be another day wiser, and stronger to go though life uncertainy..
