Day 5 - A picture of something you love

Commitment is drifting away, seriously.
However, the race is still on.
Fighting! :)

Day 5 - A picture of something you love.


I just love to star-gaze. Walk outside at night, do nothing, just to see the stars shine. The feeling is so good, to sit back and relax, enjoying the amazing view. SubhanAllah. Plus, Sydney's sky is very clear and the air is pretty clean to breathe in.

The last time I went star-gazing was last two weeks with my roomie Mira but that was actually to see the 'supermoon' (and girl talk of course!) *Though in the end, the size of the moon that we saw that night was normal like usual*. However, it shone a bit brighter and clear that night, SubhanAllah, amazing. :) 
We walked at around 8.30 pm from our house to Macquarie Centre (about 20 minutes walk) and then walked home. Takda kerja.

Me and Mira <3
My dream since I was small (which is not accomplished yet) .. Is to witness a shooting star. The sad thing about Macquarie Park - the area that I lived in particularly, it is really quite and kinda dangerous to go outside and 'ambil angin malam-malam' especially after 8pm because people here sleep very early. 

Anyway, I love the painting below alot. The moment I first saw it in my Arts in Early Childhood class last semester, I immediately fell in love with it. Stars are everywhere and you can see the reflection in the water.. The thing that caught my eyes was the two people in the picture on a beautiful starry night. Simply mesmerizing.

Vincent Van Gogh - Starry Night
So that's what I love to do, always. Star gazing. :)

Day 4 - A picture of something you'd like to do again

Day 4 - A picture of something you'd like to do again

Superman Escape, MovieWorld - Gold Coast. (Winter 2010)

I wanna be Superman again!


Yeah I would definitely want to ride the Superman Escape roller coaster again! Ini lah roller coaster paling tinggi, paling curam dan paling laju I've ever ridden! The best part of the ride was.. It moved a bit slow at the start (with a background voice telling the situation -- people in a subway (us!) were having an emergency so Superman had to come and save us fast)... And it accelerated suddenly at the speed of 100km/h (or so) -- when he 'came and pushed the train from the back'. Yeah, it was launched suddenly! I could literally feel blood rushed to the head when riding this. Loved the adrenaline rush!

Located at the Movieworld theme park in Gold Coast, this was a must for those who enjoyed riding roller coasters. I think it was Pidi who sat next to me during the ride. And oh, we took the front seats!! I loved sitting at the front row as I could see clearly the view from the peak and the steepness of the track. I held my arms out of the coach all the time during the ride although they warned earlier not to do so. Felt like flying! Love, love, love the feeling! I screamed out loud too! (til I had no energy at the end of the ride)

This is Pidi.

I really felt like being saved by Superman at that time! By the way, my arms hurt for about a week after that. Maybe it was because of the gravity pull since the ride had 2 upside down turns and it was really fast.

Day 3 - A picture of the cast from your favourite show

Hello guys and girls. It's the third day and today's theme is "A picture of the cast from your favourite show".

My favourite show ever is ... UGLY BETTY!

I am a die-hard fan for this television series and have been following the episode since it first came out, when Betty was still like this.
Betty in 2006.

Before she turned to...
... THIS!
(Betty in 2010)
I watched the whole four seasons but now it had ended.. And I sometimes watched it again and again during my free time. Yeah, never got bored of it although I already knew the ending and even memorized some lines!

Back in maktab, I had my own television in the room. Despite having my own tv, I switched it on only once a week. Yeap, only for Ugly Betty. My ex-roomie Asrin was the witness, go ask her. Hihi. Luckily, I shared my passion for Ugly Betty with my other two partners in crime so we watched tv illegally together in my room every Tuesday.

My two partners in crime.
Left: Farah and me. Right: Mek Sya.

Just a little side info. My room was actually next to the hostel's tv room.

Back to Ugly Betty.

I could laugh, giggle and even cry watching Ugly Betty. Yeap, I cried watching the last episode when she finally left Mode - the place where she learnt about life which sometimes treated her the hardest way - in order to pursue her bigger dream... Cause Mode was the place everything started and it had to end..

I somehow could feel a connection between me and her. Despite her erm say... not so stylish figure, Betty was indeed a very confident girl! I envied her high-spirited self and her affection towards the people around her. I watched her fall and got up again -- she really was a true motivation for me.

Love, friendship and family were all the issues being raised in the series. It was really hilarious, fun, sad and an 'all-in-one' drama comedy and I always laughed out loud even though I watched it alone.

Betty might just be a fictional character and why should I feel so connected to her?
I believe there are parts of Betty in me. The positive ones, which I still need to dig deeper in my journey to really succeed in life.

Nevertheless.. I guess.. A truly happy girl can laugh and smile though no one's around her to actually make her happy, right?


See you on Day 4.

Day 2 - Me and the person I've been closest with the longest

Day 2
A picture of you and the person you have been closest with the longest

Us at Subway, Sunway Pyramid - January 2011 - the day she cried :P

Say hi to Amirah Azizi!

If there was an award for the very-best-friend-you-ever-had, she deserved it. We were room-mates during our matriculation year in Kuala Pilah back in 2006 and have been good friends ever since. Though we were sometimes quite busy with our own lives, she never failed to be there whenever I needed her. I couldn't believe she even cried a tear when I hugged her for the first time after a year being apart (when I went back to Malaysia last summer).

The best thing she ever said to me that touched my heart was..
"Babe, you know what. You are the only person who understands me, my feelings, my jokes, my sadness although sometimes I rasa macam nak sepak you. I miss you :'( ".
via a text message dated 19/8/2010. It is still saved in my Nokia E71.

Err by the way. Yeah we insult each other a lot. Like HELL ALOT. But that's what best friends do right? :)

Love you forever Siti Noramirah Azizi. xoxo

Change of name

I've been considering changing the url address for this blog. It doesn't really portray me, does it? Heh. 'Bread and Tuna'? Really? How did I come up with the name 'bread and tuna'; some of you might have wondered.

It occurred last year, when I was planning to start a new blog. It was somewhere in Ramadhan, the fasting month. I was so hungry one night and was sitting in front of the lappie thinking of an appropriate url address. So I went to the kitchen and grabbed two slices of bread and spreaded tuna on them. Not that creative, I know but that was how I came up with the name. There's nothing metaphoric about it, really. Hehe.

Actually, sedikit sentap tadi with my younger sis when we chatted through facebook. I told her enthusiastically about my 30 day photo challenge and she suddenly asked me
"Min, don't you have any plan of changing the name? Macam blog nak buat sandwich je rasa".


Suka spoilkan mood orang tau.

By the way, thanks for the feedback and huge support for my photo challenge, guys and girls. I know it isn't really a big deal, but somehow I'm all up for it. Eager to update my blog regularly. Muchoz gracias.

At least I get to practise my writing skill here. :)

Day 1. Picture of Myself.

A picture of yourself with fifteen facts

this was taken in last year's winter (2010) at Macq Uni train station.
So here's my first day picture.

And these are 15 facts about me.

1. Let's go with the easy stuff first. I'm a November baby. November 18, specifically.
2. Favourite number is 8.
3. I love the sky at night. Sit doing nothing, just to see the moon and the stars. Never fail to amaze me, subhanAllah.
4. A good secret-keeper. *syhh* You can count on me.
5. I talk when I feel like talking.
6. I like singing. Wait, I mean, I LOVE singing. Not that I have a good voice, I don't. But my housemates would definitely agree with this one as they will not be a day without me singing at home.
7. I'm pretty bad in organizing study schedule, but good in organizing jalan2 trips.
8. I have an account on Friendster, Myspace, Tagged, Tumblr.. You name it.  
9. Procrastination and me are like sisters. No matter how much you hate them, they are always with you. :P
10. I like good guys. LOL. 
11. I don't always show what I feel within.
12. I dream of a simple beach wedding.
13. Swimming and badminton are the only two sports that I'm good in. Not the athlete-level, anyways.
14. Shrek is my all-time favourite movie.  
15. I am single and available.

Hahaha. The last point doesn't make me sound desperate, does it?

Starting a challenge.

Now that I have one week break from any assignment, I feel like updating this blog. Despite that, I find myself struggling a bit in finding ideas of what to post. Although a friend once said to me "If you have nothing to say, say nothing". He was right, indeed, but what's the point of having a blog and leave it to dust? Hee. 
So, after browsing over few interesting blogs, I spot one that gives me an idea of what to update on. Regularly.

It's a photo challenge. 30-day photo challenge to be exact. It was actually a competition organized by one blogger but the dateline is already over. I'm going to take part anyway, just for fun. :)

So the challenge is like this. I need to post pictures according to the theme mention below.

Day 1 - A picture of yourself with fifteen facts (you don't have to reveal your face)

Day 2 - A picture of you and the person you have been closest with the longest

Day 3 - A picture of the cast from your favorite show

Day 4 - A picture of something you'd like to do again

Day 5 - A picture of something you love

Day 6 - A picture that makes you laugh

Day 7 - A picture of the person you do the silliest things with

Day 8 - A picture of your hero / knight / heroine

Day 9 - A picture of you and the person who has gotten you through the most

Day 10 - A picture of your most treasured item

Day 11 - A picture of something you hate

Day 12 - A picture of your favorite memory

Day 13 - A picture of your favorite band or artist

Day 14- A picture of someone you could never imagine your life without

Day 15 - A picture of something you want to do before you die

Day 16 - A picture of someone who inspires you

Day 17 - A picture of something that has made a huge impact on your life recently

Day 18 - A picture of your biggest insecurity

Day 19 - A picture and a letter (choose any photo and write short entry to explain why you've chosen it)

Day 20 - A picture of somewhere you'd love to travel

Day 21 - A picture of something you wish you could forget

Day 22 - A picture of something you wish you were better at

Day 23 - A picture of your favorite book

Day 24 - A picture of something you wish you could change

Day 25 - A picture of your favourite day

Day 26 - A picture of something that means a lot to you

Day 27 - A picture of yourself and a family member

Day 28- A picture of something you're afraid of

Day 29 - A picture that can always make you smile

By doing this, I'm putting my commitment ability to test here. Let's see how far I survive. Hope to complete the challenge. *fingers crossed*

Favourite quotes

I always believe that good quotations help lifting up the spirits that we lost. It's like a food to the soul, though they are just words. Nope they aren't 'just words', cause they could influence you and your thoughts if you really reflect towards it.

Here I would like to share my two favourite lines that always manage to keep me going.

This one has been my laptop wallpaper for quiet a long time. Just a little reminder to self not to expect too much from others, cause when we expect too high, the possibility of falling is high too. Just work on the reality as when things fall into place, it will be a sweet surprise for us.

Another quote that I fall in love with the first time I heard is:
Success is simple. Do what's right, the right way, at the right time.

Arnold H. Glasow

Simple, yet I don't do it often. Sometimes I need to repeat this in the head whenever I think of procrastinating things.

That's all for now. :)
