Yet, what she did is NOT funny AT ALL.
It's actually a picture of me few months ago after I had 5 stitches on my forehead due to netball.
I found this edited picture done by my evil sister in my mum's phone. I am seriously gonna get her back. Just wait and see sis.
Anyway, speaking of my mum, many people are confused between me and mum because we look alike, we sound alike and our fashion sense is alike too (It's either my mum is young at heart or me, is old at heart) =.=.
Wherever we go, people think we're sisters and I don't mind that at all.
Whenever I go to mum's office, sometimes her staff mistake me as mum and I still don't mind much (A good chance to boss around. Hehe).
When my siblings, sometimes, call me 'ma' by mistake, that really gets on my nerve!!!
Therefore, from now on,
I'll try every possible way to make myself not to look EXACTLY like mum.
That means, I have to be slimmer than her.
mum, me, me, mum, mum, me?? Go figure yourself.

However, it's very thoughtful of her to give us presents all the way from Malacca.

I'd usually go for chick-lits except for Artemis Fowl and Harry Potter as chick-lits

Shoot, I blew it off again!
I opened my eyes to expect the worse coming from the second explosion of the chemical in the test tube.
Surprisingly, I didn't see any trace of the chemical on the table, on the floor nor at the wall.
Where did it go????
"Suraya, look!" Baydah pointed her finger to the ceiling above me.
And I saw this;
It dripped, formed bubbles, hardened and turned into dark brown just like the one next to mine (Notice: mine is the one in pale brown).
Seems like someone did that before me.
So, moral of the story;
Always expect the unpredictable from Suraya during Chem Lab.
That place is just suwei.
However, ME LIKE IT!!!!! Eventhough I can't really show it off to people but then I can always wear it, underneath my tudung. Lol.
Lynthia gave each of us (housemates) a pair of earrings. Joanna got a mosquito-like earrings and Yasmin's earrings are very nice for a prom (Or a date).
Anyway, thanks! That's very thoughtful of you :))
P.S. Who would have thought to give a hand soap as a gift? Bak kate Lynthia, "Practical!".

The low-end area. Trust me, I went there and ate there. Came out with a major headache due to the coconut drink. I think they put air tuak. This is all my dad's brilliant idea, wanting us to feel the real life of Jakarta. He ended up with food poisoning.
Waiting for shops to open at Mangga Dua

Though we were stranded on that day with no electricity and water supply as the only access road to get out was and still blocked by the landslide.
When the electricity was cut off in the early morning, we only thought that as a normal blackout and continued to sleep as usual as we didn't hear the loud explosion. But at around 5 in the morning, we kept hearing people chattering and running and also the sound of helicopters passing through the sky above our rooftop.
It was pitch black as the whole area beyond and above Taman Mewah had no electricity but my dad, as usual, was curious, so with a torchlight, he went out to check out what was happening.
After my dad found out about the incidence, my mum woke all of us up. We all went to the affected place which is just 500 meters away from Taman Bukit Jaya. We only saw it from the side view as we were not allowed to go nearer and thought only 4 bungalows involved but we were completely wrong about it as 14 bungalows were actually destroyed, including my mum's friend's house.
Lucky for my mum's friend, the whole family managed to run out for their life when they first heard the explosion.
Being stranded in our own home felt like we were in World's Apart. For the first time in many years I eventually felt how slow time was flying.
After few times trying to connect to the wireless net, finally, we managed to get online in order to get the actual news about the incidence and only then, we realised we were in a great danger and started packing our important stuff. (Before that my mum even cooked breakfast and did some house chores, that shows how clueless we were).
Later, my auntie informed us in the phone that my 8-month-pregnant -auntie who lives in the Oakland Condominium was shifted out by a helicopter. It was shown on tv and we missed it. Cis!
By 2 in the evening, people started moving out of that place by jungle trekking. My dad decided to stay in for one night at first but then he was advised to move out. So, just imagine, all of us (not to forget, my cat and hundreds of people), with heavy backpacks had to hike up a muddy, steepy hill. Thank God all of us had the experience of hiking during our Mount Kinabalu trip. Thus, it wasn't that bad.
We managed to get out by the time it started raining. Lucky us.
Anyway, we currently stay at my auntie's place and while waiting for the cleaning process to get done, we're flying to Indon tomorrow.
Thanks anyway to those who called us, texted us in order to check our safety.
And I feel sorry for those who have just lost their beloved ones. May them rest in peace.

This is not happening again.
"AbahWan (grandpa) cannot hold it anymore,"
"AbahWan, can you just hold it for few minutes only until Abah get back?"
My brother looked worried.
I looked terrified as the vivid memory of my grandpa accidentally shat on my foot flashed through my mind.
My grandpa couldn't sit still in the wheelchair. He kept on moving around, shaking a little bit with that painful expression on his face.
"I. WANT. TO. PEE!!!"
The thing about being old is, your body system seems to act in their own way and you are no longer in control over your body. They can do whatever they want regardless where they are, including in public for example, the hospital lobby. It's like they are the boss of us.
In my grandpa's case, apparently, his bladder is the boss of him.
My brother panicked. I was even more panicked.
"Mum! AbahWan wants to pee, what should I do?! I don't see any nurse and I don't think he can make it to the toilet. Tell me, how???"
I called mum. When you're in trouble, you always call your mum. Mums know the best.
"OK, DON'T PANIC (typical), ask Danial to get the bidet out of his bag and give it to your grandpa, he knows what to do,"
I love my mum.
So, I turned the wheelchair, facing the organisation board of HKL and let my grandpa pee-d in peace.
Though, the ugly part is, my brother had to clean the bidet afterwards.
However, that was a good lesson for both of us. How fragile we can be when we're old.

Do I have this strange aura going on that says "Hey, weirdos, look at me, I'm single, come pick me up even though I barely know you!"?
Even my mum advised Joanna to look out for me since I tend to attract weird, strange, eccentric men around me.
This is not my first time though that a guy whom I barely knew, asked me out.
I mean, how could he ask me out??
I could turn out to be someone bad like a criminal or a lunatic. Or worse, HE could turn out to be the bad guy in this situation. Wouldn't he even think of that?? (Unless of course, if it's Edward Cullen then I don't mind putting myself in danger. Lol)
I guess, this is just my luck =.=.
Anyway, I spent the whole day today watching How I Met Your Mother.
I think I like Marshall =D
Marshall, at the right end of the pic.

A guy sat next to me. I was indulging myself in Durian Durian cake.
TheGuy: Is that Sylphy car yours?
TheGuy: You know, the Sylphy car outside, black colour. Is it yours?
Me:.......No, I believe.
TheGuy: Oh, so what car are you driving?
Me: Hurm, does he think I own a car? Well, Nissan Sentra (mum's car).
TheGuy: Oh, me too! So, what do you think about the car so far?
Me: *Blink* So far...so good, I guess.
TheGuy: How long have you been driving it?
Me: Hurm, since 2005 I think. 2005, my foot! Hurm, sorry but I've got to go. Bye.
Though, the most crucial question is not about how old do I look, but it's about, me, having the look of a rich, career lady. (Since Nissan Sylphy is expensive, and that guy assumed it was my car..hohohohoho).
So, do I have what it takes to look like a rich, career lady?? *SS*
*SS* = Syok Sendiri
Abah: I bought this very high good quality of toothpaste. You can only find this kind of toothpaste at pharmacies. For sure, after this, no more plague will be formed. Very exxxxxpensive though.
Me: What brand is it?
Abah handed me the toothpaste.
After reading it,
Me: Abah, I am so convinced that no plague at all will be formed but do you know that you actually bought toothpaste for fake teeth??
Abah: Now it's very important to take care of your health, especially when you guys are at abah's age. So, today, I went to the pharmacy to buy Ikan Haruan essence for both body and mind strength.
Us: Oh, cool.
Mum: Let me read the box. This essence is good for bla...bla..bla...bla...eh??
Abah: What is it?
Mum: Aiyo honey, this essence is made for pregnant women la! Not for you!
Me: Shoot, zits are like everywhere!!
Abah: Oh, last time when abah was young, abah used to have pimple outburst too. But then, abah used this one product which is very good to combat acne.
Me: What brand is it? I doubt they still have it in the market.
Abah: No, abah went to the pharmacy yesterday and saw the brand, so abah bought it. Very good for skin. Now my skin feels so refreshing and doubtless, clean too.
Me: Cool, can I try it?
Abah went to his room and brought it out.
Me: Abah!! Not again!!! I think you bought the wrong product......Instead of buying Lactacyd cleanser, you bought Lactacyd feminine wash!...
The thing about my dad is, he is just in denial that his eyesight is getting worse.

"Hey! What are you doing?? Blogging?? For the first time....hahaha,"
"Why are you here??"
"I want to kacau you,"
"Nahhh, what are you writing about?"
"Don't forget to mention me on your blog OK?!"
(A conversation with J-O-E-L)
This is the obvious reason why I DON'T want to blog here in the library. Too many distractions.
Now, I am distracted by this foul smell coming from the person sitting next to me and Pal is having a loud monologue with himself, talking about AIDS and Hepatitis B.

Me: Abah, why are you just eating the coleslow? Do you want chicken??
Abah: Hurm, never mind, I'll just stick to coleslow.
Mum: Lol, it's OK to eat chicken once in awhile.
Abah: Hurm.........*staring at my KFC chicken, drooling I think*
Me: Mum, what's wrong with Abah and chicken??
Mum: It's because of your chicken story larh!
Me: Huh? What story?? Ohhhhh......
Actually, it's not my story, it's my mum's chicken story. She went to the Halal Conference last year and there was a talk about chickens and manboobs.
It seems that if chickens are not slaughtered properly according to Islamic regulations, the blood will not drain out completely and as we all know, most chickens are injected with estrogen in order to get it fat and meaty. So, the estrogen will still remain inside the leftover blood in the slaughtered chickens.
Thus, when men eat it, if so happens that some of the blood is still in the chicken, means that men eat the estrogen too and that's why we see lately men walk around with boobs.
And this has caused my dad a major trauma with chickens. Pity my dad.
Anyway, on the bright side, women don't have to go under the knives anymore. Just eat lots of chickens, perhaps. Lol.

7 Facts Of Suraya Sajoli
I am way too honest which sometimes, people take it as sarcasm.

"Eh, what's up with that kid's forehead??"
"Fell off the bed probably..." - Two security guards in Jaya Jusco
"OMG, what's happened to you??! Jatuh motor kah??"- PakCik Roti Canai
"GOODNESS!! What's with your forehead????"- MakCik PetrolStation
And the similar conversation goes on and on and not to mention, it comes along with strange, irritating, annoying stares as well.
Wherever I go, I'll be the centre of attraction in the crowd,
my FOREHEAD will be the centre of attraction as a big, square, white plaster is nicely placed, stick to my forehead as though I had a car accident and went for a brain transplant.
People look and stare at me as though I don't have a nose or a pair of eyebrows and I'm growing tired of it!
It's even more tiring when I have to explain what is this big, square, white plaster doing on my bloody forehead!
And as Malaysia is famous for its people's great sense of curiosity, they would ask further, such as;
A) Whoa, because of netball?? How?!
B) OMGOODNESS, how can an earring cause such a thing?
C) From which angle, do you think, the earring slashed your forehead?
C) I still don't get it how an earring can be as dangerous as that, like howwww~
D) It's very illogical. Gosh, pity you, is it going to leave a mark? Ish ish sayangnye~
E) Oh, it can be gone?? Huihh...Thank Lord for that! How long is the wound?
F) Can I see it??
and the ultimate one is,
G) Whoa, you must be one agressive woman, aren't you~?
Actually, I don't really bloody mind about this wound, the scar or whatever it's going to be that to some people, it would indicate the end of their lives but the sight of people looking and staring at me in that strange way makes me feel, well, self-conscious? uncomfortable?? upset??? angry????
Ohhhhhhh, how am I supposed to face KTT tomorrow........ =.=

If previously my wallet was stolen and I broke a pipette, this week, somehow, somewhere, I ended up with 5 stitches on my forehead.
Yes, people, 5 BLOODY STITCHES! Right above my left eyebrow and this is just because of netball.
See, netball is never a sport for sissies. It's a bloody game and that would be the first and the last game for me. I should better just stick to jogging and brisk-walking. And for extra precaution, maybe I should start thinking of buying a helmet.
Anyway, I'm coming back to KTT this Sunday as I have to see the doctor this Saturday in order to take out the thread.
Till now, I haven't dared myself to look at the wound as the gory image of it scares me =.=
P.S. Thanks everyone for calling, texting and commenting (fs/ms) me as for being concerned about my health. May God Bless Y'all! :)

This is what happened to me few days ago....
Joel: Heyyy, Suraya!
Joel: I know why you wear tudung!
Joel: Because you're BALD!! hahahahahaha~~
That's Joel, as I see him behind my cornea, pupils and iris of my eyes.
Anyway, on the last Monday and Tuesday, me and 39 other students, including the MPP's joined The Sekolah Angkat Programme where we had to tutor PMR students in Maths and Science.
It was a great experience, though, I must say, teaching is not easy, especially when it comes to students who are academically weak.
It started at 9 a.m. and finished at 5 p.m. with only less than 3 hours of break. So, it's obvious that in the end of the day, we all looked haggard and liveless but well, happy??
With my students =D
P.S. I'll put more pictures later, k? :p
P.S.S AND I'M NOT BALD!

I went out with her to Ampang Point today and look at what I found!
It's called Reader's Paradise and it's located on the second floor in Ampang Point (near the Taiwaneise House).
I have to say, at the first sight of it, I was skeptical.
But then, once I stepped into that place, I was indeed, in book heaven.
You don't buy books there, you rent it instead.
For example, you want to borrow a Cecilia Ahern ; Thanks For The Memories, you have to pay deposit of Rm38 and if you manage to return the book in the given time, the store will pay back Rm33 to you. Efficient, isn't it?
They have all kinds of books there, from the latest books such as the Twilight saga, Cecilia Ahern's, Jill Mansel's, Marian Key's, Dan Brown's till the old school ones such as The Sweet Valley series!!All these stacks of books are Sweet Valley series, people!
P.s. Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri! Maaf Zahir & Batin! Don't eat too much ya!

Joanna : Suraya, if you were given two choices, which one would you pick; to get married with a)A mechanic, poor but with a great personality or b) A rich man but wit a slightly poor personality?
Suraya : I would go for the one who is more good- looking.
Joanna : What if, both are good-looking?
Suraya : Then, I would go for the rich one.
Joanna : What if, you have more attraction towards the mechanic guy?
Suraya : Well, I would take the mechanic guy then...
Joanna : But that mechanic guy is poor, how are you supposed to survive?
Suraya : Well, I'll work hard to be rich and be with the mechanic guy.
Joanna : But what if, you'll never be rich?
Suraya : Then, I'll go with the rich guy...
Joanna : Even if you don't like him?
Suraya : I'll try to like him...
Joanna : But what if you can't like him and the chemistry between you and the mechanic guy is 10 out of 10?
Suraya : Do you know that, a lot of people divorce because of poor financial planning?
Joanna : But a lot of people divorce because of lack of love too...
Suraya : Ok, now you tell me, which one do you want me to choose and STOP MESSING WITH MY MIND!
Joanna : Hikhikhik...
* * *
Well, the truth is, it doesn't take much to fit my criteria for a guy.
All I need is someone with a big nose (for maximum air ventilation), a big voice and a big sense of humour. And of course, height is important too as my mum always tell me,
"Please stop the curse of short people in our keturunan!".
Wealth, I take it as a bonus point. ;)

Dear Readers, this is what happen when you don't take maths.....
Anyway, me and classmates, including Miss Sya and Miss Izzati had a lot of fun on last Wednesday night, having dinner at PizzaHut Bandar Baru Nilai.
We went there after break-fasting so there's no need to rush....and as usual, here are the pictures of us!
