A motivation, reflection and reminder.

Hi there, it's spring break now. Got tons of work to do but I'm gonna take a two-day off anyway. So, here's the thing, I attended an annual workshop by my sponsor two days ago, and our advisor showed us this motivational video, which I found quite interesting. It does lift up my motivation a little bit. Here's the video,

Just wondering, what happened to most of us nowadays? Why are we belittling ourselves and keep telling that we're weak, when in fact, we can push ourselves more than we usually do? It's not easy, it's hard, it's a tough road but nevertheless, we can do this, inshaAllah. 


"Ustaz ada nasihat untuk bekalan kami?"
'Jagalah Allah, maka Allah akan menjaga kamu. Apa-apa pun yang kamu buat, kamu jagalah hubungan kamu dengan Allah.'



Whatever you are going through, know that you will be able to do it, inshaAllah.

Take care :)

An unintended visit to Scientology church

It was Tuesday, I had no class to attend so I thought, why not go to the city for a change of air after a few days dreading over something I had no control upon. Anyway, I was on my way to drop the postcards for a few friends when a guy approached me, asked me if I have some time to spare because he's conducting a survey. There are only three questions he said. So I said, yeah sure why not? Even though at that time the traffic light has turned green for the pedestrian to cross. Since I was in no hurry so I decided to entertain his questions, which are as follows: 
  1. What do you always wanted to become? 
  2. If there's one thing you can change, what would that be? *Haha I totally cringed at my answer for this! Haha* 
  3. Is there anything that you wish you had more of it? 
I think it's because of my answers, he was kind of interested and offered me a *free* personality test. And I was being as short-minded and ignorant as ever, I said yes. When we were walking to the test center, I legit have thoughts like, "What if this guy suddenly robs me or do something weird to me? Why in the world did I agree to come with a stranger? Are you really that bored that you decided to walk with this guy to someplace you don’t know?" Haha, I was so carefree and couldn't care less I think, for that split second though. 

During that short walk to the 'place', he tried to make conversation, asked for my name, what I do here in Sydney and stuff but when I came to my senses, I quickly interrupted him and asked which organisation is he from, and that's when we arrived in front of the building. The Scientology Church along Castlereagh Street. He turned to me and said, "I am volunteering here. If you would like to come in and do the test, please." I was startled, but I still followed his steps inside. 

"Have you ever been to any church?" He asked.

'Oh I have been to a couple. Have been to St Mary's Cathedral a couple of times.' 

"Oh that big one?" 

'Yeah the very one in Hyde Park.' 

"Oh, even I had never been there." 

'You should, it's nice in there.' 

Then he walked me to a table and gave me a set of questions and asked me to help myself to answer the questions. And so I thought again, why not? Well, that's obviously before I looked at the questions, there are freaking 200 questions in there. Haha, I am so screwed at this point but oh wells. 

There's totally no way I'm gonna finish this in a short time if I choose to answer it properly. So, I briefly read the questions and kept on answering and finished in around 10 minutes. A girl took my answer sheet, told me to watch a video while they processed my result. So I sat there, watching a 5-min video on how to improve your success by tackling three major issues that usually encountered by most people. It was quite simple but it does make sense. 

Right after I finished watching the video, this is when a tall good-looking guy who happened to be the highlight of my visit to this church came to me and said, 

"Hi Sabrina, I'm Paul."


I thought I already posted this one but I actually saved it to draft HAHA. Anyhow, the story is too long to be written, so yeah, I'll just save it for personal conversation hihi.

And this is probably my only post for September though haha, sorry Angah, kaklong busy sikit. Kesian Angah asyik check blog kaklong tapi takde post baru hihi.
