Hey Edinburghers!! Are you one of those who are too busy with portfolios or thesis?
Or are you one of those poor souls who always come home from hospital or GPs around 6pm and cant be bothered to queue up in the Tesco?
OR you cant even cook?
Worry You Shall Not!!
Now, let us sort you out!
Ah Sit and Ah Ang's 2 pounds Takeaway.
Premium Quality of Good Food with On time Delivery. Rain or Shine, we deliver to your Door! Text us! 07894992989!
I observed a few qualities that i deemed universal among people that are going back malaysia to do fy1:
1. They know the name of the home minister.
2. The ratio of the number of malaysians studying in UK that they know to the number of angmohs they know is approximately 1000.
3. Their hobby: to waste time doing nothing together with a group of people who also like to just sit down and do nothing. Studying is teratogenically contraindicated up until 2 weeks before exams.
4. They do not speak English with an accent when they meet another fellow countryman. And they do not say Cheers Mate! Hey Ya! or those of similar category.
5. They are either superbly keen, or superbly slack. The in-betweens are usually the ones who will be staying here.
6. Their parents do not know that they would be sued if they stay here.
7. They claimed the peripheral allowances to the maximum.
8. They do not buy jackets or coats in their final year. Or anything that they cant get them home.
9. They got a gf at home or sort of.
10. They tend to blog. Actively blog. And probably subscribes to Malaysiakini.

So the story goes like this:
I think about 4 and a half years ago, I flew for the first time in my life, across half the planet from Penang-KL-London-Edinburgh.
I had with me a few hundred pounds in form of traveller's cheque and cash, from jpa.
And when I reached Heathrow, I was so hungry and thirsty. But I cant make myself to buy anything, or spend a single penny because I was still converting excessively: 7 ringgit to 1 pound.
I remembered drinking the tap water in the toilet and some ang moh apek told me that it is not safe to drink. So malu.
Then I took the connecting flight from Heathrow and I reached Edinburgh about 10.30pm, and this Malay dude, his name is Wafi, waited for me in the airport with another guy called PakYat, who drove to airport with him.
The first question I asked them, "Ei bros, you guys ada main bola ar?"
And it turned out that these two guys, until now, are probably high up in the top ten list of the most footie spirited people among all the people i ever knew.
And so, they said yes, and in fact they are going to play the next day, about 1 pm.
But then I didnt brought my footie shoes with me to UK at that time. Wafi said, no worries, tmr go buy.
I reached Abg Fadhil's house where I spent a night over before going to my own uni accom. He is one of the best cook i ever known, and he cooked for that house (the kampung melayu undergrads at that time) and he knew I was coming so he saved up some food for me. How nice.
So I still havent spent a single penny.
The next day, effectively about 10 hours later, Wafi brought me to buy shoe, to this place called the Sports World (now known as Sports Direct) in St James Mall.
I still vividly remember my first view of the castle when the bus travelled across the Princes St from West End. Stunning to the max.
Wafi paid the 80 pence bus fare (now 1.20pds) for me, because I dont have any change, and Lothian bus doesnt give change, until now.
In the Sports World shop, I found a pair of futsal boots, cap nike, for 20 pounds.
I took out my envelop, opened it, and took out 20 pounds, in one note, and bought the shoe.
And that was, the first Great Britain Pound Sterling I spent in my life.
On a pair of football shoe.
And today, 4 years and 3 months later, the shoe is still here.
But cant be used anymore, obviously. Holes everywhere. Even the studs are flat now. Like becoming bowling shoe already. But I still keep it, for memory.
In between, I also bought a lot of football shoe. Like:
And by the way, just 2 days ago, I went to Sports Direct.
And after 2 years of search for a jogging shoe, I found this:

If he is my son, I would rather go to jail for mercy killing after do the world a favour.

Classic example of what politicians are all about:
It is all about themselves
and what the delegates do leh when you so obvious show that kind of self above party's ambition?
They Kick You Out.

Sure six pack man.
Cycling all the way to GP, 3.9 miles away only.
and actually it is very entertaining. Apart from the hugely icy temperature and monstrous winds, i think this morning i took less than 1.29 calories.
It is all downhill.
This morning it took me like 20 mins. Normally taking a bus there also much cost more and took much longer.
When i cycled back
I took around 40 mins. Because most of the journey was hiking with the bicycle.
And worst is, this morning in a very random chat with one of the receptionist, i said i wanna to try jog there.
and then i said, ha ha ha!
babi, during lunch, some random health visitor came to me and said, "i heard you are gonna run here from nicolson street. Thats very good!"
anyway, gp was fun, so far.
