366 out of 366

So it's 3IST DECEMBER 2012 now. only a few hours away from the new year, 2013. i dont know what to feel. happy? sad? excited? devastated? miserable? its a little bit of everything actually.
2012 is coming to an end. There were good moments and heartbreaking moments. So I gladly bid farewell to 2012 and welcome 2013 ♥ Page 366 of 366 - been through ups and down, yet i'm still standing strong. 2012 taught me a lot of new things in life.

so new year's eve eh? hmmmm~ i dont know why i should feel this way yknow. maybe its about the plkn thingy. oh waut did i mention i get to change my placement? i got at MILLENIUM, BERANANG *sigh* well atleast, afnan is going to be there too. better somebody i know than no one at all.

Another thing about this whole 2013 thing is that, i'll be one year older, one year more experienced, one year more matured. and i have to be a better person because im going to be 18 soon. which is good at somepoint. who doesnt want to be 18 right? but im not ready to grow up

anyway, i didnt plan to have any resolutions coz i never achieve it. but why not this year?? hahaha so i'll try to list down a few :
 1) have fun at plkn and get that thing finish and over with
2) achieve straight A+ s . insya Allah
3) get into any U and study what I WANT !!!!
4) get my driving license . . . fast ! i wanna drive !!
nnty kat twitter and facebook mesti ramai gile bwat countdown kan. lol. nak join la!! hehehe. oh by the way, just updated my tumblr page. hehehe dah bersawang dah. so you guys can check them out *bajet artis kejap* www.thielahisham.tumblr.com/
so maybe thats it for now. just a short update :)

Been There Done That part 3

My last day in Gold Coast. That morning we had our last swim in the blue ocean and in the pool. It was sad to leave that  place yknow. The best hotel ever. But we checked-out form the hotel at 10 and made our way to Sea World. We spent a few hours there to watch shows and see animals that we've been dying to see. Penguins, of course our all time favourite. We get to see them so close but sadly i cant feed them.

 There are Spongebob Squarepants' Parade. Veyy attractive and colourful. I danced along with the music. It was fun.

After that, we walk around the park and saw different sea animals. We get to see a polar bear. i mean for real. A real , alive polar bear. how cute !!

At one time, me and Afrina rode this pirateship called CASTAWAY BAY and i got soaked. i was soaking wet. I didnt expect it would be like that. The coordinator did warn us. 

"Do you know that you're gonna get wet riding this?"

I did say yes because i thought that she was just kidding. But i was completely W.R.O.N.G ! Memang habis basah lencun weiiii. I tried to use the people dryer but it was no use. I let it dry naturally. But it was fun. Many people shot us with the water guns. But what annoys me the most, the time that i didnt ride that thing, no one shoots. Urghh !!

Then, we raced against the time to go to the show. We made it to watch 2 shows. Sea lion show and a dolphins show. Both are great ! The sea lion show was anout the sea detectives solving a crime and the dolphins show was showing how spectacular dolphins can be. I love dolphins.

It was fun and a wonderful experience ever. It was definitely the best vacation ever in my life.I will remeMber what dad said to me.

"You're lucky you know. After 46 years only i get to go to the best place and beach in the world. And you're only 17"

Thank you mom, thank you dad for this  SUPER DUPER AWESOME time of my life. So, maybe next time we'll go some other place?? LOL XD

Been There Done That: part 2

So the next day is MOVIE WORLD time :) Well i think this is one of the best park ever.

So when i got in here, i feel like im in a superhero festival. Because all i see are those Marvel superhero wax dolls, and rides. And i it awesome i tell you. 

The dudes yang menunggu kedatangan ku :p

So the first ride we rose is called THE BATWING. This ride is batman-themed. We sit down four by four, i rode this with dina maya and dad. Then, it blast off so fast and high, it feels like you're literally in a jet. Rase macam tertinggal perut kat lantai. But it was awesome. Kain seluar terbang terbang. Nasib baik tak terangkat tinggi. LOL xD ayah at first cuak jugak, but he's cool. Kakngah yang jerit kuat. That is so her.

Next we went in the HALL OF JUSTICE to ride on ---> JUSTICE LEAGUE the ride. This is where we helped the JUSTICE LEAGUE to save the world. With lasers. hahahaha !! This is the ride like Transformers. 3D thingy. I lost to Maya, she shot the most. But i shot like a pro. hehe. Yang ride ni, we all one family naik but in a separate car (can i call it a car?)

Third thing, ICE AGE 4 : THE DAWN OF THE DINOSAUR 4D. Like every 4D show, ade kerusi gerak2 , air terpancut, and feels like we're in it. This one is Xmas-themed and Afrina had a really good time. She burst out laughing out loud.

The next one is one of the best. SCOOBY-DOO SPOOKY COASTER. yes, it is spooky alright. if you watched the movie, the car is actually the same. I love it. But scared at the same time. It;s dark and eerie sound fills the air. There's this one time, our car naik thing elevator thingy then tibe2 dia senyap. For quite sometime la jugak, I thought dia nak lepas ke bawah, tengok2 dia turun macam bukit but backward and its dark so tak nampak. Memang jerit la ! hahaha  but its not that spooky la, ive been on worst. This is one of my fav ride in MOVIE WORLD :)

The WILD WEST FALLS You'll travel past Indian reservations, ghost towns, geysers and wagon trains to put you right in the middle of a western movie set.Yang ride ni naik on some kind of a log then dia bawak naik tinggi and turun. the first one turun backwards but not so high, yang second one turun face first, but tunggi gila. 70 degree. Habis basah kitorg. haha best sgt sgt.

We ride on SUPERMAN ESCAPE! The highest roller coaster ever! You're taking a nice ride through the Metropolis roller coaster subway. Then bang! Rumble! Earthquake! Before you know it LOOK UP IN THE SKY, IT'S SUPERMAN!- propelling your carriage skyward at 100km per hour! Go from zero to 100km an hour in only two seconds. This ride is the most wanted ride. queued for almost an hour for this ride but it's worth it !

Then there are also shows in the middle of the park. There ScoobyDoo and the gang, Batman, Looney tunes and many more ! Then we go to the Kids' site. Its so cute there. Makes me want to be a little kid back

But, im so sad because there are two of the most biggest attraction that we didnt get to ride. Its the GREEN LANTREN and ARKHAM ASYLUM. Bummer . we were so looking foward for this two but what to do. Bende ni bukan 10 December. bengong gila. Dah la rides dia EPIC !

The next day : Day 4. We went to WET n WILD WORLD. Yup it is literally wet and wild

there are Epic rides here. I rode on almost everything except for 3 major rides because there are so many people. We were a lil bit heartbroken but oh well. The rides that we dont get to ride is the TORNADO , THE BLACKHOLE and the CONSTRICTOR. name gempak gempak kan?

So, the first ride is the AQUA LOOP ! sumpah bende ni style. We have to wear this lifejacket-like board ob the back. then naik tangga, and at the top you will see this 4 tubes. Sorang masuk satu tube. I got the yellow tube. Mase kat dalam tube tu kita kene berdiri, sandar kat dinding tube tu, silang kaki and tangan pun silang jugak pegang board punya tali. then ade dengar countdown " 5 , 4 , 3 , 2, 1"and right after that, lantai tube yang kita pijak tu tibe2 hilang. ZOOM memang laju turun. Huhuhu awesome gila slide ni

Then kitorg naik SUPER 8 AQUA RACER ! this one macam kat sunway. Yang kene meniarap tu. That one best jugak. I got to use the purple board. Hehehehe !! But this one is higher and faster.

After that kitorang naik RIVER RAPIDS. name je ade river tapi tak de pun. Its a slide jugak. 4 to be exact. 2 closed and 2 open. Best la naik ni. very loopy and high. Kurus aku time pegi wet n wild ni sebab semua kene naik tangga tinggi tinggi.

MAMMOTH FALLS. Its an awesome white-water rafting experience on Mammoth Falls with my family. Wind around the raging rapids in a four-person tubes on this 250 metre long slide, as we were twisted and turned all the way to the bottom.

The SURFRIDERS. This one is a ride yang tak main air. 16 person being 'tied' on a surf board. then it brought us up and down and up again. I was scared at first but Maya told me that we've been on higher, we've been on faster and we've been on spinnier. LOL

Then Dina and me we went on MACH 5 and KAMIKAZE together. Maya nak pegi main kat beach pool with afrina. So we went just the two of us. Both of this ride is in the EXTREME H2O section.

 The MACH 5  is so high up, i cant recall how many levels we went. Mach 5 ni ade 2 slide utk ramai (kene pakai float) and ade 3 slide untuk sorang. Kitorg naik yang sorang sbb x de flaot.. Yang personal slides tu is one level higher from the family punya. The slide sangat sangat tinggi, curam and laju ! Best weiii !!!!

KAMIKAZE pulak lagi gila ! this one wajib naik 2 orang. no more, no less. Ride on this big yellow float. Went up the stairs while bringing it up for about 3 levels. then duduk facing each other. then slide down backwards/facefirst 70 degree. Yang ni macam main boomerang kat Bukit Merah. Tawu tak yang macam huruf V tu. But this one lagi cuak kowt.

The last and final ride kitorang naik is thee most thrilling one. it's called the SKY COASTER. this ride is not FOC, kene bayar. Ade for single, double and triple. We went for triple (me, dina and maya) mom and dad tak berani nak naik. So they just watch from downstairs. Dia ikat kitorang bertiga together, and kitorang punya condition is MENIARAP !! yes meniarap with nothing to hold but each other's arms. Like this

and then, the rope pull us up up up up up high into the sky. Seriously time tu rase macam nak mati pun ada. Bayang kan la, the view is . . .  gosh i can see everything and all of the people seems like ants. No kidding. I always dream of being able to fly but not like that. hahaha. after we reach the maximum height. then the speaker said "3 . . 2 . . 1 . . FLY !" at that time Dina pulled the string and  WHOOOSHHHH we go !! Sumpah seraaaaaaaaaaammmm. Bende ni buat kitorang macam pendulum tawu tak !! Grrrrrr~ cuak cuak. When i get down, i think that was the closest thing to death. hahaha. THAT'S WHAT WE CALL A FINALE !

After all the fun at Wet n Wild World, we changed our clothes and head to HARBOUR TOWN to go shopping ! HT ni kire macam tempat Factory Outlet , and murah la. Ternampak ramai Malaysians jugak kat sini. After that, we went back to our hotel. Had dinner and we to bed. what an awesome day.

Been There Done That : part 1


Heyyaaa !! So, i got back from my vacation -The best one everrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr- so im about to blog about it. Brace yourselves. 

So, our departure from LCCT was at 10.30 am on 5th Dec . so we have to be there atleast 1 and a half hour before. We rode a taxi/van there. At home, nenek atok and bibik ada. Dorang jaga rumah la kiranya. then after check-in barang and everything, we waited and ate a little. We brought 2 big luggage of clothing (the whole family) and a bag for the upcoming souvenirs but at the time being we put in foods.

The 8-hour flight felt so long sometimes but i was prepared. brought books to read but frankly speaking, most of the time i just sleep. coz i think that's even better.When i arrive at GOLD COAST AIRPORT, its already dark. At that time it was 8.10 pm. It's 2 hours earlier that Malaysia's time zone. so in Malaysia, it's 6.10 pm. After that we went to our hotel with a taxi.
Sea Temple at Soul, Surfers Paradise
 At first macam sesat jugak la. We've been moving around and around and around but at last , we made it.

This is our hotel 

the interior design of this hotel is just magnificent. My first reaction was  . . . "WHOA" and it's the best hotel i've ever stayed. after unpack sume, kitorg rest je la. Ye la, penat kowt. And online jap. Thank god ade wifi. Afrina happy la die bole main game die.

Subuh in Gold coast was at 3.22 am (that's 1.22am in Malaysia) awal gile kan? There, kul 5 dah cerah dah. Macam kul 7-8. Because it's summer. So the DAY time is longer. Dalam kul 6 lebih tu, dah ade orang kat beach tu. Swimming, cycling, jogging, skateboarding. Dorang mmg rajin workout. Speaking of summer, all the people there wear Short pants and they have coloured nails. Awesome kan? But sometimes kan, nampak pants yang lebih kurang same, trend kowt. Its like duotone. Cewahh mentang2 ade tudung dua tone kan. hahahaaa..
their nail colours are sooo vivid. cantik sangat
At 9 we get ready and pack things that we need, Sunblock, water, towels, swimming suit. And off to Dreamworld and Whitewater World.

It was AWESOME !! The first ride that we went on is the BUZZSAW. bende ni dia laju naik tinggi and almost 90 degrees. sampai kat atas dia pusing pusing turun. naik, pusing, turun. but laju gila. Best la, time ni bole tahan ramai orang because its thefirst thing that you'll see when you get there.

then we go on the THUNDER RIVER RAPID. this one is a family ride. Just duduk duduk je. nothing much *cewahh* but best la. Sedap je duduk. But actually, its not that relaxing taw coz macam nak tonggang terbalik jugak, but x la teruk sangat. haha

Next, mom and dad brought afrina and danish to Whitewater World, because they are getting restless. So im left with Dina d Maya. So we went to MOTOCOASTER. kat sini macam saket hati sket bukan sebab tak best, but beratur LAMA GILA NAK MATI. bende tu rosak dua kali so we have to wait for the engineer to fix it. But when we get on it, it was fun. Macam naik moto betul. haha

The next one is, THE CLAW. dgr name pun seram kan. This one it takes you up like a pendulum from 2 o'clock to 10 o'clock sambil turn 360 degrees. Peeeeh best gilaaaa !! kalau THE CYCLONE pulak roller coaster macam biase je, tak la laju sangat but COOL. Ramai nak naik!

Next, we went on WIPEOUT. This one, memang macam kene uli. Dia bantai macam ape je. Pusing pusing pusing. Kejap ke depan kejap ke belakang, senget senget la. Brrrr gila ! If ypu guys ride on this after your meal, hahahaha you're gonna lose it.

Then, we went to SHREK and MADAGASCAR. Rode on a few kids thing like the roller coaster, Gingy's Glider. Comel je. So colourful. Actually, its more like Afrina's place laa :)

The last but not least, the one that we've been looking forward to is THE GIANT DROP. The name says it all kan? This ride took like 45 mins to hour queue. But it was worth it. It brought us 39 storeys high *no kidding* we could see the Ocean from up there. It took us up slowly and steady and pause. the moment bila dia stop tu yang gerun because anytime bole dia jatuh. That's the thrill part la. After a while the suddenly . . .   FREEFALL !! seriously. memang dia bwat macam freefall. Mane tak menjerit time tu. But it was AWESOME.

What we had for dinner is another story. Mase tengah jalan2 kat Cavill avenue and Surfers Paradise boulevard, we tried to find something to eat. Alhamdulillah! Ade jugak benda yang halal. Certified. So we got pizza and kebab. Pehh pizza ade, kebab ade memang bole la hidup kat sane. Satisfying. Not because sebab tgh lapa (but mmg tgah lapa pun), but the taste is sooooo good :))) so i can conclude that the things that we had for dinner are pizza, kebab, subway sandwich, maggi (from home) Layan la. 

Each morning, we wake up early and spend the morning at the beach and pool. Name pun SURFERS PARADISE kan. So logically, a paradise for surfers are . . .  THE WAVES ! Just imagine it. 
My description of the beach:
~ Clean, white, floury-like sand
~ Blue, cold and crystal clear ocean
~ Strong, tidal waves
~ Seagulls everywhere
~ the best beach you could ever imagine

JSYK, pantai dia tak dalam pun. i mean the further you go, the water level is only at you knees or thighs, but the waves is strong and makes it look deep.
