Summer Days

It’s July, I know. My summer break began about a month ago but I never got to pen down anything until now.

Before flying back to Malaysia, my friends and I went on a trip to Spain for about 5 days. Everything was booked only about 2 weeks prior to the date and the flight tickets were hell expensive so we had to fly from London instead. We only visited Barcelona due to time constraints and we wanted to explore the city properly. Weather wasn’t great on the first day of our trip because it was proper pissing down that we couldn’t even get tickets to the museum. We checked the weather forecast and to every traveler’s horror, it showed rain rain rain and rain except one day. So in that one day, we got up at 6am to get ready and got out of the house at 7.30am just so that we could cram all the outdoor attractions on that day. And guess what? It didn’t rain for the rest of the days that we were there. Another suay incident was that I almost lost my entire backpack. It was my first ever time experiencing something so scary like this but thank goodness I realised just in time before that asshole got away with my backpack. All things aside, I really like the city and the food!

Technically, I am supposed to be in Manchester right now until my parents come over in July for my sister’s graduation but I decided to buy a really last minute ticket to come home because I didn’t want to rot in my room doing nothing. I traveled more than 24 hours just to get to Segamat, my dad’s hometown, to celebrate my grandmother’s 90th birthday. The flight was horrible because there was a kid sitting right behind me and he was kicking nonstop and I had to wait at the airport for about two and a half hours for my parents to arrive with barely any sleep. We set off to Segamat immediately after and the journey was about 3 and a half hours? Not quite sure but I know for a fact that I was dead tired by the time I arrived. Nevertheless, still grateful that I was able to come home as well as celebrate my grandmother’s birthday.


Summer days are almost over with only about 3 weeks to go including a family trip to Poland and Czech Republic. After that, it’s going to be all work until my final year of university starts. This is going to be my first ever job and I really hope everything goes well.
