Off to Bray

As usual, this post is bout les activities last weekend. And as weekend is arriving, I must post bout this place first as am planning to off again, to another place, for another adventures. Yippiesss. So, last weekend, along with mes amis from INTEC, we all off to this so-called place, Bray. Located just 35minutes away from UCD, it was indeed a very astonishing and beautiful place to be visited. They deserved to be visited. 

It's a good sunny day for a walk.
Off to Bray Beach.
Along the beach side.
Yet I said, it was a sunny but chilled-windy day.
Giving this so-popular stall a try. The freshly cut chips, yummy. They said, it was the best in Bray.
Enjoying the chips with the scenic view of the widely-open ocean.
Railway along the sea, just lie a fantasy.
Hiking. Yup, ireland indeed have lots of mountain to be climbed and am surely gonna win as much mountain as I can.
To the peak I am.
Sun setting on top of the mountain.
Some more scene.
And sayonara day-light and welcome nite.
Spot the man there, he is swimming at dawn in this icy-cold water. Me surely gonna try this sooner.
Beautiful sky.
Night view along the Bray Beach.
Indeed, a petit plan here was totally worthy and it was an amazing moment. Plus, me get to know people here, two Irish nurses and a couple from Brazil. Basically human are all good people that always trying to connect one another and traveling surely one of the best way to be connected.

Picnicking at Howth, Ireland

Before the moment getting worse with all the selfie and cam-whore, let just take a few deep breath and say "Subhanallah" to this stunning scenery. A piece/s here and there bout Howth. Basically it was just a seaside suburb of Dublin, picnicking, hiking, walking, breathing and looking for a stunning view were what you can do here. Plus, you can also get sweat here even in the cold continuous-blowing wind. LOL. You can either access this place by bus or train.

So, let back off from the formality and back to the "whoring" part. Being here for like 2-3 hours surely short. Those sharp plant, edging rock and cliff will make you forget bout everything. Hahahah, been in Ireland for a week aldy make me like writing an essay. (Macam melayu tak penah makan belacan)

Arriving team.
Me just love cam-whoring.
The edge from afar.
The berries.
Just beautifoooooool
Group photo.
After straining so much muscle in this chilled weather, your stomach surely will get empty. Lapar yop. Memang perut rase berangin nak terkentut aje. Ha3x. So, once arrive at the seashore I said, we all sat down and eat, eat and keep eating on what is available. Owh, previously otw here we stopped b at this Pakistani or Indiani am not sure to grab some kebab and pizzas to be brought here. (iA will be posted in next entry)

Enjoing le Pizzas, big one for sure.
Extremely large and mouthwatering Kebab.
Meaty dish for sure.
Straightly after eating, few of us immediately and excitedly took out our shoes and dimmed our feet into the ocean of iced water. Cold, freeze, chilling, like no words that is suitable enough to describe the feeling during that instant.

Bare foot in the water at this cold weather. Amazing.
Me and the open ocean and sky.
The seaside.
More photo
The eagle view of the shore.
And finally, off up we go.
Then we all took off back to the city and UCD indeed. The fatigues was surely paid by those views and iA, if Allah will, me will be back here one day. Before off back to UCD, we grabbed dinner at the city, at Madina, an arabic food store which serve amazing delicacies.

Journey to University College Dublin, Ireland

Really, it was like a dream come true. I think it was since my secondary school I dream and keep dreaming of pursuing my study abroad but I never thought of it to be true. Really, journey to achieve my ambition is really a tough way indeed. Instead of going to Middle East, I choose not to because I said to myself, I wanna go to the European. Seeing the other side of the world. Besides there are lots of Malaysian aldy back in Middle East. So, I sit for A-Level examination and just Allah know how I am initially regretting of my choice cause A-Level is damn hard. But with Allah will, I unexpectedly pass the exam, with flying colour. And me is a happy person.

So, here am I, on a long journey to my dream. From KLIA to Heathrow London Airport and to Dublin Airport. Finally arriving to my home here at UCD, Ireland.

Me, Ayap and Faqeh. Sending me off. Thanks buddies.
Photo-bombing at the parking lot. Miss you all aldy.
Igopians. **Ignore the eyes**
Members from INTEC.
Off to my dream.
 Boarding an airplane may be excited. Nahhhh, that was a short thought. After 2 hours trap in the small petite seat, then you will realize that you will wish that you would not want to board an aeroplane that often. Cramping here and there. Unsatisfied toilet and many many more. But still, with Malaysia Airlines, the food prepared for us was at the top notch.

Breakfast. Omelette bla bla. Nasi Lemak is preferrable.
Thank god TV with lots of interesting movie can be watch from your seat.
Sky view of London.
Transit to Dublin.
My very first scene of Ireland.
And more.
Keep coming, more.
Until lastl, me is finally arriving at my campus and indeed my apartment. Marville Residence, House 6, Apartment 3, Room 3.

My house is the one on first floor.
Living room.
Outside view.
My almari.
My room.
The statue.
More residences.
The view at dawn from outside my window.
So, there is time when a day can really make you feel like a different person. Jumping into a shower, taking bath with a pouring icy-cold water, sleeping while wearing sweater and covering yourselves with a thick duvey and even eating maggie using a paper clip. But really, this all things gonna make you grow faster and be more matured.
