Further Steps Towards The Journey

Assalamualaikum hee
Apologise in advance cuz' it took me sooooo long to confer on some fresh and new updates !
Well *to whoever I kept you waiting. 

*James Morrison's You Give Me Something echoing in the air ~* 

First of all, I made to it Birmingham. I mean, I have myself stepped on this ground of so called West Midlands ! My friends and I arrived Birm (birmingham for short) 4 days ago and we are now staying at our senior's house. We'll get moving to our house on mid Sept, hopefully. So in the meantime I am hoping that my friends and I won't cause any trouble to our good Samaritans here. 

The first day we arrived, it was 3pm UK time and everyone was really worn out. A taxi booked by Farah's dad fetched us at the airport and much to our expectation (my expectation actually) the driver was so friendly. He's a Pakistani, lived here like 8 years. And he took ACCA previously :'D but didn't make it for some papers. So I asked him, what is he doing now, he replied, "As you see right now." Okay that was a friendly conversation I first have with the people here. And there was some conversation between us and I (I assume, my friends too) didn't get what was he trying to say, then he asked " you understand ?" And unexpectedly I answered "Hmm not really." Then he laughed so hard and said he had a friend who reacted like me. He said that we'll get used with everything here in UK perhaps in communication too X'D sooner. 

*Sara Bareilles' Get Over You now playing ~*

Yeahh I am not really worried of improving my communicating skills cuz', ... well I have to so, there's nothing to be worried of if it is an obligatory. In addition, people here are lovely and helpful. My landlord is one good example. He is in the late 30's I guess, married to a Korean and has a cute and playful 4-year-old son ! The family are so lovely, I love his wife ~ He likes Malaysians so much that he helped my friends and I in settling down some things. Those include accommodation, guides to get to nearby supermarket and soon-to-be our house, bank's letter (proof of address), and some further complications hehe. We are deeply truly grateful to have him as our landlord, he is a thoughtful and responsible person. 

Oh ya we visited a Malaysian family who is now the tenant of soon-to-be our house. Adam and his wife are living with their 3-4 months old baby Qeyl Addin (he's such a cutie !). Well there were some complications between us and the landlord, I will tell why. 

We have completed our registration at the college 3 days ago. We went to the city and omgggg I shopped like crazy ! Having said that, I kept reminding myself to go slow on this. Overspending money could really be a serious disease if there was no further treatments (ehem). We'll go to the city again tomorrow to meet another senior, he'll guide us how to get to BPP in shorter time and maybe we can settle the railcard and travel card and stuffs within tomorrow hopefully. 

I definitely have more stories but need to spare for few more posts soon ! Haha 

Until then. Da da !

p/s: don't stop praying for me and my beloved ones, friends ! Amin !
