I'm a world record holder!!

Sounds hard to believe, but yeah, I am a world record holder!

For what, you ask? For being a dickhead for 72hours straight or staying up for the last 5 days?

Nah, it wasn't that hard to beat a world record. The only thing that I need was a frying pan, a pancake and lotssssss of people!

The Big Flip- the attempt for the most people flipping a pancake.

The event commences on the 15th of February, which was last Wednesday on 1.30pm and being as pumped up as we always be, me and my friends registered ourselves as early as 12pm in which the official registration starts at half an hour later. There were special guests as well during the event, the vice chancellor of the University of Sheffield, Professor Keith Burnett and Dan Walker, BBC Football Focus presenter.

After being officially registered for taking part of The Big Flip, we got ourselves free foods such as baked potatoes, pancakes, salads, soups and a cup of coffee. As the time approaches the official time for registration, people were gathering up at the edge and the press, reporters and photographers were busy taking photographs and interviewing people.

We got ourselves a free pan and pancake as well prior for taking part of the event and we tried flipping the pancake a few times-

"Susah la bro..asal asyik melekat je pancake kat pan ni..noob lahhh"

So that was when we took some flour and poured on our pancake and;

We flip the pancake LIKE A BOSS.

We were given some instructions by the officials for some rules and regulations and as time starts to tick at 1.30pm, we start flipping the pancake for 30s and wholla- we just beat the world record!!

890 people became new world holder that day, smashing the previous record by a double, which was 405. After flipping the pancakes and all, we walked back to the edge and got ourselves the certificate and some freebies. We took some pictures afterwards and there were some competitions such as pancake eating, how many flips in a minute, pancake masterchef and pancake quiz. Here's a few other pictures and a video of the event.

(LOL photobomber..hahah)

Finally, i've achieved one of my dreams in life, breaking a world record. =P.

Have you beat a world record before? I bet no. Trololololol.

This is pancake. This is world record.

Im not really good in shopping.

Nor a fashionista of some sort.

But when it comes to sales, especially for electronic/technology goods and sports equipment, that is when my spider senses starts to tingle. (Or foods- like that half priced Haagen-Daz and celebration chocolates)

Recently i've bought a new pair of football shoes, a nike tempo (27 pounds- PBD 39.99), a pair of airwalk ski thermal gloves (2.49 pounds- PBD 24.99) and a pair of umbro goal keeper gloves (99 pence- PBD 8.99).

*PBD- Price Before Discount

That's a lot of spending there, and a lot of saving too! In the UK, if there's a sale, then it is a SALE with HUGE SAVINGS and DISCOUNTS. There are constantly a lot of deals in the UK and it's hard to resist on not buying anything. Other than those three items that i've mentioned, other sporting goods that i've bought were a mountain bike and a tennis racquet.

It's fun to enjoy doing things that you really love, and in which for my case, playing sports with friends or just riding my bike along the trails and hills at Sheffield. Most of the time in Malaysia, i usually spend my money on food and beverages; if only there's a mamak stall here in Sheffield, it'll be truly a blessing in disguise.

I really have to start saving now or else i'll end up eating grass.

There's no place like home.

How often do you hear your colleagues, friends or family say that to you? Before this, I anticipated my studies in Sheffield, but after a few months of sleeping, reading, eating in this 1st world country, I would say I pretty much miss home.

Home is the only place where one could enjoy food the most, talk and enjoy time with friends and spending time with your loved ones. There's no denying the fact that wether you like it or not, one will always think about home. I'm not really that sociable or a family kind of person, but deep down inside, I miss that warmth a family could give- and the sweetness of sleeping on your own bed.

Staying at Lawrencefield has opened my eyes on some of the different types of people- religion, ethnicity, emotion and language. Most of my friends here stay at their own houses which they rent and a few of us are staying at the university apartment- which is a hell lot expensive and though the experience wasn't the one that i've expected- nor anticipated, i feel that it was necessary for me to try mingle and improve myself with other people and blending in; without forgetting my purposes of studying here and being my own self.

People change when they come into a new environment, and most of them tend to do so- wether changing to good or bad. I change a lot of my lifestyle when I arrived in Sheffield and I try my best to be friendly, helpful and comforting and in university, one should always remember that you should know how to keep your ass intact- or simply, be independent.

"Lagi-lagilah kat overseas, parents sikda, so pande-pandelah jaga dirik pun, nak?"

There are so many things to explore, yet, there are so little time. I guess being away from home gradually affects someone's mood and emotion to a certain extent that it could severely affect their surroundings and relationships.

I guess this was one the effects of taking a shower in the middle of the night. Hmm.

I wish I can drink Milo Peng right now..='(

Nothing feels like indulging one of the most delicious ice cream on a Saturday night while listening to your favourite songs.

Bought it for half price, which was 2 pounds from Tesco the other day and somehow eating this ice cream at this kind of hour, makes me feel so...incredibly contempt to myself. Like every spoon that comes in contact with my lips, mouth and tongue- the taste explodes and your brain receptor signals your "nyaman" feeling straight away.

In Malaysia, I never get to enjoy this kind of ice cream too often as they're very expensively priced and tonight I have this whole bucket all by myself and believe me- it's sooooo fucking yummy.

Haagen-Dazs over Walls, Mat Kool and PaddlePop any day.

This is Haagen-Dazs. This is Sweet and Delicious.

Was shopping at Primark the other day and found this pair of sock being displayed.

Cute, ain't it? Say hello to Spongebob----oh, wait.

>>>FOR MEN<<<




I have nothing against Spongebob and I love that yellow sponge, but hey, don't you guys think labelling a pair of Spongebob's sock as Men's sounds a bit far too much?

Sheffield 2.0

What a week it has been.

First, exams are finally over and i highly doubt that i could get 1st class due to one of our subjects being technically hard when the lecturer doesn't include any of the formula's.

Second, enjoyed a fucking good time with my friends watching movie (Chronicle- i'd give it a 4/5) and ice skating at Ice Sheffield.

And finally, it's snowing!!

On Saturday morning, the 4th of February, it was as any other Saturday, with football and my usual routine of doing laundry afterwards. It came to my surprise that on the afternoon snow was finally pouring down in Sheffield!

Me and my friends were sooo excited and by the time it reached evening, snow was covering all around our apartment and the whole Endcliffe! Envious and pumped up I may be, I wore all my winter gears and played with snow!!

The first time when I step on snow I was like...

"Wtf is feels soooo squishy on my feet!"

And when I was walking down..I slipped. It was that slippery.

Almost everybody in Endcliffe went out from their apartment and played with the snow. There were sledges, snowboards and even catapults on that Saturday evening. Me and my friends built ourselves some snowmans and played snowball fights with our neighbours. It was good fun and everyone enjoyed it. Sadly today there were no snows though. Hopefully the roads are fine tomorrow because tomorrow would be the day when my semester 2 starts.

Here's some more pictures of the snow in Endcliffe-

Playing with snow is soooo much fun!! It feels like celebrating Hari Raya all over again..haha.

In all unrelated topic, I should really cut my's really getting on my nerves.

Enjoy your week everyone! Can't believe its semester 2 already.

Sigh, how time flies.
