Hiking

I have only go hiking after I came to UNIMAS.  I have never hiked an mountain before this.I have hiked Mount Santubong 3 times and Mount Gading once. My friends and I have reached the top of Mount Santubong all the three times but did not reach the top of Mount Gading eventhough it is shorter than Santubong. This is because we went to Mount Gading for its waterfall not for hiking so we just spend our time there by swimming and not hiking. Compare to Mount Santubong, Mount Gading is really easy and more relax to hike.

I went for hiking each time with different friends except for few friends of mine who likes to hike each time we go. Each time I go hiking, I will feel like i gain a new experience. Maybe it’s because I always go with different people. I would never forget my first time experience of hiking the mount santubong where I did not bring any water and my friends also did not bring sufficient water for themselves. On the way down, I could not even taste the food that I put in my mouth because I don’t even have saliva any more. That’s why we bring extra water for the second and third time we went hiking. At the end of the first time I went hiking, I say to my friends that I would never go hiking in my life again. And then what you know? I went hiking again to the same place for the second and third time and there is a possibility for the fourth time. 

On the second time we went hiking, my friend ask me whether want to go hiking or not end of the year. I told her that I would not say that I will join because if I did, I will surely come again the next month which is before the scheduled time since before this I told people that I would never come again but I did come again the next year. Even when I did not say that I will join, I went hiking for the third time within the same year. Most probably I will go again the next year if everything goes to the plan that my friend make. I wonder who will go with us at that time.

We all are different

All of us are different and unique, that is what makes us special. There are no people who are same with other people. Even twins are different among each other. Each of us for sure have some characteristic that separates us from other people and make us special. Even if we didn’t realize it, surely people around us would have. If all of us look the same and act same, we will be no different from mere robots. Every people that we see will make us feel like looking at the mirror. 

Some of us are kind, nice, polite or hardworking but there are also some who are rude, lazy or annoying. But this is what make us ourself. If you want to meet someone that is just the same with you, just look at the mirror because no one can be more similar to you than that. When there are many different types of people together, life would be more interesting and fun. Life is short, so let’s enjoy it together

A secret is a secret

Everyone have secrets which can be small or big. Some people will share their secret with the people they truly trust and some would not even tell a soul. Secret is a matter or information that you don’t want to leak out to anyone and want it to be hidden. All of us surely don’t want to leak out our own secret right... So why do we leak out the secret that people tell us? 

To be honest, I do like to hear people tell me about their own and my friend’s secret, this shows how much they trust me but at the same time I would think that can I trust them with my secrets? They are telling me other people’s secret so surely they can tell other people about my secrets. Will they like it if other people tell their secret to other people? This is why I don’t tell people the secret that I know about other people, because I don’t like people tell my secret to other people as well. 

It would be alright if they tell their friend’s secret to a a person who wouldn’t tell anyone but if it reaches the ears of a busybody or someone who could not keep secret… what could happen? It is hard to find people who are willing to keep only the secrets to themselves only. Sometimes, eventhough we don’t want to leak the secret, but sometimes it will come out of our mouth accidentally, well… we are humans after all so we can do mistake sometimes so it is forgivable. But if these mistakes happen too occasionally, can it be called accident? 

Some of the secrets only affect the owner of the secret but sometimes it could also affect other people. When it involves other people, it would cause a greater damage if it ever leaks out. How much chaos can be caused if all the secrets were to leak out. Think about it…

Memories

In this few years, we have gone through a lot together. Some of us fight each other but it didn’t last long. Which friends never fight between each other? We might have different opinion and thinking but we can still be friends. When we did something together, we will forget our fight, problem and differences. We have made many unforgettable memories in our university life, and I’m sure most of us will cherish and remember this for a long time. From the 1st year when I meet all my university friends till now, every moment has become priceless. I still remember the time that we spend together with our friends.










Surely we will make more new memories in the future but I don’t know whether it will be better than the memories we have already made. I don’t know about others but surely I would not forget all the times we have spend together because the memories are really important for me.

KAYAK

What activity I miss now is kayak. We couldn’t go kayak anymore because only the members of that club are allowed to kayak. How disappointing is this…!? Me and my friends have gone kayak last year few times and we all are eager to go kayak again.


Some of them never kayak and ask us to invite them when can go kayak. Hopefully they will allow us to go kayak again next semester. The times when I go kayak with my friends are still fresh in my mind. The first time I go kayak, the first time I make people fall into the lake (sorry ye.. hehe..), the first time I invite people to do something together and make them wet, the time when I invite people to go kayak but did not happen because the equipments were locked, the time when we get mudded when want to carry the kayak and also the time when we joined kayak race for faculty days.

This all are priceless memories for me. It can become very tiring or it could be very relaxing. Some of us prefer to race among ourself and chase each other and also sometimes we prefer to just relax in the middle of the lake and have a chat. I still remember my friends and I waited for the bridge to be finished so that they will allow us to kayak. Upon the completion of the bridge, we did kayak for few times, but it did not last long because of the new rule where it is only for the members. Will these precious time will come back..?

Time is passing by

2 and a half year have passed by and leaving us with only half more years. Am I the only one that realizes these or it is just that no one cares about this matter? What am I talking about? All my coursemates surely knows that I am talking about our university life. Some of my friends don’t like the university life and I don’t know why.
Maybe it is because they miss their hometown and family. Or it could be that the life here is quite hard for them because of the food, exam and assignments. They say they can’t wait for the university life to over and go back home. Every semester they go back home early and don’t want to enjoy with friends here. As the saying goes ‘no pain no gain’, we have to endure the suffering to get the happiness.
Don’t they realize that after this university life is working life? Do they think it is easy? In my opinion, university life can be made as our best time of life. This is the time we should enjoy, surely not to forget the main purpose to enter university which is to study. But surely study won’t take all of our time in university. I tried to enjoy to the maximum with my friends for most of the things they invite me to join them such going for hiking, swimming, picnic and also go to friend’s house for Hari Raya. Ya, I know all this are small and common things, but this is the things that we will remember and cherish in the future after we are graduated and become old someday. It is no use if we regret in future. It is not like we have the power to go back to time.
After half more years we might not even see each other, so why don’t we all enjoy and cherish the remaining time we are together. Don’t forget some of us are from west and some of us are from east. It’s not like we can drive or walk to other side. We might only able to meet each other accidently someday.
I did thought that maybe someday we can make reunion so that all of us can meet again in the future but would everyone give the support? I have a big doubt that all of them will give support. Some of them might just don’t want and maybe some of them just too busy with their work. Nobody knows what going to happen in the future. Surely someone in other place also has the same or almost similar feeling that I have now for the same issue or maybe for something else and if you do, please share it.
