Bye Autumn Term

Autumn term has come to an end. We have three weeks off before spring term starts for uni. Few days back, pepole have been packing stuffs, dragging their lauggages on the street, one after one they went. Many home students had gone back home, happy for them~Indeed home is always the most secure and best place to be. ~Home~ reminds me this:

Home is where your memories are,
its where your secrets are kept.
Home is where you're happiest,
yet home is where you've wept.
Home is where your parents live,
it's where you're raised.
Home is where you've been scolded most,
yet home is where you're praised.
Home is where you make it,
it's when you believe the myth.
That home is when you're happy,
just to love the ones you're with.

Wherever I go, these words serve me when I miss HOME^^

Three weeks holidays ~I'm going to make mine to the fullest. Of course, home is the best but I'd prefer to back for longer period during summer holidays. First week, Joy-my sister and I will be in London to meet two of our aussie cousins over Christmas. We are excited about it, really...And for the following weeks, still not sure yet how would it be.
Basically, I'll need to finish up some left out course work, doesn't look much but its actually quite a lot to do. I might as well do more reading for the course, hopefully I do~
Hmm~ have a week of break then I'll think about it again.
Weary brain, weary eyes, physically and mentally tired for the busy week. [But at least, thank God I have a helpful lecturer to lend me a hand anytime.] Anyway, I need a rest and should be sleeping now, waking for shopping tommorow. Goodnight =)

We Only Part To Meet Again

A farewell party was organized last night for my two flat mates [Teresa & Joanne] whom are flying back to Hong Kong soon. We got some other Malaysian from the other flats to join as well. The larger group we are, the more fun we have. I decided not to let both the Hong Kongese cook. Let us cook them nice food. I found that it is not an easy task to do so. I started cooking from 6-8pm, I was exhausted after cooking as it was a long day for me in the uni. It was a good night though.

Food was not all. Of course we never forget about photoshoting session. haha!

When tha party was half way on,
I distributed christmas cards that I prepared for everyone.
I dropped words from the bottom of my heart in it.
So, all cards they had have different contents.
Most if them opened right after they received.
I happy to see them reading the card with smiling faces.
Teresa opened hers too, she read it.
She couldn't held it, she burst out,
made me couldn't held my tears too.

After a while, she was alright. I'm sure i'll miss them much, will miss Teresa jumping unto my back whenever she hugs me, and also Joanna's 'trumpet' voice. I will miss seeing them around, eating with them, chit chatting in the room, having fun together, do homework together ,etc... We enjoyed being together and I believe this will not be the last time we see each other. These gurls will bever be fogotten, they are lovely people that left beautiful footprints in my life.

Tune Out In Class

Today's lecture was the last one for the term, all I wanted was to attend and get all work submitted. How I wish I were in Harbour Island, had a quite laze in the hammock after submission. whoo~ Unfortunately, imagination doesn't come true.
Well, let's face the realistic then. I struggled to get up from bed, then got myself prepared and head to the uni. The class was quiet when i opened the door as the lecture was already on.
My bad, I was late for 10minutes. I grabbed myself a chair and sat on the last row.
Not many mates turn up though. As i know, some had dropped the course;
some went back hometown;
and some would prefer to tuck in their bed instead,
to not get into the rain in this early morning i guess.

When the lecture was on, everyone was concentrating whilst there were few were whispering, sitting impatiently, laze indolently unto the chair. Meanwhile, I noticed her. A course mate of mine, whom is about my mom's age, married and has children. Friendly is a word that i can use on her, indeed she smiles and talks to me whenever we meet. She was at the corner of the third row today, which is just three rows before mine. She was in pink top. Such a soothing colour which translates relaxation and ease of mind. However, she was frowning, with her fist on her cheek, crossed legs, staring at the chair in front of her, looking restless, wasn' t very much focus on the lecture. Seems she got stressed up with something. She grabbed my attention. I started wondering and curious about what is circling in her mind.

My thoughts were : Is she encountering problems of
[1] Family? - as a housewife
[2] 5 children - as a mom
[3] Uni's work? / Submission dues? - as a student
[4] Manage both equally? - at once
[5] Physically exhausted? - for all

I have no clue about it. Well, it might not be what i thought or she wasn't at all thinking anything. It's all out of my curiosity. If she did, I feel sorry and hope everything turns right for her ^^

Apple Store In Paris

Located in the Carrousel du Louvre, Apple’s first store in Paris was inaugurated after much anticipation. Mac enthusiasts waited days in advance to get a glimpse of their favorite brand opening close to them. Blame it on the products inside or the chic interiors, the buzz this store generated surpassed other store openings from around the world. Much like its products, Apple’s exquisite design taste shows through in its stores too.

The photographer, Roy Zipstein who has been with Apple for the last five years, photographed Apple stores from around the world. If the country has anything to do with this, we don’t know, but he says his most memorable Apple store shoot till date has been in Paris. Awesome!

I'm Finally In! ^^

Finally...I'm in! I intended to start a blog but somehow didn't get it done until now.
Some people are please with this I'm sure as I was persuaded ceaselessly to create an account to write mine. Hopefully I really do make this a point to not update it only once a year...haha!
Its my interests to read the others' blog. And now is my turn to present my own =) What a fresher!
By the way, I'm Jane, a common name but I'm definitely unique in my way, you'll find out! =D
HopeInHIm is the nick that i always put with my name in order to remind myself that I always have hope in HIM, my God. No doubt, I'm a christian ^^
And why "Just As Nothing Else"? Was thinking of phrases or words that related to me but had no idea. Somehow a thought just struck off to have J.A.N.E, hence "Just As Nothing Else", might not make sense though :p
