Before and After....Studying abroad...


I know people always make assumptions about the students studying abroad...
There'll be lots of Frequently Asked Questions and Statements being raised...
  1. I bet you'll get fairer when you come back home..
  2. Do you have rosy cheeks now?
  3. You don't have pimples anymore?
  4. Cakap Melayu ada slang la tu...
  5. Mesti dah pandai masak kan..
  6. I can see that u're getting chubbier!!
  7. Mata dah jadi biru ke blum?
  8. That's all I can think of right now....other questions you can ask directly k...

My answers are as following:
  • I don't think I'm becoming any fairer...ok maybe a bit due to the less exposure to the sun..but there's not much difference, right?
 
Kalau matahari depan muka memang ar dapat gambar iklan fair and lovely yer..
  • Rosy cheeks? Haha.. I wish!!! But sadly no...
  • Erk pimples...I had a terrible time few years ago because of my pimples..I went to do facial treatment but it didn't work as the product wasn't suitable for my skin..So i just let it be...and now my pimples have reduced tremendously..maybe because of the weather and because of me aging...yeah i just hope the pimple scars will be gone soon..
Yeah it was bad huh?

  • Haha...The way I speak? I'm not sure bout this...I think I speak like I used to back then but maybe this time I'll accidentally add few german words to my sentences...howoe...words like ach so, nee, joa, geil, interessant maybe will come out once in a while...
You have to watch this video...This boy has a cute accent...ok i don't speak like that yee...

                            


                           
  • Pandai masak xde la..ok je, still learning...but I've tried recipes that I've never thought I would try to do them myself...Rendang...Mee Kari...Satay and Kuah kacang....just to name a few...I'm not very keen of cooking but I more into baking..I think I've improved a lot in my skill of baking..heee.. 
                                          
Homemade Cheesecake y'all...bangga2...
  • Chubby? The pic above says it all..humma2...muka cam panda dah kan...Pelik makan je naik kat muka..badan still maintain..hoho..Oh I used to look like a druggie...look at the picture below
Hanis found this picture and she wanted to show me how much I've changed..The caption goes like this "Actually I wanted to show you this picture. You were crazy thin! Like a druggy! "

Nabil : Haha...and now?
Hanis : And now, we can only get druggy Nabil in old photos..

Yeay...I just hope my body would be proportionate with my face...kang jadi cam baby balik..kepala besar chomeyl..badan kecik chomeyl gak..humma2..

  • Howoe...mata xde la jadi biru kan...not possible kot..i used to wear sterling grey contact lens...time tu ter-racially confused kejap...skang ni dark brown cukup...
Woh2...mata grey...woh2...
  • There are other changes in me that have become obvious to my friends here...Examples are like my punctuality..I used to be 15 minutes late when I'm picking up someone of meeting up with someone..now it has reduced tremendously...i think being in Germany, where punctuality is really important has made me learn on how to respect other people's time and to be punctual..kalau lambat pon 5 minute kot..heee
  • The way I walk has changed...Now I walk faster than I used to...Germans walk very fast..Sometimes it's hard to catch up with their speed..haha..but im getting used to it...oh one more thing why i have to get used to walking fast is because in Germany the train is always punctual..You have to wait for the train, not otherwise. 5 seconds can make much difference..Sometimes i just hope there's a 5 minutes delay so that i won't have to run...heee..
  • The food I consume..I can adapt to the changes here..Instead of eating rice everyday, i vary my meals with pasta, potatoes, bread and etc...
  • One more thing that has changed would be the way I look at the world.Studying abroad has broaden my way on seeing things.I'm able to interact and work with people from all walks of life, learn their cultures, learn how to adapt with the new environment and still not forgetting my roots and love towards my country... 
So now you know how i've changed or not changed since studying abroad...I just hope that you guys won't expect much from me..howoe...One advice, if you guys get the chance to study abroad, Go Ahead!!! Dare yourself because the whole experience of studying abroad is simply amazing and awesome...Once in a lifetime opportunity...Why throw it away right?

Tschüss und mach's gut!!!

Danke schön for da tips. xsabar nak g italy oct nnt. cuma risau ja xdpt adapt makanan diorg tuh.

*takleh hidup tanpa nasik ng curry!!

Judiene said...

Way to go bro!
I do think that people will have to learn how to cook when they are away from home, regardless of where they are living.
That's just how it works.
You can't go out and eat at restaurant everyday.
Anyway, we have something in common, I think.
I like baking too.
So sad that my mom can't afford another baking tools for me to bring to my house at Puncak Alam.

:)

Nabil Aizat Abdul Rahman said...

to syukcurz:
Oh italy bestnyer...makanan dorung sedap kot...i love italian food..haha..skang ni practice makan italian food kat Malaysia ye..lama ke gi sana?

Yeah cooking skill is very important for students..if not we wont be able to survive..

Nice entry nabil...well memang betul kalau study abroad banyak perubahan..as for me in Egypt,i'm getting tanned coz egypt so hot..!!! tapi bdn makin kurus sikit sbb kat sini xda sapa nk jaga mkn kita...dinner,lunch slalu skip sbb x cukup msa...but one thing in common la between germanian and egyptian,diaorang jalan sangat la laju...and sometimes susah nak adapt dgn budaya kat sini...humma-humma..!~

Dhiya Fariza said...

couldnt agree more. im studying in egypt, i used to hate living in this country because the people are just so plainly ganas and aggressive, but it thought me to be stronger.

one thing in common, they walk pretty fast too here. haha. poor feet. haih i miss malaysia.
