a place called egypt

everyone is leaving
old friend
myspace friend
ym friend
best friend
and even me
one thing that we have in common,
all of us are going to the same place,
a place called egypt

when i was young, and i heard that someone's going there i went
' cheh mesir?'lol
like what people always say ' what goes around comes around'
i was chosen to go there.

the very first time i arrived in egypt, i was so damn frustrated
my first impression was not good
haha well no one ever told me about that country
but it was better than what i imagined
i expected the uni to be in the middle of the dessert, and the temperature will be damn high
but it was cold and dusty and so, dull?
the very first thing i heard was drivers honking non stop
i was trying to sleep so i was like
"shut the hell up you bloody sons of bitches"
yes, i was emotional, young and immature.
well good reasons,
that was the very first time i had no friends around,
that was the very first time i live far away from home,
that was the very first time i was alone, with not a single person i know
i've never lived in hostel, boarding school etc
everything i did with my friends, so when i was alone, i went a little bit insane. hhaha

the next few months were dull and frustrating and not interesting at all.
there was one time a senior asked me

" what do you find interesting here"
and i replied ,

" er nothing?"

" ooh then, what do you dislike?"

" ooh A LOT. dirty places, the people, the noise and everything. "

but as time passes by, i learned a lot
about the people, the culture, lifestyle, and even the county
and i started to fall in love with it
it's just unbelievable
no matter how dusty, how noisy, how dirty, how loud how dull or how annoying the people are
i accepted every single thing by heart
for me egypt is a special country
it was the country where prophets were borned,
and many many islamic histories happened there
i even went to some places
where the prophet Musa actually climbed a mountain to see Allah,
where 40 prophets gather around for a meeting
it's just amazing and unbelievable you know
standing near the spot they stood
and things you wanted, if you keep praying and asking by heart, will be granted insyaAllah
i tried a few times bfore and it worked
amazing, right?

and just when i was starting to get along with everyone, i was asked to go back to Malaysia for mara's scholarship
it was again, frustrating
i had to leave all my friends behind,
but hey, it doesn;t matter because i'm coming back
with a lot of new friends.
different state but still the same country
i'm going to miss zagazig
cause heyy, where on earth can you ever find a big house, 2 rooms, 2 living rooms and a large, large sutuh outside for only 450 geneh per month= about rm300???

haha anyway, once again, here i come, EGYPT!
