Day 10

I have adjourned this blog for almost a weeks. What a lazy me right? Actually, we are all quite busy this week because our class have been started. Therefore, the network here is not too good for me to update this blog. Going to academic block is such a thousand miles for me. So i decided to update this blog once a week. Can I?

Since we had got into our classroom, I had met my very nice, exuberant, delighted, beautiful English lecturer. Her name is Madam Alia if I am not mistaken. Unfortunately, I don't have her photo yet and I can't post it right now. She's kinda a mother-like lecturer and I adore her because of her advice which give me some sort of spirit, encouragement for me to improve and doing well in my 10 months here at KKTM Ledang.

So, here are my adjourned words for this week. 20 words in total.
