Being Giddy


An impromptu planning is really my style but somehow my parents can't tolerate that really well. Luckily, they still allow me to go travelling alone.

These pictures were taken last Sunday during Sab's open house. The plan was decided the night before. Random.

As I didn't prepare much, Farah asked me to wear her kebaya. Luckily, I could fit in and I was wearing sneaker but Farah said,  "Buruk baju aku nanti." which means inappropiate to wear with her kebaya, so Syi lent me her heels, still I was lucky since we are wearing the same size.

I was glad, I managed to meet one part of my PASUM's family and I wish I can join The Jaggers for the sleepover tonight.

What is my name?



That is my full name. 

People tend to spell and pronounce my name wrongly, i.e; SYA-FA-RI-NA, SA-FA-RI-NA, SYA-FI-NA

So, I am comfortable in introducing myself as Fina because it is easier for them to pronounce and remember. 

Hi! My name is Fina! Nice to meet you.

Strangers do not know my name. Obvious fact.

Stranger: I might know your name but you do not know mine, vice versa or we don't even know each others

Acquaintances usually call me Syarafina.

Acquaintance: We might meet in an event, camp, class, school, university or any random places where we know each others' names but not the our life history.

Friends call me Fina.

Friend: You know a bit about me, and I know a bit about you. We can go hang out comfortably without any awkward moment. 

Good friends call me Finn.

Good Friend: You are the person, who I can comfortably go crash your place and sleep over! The person who I can eat what you are eating without asking. The person who I can share about what I feel. 

Best friends call me Bitch and sometime Sayang. Ahah!

Best friend: Hi bitch! Hi sayang! Kiss there kiss here! Hug there hug here! Mmuaahhh! Someone that I feel comfortable to do weird things with. My pom pom girl! Someone that I can share anything. I am actually a secretive person. 

Old friends call me depends on what status they are before this.

Old friend: Someone that I barely contact nowadays but I do appreciate them as part of my life. The thing that I am afraid everytime I go to a mini-gathering or reunion is the awkward moment that may appear. Since we do not meet often, and we somehow lost contact or don't keep the connection ongoing so there might be some problems arise during the conversation.

Internet friends call me by my user name, it can be Syarafina Sabri or Afina Sabri.

Internet friend: Blogger that comes here since long ago, and then we become friends. People that share mutual friends with me, although we never meet in the real life. Someone that has interest in my personality that I portray through my social networks or any random person that I know via Internet.

So... Hi there!

Facebook Friends


Dear Facebook Friends,

I think there are lots of you that I don't know in person. We might be acquaintances or maybe  real strangers that we have never met before, just saying hi or have the same thought on a particular thing, or some familiar faces from camps, or maybe we always bump to each other but never talk. 

I didn't know what have made me to approve you? Maybe you have some quality that attract me or some special power that make me want to stalk you. I remind you, I am a professional stalker.

I didn't approve strangers, unless we have more than hundreds mutual friends, you went to the same school with me (this is not applied to university and college) or you have the quality or super power and sometime although you have all of these criteria I still didn't approve you. It depends on my mood. I just don't want my Facebook friends to exceed one thousand. I need to save some space for my future students because from my own experience, Facebook is the easiest way to contact my teachers.

So, this is a special post for you dear Facebook friends:

Happy Belated Birthday!

Happy Birthday!

Happy Advanced Birthday!
