Few last days in Nizhny Novgorod

Dr. Siti Hajar M.D. (NNSMA)
dan salam sejahtera...
If you guys have been following my blog as before, I did wrote few posts regarding how I spent my last few days in Nizhny. I want to make it as memorable as possible. This is the place I grew up. From a teenager to a woman. Literally I mean. From 18 years old till 24 years old. This is my story...
Nizhny Novgorod. A city in Russia located about 500 km north-east from Moscow. A city used to be called Gorky - the name of the famous poet and writer, Maksim Gorky. A city I used to live. A city I whereby I started to learn about life. Being strong is a criteria that we need to build in order to live in Russia. The weather. The people. The perceptions. The truth and lies. It what make me who I am today. 
So, this was how I spent my last three days in Nizhny before going back for good. It was on 12th July 2015. There was a photography session held by Bashir and Ameerul. Luckily for us, they worked as a professional photographer. Trying to make it perfect with whatever we had. Look at the background of the picture below! Hehe. Now you understand what I mean.

Taraaaa. Laksa sarawak riched with flavours!
At the same day, my overly attached groupmates spending the last 'makan-makan' for our group. It was Laksa Sarawak day! Since Jona, Karen and I had so much paste that we needed to finish before going back, we made the laksa full with flavours. Most of us were going back in few days time. So, there's a lot of chicken, prawn, mee hun to eat. Yummy!
The next day, I have only 24 hours left before my flight. So, what should I do? Spending time at the shopping mall won't make it interesting as there'll be a lot more shopping mall in Malaysia. I decided to take my last walk through The Walking Road - Balshaya Pakrovskaya with Farahin. We walked together, snapping pictures, enjoying the view and walk back home. But I did dropped by the post office to buy a parcel box to post back home. 
Altogether, I posted around 6 or 7 of 10 kg parcels back home. When it reached home, I dont even know where to put all my stuffs! What am I suppose to do? All of them have sentimental value to me. But no worries fellow friends, all of them already kept safe in my closet today. Hooray!
Last picture at The Walking Street. Look, there's a van behind me!
Parcels to be send home. Hey, not all of these were mine! It's Shahan and Amir's too.
Apart from that, my roomate and I wanted to eat the Squid Ink Spagetti and cheesecake for the last time at Biblioteka (The Library Restaurant). Suddenly my lecturer, Anton Vladimirovic gave me a called. If you remember, I did met him in my last post. He was in town and he wanted to meet me for dinner after he completed the surgery for the chief of surgeon big toes. He is a trauma surgeon. 
So, we decided to meet there, at biblioteka. Turned out, there's a lot of my batchmates were going there too to enjoy 'buka puasa' together. So, we ate till the restaurant was closed and he sent me and Aini back home. He is a great surgeon though.
Meet my lecturer, Anton.
The strong yet kind makcik guard for our hostel.
The next day, it was 14th July 2015. My flight from Nizhny to Moscow was early in the morning. Around 7 am, so I needed to be there much earlier. I decided to take a taxi at 5 am. Lucky for me, I had a very nice makcik guard to open the hostel door early in the morning. Yup. There are many women guards in Russia. It shows that women are strong as well as men. 
Alhamdulillah. I have a very great friends who wanted to send me off down at the hostel, and to the airport. Thank you all for waking up just to send me off. Really appreaciated all the efforts you guys made for me. A special thanks to Adila, Farahin, and Karen for sending me off at the airport. It was sweet of you girlfriends! Miss you girls already.
