Fraternity House

Welcome to 106 B 
"Beta Supra Beta"

This is the "logo" (vandalism act) of our Frat House (our apartment in IPG KBA) which we rent for RM 80 per month for each student. Alhamdulillah, the rate is so very cheap because it is not easy to find a really affordable place to stay in the middle of Kuala Lumpur right? Even though the condition of the hostel is quite bad for some students, I am so thankful that we do not have to rent houses outside.

See! Next to our old apartment is a truly stylish and expensive condominium called Zehn Bukit Pantai. I heard rumors that Datin Paduka Umie Aida lives on top of this building, as her husband bought the penthouse. Our hostel/apartment is situated beside our college compound at Jalan Pantai Baharu, Lembah Pantai Kuala Lumpur. It is located near Menara TM, Stadium Hoki Kuala Lumpur, Stesen LRT Kerinchi, Stesen LRT Universiti, Universiti Malaya and IPG Kampus Bahasa Melayu.

There will be a small bazaar at Menara Telekom Malaysia every Friday afternoon which sells cheap chocolates, books, scarfs, and other items. My roommate, who happens to be a chocolate-maniac loves to visit the place while I just like to walk around that area. 

IPG Kampus Bahasa Antarabangsa.

The view of the residential college taken from Jalan Bukit Pantai, Bangsar. Our college has a really long history that started even before independence. It used to be a matriculation college for Universiti Islam Antarabangsa Malaysia, Universiti Malaya and finally IPG KBA. 

Mid Valley Megamall.

It is located only 15 minutes of walking distance from my college or 10 minutes if you take a cab (minus the traffic jam at Federal Higway) to go there. For most IPBARIANS, Mid Valley is the place to do our groceries because there is no "kedai runcit" around our college believe it or not!

I really like my college since it is located in the middle of everywhere. I can take the LRT to KL Sentral or KLCC easily or hop into the taxi and stray to One Utama or The Curve on weekends. That explains why I managed to join various events, thanks to the seriously affordable public transportation.

I do not need to walk far away to the main road to get my lunch and dinner too because there is an illegal restaurant near the entrance. I believe that the restaurant is illegal as the owner does not display any license or permit at his stall but he cooks really tantalizing food at a very affordable price. 

This college also provides various facilities such as a barren football field, gymnasium, tennis court, volleyball court, library and other basic facilities for a teaching institute. 

At the gymnasium(main "baling selipar") after exam. I know that these facilities are no longer in good condition but at least they are still usable right?

This is my spacious room at 106 B BSB! There are 5 rooms at each apartment unit and we stayed at the topmost level which I called The Penthouse. 

This is my side of the room, neat and tidy right? There will be 14 students in each apartment that occupy those rooms, with 5 toilets, a pantry, living room and two balconies! 

We used to have our own rice cooker and basic kitchen utensils here plus we cooked! Cooking is actually prohibited but we keep our secrets and put the stuff in the room. 

Our living room, with the "ampaian" and a place for all of us to hang out. We watch movies on weekends and borrow LCD projector from our seniors to have a clearer view. This is the place where we "solat berjemaah", eat together and have fun. 

Oh, I seriously miss my life in Kuala Lumpur. You know what I miss so much about KL and my crazy lifestyles? I used to stay in the LRT for almost two hours(from LRT Kerinchi-LRT Terminal Putra-LRT Kelana Jaya-LRT KLCC) just to make sure I finish reading my Psikologi Pendidikan notes, skinny jeans hunting at Pavilion KL, blogger's events and parties. 

I miss my Frat House, Kuala Lumpur and my friends there. Can we have a blogger gathering in February later? Would anybody be interested in joining the gathering? I can plan it though, so no worries people.
