Victory! Victory!

Nope... I haven't got my result. So, its not victory for passing with flying colours. But victory for solving this!

I got it. Alhamdulillah. This is the first time I got it. Thank you for all ure comments when I was frustrated doing it (y'all kept me going). Yeah, there's a vdio in you tube that i can recommend. Click here to view. Some of the videos re so fast that its kinda impossible to catch up. Especially when u're considered as beginners. Actually I got this Rubik's cube since I was in UK. For 50p. And the colours are'nt made of stickers, making it easier to maintain the beauty of the cube.

I got this more than 10 years, and now, I solved it. Pretty embarassing. Does it have to take that long? Well, I dont even bother playing with it (that shows why it's in the kitchen on top of microwave playing the role of ornament, not a toy or game or puzzle). Well, I dont know, rubik's cube is that popular and interesting. I dunt even realised adults play this game until I looked up in Anas's blog, where he wrote that he bought 4x4 cube, And last night, I just found out that this cube exists long time ago; 1974.

I asked my friend to buy me a rubik's cube with a manua (so, I can solve it)l. Then he suggested me to find the way to solve in internet. I was like, what! Frankly, I dunt think it's a good idea at that moment. Though I thought that way, I still try to get it in internet. And the instructions made me confused. I guess, I didnt go to the right channel, and at last I found a clear tutorial for this.

I slept at 3am doing this last night. And it was 70% solved. Then I misdoing it, and it all scrambled again. So, I scrambled it as much as I can twist and turn it (is that a way to express frustration?). Then, start it all over. Till I got it. I cant deny that there's a huge feeling of satisfaction when it's solved (especially when ure getting it for the first time).

Moral: Dont give up if u do something.

p/s: wondering about 4x4 cube. Or is that too much, for now??
