Fast Forward

Here comes that time again. Where I sit down, gather all my thoughts and reminisce about the year hat had passed. So now, it's time to think back on the roller coaster ride of 2009.

I probably will repeat what I wrote in the 2008 post, proving how I failed to improve myself and keep whatever promise I made.

The year started with me knowing I got into 4S2. Well, when I saw the name list I was like “O.O! God who are these people?!” Apart from a few closer friends, it felt like I was cast off into foreign land. The awkward first day, the empty seat. Then. Yu Li and Hui Li sat moved behind me and I sat next to E-Jia…

Soon, life in class got so much better XD.

I got to know some people more like YLi and HLi, who both were my classmates in the past, but we never gotten close, and my deskmate, E-Jia who craps with me all day from her JoJo to her Mark X). All 3 of them have been wonderful classmates this year, enlightening me and helping me try to join in. I still remember when you guys practiced interviewing with me =). Thanks so much. <3 <3

Make sure muzz bond nexx ywear X D

Moving on to my classmates. Sure, we seem to say we are not united but if you look close enough, there is inter-clique activity in class. Everyone (almost) seems to be able to mix with everyone. And the guys at the back are always there to entertain. And our class party was quite a success I might say. So there. S2, there’s still another year ahead, don’t spoil it!

Relationships were strained again, some approaching the end of the year too. And most in the midst of patching up. Some still scarred. I never caught up with some friends, due to placing of classes. I met new friends too.

Tis the year, activities started pouring onto me.

Joined Yellow House marching. Rekindled the yellow spirit. (Kuning Fire!). Did crazy dance moves. Coaxed two people to spend the night sleeping at the BSMM room. (==) Saw the raw emotion and spirit of CHS-ians during Sports Day. Will get the crown back next year XD.

Stayed back in school a lot. For activities that might pop up.

Was half hearted about certain things I felt gung-ho about at first. Ah, regret =(

Finally, got a shot at Ed Board. Please no more strike outs.

And then girl guides. Where the journey to my goal, grew more and more hazard. Where obstacles rose to their peak. Where new dangers await.  Yet, also where true comrades show. Where friendship is cherished. Where bonds are gained =).

I said things I regret. I had too lofty and as I think about it now, really ludicrous ambitions.

I sent the closer batch of seniors off without really sending them off properly. I never got to know them more. I probably disappointed some. I have to live up to one. =)

I joined BRATs! X D Awesome people. At least in there, you don’t worry about conflicts and such. Everyone just wants to have fun. Sadly though, I missed the Year End Journey. =( *Heart stings*)

I must always remind myself to seize every chance, to take the leap, go for that moment, because you never know when you’ll ever get the chance again.

Manage myself properly><. My grades plummeted at the final exam. Ish. And I missed and wil miss so much more lessons next year.

Achieve my goal. And let it end on a happy note.

Go through the journey with a smile on my face and to never let you fall behind, nor fall behind you. For what’s the point, If I suffered to achieve my goal? And what’s more the point if I achieve it alone?

Mend what I had broke. Friendships, promises…etc

Enjoy every moment I get!

All in all, be a better person.

 

2010 , bring it on!

Rewind.

My blog stats have been very low lately =(. They seem to be stuck at 8600-8700, dunno why.

The account of the more eventful thing that happened these few days XD.
24th December 09

This was the BAKP celebration turned PMR result release outing =. =. Since my comrades of camp all couldn't make it or pulled out suddenly, it became me, worm, Han Lin, Ming Jean, Kei Li and Huiwen only who went. Pui San was out, then in then out again finally due to lack of mood=. = As Jia describes it" Papa, Mama and 4 children, with HL as eldest son lol!

So while the Form 3s were waiting for their results, I was running about getting permission slips issued, supposedly the job of said someone who dumped it on me for tuition. Grrr >< After that, spent like an hour, adding simple deco to the lodge. Pretty simple till unnoticable=. =

Then like about 12(?) the results finally came out. Brings back memories of last year =). So happy for them ^^ and the rest who were disappointed, it's alright, just stand up and fight again. Form 4 is different from those past 3 years~. Didn't take photos of those moments, should have >< then Pei wouldn't have that much trouble~

Hehe Ming Jean and Kei Li headed off first, leaving me, Hl and Hw waiting for Alicia.....Got so restless that we called her..and got no answer -. - Finally went to Kanna for lunch till she appeared. Walao la, MJ and KL were already at Sunway by then.

After a bus ride, finally made it, met up with them and went skating~

Took photos in the skate rink, though cameras actually aren't allowed X D Teehee


Sighs, evil camera so shaky ><


25th December 2009

Christmas~ Steamboat with the family for dinner X D

26th December 2009

Went to Rumah Hope with Guides. o.0 Kids are hard to get to these days. Wonder if Hui Li and gang experienced the same thing, though their photos said otherwise. Even called Hui Li for advise lol! But I would think it got better with them at the end, yes it did =0= And the place really quite nice. Most have lots of sponsors haha.

28th December 2009

Went to Sunway Pyramid with Le Yi. Saw Avatar. Wow, nice nice graphics ^^. Met many people there too.

29th December 2009

Went to HQ for Khidmat Presentation.. But thenm I didn't need to present already haha! And Pn Tek seems to forgot about my log peribadi. Ah Hm, never mind, more time to do it ~ And now, I have phone calls to make >< Next 3 months will be so hectic o.0

30th December 2009

Bro's orientation in school lo. Could have gone to sunway with the juniors. But didn't. Could have gone to MV too. But didn't. Thank god I didn't X D. Got to be reacquainted with Wen who I only saw like 2 times this month== Which is very few considering how often we used to see each other. Took pictures in the hall but no poin la upload them here. Same as usual. Though the slide shows were cool. So proud to be in CHS X D. And during the prefect's rules slide, crayon shin chan is counted as pronography lol.

Tomorrow's the start of a new year o.0 Gasp, and I didn't feel like I was having much of a holiday. I seem to go to school everyday also==. Will blog on 2009 later.

Friday, December 25, 2009

Under the mistletoe

Hahaha,

Merry Christmas, people X D!!

Got stuff to blog about but I didn't upload the photos yet. So, I'll just post this greeting and be off ~

Steamboat Yum X)

when you get what you want, but not what you need

I'm now sick. >< Is this from stress (if any)?

Haha, but I really need some peace of mind T_T I can never live a day now without worrying about folios to complete, or studies not caught up with. Ish! The thing is, it's all thought and no action. Typical Zhi Min. Haha! Sighs *smacks head*

Survived camp! Finally, it's (almost) over.Still got log book to do. >< It turned out erm, alright. We didn't expected the unexpected. We brought almost everything yet could still forget studd. Ahem Ahem. People got along ok, thank god XD. This was unexpected, in a good way. I sucked, as usual....== But whatever~

So now, photos~
The lovely lovely river next to the campsite~

People sitting around the table

The sink lo obviously

Sad nia, later the flagpole had to be "renovated"

The skrin that gave us all one hell of a headache >< Sun XD

Taken during jungle trekking~

Rubber trees, also when jungle trekking


Another HOPE moment X D

View of the mountains



Upon reaching the river, we started cooking our lunch. Didn't have much time though. So only managed to cook like 2 packets of noodles==

Marissa, Huiwen and Lilin

There was this craft session at night, where the 4 candidates had to teach all 4 groups certain crafts. I did windmill. My group was like so syiok sendiri, we kept laughing to ourselves XD


Permainan luas, where I tortured them to do some very stupid things==

Playing on a rock wow o.0

Now fixing a puzzle

Soon, we embarked on our journey to the HotSprings~

Han Lin, Jia, Alicia K, Huiwen soaking their legs


The Mountain Spring

CHS Guides invade the Hotsprings!




HOPE clan + Han Lin XD


The 4 candidates plue Pn Tek and Miss Margaret~~


Camp went on pretty well, with a few bumps here and there. I know my group provided a lot of entertainment, especially you Le Yi, though you probably won't read this. Thanks for keeping the smiles on our faces X).

Hopefullly we get to go out ah~...Please work ><

Someone come over .........Please~

Sunday, December 20, 2009

will blog when I have a WORKING KEYBOARD!! ISH!!

Monday, December 14, 2009

There's Still HOPE

I don't feel like blogging lately cuz things I would blog about have photos with them and uploading photos takes sooo long. So, putting it off till later =. =

Time to continue being seemingly optimistic~

May it not rain during camp~

May everything run smooth in camp~

May everyone survive camp without harm~

May everyone be happy during camp

May the dark cloud of emo not befall anyone~

May we not leave anything behind -at school before camp and at the campsite after camp~

Leave any unhappy memories behind

Tomorrow I will go make 晴天娃娃 XD What's the harm eh?

Lyn: When are you free to come over? And I... don't...mind... Aik Zuan coming along =. =

Resignation

I never liked giving out opinions in situations like these. This would further lead to explanations, advancing further into arguments, then more defending and explaining. Tiring. Futile.

Mere words always made a bigger impact on me than actions. And those stung.

As I sat staring speechless at the desktop screen, I had to force to go through the whole thing. Now this one dark cloud looms over me. That of Regret.

So many wrong moves taken.

Uncontrolled emotions unravelled.

But, I still think there was a point we all never made done. Quite vital I think. I don't know. Just MHO.

Should have stayed silent.

I don't want and don't know how to continue. I lay this at peace here.

Should have stayed in the dark.

The Angels didn't catch YOU

Finally, I made myself click the "New Post" button ><.

So let's see, starting from last Friday. A trip to Sunway Lagoon with the family. Wow, I haven't been there in..dunno how long=. =.

Extreme Park- wasn't so extreme. And I was accused of not being able to manoeuvre an ATV ><

Scream Park- About the same as the Genting one.

Later on, headed in to Sunway Pyramid to look for The Last Olympian at MPH. Nada ><

Saturday, hiking at Taman Pertanian Shah Alam.

Eh, the tedious journey there was....unnecessary. Yes, we could have just taken the LRT instead of switching from bus to KTM en-route to KL Sentral. And I supposed both sides were unhappy somehow with their condition. Walkers of course, had to walk=. = without prior knowledge of the park. So they must have got bored easily and called me....Then, us who cycled ah, must have angered the Spirits of the Watch Tower that day! Five fell victim to the slopes of the Walk. With Worm suffering the worst. Muahaha~ Hm, next time should seek permission before heading up to see the watch tower =. =

Actually, why are the cycling routes and the bus routes the same? Isn't that very unsafe???? So they just expect us to skirt to the side everytime a vehicle shows up? And no safety gear? Or should we have brought our own~~ Maybe the authorities thought it was only a leisurely cycle for tourists? Not really loh. The place really needs maintenance. Mum was right ><

The best part was the camwhoring XD


HOPE XD

Sunday Night - PJYCO Concert, Music Splendour.

Ming Jean gave me, Pui San, Nydeaa and Kei Li free tickets to her orchestra's concert. So, we went lo~ Worm was supposed to go too. Then, she fell on Sat so was not deemed well enough to go out yet.

I actually saw a lot of CHS-ians there, both from the performers and spectators.

Performers: Ming Jean, Chun Yeen, Sian Wei, Kyle, Chun Keat, Agnes, Jia Yee, Ray Aun, Wenkai, Kai Yik~~etc

Spectators: Me, Pui San, Nydeaa, Kei Li, S3 people- (Amy, Shao Wei, Sabrena, Yu Song, Ching Yeap, Cheng Zhi), Yin Suan, Rachel, Melody, Li Anne, Le Yi XD

Nice music. Especially the pieces at the back. So I guess as Ming Jean says, this concert passesXD.

The End is Near

Hmm..Nothing special to blog about so I'll just do a little run-through of what happened these few days.

On Sunday, watched 2012 with Lyn and Wen XD



Either people already spoiled it for me or it wasn't up to my already very high expectations XD But it was good though I think there could be more to be said than what that ending gave. Ah well.

So, because of the movie, the rest of the day went by pretty fast. We had lunch at 2? 0.o And Wen finally bought running shoes! And in of all places, Isetan==.

Monday, went back to school for meeting which then turned out to be more like um, wasting away in the lodge, then trapped in teacher's office to helping teacher spring clean==. And I ended up with all those Chinese workbooks~

People who went back with me ended up sleeping in the car. Really quickly too. Wow o.0

The different side of the story

Let's count my expenses for today, shall we? :

Bus Ticket to Mid Valley : RM 1
KTM Ticket to KL Sentral : RM 1
Donated to desperate guy : RM 1
KTM ticket to Shah Alam: RM 1.20
(Tried to get by with child ticket)
EPIC FAIL : Charged RM2.50 (adult price) ISHHHH DAMN THEM!
Taxi Fare: RM 10/3 ( Jue paid this first)
Lunch: RM 4.50/2 (someone paid first)
Entrance Fee: RM 3 (someone paid first)
Taxi Fare: RM 10 + RM 2
KTM Ticket back to KL sentral: 6 x Rm 2.50
KTM Ticket back to Midvalley: RM 1 x 6
Bus fare back to school : RM 1x 6

Woot! I saw many figures o.0. So, add up all the stuff I paid for and you have....

RM 45.70 ==

And when shall I get my money bacK? Not anytime soon............

Edit: Oh oh. Actually I should be getting about 32.50 back. Since the rest is my own expenses and about dunno how much I owe myself =. =

Tuesday, November 17, 2009

I should have been in the cinema now...><

Wow, I have not posted for 2 weeks already=.= What with Pra=Bakp and Permit Camp happening.

Pra was so-so, now I have to continue doing my log books ><.

Permit camp was really smooth and successful, cum some delays. Good job, Han Lin, Huiwen, Pui San, Ming Jean =D!!

Ahh, there's this one thing which is so frustating and really stupid=. = Me, Lyn and Wen were supposed to go out tomorrow but ok , I have a meeting, and meeting IS more important than going out==. Then, Friday we're all not free. Thursday Lyn's going out. Then, today she said she had to go back to school. Soo, nothing.

Then, Lyn called me today ask where were we? Turns out, she could go and she's in school already T_T But wen can't be contacted and I'm stuck at home. Thus, plan failed T_T =(((

And I have Chinese tuition this Friday, and hiking too. Then next Saturday,I have Chinese tuition again, AND hiking again too. WTH ><>< ><

Oh yeah, an online wish for you.

Happy Birthday, Hui Wen!!

(though this is one day late) (i'll find a pic to put up later ^^")

Celebrating your 16th on the 16th XD

Sorry we can't go along with your plans =( We'll find a way

Tuesday, November 3, 2009

I lost the bet =.=

Why is my internet connection so random?

It suddenly died on me on Saturday then miraculously got revived today. Praise the lord! =D

My workpile increased again today. =. = So I must try and find pleasure in it!! No one said it has to be a grueling and tormenting process to the goal. I shall look on the seemingly bright side now X). And stay seemingly optimistic ^^. (Of course, not too optimistic till I neglect everything.)

My class must have many disciples studying in the way of the ninja. (Almost) everyone has practiced the art of deception where they leave and enter class as they please(yours truly included). And I tell you, there is no exhilaration to it== Well, maybe that was because I was safely hidden in my "safe house" X). The only fear was that of getting caught while walking back. But seeing how the geography of my classroom is......


The yearbook was finally out. And and my poem got published. BUT but the last two stanzas got cut out =(. Even my "=)" at the end! T-T. So the message I wanted to convey is no more. *Sobs*

One more thing, I lost the bet. Two people would probably be smirking when they see this. == Somehow, I think the punishment period is too short....And this is rather a bad time for me(and them) to start working for people==.

And if you were wondering, it was the last of the top 5. Sighs

That Sinking Feeling

I was enjoying myself in the water too much.

Everytime, I looked back I only saw far away swimmers trying to catch up. I only let myself relaxed and allowed the waves to sweep me along. Because I thought I would never be overtaken.

Thus, I got caught off guard.

A huge wave emerged and almost drowned me. I got pushed back to the shore but I saw those who were behind, moving along with that wave, onto a further destination.

But, this is fine. I will use the force of that wave to push me back up, stronger and calmer than before. Ready to tackle the great waters once more. I will be victorious once more.

When will the world start being honest with me?

My insolence annoys even me.

Not only that. Looking back, I am still the same stubborn, obnoxious, defiant introvert I was a year ago.

I cannot live up to my own thoughts and opinions.

I swore to do some Add Math every day during the PMR break. That didn't go well. I procrastinate everything, resulting in rushing, ending with nothing. I have my own opinions on the way things should have gone or should be. But I never do anything about it, not because I can't but because I won't. I would give myself reason after reason, demoralising my own self-worth. I am only talk but no action. Wait, no, I don't even talk. I think. Most ideas start off with short-lived enthusiasm and die out with a fizzle.

I've brought myself up against a task that's a few levels above me.

I wonder. Are there the snickers behind my backs? Are there the disapproving stares coming at my way? Is there the disbelief in my capability. There should be when I myself sometimes regard myself as not worthy. But that on the otherhand will cause the backfire effect urging me to prove myself more.

I am arrogant, obnoxious, insolent, whatever.

I would doubt the ability of others, roll my eyes at their incompetence. Yet, I myself am not any better, or maybe lesser than them. I believe respect is only given where respect is due. True there are only some I've held in my highest regards. I take seniority or authority as an excuse for people to demand respect. I judge on capability and personality.

I am so naive

I suspect a lot of people around me. Unless they have truly gained my trust. Their motives, I predict. Their actions, speech, I analyse. I just treat people honestly by how I feel about them. I don't want to wear a mask, it's so tiring. I don't want to waste time on friendships that won't last. I want people to approach me, but I don't make the first move. As I see the silhoulettes leaving, I ask whether people are just socialising but never truly befriending. I don't know how the world works, I do not want to. I would want to be an individual, standing on my own in any situation but I seem more like a helpless failure, a social outcast.

I've betrayed.

I put false hope on things I will never get.

The dream, will always stay a dream. My imagination keeps me in this rewinding scene, where I achieve what I want. It helps me stay sane. I still foster blind hopes but in truth, I know it is futile. I see a someone, going away and I don't know what to say. The more I chase, the more you faster escape. The further I get, you still stay away.

I've made a lot of wrong choices.

I cannot break out from my bubble

I cannot release myself from this psychological cage I've seemed to placed myself in. I fear any wrongdoings I may cause, or worry over any shame. I doubt my capability. I've shadowed myself below that of giants. I don't trust myself. I hesitate with every decision, not trusting myself. I only find solace and real freedom of expression in a few people. And thank god for them =).

I am on this emotional rollercoaster.

In short, yes, I emo frequently and at random moments. Beware.

I do not give myself enough credit? But there is no credit to give.

I fail. So much.

Flip the two-headed coin

It is hereby declared that if Soh Zhi Min gets into the top 5 of class this term, she will be slave to Low Jun Lyn and Kwan Hui Wen until the 16th of November. And they will be permitted to hit her like they initially planned to. But no shoe throwing ><.

*Terms and Conditions apply.

Won't happen anyway X) Seeing how lousy I did this term.

Sunny Side Up

I seemed to have gone out everyday for this 4 days =. =. And now bearing the consequences of not getting any work done. ><

Yesterday, me, le yi, lyn, wen and jia went to Mid Valley to catch Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs.

Shows that too much food is bad for your health (and your survival.) X)

Lol, and the movie had all those Chem terms for Lyn. Hahaha^^

Picked out Shan En's gift at the first stall we saw==. And realised there was a whole row of them. Bad consumerism, this is.

Suggested the food court for lunch. Then, looked at the directory and in the end, it was still the food court=. =.

I actually forgot to take pictures. Except for one random scene.

And you know what? After me and Wen went home, these happy people took the wrong bus and ended up in KL Sentral. They were supposed to head back to school by the way =. =.

Then today, me, Alicia and our four permit candidates went hiking again. Also to the Lake Gardens. And we got lost a few times == But nothing happened la. Today was so hot. Last time it rained a bit so it was nice and cool =D.

Shan En received her gift. And left it in school. ==

Speaking of school, it starts again tomorrow >< Aww shoot

Martians and Earthlings

Friday was a day for celebration~^^

Cause we(me, seng yew and wen) had a successful outing for once.

We went to the Shogun at Sunway Pyramid for dinner. Left home at about 4.30 pm and wen's dad sent the 3 of us there~ The restaurant didn't open until 6 so we walked around the place until it was time.

Waited for Sin Yee and Siew Mein to come before we went to take food.

People were very lame during dinner e,g 回头率, 火星语. 地球语...

Hehe. Lame. So lame.

o.0 We witnessed severe food wastage and Wen has high metabolism >< *envy*

We camwhored a bit but people don't want their pics shown so.......



Here's a picture of my ice-cream


And me camwhoring with a spoon~

Sad case, I know==.

In the end, everyone was full....except wen XD But she got effected by us, so, did not continue eating lo.

After Siew Mein left, we go wander aimlessly around Pyramid. Nice X) And someone got a muscle cramp in her legs, so we looked like posers outside shops =. =

And also looked like homeless people, seating on the benches...crapping in "martian language" and "earth language". And the 3 of us would break into song everytime Seng Yew played
身骑白马 and 失落沙洲~

Then on Saturday, I went to Sunway Pyramid. Again.

My bro was going out with his friends. So I went to see books~ Couldn't find the one I really wanted though. Dang it.

Then, later went to Mum's office for Hari Raya dinner.

And today, me, wen, lyn, le yi and jia are going to MV to watch Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs.

Btw, Wen, call this my lousy sense of taste but I think you look better lo. That's why I never laughed at "those" jokes. You never give yourself any credit for your looks Haiz.... =)

Telepathy, Empathy, Sympathy?

This is especially for the twin, Lyn X)

We somehow seem to think the other can guess what we're thinking (eg. your blog post==). So, this is for you! To interpret! Let's see what you can get from this poem I wrote. Hm Hm ^^

Seasons

Pale blue sky,

Morning glow,

Yet the air is dry,

Why is the waking of the land so slow?


Threading on fresh grass,

Vibrant hues,

Blossoms of the new,

But still the blades scar me as I pass,

Pulling me back to what I thought was lost,

Colours fade as I try to hold on,

Fragile petals with the wind gone,

All fading with time due


Scorching sun up high,

Mocking me as I blindly go by,

Yet the chill is here,

Something dreadful approaching I fear.


Holding my hands up high,

Reaching out to grasp,

What has already died.


A shower of yellow,

Raining red,

None my fellow,

One spirit’s dead.


Stuck on the cold,

Here comes the snow,

Warmth I try to withhold,

Like water it will flow.


I hear the wind blowing,

See the sun blazing,

Feel the Earth growing,

But why am I fading?


Seasons revolve,

One to the other,

Yet nothing gets resolve,

Here will repeat again another.


The warmth is here,

Yet I feel cold,

The sky is clear,

But why is my world so uncontrolled?


The Earth is growing,

The times are changing,

But I’m still dying,

My spirit is wilting.


Observer at the stand,

As this heart starts to wear

Regret is the end

I will never be anywhere.


I wonder what deduction you can come up with.


Of course, this is also for other readers to admire *cough cough*


Good Luck Lyn^^! Let's see how good our twin telepathy is.


And tell Aik Zuan to unblock me=. = if he did block me.


Thursday, October 15, 2009

Short Posts like this aint needing no title

Ok....I got FFK-ed again. =.=

And I feel so tired..Not just because of exams...

Why are things always like that?

I should just get fed up and throw my hopes away.

The turbulent whirlpool that is my life, starts again.

Tuesday, October 13, 2009

Remember all the worry about Add Math?

Well, I'm still not doing anything. When will I learn*sighs and smacks head.*

yay me!

Saturday, October 10, 2009

Russian Roulette

Minds made up,

Decisions won’t go back,

Revolvers lay,

Fingers ready to act.


Glint of the metal,

Weight of the bullet,

Spin the barrel,

Just bet on it.


Tentative hesitation,

Apprehensive glances,

Here comes the rotation

No second chances.


Nervous shaking,

Trigger pulled,

Beads of sweat dripping,

Here comes the end.


Is it death?

One bullet will decide,

But life’s like that.

It’s usually never on your side.


If you’re lucky,

You’re free to move on,

If you’re not,

Well, so long.

You Got No Skill XD

I will probably get killed if it's found out that we went to the Lake Gardens instead of just looking at trees in Taman Jaya. But it was worth it! And we came back with time to spare. =)

So, arrived at school in the morning. and made a stop at the RC room to chat with Lyn and Wen XD. And apparently, Lyn feels honoured to be called cuter then two 9 and 7 year-old girls. Anyway, I practically ignored someone and left her sleeping in the Lodge but then, I already told her I was at the room=. =".

We put off our initial plan to have hike cooking( which we found out later could have been done la as we were early~) and walked to Taman Jaya. Experienced the Rush Hour LRT XD People trying to squeeze in at every stop. But I guess, being like a switching point for all commuters, more people got down. We got delayed at KL Sentral cause......we didnt know which direction to head. But fortunately, we did not get lost, and we found the musuem and from there headed to the Lake Gardens.

To summarize what happened next, we :

1) walked a lot but didn't see any monkeys by the road
2) took pictures in a building and set off the warning=.=
3) failed to interview Arabs== as they only speak well, Arabic
4)listened to Michael Jackson songs in the Bird Park gift shop
5)interviewed more friendlier caucasian tourists
6)spotted a pair of little triplets =D
7)told tourist that the entrance fee for the bird park is rm15 when that was actually the price for Malaysian Citizens =S
8)sat a over charged taxi back to KL Sentral
9) Hanged at a McDonald's outlet in KL sentral
10)I ate a sundae that was so not worth it== it didn't even fill the container
9) walked back to school from Taman Jaya Station
10) Lepak 30 minutes at the canteen~

Then, I had me a nice long nap. Z Z z z


Taken at the McD outlet. =D

Other photos in Facebook~

I will probably fail add maths but oh well...

*Slaps myself in the face*

Those words coming from me?!

And to think with a 54 for Add Math last term, I got 2nd in class. Hahaha~

Seriously, never have I felt so futile before an exam. ><><

Thank god, there's still Paper 1.

And I shall make sure to really work hard for Add Math this time.






Starting tomorrow.




PS: No one seems to think it's possible for me to fail o.0

Saturday, October 3, 2009

I'm just a little bit caught in the middle

AH, finally the weekends are here!

And I already screwed my physics paper. Careless careless =( Stupid insufficient time.

And and I also think God doesn't want me to achieve anymore than I can now nor does he want me to go down (in the matter of exam grade average, anyway). So sometimes, luck is with me and other times,...well, shit happens ==

I still blame the panic caused by insufficient time. Heck, I couldn't even check my answers. ><

Add Math!! ><

Turbulence

The first(and hopefully not the last) time I'm in an Ed-Board shirt==

Run, Forrest , Run!

I just finished watching Forrest Gump. And yes, it was Awesome!





Now I know way people enjoyed it so much. =) And Forrest has that country accent that strangely reminds me of To Kill A Mocking Bird. And now I want to watch that too!

OK, I have to get back to Bio soon. And after this weekend, it's back to war. =.=

Gotta remember to seize every oppurtunity and make the best outta life =)

Headaches and fatigue

Ugh... only 2 days of exam and I feel like I've just returned to the homeland from a year away at war. So tired...more mentally than physically...

Sadly, the thrill of exams has not yet arrived. I only felt fear, these 2 days. Fear of screwing up and striking out ><.

What's more is that I have to go through the excruciating torture of the rest of the subjects after the one week break.

Ish, and my oral's not done yet =.=

Twin, did you still sit for the BC paper after Chem o.0?

Why did you bother coming to school in the first place? Is Chem that important to you?

Hm..Would I do the same for English?

YES!......

But it must be really serious if I would be absent from school.

NO!

But I really want to test myself with the essay topic ><

@.@

And why did you kill me off in your essay? T-T Or at the least hospitalise me...

Someone call 999!

Hm hm..Do some recalling of what I did for the weekend.

Saturday was spent..in school as usual..Ish, I spent like 14 hours in school, with less than an hour at home in between ><

Morning, went to school for guide acitivity and the form 4s besides COH didn't show =.="

Little ones would be having Kelas Dua exams. Me and Worm Worm were supposedly in charge of tanda mengesan/ larian pengakap but due to some.......INTERFERENCE....well..stuff happens==

Don't bother about that then, went to help Form 2s with their fire lighting..There must be something in the air that day cause...it was pretty unsuccessful initially...

Hm..after that..saw little ones through flag raising exam.

*If you want your photos, come find me in MSN ;)"

Form 4s stayed back for meeting. Mind was on wander mode since it never works at the appropriate times ><

o.0 3.30pm already then. Fetched Marissa and Worm worm. Lol someone slept in the car. Missed a photo oppurtunity =(.

Went back to school for Alumni Dinner duty. o.0 The CHS spirit still strong with them even though they graduated like..20 years ago.

Photos *in no particular order*


Sunday, nothing much except Wen, Seng Yew came over though this time they brought Teng Yi along so that's one more to the list of people who visited my house=.="

And then, someone kept begging for ice-cream even though you already had your first serving. I told you to take yourself lo. Always treating me like a servant in my own home =.=" I know you will read this eventually so *sticks tongue out* =P

Spent the day in school yesterday rushing my folio when the lesson didnt seem necessary. =P Went out of class during the last period too but when I came back, teacher wasn't even there yet==.

o.0 Today is the 9th of the 9th month of the two thousand and 9th year lol=D

Lousy connection . can't upload photos >M<

If dreams could go forever..~

Today is a happy happy day =)

If only I had you for myself more ><. And ish, no pictures T-T

Blah

OK, now I'm certain my article got edited ==. Here's the orginal. See for yourself. And yes, I am perasan, Nicholas X)

Truly Malaysian


It’s that time of the year again…


You see our very own Jalur Gemilang being hung outside households. You see it fluttering with the course of the wind as the car it’s attached to zooms past. And of course, you see energetic young Malaysians wave the flag excitedly as they usher in our independence. Yes, the sounds, the smells, the sights, the people, all part of the Merdeka Mood.


But wait!


We don’t seem to be getting much of that now this year, do we? Even as Merdeka Day draws near, the atmosphere has yet to catch up with it. By now, we should all be discussing on our trip to Dataran Merdeka, or getting the Jalur Gemilang out as we prepare to fly it once again. The media should be busy reminding everyone of this day with their commercials and shopping outlets would use it as means of promotion for their goods. You could say that, this year, things have been quiet compared to past years. It could be because of the H1N1 epidemic or the weariness Ramadhan has brought to us. Still, that does not mean we do not have the patriotism in us.


Why again do we celebrate Merdeka? It is not just to relish in the extra day off we get, nor to admire the workmanship of floats as they parade past. It is just simply, to celebrate our independence. Remember how past leaders fought to release this land from foreign hands? Remember how the pioneers of freedom took rein of our country from the British? Remember when our people came together not as Malays, Chinese and Indians but as a whole, as Malaysians, to take back what was rightfully ours? Merdeka Day serves as a reminder. It tells us how through, unity, determination and passion, we can achieve anything.


Thus, it does not take much to celebrate Merdeka. You only need you yourself and one more essential thing: your spirit. You don’t need flowery floats, extravagant events or huge posters to show your love for the country. On the contrary, those things do not prove your loyalty to Malaysia. It’s the effort and commitment you put in for your country. Of course, you don’t have to go the length of going into war for it. Just being willing to work for it and to sacrifice for it is enough show your support for it. Even if you’re away in another country, you could still celebrate Merdeka. If your intentions for your country are still there, you are and always will be a true Malaysian.

It does not take only one day for us to celebrate our independence. August 31 may be significant because it was the actual day we had our first grasp of independence, but shouldn’t we be celebrating everyday? Be grateful that we live in an even though imperfect, but free country. Be happy that we wake up to the sounds of cars honking and not bombs exploding. Be proud to see “Made in Malaysia” labeled on the products we purchase. All these are simple things, little actions. Yet, it shows something deeper. It reflects our gratitude towards our ancestors, how their sacrifice brought us our today. You don’t need to chant “Merdeka” to celebrate our independence, you just need to be grateful for it.


Even if celebrations are not as grand as before, it does not mean our love for the country has dwindled. Merdeka day after all is one to celebrate our independence and the course of events that follow after. And if one is grateful for the Malaysian slang we hear everyday, the many varieties of food we savour each day and the colourful people we get to be with, then one is celebrating Independence. Furthermore, then one is truly, proudly a Malaysian.


Happy Independence Day.

Being boastful==

The article I wrote for the Star Ole BRATs, with edited parts...I think.==

Truly Malaysian

by Soh Zhi Min

It’s that time of the year again… when you see the Jalur Gemilang hung outside houses and buildings. You see it fluttering on cars. And of course, you see energetic young Malaysians wave the flag excitedly as they usher in Aug 31. Yes, these are the usual elements that make up the Merdeka mood.

But wait! We don’t seem to be getting much of that this year.

There is little of the usual outpouring of patriotism this year, even as Merdeka fast approaches. By now, we would all be discussing our trip to Dataran Merdeka, or getting the Jalur Gemilang out as we prepare to fly it high.

The media would be full of news, pictures and footages of people proclaiming their love for the country, and how excited they are about celebrating the nation’s Independence Day. There would usually be Merdeka sales everywhere.

However, this year things have been rather quiet compared to previous years.

There won’t even be the usual Merdeka parade this year because of A(H1N1) fears. Besides, it is also the fasting month for Muslims.

Does that mean we have become any less patriotic?

Why do we celebrate Merdeka? It is just to relish a public holiday, or to have an excuse to put up a parade. Is it just simply to celebrate our independence. Remember how past leaders fought to release this land from foreign hands? Remember how independence was attained from the British? Remember when our people came together not as Malays, Chinese and Indians but as Malaysians, to take back what was rightfully ours? Merdeka Day serves as a reminder. It tells us how through, unity, determination and passion, we can achieve anything.

So, it actually does not take much to celebrate Merdeka... the only vital thing is your patriotic spirit. You don’t need flowery floats, extravagant events or huge posters to show your love for the country.

On the contrary, those things do not prove your loyalty to the country. It’s the effort and commitment you put in for your country.

It’s not about spilling your blood in warzones. It’s just about being willing to do your best for the country. Even if you’re away in another country, you could still celebrate Merdeka.

Merdeka is not a one-day celebration. August 31 is a significant day, but shouldn’t we be celebrating our country’s independence everyday? Be grateful that we live in a country free from colonisers, even with all its imperfections.

Be happy that we wake up to the sounds of cars honking and not bombs exploding. Be proud to see “Made in Malaysia” labels on the products we purchase. All these are simple things, little actions. Yet, it shows something deeper. You don’t need to chant Merdeka to celebrate our independence, you just need to be appreciative of it.

Even if the celebrations are not as grand this year as before, it does not mean our love for the country has dwindled.

Merdeka day after all is one to celebrate our independence and the course of events that follow after.

And if one is grateful for the Malaysian slang we hear everyday, the many varieties of food we savour each day and happy with our fellow countrymen, then one is celebrating Independence. Then, one is truly, proudly a Malaysian.

Happy Independence Day.
