The Topsy-Turvy Ultimatum

What on EARTH was this?

Okay, school was off yesterday due to Good Friday. That was why we had the "Kem Ikhtiar Hidup" (Live-Survival Camp" as pictorially-described in my previous post. However, we had school today and many students were absent. The main reason was lack of transport.

Oh my god, schooldays during Saturday means that I cannot help in cleaning the temple! In truth, I like social jobs, yet there is always too much assignments to be completed. Wait, I have Moral Education and Accounts Principals assignments undone!

We had lessons as usual, until the time after recess. Later, we went to hear a talk on the paintball game. It was quite interesting, yet I decided not to join it. Why?

  • I cannot aim well.
  • I have no time.
  • Cost?

I was quite relieved to have no schoolwork left when, it dawned on me that the piling tuition work and coursework are waiting for me...!!!

Saturday classes really almost drove me insane. Lack of rest, lack of sleep and lack of ENERGY!!!

Kem Ikhtiar Hidup

It was the "Kem Ikhtiar Hidup" yesterday. Here are just some snapshots on that event. It was really FUN!

Before the camp begins.

Everyone LISTEN!

Light moments during the camp.

Friends Forever

We are ALWAYS ready for challenges!

My Crazy Group 2

Our half-cooked egg...!!!

Our lempeng pisang.

We love the environment, that was why we did not use plastic bag...!!!

"Beautiful", RIGHT???!!!

Paintball Games, RM7 per entry.

I got only 1/15 shots from the game. "Pro" right? XD

Anyway, paintball was FUN!

Ready, Aim, SHOOT!

Friday Parody-Fried Eggs

In truth, I really HATE the song "Friday" by Rebecca Black and I wonder why it can earn many views. Auto-tune, childish lyrics, sickening music... YUCKS!

However, I like this parody. It is freaking CUTE and FUNNY! <3

Ѧʏ Яσмαиcɛ ωιтн βαиαиα χƉ

Those are some snippets with the banana fruit which comes from my home-planted banana tree. I love the fruits. In fact, banana is one of my MAJOR favourites! However, my sister hates it due to the smell. I do not understand why...

I will have to wait for long to relish the plump, fleshy, soft and sweet home-grown fruit again...

Taylor Swift-Fifteen

Fifteen lyrics
Songwriters: Swift, Taylor Alison;

You take a deep breath and you walk through the doors
It's the morning of your very first day
And you say hi to your friends you ain't seen in a while
Try and stay out of everybody's way

It's your freshman year and you're gonna be here
For the next four years in this town
Hoping one of those senior boys will wink at you and say
"You know, I haven't seen you around before"

'Cause when you're fifteen and somebody tells you they love you
You're gonna believe them
And when you're fifteen feeling like there's nothing to figure out
Well, count to ten, take it in
This is life before you know who you're gonna be

You sit in class next to a redhead named Abigail
And soon enough you're best friends
Laughing at the other girls who think they're so cool
We'll be outta here as soon as we can

And then you're on your very first date and he's got a car
And you're feeling like flying
And you're momma's waiting up and you're thinking he's the one
And you're dancing 'round your room when the night ends
When the night ends

'Cause when you're fifteen and somebody tells you they love you
You're gonna believe them
When you're fifteen and your first kiss
Makes your head spin 'round
But in your life you'll do things greater than
Dating the boy on the football team
But I didn't know it at fifteen

When all you wanted was to be wanted
Wish you could go back and tell yourself what you know now

Back then I swore I was gonna marry him someday
But I realized some bigger dreams of mine
And Abigail gave everything she had to a boy
Who changed his mind and we both cried

'Cause when you're fifteen and somebody tells you they love you
You're gonna believe them
And when you're fifteen, don't forget to look before you fall
I've found time can heal most anything
And you just might find who you're supposed to be
I didn't know who I was supposed to be at fifteen

Your very first day
Take a deep breath girl
Take a deep breath as you walk through the doors

Taylor Swift-Teardrops on My Guitar

Teardrops On My Guitar lyrics
Songwriters: Rose, Liz; Swift, Taylor Alison;

Drew looks at me
I fake a smile so he won't see
What I want and I need
And everything that we should be

I'll bet she's beautiful
That girl he talks about
And she's got everything
That I have to live without

Drew talks to me
I laugh 'cause it's just so funny
I can't even see
Anyone when he's with me

He says he's so in love
He's finally got it right
I wonder if he knows
He's all I think about at night

He's the reason for the teardrops on my guitar
The only thing that keeps me wishing on a wishing star
He's the song in the car I keep singing
Don't know why I do

Drew walks by me
Can he tell that I can't breathe?
And there he goes, so perfectly
The kind of flawless I wish I could be

She better hold him tight

Give him all her love
Look in those beautiful eyes
And know she's lucky 'cause

He's the reason for the teardrops on my guitar
The only thing that keeps me wishing on a wishing star
He's the song in the car I keep singing
Don't know why I do

So I drive home alone
As I turn out the light
I'll put his picture down
And maybe get some sleep tonight

'Cuz he's the reason for the teardrops on my guitar
The only one who's got enough of me to break my heart
He's the song in the car I keep singing
Don't know why I do

He's the time taken up but there's never enough
And he's all that I need to fall into
Drew looks at me
I fake a smile so he won't see

The Parliamentary Debate and S.I.R.

This week, my friends and I are having endless DRILLS for the District level Parliamentary Debate. After gaining victory as follows:

  • First preliminary round: Win without battle as the opponent pulled out.
  • Second preliminary round: Win against SABK Maahad al-Tarbiah al-Islamiah
  • Quarter-final round: Win against SMK Darul Ridwan.
  • Semi final: win against SMK Pengkalan Aur.
  • Final: Pending.. against SMK Taman Tasik. Lose or win? It is an undefined answer.

The title for the upcoming debate is "Ibu Bapa menjadi instrumen penting dalam menerapkan semangat patriotik". Oh my damn godness. The title is quite difficult, especially for the opponent side. I help in doing the Head oponent script.

Actually, it is not really that hard, it is just the statistics. That is the REAL problem. Anyway I hope we can beat the long-lasting champion!!!

Besides, I am joining the "Spell-It-Right" Challenge organized by the New Straits Times. I am the oldest participant of my school. the challenge April 2011 at Taiping Sentral.

Go TMGS! You ROCK!!!!!!

Okay, I will share more stories and songs later on. Adieu. Stay tuned!

I need a break...

Sorry guys for not updating my blog for the past week! I was busy with the Parliamentary Debate competition and fighting against HOMEWORK.

Okay, well, I am not accustomed to grumble that much. Yet, seriously, GIVE ME A BREAK!
Do you know why?

Well, Form 5 students are going to battle at the examination hall at the end of the year. It is just a few months away. My class was put under HIGH PRESSURE!!!
It was on a typical schoolday last week. I forgot which day and what time it was, but that event happened during Mathematics class, if I am not mistaken. The "Great One" (*cough-cough*) STORMED into the class and began droning, and speaking loudly.

"I did a large mistake by focusing on only one girl to get straight A's in SPM lat year, so I decided to focus on the WHOLE class this year.
I am going to make many programs just for you. Your teachers are committed to help you all. I understand that you are tired to continue studying after school. Therefore, I decide to make you come to extra classes after school."

There comes the point where I got really HEATED!

"You all ah, cannot study at home. Many Form 5 girls missed 'A' due to study lift. You really need more GUIDANCE!" That was after I told her that I have my own study plan, which is to make notes for reading subjects, such as Biology and History. I improved in History due to that method. It is just a matter of time.

In my point of view, students in examination classes should be given a chance to relax while studying. Overstress can backfire as students will be left with little stamina. In turn, they will lack energy and concentration to continu
e studying. Thus, their studies will suffer in turn. Thus, I must say that we are NEITHER BATTERY-CHARGED HUMANOIDS OR EXAMINATION ROBOTS!!!

Poor teachers and students. The teachers get angered easily and tend to throw a tantrum.Let us see...

"Kalau awak tak dapat 'A' bagi mata pelajaran cikgu, jumpalah ********!"
(If you do not score an 'A' for my subject, get ready to meet the *********!)

"Hang pi mampus lah! Tak baca subjek aku!"
(Go and die for not reading my subject!) Oh my dreadful goodness.

However, everything goes to the relevant department, and it keeps sticking on the examination-orientated system until the School authorities got mad, the teachers got the blame, and the students get insane!

Oh yeah, another word of hers flashed into my mind... (I translated it to English)

"Students, stop joining activities and concentrate on only STUDIES! UNDERSTAND???!!!"

Hell yeah, you are a great help for the holistic development in students, I must say! Without sports and extra-curricular activities, how on earth the students are to be excellent future leaders, huh?

Okay, I am not going to grumble more until I look old! I am going my way on, and I am moving on. After all, it is only around 200 days until I can reach the GREAT ESCAPADE...!!!

Push Me Further

This week was indeed an insanity streak. Besides having to help my friends to prepare scripts for the Malay language Parliamentary Debate competition, I am joining some Essay Competitions and not to forget, LOADS of essay homework to do!

However, I managed to steal some time out for some shout-outs in my website. Yet, my eyed are damn unlucky-facing the computer at least two hours a day! Somehow, this is the CRAZIEST WEEK ever.

Okay, first and foremost, I was slightly terrified to know the theme song for the English week-Justin Bieber's "Pray". (No offense to beliebers, okay? ) JB? Oh my gosh. Yet, to me, the song is fairly acceptable due to the lyrics.

Secondly, I wish to take this opportunity to express my congratulations to those who excelled in SPM 2010, especially for those from my school of course. To those who obtained straight A's, continue to shine in the future! To the rest, strive and you will excel and be competitive. Never give up! (Of course, I am going to dedicate the latter to this year's batch too... )

Thirdly, I wish all the best to Latha, Cynthia, Durga, Hanan and Saras as they joined the Parliamentary Debates. My friends and I are there to support and we promise we will work all-out for your best. YOU GUYS ROCKS! Congratulations for winning the second preliminary round! Now we are against SMK DARUL RIDWAN.


Today, I helped to time my friends during the physical endurance test in the Physical Education class. I went to weigh myself for fun. What...???

67kg???!!! goodness, despite eating relatively small portions (less than half plate of rice), my stubborn weight did not seem to drop even a bit! Maybe it was due to stress and lack of rest? Heavens!

Lastly, I was actually quite happy as I got to join quite many activities this year-especially writing. I actually thought of pursuing a career in this field. However, I was quite grieved for having horrible results and lost my MERIT CARD...!!! =='

And now, there are some things for me to look for: Diligence, hope and good memory, as I seem to slip items off my head too easily... :( Oh yeah, haven't I said that I had became a great PANDA? XD

It is late now and I have to go offline. See you guys next week... :D


(Note: This is my first poem for this year, as I was too busy for all the time. I just sneaked some time out... It is about a story of an alley child based on an essay I wrote in school. Do enjoy guys! You can try to rap it as well in the middle verse... )

Left alone on a lonely street
And living, lost and forlorn
Watching people come to-and-fro
Leaving me all alone

In this dark, cold alley
There with my friends I lived
In poverty, cold and filth
There was the place I belongs.

On the run were always we,
To hide from those cruel eyes
Who point and sneer and laugh at us,
Yet we do not cry.

Freedom was where I used to be,
Until a lady picked me up
A huge mansion was where I went
And my freedom drifted away.


House rules, school rules, family rules,
I hate rules and regulations
And I want to break FREE!

Free from home, free from school
And I just want to ESCAPE!
I will never ever be the good girl
Which you want me to be.

I entered the jail with high walls
Not to study, not to be in class
And c'mon and see what you can do to me!


There comes the sickening Headmaster
And his world-renowned "army camp"
And when my name went through the loudspeaker,
There I was to face the doom.

Yet I was lucky, freaking lucky
When he doze off to slumber
I crept out as quiet as a rat
And back to the wild, I am


My life entered a brand new chapter
Where I became an ultimate GANGSTER
There I get high with all sorts of stuff
And I am no longer clean and nice.

There we got boozy and get HIGH and cool
And turned the silent night into a disco
We rocked on with little care and pain,
We are born to be young and free and who the heck cares?
The lonely roads become our racing tracks and nobody seems to bother, Yeah!


It was on a Sunday night when my life entered into a new chapter
When the plainly-dressed stormed into the clubhouse full-forced
And with a yelp and gasp all my buddies went to an escapade
And I jumped off the third floor with a loud CRASH onto the ground.

There the hospital was my temporary home
And I can no longer go on the run...


The warm tears rolled like pearls over my face
And there I faced the court with sheer disgrace
Heavens, how can I recover my tarnished little face?

Into the Juvenile School I went
With a sense of regret and no consent
And it was here,
which I underwent various torment

There is no liberty in this living hell
Which is deep down like a well
And here I am, screaming but
No one can come to help...

Please, save me, save me
From this living dungeon
Please, save me, save me
From more shame and regret

But I know that
There is sunshine and rainbow
Behind the storms and hurricanes
There is dew
In the desert
There is love
In my world, my world

And I hear God says,
"Girl, please come and listen to me,
there is never too late
To turn back and reach for the stars."

There is love in the dungeon
With my friends of the same fate
They are with me, always with me
And they whispered to me,
"You are not alone. You have just got the path wrong."


Goodbye, beer, goodbye, cigar
Hello to the kitchen, hello to a new life;
Goodbye to evil, goodbye to despair
And hello to a beautiful new world."

And there was, I am,
After leaving the school
Maybe I am lost and unwanted
But there is a faint voice, behind me:

"You are never lost and you are not forlorn,
You are still young and strong,
Come follow me, to the ultimate
Path of beauty and hope."

There was an old friend, who beckoned me
To follow her down the alley
And there was when my messy life
Got a good start ahead...

And my life was never like before.
