I have hibernated at home for almost half a year and got seven kilograms heavier! My goodness, I eat little daily and do not have a ginormous appetite. (One fried chicken drumstick is enough to stuff me up) And exercise daily. DIET PLAN FAILED.
Those who don't know me, just imagine me as a Sumo wrestler. Okay, I know that I'm obese to the maximum.
As usual, I rose and shine even when the golden rays of the sun were yet to illuminate the world. Yet, there was something really unusual. I am wearing a SCHOOL UNIFORM! I am officially a Georgina! Yes, I'm currently and officially a Lower Six student in St George Institution. My classmates looked extremely smart in crisply-ironed uniforms.
LONG TIME NO SEE YO!
Okay, that's broken language.
To tell the truth, that was the most weird roll call I have ever seen in my life! The students were required to sing the National Anthem daily, but when the anthem began to play, everyone was as silent as a mouse! The radio was humming to the tune itself though. Back in my school, we Treacherians would have to sing it repeatedly until the authorities got satisfied, if we ever dare to stay quiet in such a way.
"Kenapa Tingkatan Enam Bawah tak menyanyi? Nyanyi lagi sekali!"
哟，真是丢人现脸呐！我们不就是Tingkatan Enam Bawah吗？没关系，再唱一次，这次唱得较有劲些！幸好，校方满意我们唱国歌的状态！（拜托啦，我唱国歌唱到几百几千次了好不好？）
That really made me flush in shame! Weren't we the Lower Six students? It's okay, just sing again, so what? This time, just add some zest and energy into our singing and voila! Fortunately the school authorities were happy, well, at least satisfied of the horrendous way we sang. (Hello, I've sang the National Anthem BILLIONS of times already!)
The way the students return to class? Wow, brand new sight man! WHAT? A commander to the rescue? Are you freaking kidding me? It was an uncanny resemblance to an army camp indeed.
Plus, students would have to make their rows till the corridors during roll-calls. My goodness. Yes, the school shone with regal splendour and it was no different with a castle apparently. What about the interior? (Okay, I know that there were stairs everywhere. Get ready for a workout and sweat-out! HA HA.)
集会完毕，即是Orientation Day 2。妈呀，该校纪律老师一开始就口若悬河地大谈校规、纪律问题等等，连“不尊重老师、巡查员”也视为严重犯罪。这么说，我一到校就严重犯罪了咯！（听致词听到打瞌睡）昏昏欲睡的我，只好伸着脖子，瞪大眼睛看着那些令人眼花缭乱的幻灯片。
The Orientation for Day 2 began shortly after the insane roll call. I totally shut myself of into my world of dreams as the Discipline teacher spoke about those ubiquitous, long-winded list of school rules and regulations, disciplinary problems among students and all. Even "not respecting the teacher and prefects" were considered as serious offence as well. That just simply meant that I've committed offence oat my first day in school! (I dozed off during the speeches. YAWNS!) Stretching out my neck like a giraffe and staring blankly at the Powerpoint presentations, I found it difficult as sleepiness was catching up on me.
Fortunately, it was the prefects' turn after recess, otherwise I would have returned to slumber in the hall.
刚刚开始当然还是沉闷得很的幻灯片咯。巡查员们先是介绍学校悠久的历史（近100年）（喂！我的中学历史比较悠久好不好？1889年成立的叻！）再向我们叽里咕噜地讲解La Salle。La Salle 是什么东西其实我也不太清楚啦，啊哈哈！不过，我知道它是一所天主教学校，当时是专为贫寒子弟而设的。想知道La Salle的来龙去脉吗？点击这里。
It began with the PowerPoint presentations that turned me off from focus. The prefects elaborated on the history of St George Institution which has spanned for almost a century (Hello, my old school survived longer! It was established in 1889!) and the Glorious History of La Salle. I'm pretty unsure what on earth La Salle is. As far as I know, this school was a Catholic School built for underprivileged boys back then. Click here to know what La Salle is all about.
Soon after it was the special La Salle applause. I was unknowingly selected to represent the girls to lead the applause. After a brief lesson from the prefects, boys were against girls to witness whose applause was louder. Well, my cute yet crazy friends chose me simply because I had a loud voice. (Is my bvoie really THAT loud?) Boys versus girls, that's unfair!
"Tepuk La Salle!"
2 times claps, followed by thrice, lastly four times.
I almost mentioned "La Salle" into "Laksa" by mistake, goodness sake.
Tepukan La Salle之后，我们又被教导唱校歌。校歌节奏轻快，一点也没有严肃语气。很好！不过，至今，我竟然连一个歌词也背不到。（其实很好听的咯，起码不会唱到睡觉。）
After that La Salle Applause which was supposed to lift up we new students' spirits towards the school, I mean, regalia, we were taught the school anthem. Light and cheerful, it was definitely an anthem which was fresh and unique, with less seriousness. Nevertheless, i could not remember even a single wod though. (At least it kept us from sleeping!)
