finally, majority of the MUET examination is over... though it didn't really turn out that well... the comprehension was quite hard though... silly mistakes in the listening paper and the essay.. well, didn't know whether answered it correctly anot... cause the required thesis statement was rather confounding..

Anyway, glad it's all over.. the only thing left is the speaking test.. and our mid-year exam is due 3 weeks.. sigh, guess it's just one week per subject and the remaining ones, well.. will just go down the drain... After that dragging morning was over, finally..SLEEP~!!! sighh... i even got lost with time in my beautiful slumber... didn't even realise what day it was when i woke up... lol..

Later, after the sunset mass.. parents decided to go to UDA ocean to do some 'spring shopping'... which was a BIG mistake for me to follow them,... it was a devastating experience there...
first and foremost of all, my parents are there to do some marketing... in which, i have ZERO interest in it.. especially in the supermarket, in which i'll turn into their lackey pushing their trolley around, waiting for them to choose the right fruits to buy... it can be lingering there....

Therefore, i decided to wander around that shopping complex in which i never stepped foot into it for the last few years... everthing seems so new to me - the environment, the shops, etc... I had the impression that it's a 'lepakking' place for the malays, and to my surprise, i find alot of non-malays there too... And there's an umpteen handphone shops there.... both the ground floor and the first floor... it's like an extravaganza of handphone products; lining from the oldest model of every brand to the newest ones.. anyhow, enough of the assets inside the mall...

After roaming the whole shopping centre, (which only took me around half an hour) I went back in searching for my parents.. and the goods they are about to take out.. "WOW!" i think if we stayed there for another 30 minutes, they can fill in another trolley, FULL!... when we reached the cashier not long after, i was like thinking "Finally, get to go home dee". Unfortunately, just when you think that matters couldn't get any worse,there are faults in the cashier outlet... That 'machine' got jammed and we have to wait like for another 15 minutes for the technical support to deal with it... And when you think all was over after that, the free gift section, well, they're out of stock... and there, we have to wait for another additional 10 minutes... Damn, was it frustrating...

After almost 2 hours of getting stuck there (my father said it'll probably take 30 minutes), tardily, there's no other time when i felt the sensation of "home sweet home"... and here i am now, wasting my time, writing super long blogs, playing graffiti till late at night... and exams are just around the corner... sigh... Hope God will provide me the strength to be determined and diligent in my studies...

Another accustomed day for a typical school-life... everything is like so routined.. Oh well, what the heck, what could we expect more in school lifes... The only thing that is at variance today is the major spot check effectuated by the prefects.. Which contributes to alot of 'donations' to the prefectorial board.. I think we can have a jumbo sale on liquid papers; can even afford for a "buy 1 free 2" sale.. (someone confiscated a porn vcd though) *lol*

Chemistry period was another disastrous moment.. The teacher is practically rushing through every single topic;without caring whether the students really understand anot... (but can't blame her though, we never give any response to her,anyway) For aliphatic compounds, it was quite alright to me, more like a revision cause everything has already been taught in tuition.. but for aromatic compounds, damn, it's confusing..

Tardily, our MUET marks finally came into our hands;which was earlier promised to be given to us on Tuesday.. Boon Jin's the only person who got band 6, and two ppl (Jill and Yee Weng) who are at the margin of getting band 6.... i was deceived before for believing that band 5 was to obtain a mark over 80 but relievingly, only a score of 73 and above is needed...

At the end of day, we had our heritage play,which was something that i look forward to release stress out of our school lifes, for it's more like a leisure time for me.. It's partly because i dind't really have any important roles to play, or the need to memorise lines.. All i'm there for is basically for the singing session or perhaps i was involved in it the year before..

I know, today's blog is abit long cause i need to practise my writing skill for my upcoming MUET exams 2 days from now.. (which i dun think is of any help anyway) but at least i do take the trouble to find various words instead of being redundant or being superfluous with my words...

Anyway, guess that's it for now... need a time off liao... till then, see ya...

We have to face the consequences of our doings (the cause and effects)... however, things aren't as bad as you think it is...as they say, "every cloud has a silver lining".. Maybe things happens for a reason.. Probably for the better, i hope..

Anyway, we had an "Info Day" today, that is voluntarily ex-michaelians pays a visit to us and they can share their uni expeiriences with the Upper Sixes.. it's quite interesting though.. listening to their peculiar stories... from what to funding to the clothes that you wear... though didn't last through the whole thing (due to a physics practical which need to be attended - another disaster), i manage to listen to some stories under the "free for all discussion".. managed to get some good tips though... bout crazy lecturers, their exam styles, getting fine for hanging clothes in inappropriate places and stuff... lol....

Then later was literacy, sigh.. another sien case... dun find the purpose of doing so dee... since i dun really see much progress in the students.. but later, after waiting for jill and wei tek, jill and i went to ian's house to do some 'shopping' for Jo's present... (though i'm not really needed there but i'm quite deprived of going out actually)

After a good evening's sleep.. (the weather was so warm btw, thank God for the creation of air-cond) had some private-sms-talk with ei leng while trying to wrap up my physics report.. (in which it failed cause the readings was a total disaster)

by the way, this song i'm listening to is not bad at all.. recommended by boon jin... entitled "The Place I'll Return to Someday" which is also known as "Melodies of Life" (a final fantasy song)

Till then, ciaoz..

just a few minutes ago, i terclick on some 'blog' button and here i am writing one... though i'm not really interested in doing this sort of things.. but what the heck, everyday i online i have nothing to do.. just pure boredom.. just might as well... =)

Sultan's Birthday.. like it really has anything to do with us.. probably made my day a tuition-free day and lots of free time... unfortunately, didn't use it to the best... spend my whole day mainly onlining(typical past time of mine), sleeping and watching "Mona Lisa Smile" that i got from ei leng...

anyway, there's nothing much to say... just some plain old day with nothing better to do... need to study for mid term liao... having a chemistry book on my lap, but serving no purpose cause i'm actually chatting with kian mei and typing this silly blog of mine....

alrite then... gotta go to bed now.. another long day in school tmr.... wish me a good night's sleep.. =)
