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...
