30th March Outing (Part 2)

Ah Long Pte Ltd

This is another Jack Neo film which is set out to tickle fellow Malaysians and Singaporeans..
Having some of the same cast as "Just Follow Law", The story sets out to shed some light regarding Ah Longs (illegal money lender).The shows has a vague similarity as the previous film, as the lead female character is a strong female and the male a girly man...

This show is rated 18 PL for various reasons, as many crude and vulgar were used in the conversations, there is a little more blood and gore, plus a scene depicting more nudity than the previous film. As in contrast to his previous film "Just Follow Law", Ah Long Pte Ltd sets out on a different and more controversial film.. Depicting the lead male character as a girly man, whom faces discrimination as a soft person.

This Jack Neo film has change the way he tells his story, showing more action and humor, more than just savvy conversations and harsh words.

I rate this show:
Watch only if you are prepared to accept the crude way of gangster life.. This is not the humorers " Just Follow Law".. This show is rated 18PL for a reason...

Tea at Plus Shabu Shabu

Japanese Steam Boat:
This is the first time I ate Japanese steam boat, please note that I have ate chinese steam boat, lok lok from the back of the truck and even having 1 at home plus grill too..
As 4 of us, Mel, Kelly, Jun Long (Issit Jun or Yun??) and me, decided to eat something after the movie. Although all of us was not that hungry because of the pop corn, cheese rings and not enough sleep..

The place has good ventilation for a close air space, has a high ceiling plus good service... The waiters and waitress were kind and helpful.. As the guy help me with the conduction induction heater which is written in some foreign tongue that i can't read.. The food is roughly RM20++ bucks per person, giving that they serve you a standard dish of vegies noodles,1 big prawn,etc and a special dish which you can choose between beef, fish and others... Given that the portion of the food was so so for RM20 bucks.. They give you a standard dish with a soup of choice which can be refilled with a press of a button.. Drinks however, is served per jug.. Which is 1.5 liters... All was well except that the sour plum thingy that we ordered requires "acquired taste". As this being a Japanese steamboat, there was less chance of oily-chopstick-coated-with-saliva fishing through meat in a big pot...
This place is neat for those people whom do not like steamboat because of the saliva-sharing-stuff.. For big eaters and those who prefer variety of choises, All you can steamboat wins hands down...

Yes, All of us had different shapes of jelly...
The various sauces available for picking
Girls taking picture of their desert, Mel had a heart shape jelly..
Spending a few minutes slicing the jelly apart with her fork..
Urm... *Kelly looks on Mel still slicing that pudding

The day is not over yet...

After Jun Long left for a COD:4 Clan tourney, I bumped into Christine at MPH... Taken this oh-so-weird-looking picture in the taxi on the way back..

Day end..

29/30th Weekender

Saturday Night:
-Double Surprise-
Ernest came back from NS due to the knee injury symptoms... Well.... His NS was shortened to 2 weeks in stead of 3 months.. From his comments: The NS camp in Kerteh was located on the beach... by the sea.... and next to a hill.... This is more like a National Service Resort than a camp... Well, and they had the occasional stingray for dinner.... Ikan Pari pangang in NS... Now i so feel like going... Anyhows... He's back from the service and i don't think they'll call him back...

Thus, on Saturday... We went to Tbun, our local Cyber getaway... Yes, more COD4: Modern Warfare.. Besides that, the LYNK decided to turn up for some WARGHH... We greeted them with MP5's, Grenades, and all sorts of COD4 weapons arsenal... Thanks to Aaron for supplying the various modification that did help us in the game....

At 10.. We went to Richards to collect my long awaited 2 box of Cadian Shock Troops.... Yes, now I have to spend time to fix up the collection of bodies that await their assembly....

And finally, we went to SS2 together to get some steamboat and herbal tea... Then, As the guys sent me back.. Seems that everyone at home was asleep... and i had to ring the doorbell a couple of times to get any responds.. Thus i did some cha -cha dance in front of the house, while the guys were laughing frantically in the car

*Slept at 1, spending time fixing up the first men from the box..

30th December: (Part 1)

Yes, I didn't go to the pet exhibition in midvally.. Well, in turn i caught Ah Long Pte Ltd in 1U at the 1.30 curtain..

Melisa was so kind to pick me up from home at 10.30 with kelly in the car with her.. Then we headed to Jun Long's place... And then to 1U...

First Meal of the day: Robert Harris at 1 Utama.. (A place not to eat)

Yes, this meal is the most dramatic meal that i ever had that cost RM60 bucks for 4 people...

At the start, we were served by a middle aged old woman whom had a serious attitude problem.. Fine, i know its early in the morning and every one has their days... So this middle aged waiter took our order with what little brain cells she has: 1 spicy spaghetti, 1 very spicy spaghetti, and a chicken barbecue. Drinks were 2 esprit, 1 orange juice and a lime juice... Easy??

Then the drinks came.. All were in order, so far so good.. Then she started setting the table with cutlery.. She stood at 1 end of the table and furiously set down the cutlery and hurry off... Er?? *What was with this women??*

Then after waiting for 5 minutes, the food came... First to arrive was the very spicy spaghetti, she did say: "This is very spicy" which was not that spicy... Then after a few minutes only did the real very spicy spaghetti came, and she place it on the table and hurried off..

Okay, so we complained to another staff. Which she accepted the comment and apologize for the inconvenience caused. I was still wondering where did my barbecue chicken went?? I was already waiting for 15 minutes... Besides that, A table that came later than us was already feasting through their sandwich...

Then, a male waiter came and told me that they forgotten to key chicken order into the PC, and they are doing it now.. It'll take 5 minutes, then he hurried off... I waited for 5 minutes, nibbling some of Mel and Kelly's spicy spaghetti..

Then i took it to the counter, I don't want that chicken no more.... I was actually surprise to see the reaction on the staff's face.. They actually glared back at the customers!?!? Woot!!! Plus the male attendant threated to put the chicken in the bill... Wow.. Strong words from a restaurant staff... I told them that i won't pay for the chicken as i canceled it before it came... So leaving the staff pissed and me no happier.. I went back to the table...

To my disbelief, the guy actually came up strong and insisted i took the chicken.. The manager hurried over trying to settle the issue... I told the manager that i won't accept the chicken as they came late, and the girls had already finish eating.. She apologize for the mistake and hurried off... Then, WAMB!! The guy waiter threw the plate of chicken into the bin showing his anger....

We finished the last bits of the food and paid the bill to leave.. The thing is, how are we to ask for the bill as all the waiters and waitress are gathering at the front counter?? We actually have to wave frantically for them to realize that we want the bill... Pissed off at that darn place.. We left for some Baskin Robbins..... Before we left, I saw the restaurant manager actually moping up the Barbecue sauce that was spill on the floor by the male waiter...

Thirds on Driving

The Third Driving Lesson:
27/3/08 (Thursday)
This time, the class started at 1pm in the hot afternoon.. To my surprise, the driving instructor came early. Right on the dot of 1pm.
So, the instructor let me drove the car at the start. Usually, for the last 2 classes.. I would only drive when we've reach the place to practice in Manjalara. This time i had to drive, not to manjalara, but to the Driving examination HQ that is located in Sentul... Firstly, I have yet to figure out how to work the clutch smoothly on the road.. Besides that, I didn't know the way there... So, imagine how a L license drive studders on the heavy traffic Kepong main road, All the way to Jalan Kuching round about, Then to Jalan Sentul.... *THIS IS MADNESS!!!!*
Luckily, the madness only lasted 15 minutes, giving that i was driving at the fastest of 40Km/h.. But i reached the destination nontheless...
Then I was chilling out in the air conditioned front desk for the registration for drivers to be... My instructor then told me: "Er.... You want to take your Exam ASAP right???, You can take fastest on the 15th. Only Monday or Tuesday. Tell me 1 week in advance. And retake is RM150"
(Retake is RM150!!! OMG!!! I can do much more with the money than using it to pay their already inflated salary...) 'Er.. I think I'll tell you when I'm ready for the exam la... Don't need to rush.. I'll pay you for the extra driving lessons'
After 20 minutes of chilling, we headed back to the training ground... This time, they had hill climb challenge.. First, Side parking.... First Reverse to the pole parallel to the C pillar of the car, Then turn 1 and a half to the left, reverse until 6 poles are visible... Then reverse straight until the back wheel is on the white line... Max the steering to the right... Reverse as close as possible to the pillars... Then take a max left... And we are in the box!!! Reverse to the poles again, Turn right with the steering for 3 times and exit the box... Finish...
As this place have been used for so many drivers taking their test.. The tar from the ground have been eroded.. So when you're in place, the car just stays...
Now, tackling the 3 point turn... Vroom vroom vroom... Done... Nothing to worry about.. As long as i remember to balance the clutch..
Uphill challenge.. I cannot explain how i loathe this damn thing... Although i know its compulsory.. You tend to hate it.. Giving that the 600cc of a kancil has problem climbing that incline of5 degrees... Yes, I didn't make it right the first time.. Neither did i get it right on the second try... Took me a couple of minutes of the instructor pointing and me nodding to get the car right in place.. and it wasn't perfect... Seesh... I need more training...
Having done that close circuit for 50 minutes... We left for the office... Driving back was not such a headache.. I manage to solve the clutch + accelerator balancing act thingy.. but 600cc is still a drag.. Anyways... I made it back without much problem..

Next Class: Tuesday 10am

L change the WorLd

Date: 26th March 2008
Venue: GSC @ Midvalley Megamall
Official release date: April 3rd 2008

Firstly, i would like to thank Nuffnang, Columbia Pictures Malaysia, GSC and all to provide such an interesting event to us fellow bloggers.

-L change the world-

Synopsis from the press kit:

To solve the KIRA Case, L (Kenichi Matsuyama) leaves Los Angeles for Japan as Kira is in Japan 97% of the time. At the same time, his intuition tells him that he may never again return to Los Angeles.

Known as Kira, Light Yagami (Tatsuya Fujiwara) uses the Death Note to attempt to become God of a criminal-free new world. L tries to end the case by revealing Kira’s true identity. As the ferocious battle of wits between the two geniuses is about to reach the climax, a small village in Thailand is exterminated. Everything is incinerated as if to destroy any traces that the village has ever existed. What happened here?

The KIRA case closes but L loses his mentor, Watari (Shunji Fujimura). Watari had established the Wammy’s House where L grew up and was L’s most trusted partner. His unpredicted death leaves L devastated. In the 23 days that he has left in the human world, L takes on the task of solving the cases left by Watari even though he was plagued by the enormous loss. As all the cases get solved, a ‘gift’ addressed to Watari arrives. This ‘gift’ turns out to be a little boy. From the SD card that the taciturn BOY (Narushi Fukuda) has in his possession, L learns that the child is the only survivor of the already exterminated Thai village. L also discovers the conspiracy behind the Thai village tragedy with the use of a man-made “God of Death”.

L has another visitor, this time, a girl. Her name is Maki (Mayuko Fukuda) and she tells L that her father had asked her to deliver something to Watari before he died a horrible death. As L realizes that the item brought in by the girl is indeed the “God of Death” in question, pursuers are closing in. In order to protect the 2 children, L has to take physical action. Physical? Yes, the realm that L is not known to operate nor excel in!

My comments:

If you are a fan of L from the death note series, this is a must watch show. If you hadn't had much interest in the death note series, but thinks that the character L is amusing, different and sometimes weird. Then this show is a show for you. As the title shows, L is the main focus of the story. Although the English title is "L change the WorLd", If i am not mistaken the Japanese version is L and the last 23 days. Which i find the Japanese title more suiting to the show. As Death Note is a movie based on the famous manga, L change the WorLd is based on the last 23 days of L from Death Note 2 : The Last Name. This allowed the director and scriptwriter unlock huge amount of creativity without changing the main story, as long as its within 23 days.. and 23 days is a long time..

Movie rating= Worth the watch, more if you like the character L

More Pictures from the movie:
Do you know what's this??

L prepares to jump!!

Seconds on driving

Second driving lesson on Monday 24/3/08..
Well, the class starts at 10. The driving instructor being very well Malaysian only turned up at 10.20.. Never mind that, as i have had better sleep and i had a little lesson a few days before.
I was reversing the savvy with my brother in the passenger side, it did taught me on handling the car and boosting an amount of confidence in driving...
So, we then took of to the usual driving spot in a parking lot near Menjalara.. Then the instructor came out and let me take the wheel... (yippie) Being more prepared this time.. I took my time in adjusting the seat and mirrors and all... Then it was the usual 3-point-turn... After practicing the whole play in my mind for the whole night... Yes, i did it easily... No problem at all.. Hooray for me, i exit the box with a wide smile across my face.. The driving instructor was so so, and called me to take the 3-point-turn for another 2 time... Practice makes perfect, and i was driving with a wider smile on my face...
Then the instructor came out of the car to show me the side parking... Herm... side parking... Ok, i had to admit... This was not so easy.. I had a problem on getting the wheel position right, (*conversion in Cantonese) He was like: Left!! Left!! That's Right!! Turn Left!!! Now, 1 & 1/2 circle to the Right!!... Gheese... I was baking in that piece of kancil, and he was giving orders out in the sun.. Urgh.. More sticks and boxes.... The funniest part was reversing towards the sticks at the back of the box.. This was mainly taught by my family(bro, sis, mom, dad) as they all drive... Staying in BU11 has caused many inconveniences due to parking, so we derived the habit of parking 2 smaller cars in front of the house very close together.... A habit remains a habit unless you change it.. Reversing up close to the sticks without knocking them over was really fun, especially with the instructor out there saying : Brake!! Brake!!!.. I returned the gesture in a wide smile plus a fairly good side parking..
After the parking.. He decided to get into the side and let me drive back to the office.. Hurm.. why not?? its the second lesson after all.. But wait.. Its a 5 minute drive with uphills, downhills, high-speed-corners, Major traffic light and the very inconvenient right turn along a heavy traffic main road... That shouldn't be that bad, giving the time was 12... Lunch time rush hour... Maintaining at 40km/h was a real drag.. Not only did the car behind me was closing very fast.. I was leaving a huge space in front of me that can fit almost any moving vehicle without a problem... Uphill was fun, while i had to release the accelerator on downhill.. (Like anyone on the road is doing that) Traffic light... Well, having going through the other obstacles.. This was the last 1... Only that there's a lorry right in front of me.. and then Green Light!!! and the car didn't die.. neither did it move... I didn't release the clutch fast enough, and was revving the engine in first gear.. Then the instructor panicked, called me to hurry through although it was a yellow light... who gives, his nerve was already rattled.. Then it was smooth sailing all the way back to office... The occasional pod-hole evasion was fun too....

Thus, my second driving lesson ended....

Next class: Wednesday at 10

Ladies's Afternoon..

Happy faces

Lynn Li was back from Singapore for a 2 weeks holiday.. Since we've haven't seen each other for like an age... There's the lunch picture that my maid took...
Lunch was at 12... Other than me, Maine, Melia and Ann... others were like kinda late....
So i took the time to slice the rest of the meat that I've forgotten do..
Anyways.. We went up and "visited" the rest of the house.... Which they were very fond of my room..*Just keep what you've seen there to yourself ya!!*
After that, We've started the main course of Teppanyakki.. Then, 1 by 1 the rest started coming.... We've continued to chat over lunch.. then Germaine had to leave for church....
When lunch was finished... We've went another round of room searching... Ended up cosing on the bed in my room talking all sorts of stuff that came to mind.... Well, i really really had fun...
Then we went down for desert.. And suddenly.. *Woosh* all decided to leave at the same time.. Leavine Jo, Lynn and me plus cky to chat over the cake :p
Anyhow.... after cky had left... Lynn, me and Jo went to 1U and check out the place... Arcade was good.... Somehow, i loved the drums the most XD.... More walking around.... Oh, we did visited the reptile conversion/show/what-ever-la-thingy.... It was just looking at animals caged up... Hurm, feels kind of heartless looking at them.. and i contributed RM8 for this act... (shame on me) anyhow... We left after that, and Lynn's relative pick her up from my place....

Tada.. Day end...

p.s: Urm... when we wanna have another pot luck again??? message me.. and Girls whom left containers at my place, when you want em back?? Maybe we can stay loooooonnnnnggggerrrr at my place so i can return the containers on the same day... Please inform me ya...

The First Steps..

Okay, From now on... I should stop yapping, pointing and occasionally complain about other people's driving....
Driving is serious business

Today, i took my first driving lesson... As i didn't really have enough sleep from the traveling the previous day.. The instructor park in a quiet part of a Petronas station, and i began my class...
In half dazed mind, i was instructed to get familiar with the controls, stepping around between the 3 peddles of the car.. Clutch, Brake, Accelerator (minyak), Clutch, brake, minyak, clutch, brake, minyak, clut- again and again.....
After leaving me there to meddle between the peddle for about 20 minutes... The instructor came back to start with the basics of moving front and back.... More clutch, brake and minyak again i thought.. Then he said: "Don't touch the minyak!!!" Uh.. Okay... Then release more clutch... BRAKE!!! moving the car up down, up down for another few minutes....
He then said "move up to the street" I was like.. WooOt!? First day?? on the street??? OMG!!! Luckily,(for the pedestrians) We just moved to a local parking lot which was a common place for driving practices...
Started with 3 point turn... Move, until the second pole.. Then turn right. Stop. Reverse. Stop again.. Then move out of the box.. Yippie... First try done without any glitches... 2nd round.. He called for a stop.. then got out of the car.. and call me to repeat the last few steps...
Okay.. Move..... Right..... Brake!!!!... Still not reach the pole yet...... Then reverse...... urm... reverse??? move?? *stomp on the clutch and release again* Puff!!! Mati engine...
From then on... The first day practically went down the drain.. Continues in circles and trying that darn 3 point turn for the umpteen time... Yet... I'd didn't get it right like the first time....
As my facial expression started to change, signs of struggling with the 4 wheel machine became more and more obvious.. More over, the Gods decided to shine on me today.. Giving me no less brightness of the sun.... Sweating and Stressed up in that small vehicle... The instructor came and said: "Er.. Sit to the other side a....."
The class ended there... Without much satisfaction of driving... I was sent back to office...

Next class : Wednesday at 10
Changed to Monday at 10

-Recent Happenings-

Looking back at the results of the SPM,
I got what i deserverd,
"What will be, will be.."
Besides that, I have a week or 2 of facing various people that harass me over the results.. Not in a bad way though, it just shows that everybody cares and want to be apart of people who have good results...
Any how, after I got my results i went to see ask about my future..(No, i did not went and see a fortune tell) Instead, the new PK1 whom was our beloved Pn.Kee.... Pn.Kee was kind and generous to answer my various questions and i clearly was hogging her time, which she was suppose to use to do something more productive...
Well, for what i know about Form 6... That it only starts in MAY!!! And now i have lot of time on my hands.... Good thing is, SMKT is a feeder school for Kota Damansara Seksyen 10 for what i heard.. Now the decision is whether to that school or change to other more famous school like Samad or T.Sea. (Catholic has been removed for various reasons)
Feel free to drop your 2 cents in the box!!

2 People apart from me..........yet close
Here's to you...
Avi & Amelia

I didn't notice the 2 A's are posing in the same picture.. XD
Avi: Tall, Handsome, Devil's Charm, great manners, smartness without doubt. Once, our lives shared the same paths(To school, back home, then to school again). Then the time came where you started to ascend up the ladder of life... While i linger around.. The future holds bounty full for us both.. No matter how far apart we are in the ladder of life.. The bonds of friendship bound us together...
Btw, Thanks so much for coming to the party with us.. The cake was really nice, although we were already too full.. (thanks to the over-eagerness at the start). Seriously, when you sent the message to me about asking what i want for my birthday. I thought i did something wrong and you were looking for some explanation or a fight.. Congrats on your SPM results and hope you get that scholarship you were aiming for... Keep in touch..

Amelia: Smart, Witty, Friendly and Warming.. Sometimes demanding (while screaming her head off)... Yet, she always pulls through every hurdle... and feels great about it at the end.. Close to god, she seldom loose her way.. but often spend too much time thinking & worrying about a choice.Then again, the choice she made was always right.. If not, its the lesser of 2 evils..
Wish you luck in HELP, and your love for literature bring more flavors into your life...
As we may part our ways in life.. Its the stains of the tears, blood, sweat, spills and the occasional stains of sauce that reminds us the time we had.....
Sorry for coming up with something so late, but i have to write this with all my skills and grace, because i know for sure
you will read this...

OMG!!! Accident...

"As eagerly as i can, I was opening the door and "Wamb!"
An event that was really shocking, I really didn't know opening the door could cause so much damage... Accidents are not your best of friends and neither do people look forward to them.. To all my friends that drives (or taking their class/exam what-so-ever) ALWAYS be more careful and alert on the road.. Accidents happen without warning..

-An accident- (happened on the 10th March 08)

It started when me and my mom was on the way to the bank. As both of us was in a hurry, because she had to bank in some urgent checks while i was going to get a ATM card of my own.
Besides that, we had to drop a check to a local grill(not food) maker whom we owed. As his shop was right next to a traffic light beside the main road, I thought it wouldn't be necessary to drive in as it was just a simple drop-and-go. So as the light turn red, we nicely stop right in front of the shop on the main road. As eagerly as i can, I was opening the door and "Wamb!"

"Aiyo!!" was the only thing i heard at the spur of the moment blurt by mom.. Then only i had realized i had clipped a motorcyclist with the door. The poor man was already half lying on the side of the road, with his motorcycle between his legs. Quickly, i moved him further inner the pavement to reduce the danger of the traffic. I did move him a little, enough to free him from his bike. Then the grill maker came out and gave a helping hand, as i was not moving the bike with all my effort. He pushed it away.

I hurried to the downed man, he was clearly in shock. He could hardly acknowledge us to our furies of question. We then waited for him to get to his senses, then we accompanied him to the nearest clinic. Thanks to the calmness and patience of the grill boss that manage to help us get the injured man to the clinic that fast. His motorcycle was kept at the store for the time being.

I quickly brought the man to the clinic for emergency attention. The doctor was kind enough to look to the mans wounds first and let the other non-so-urgent patients wait. The doctor then told us that he was not in any immediate danger, He too mentioned that the vein and tendon of the leg was not injured and the wound on his leg was just a flesh wound. The doctor asked to be left alone with the patient as he cleans his wound.

As we waited out side the treatment room, I was pondering on so many "what-if?" that would have change the situation for the better, or for worst.. My mom didn't grumble much as it was really an accident and all of us was at fault for this unwanted incident. Then the doctor asked for an audience with us after 10 minutes.. He told us that the old man was resting while the Anastasia was taking effect on his leg, he would need to sew 2 layers of flesh as the cut was deep and it could take some time. The doctor asked us to attend to urgent business and as this would take some time. Thus, I went and apologized to the old man again and again before leaving for the errands that we were suppose to do..

After attending to the required errands (I did not get my ATM card today as it wasn't the right time) we went back to the clinic. The old man was in much better conditioned than before, his face was not that pale and he's not feel that bad any more. The then doctor gave a briefing on the various do's and don't to the old man. We were then called to wait outside as the nurses prepare the medications. I exchanged names and phone number with the old man as a we could be contacted in case anything further happens. Soon after, we were given the medication for the man and the bill. We sent the old man back to his house, which was a 5 minutes drive nearby.

On the way, my mom spoke hokkien as her mandarin was not well verse. The old man was so calm even after the sewing of his wound, he didn't utter a single word of who's fault it was, he didn't even scold me for being careless. I feel very sorry for the old man to cause such hurt, but he did express his gratitude for being so responsible after causing the incident. We sent him into his house, and gave his wife a short story of what happened. His wife was looking after 2 small children for a living, she was so kind not to blow her temper to either me or the old man. She was so concerned yet not over reacting to the situation. We then explained to the old man regarding the medications and all. He was very calm and well verse on his diabetic and hypertension situations. He speaks hokkein, mandarin and even english. We left soon after that...


As it was just 2 days before, i was celebrating my birthday with all my friends. Receiving the plenty of presents and well wishes. This event today teaches me to be more responsible and alert in any situation, especially on the road as life is precious. As i am waiting for my L license to be released, I find this situation a very clear reminder on how accidents can caused injuries or even kill another person.
Please be careful on the road...

-sorry for not updating the birthday's post, but i think this was more important-

IT'S COMING.... It's Coming......

-The Calm before the Storm-

There's a long wait... As a nation wait to seek its chance for change.... To cast their votes for whom they believe have the right to lead... For whom future they trust their hands in.... They wait...

For some... Its not time to give up, to let go... But to continue fighting and campaigning to claim the trust of the people.. For they believe they stand above other.... They fight....

Some others continue the endless task their lives.. Without care about the hype and news that stir within the local community...

For some close to me... Tomorrow is not about polling... Its not about the gifts and the hoohah.... Its about a gathering.... A gathering of 16 people whom were once a class of 29... 16 souls who manage to get together, look each other in the face and laugh about it... Its been 2 months We've last met.. Its been longer since we've shared the same table...

I wait.... I fight.... fighting the urge to scream the coming to tomorrow to be faster and stop keeping me waiting.... But the day is not about me... its about friendship, love and a relationship worth keeping no matter the cost...
the day is not about me.... Its about friendship, love and a relationship worth keeping no matter the cost.....

As i key the words down... Rain drop drizzle on the glass window.. Flushing away the agony of despair.. The despair of time.... The sands of time flow... Flowing through the funnel of the glass.. Slowly... Time passes...

By the time the clock strike 8 in the morning... I will be finally a person who walk the realm of this world for 18 solar years.... The mark of 18 will be engraved in my mind's heart... "Who cares if the sky falls, earth crumbles or what-so-ever.. For I will not... For this 24 hours.. The world revolves around me.."

-Kim Yoong in his own world-

As i was pretty free to cook up this post, i found some time to in fill some words i found interesting from the dictionary..

Sauce: 1. Liquid or viscous accompaniment to a dish
2. Something adding piquancy or excitement
3. Impudence, impertinence or cheek(as in cheeky)

Dustman: a person who collects household refuse (previously known known to me as dustbin-man)

Yuva: Congrats on the luxurious trophy that you won on the last Warrgh... Smart person whether on gaming or studying.. Only physical strength can stop this guy (seriously)..

I know deep inside, you still like girls :P.. Go straight, don't be a queer...

Pn.Loi : Teacher.....

Jo Sze: Calm, Smart, Otaku, Good sense of humor and the occasional stoning in class... I didn't really know any girls that were into Football and F1 racing.. that's till i know that you're more fluent in them than me.... Keep in touch, where ever you go....

Sakina: When i remember you, i can't stop remembering those sexy and very scantly dressed men that were the frequent conversion between you and Lynn Li.. but that was almost 4 years ago.. Still the memories are there.... Since Hasyim is also an Otaku, will you ever get along with him??

I feel that you've always fitted the shoe of damsel in distress, fumbling while waiting for your price to take you up on his golden steed... Smart, Hardworking, being friends with you cannot be any more joyous... Take life easy, maybe our path would cross again in Form 6... Have a break, Have a Kit-Kat!!!

Maine: Smart, energetic, strong, and a lively company.. A perfect example of having the looks, the brains and the skill.... (Often mistaken as a bimbo) Yet, she is very emotional and passionate..

Well, This brother is a must have wish-list friend.. He'll turn up when you are in need in any corner of your life (maybe that's because we stay not far from each other).. He's often a traditionalist, great joker, and so many more things about him that makes him... HIM!!! Will truly miss you as you'll be leaving for NS....
