A little bit of this and that

Reader’s challenge –

Decipher the Malay short hand below!

Ker Lei and I had a bit of trouble with it.

(Yeah the words in the brackets are Ker Lei’s own addition.)

If you were able to decipher the message, you’d know that 5S6 would not manage to get their class shirts before graduation.

Sorry you guys.

We really tried.

Fighter One and Fighter Two both have crushes on LadyLike.

After a bit of (civilized) fighting, Fighter One managed to get LadyLike to go to the prom with him.

During school.

Fighter One is doing his homework, minding his own buisiness.

Fighter Two is a metre away, staring out the window at God-knows-what, also minding his own buisiness.

Tactless Guy comes along and says to Fighter Two (rather loudly), “Eh you know, if you weren’t going on vacation then, Ladylike said she’d go to the prom with YOU.”

Fighter Two looks at Tactless Guy, all wide-eyed, finger frantically jabbing at the air towards Fighter One, with that Shit-Not-Right-Now! expression.

Fighter One looks up from his book, stares at Tactless Guy and shows him the middle finger from both hands in that very ganas way.

Tactless Guy blinks a bit, and goes, “Oh. Sorry. Didn’t see you there.”

Then he walks off.

And the interesting thing is, they’re all pretty good friends.

Pretending that I have been a very active blogger all this while, I’mma say that I won’t be blogging for the entire week-long holidays.

I’m taking pretty extreme measures as a last resort to get myself to start studying.

(Only START studying you know, not CONTINUE studying harder.)

I’ll be moving into Times Square!

With my family up till Tuesday, and on my own from then onwards.

No computer + Astro-less TV = Not having to deal with distractions!

I read an account of another classmate/blogger’s experience of being alone in KL, and it was really unlucky she had to go through all that awful stuff.

But really, being alone on the streets of KL usually only spells two things – FREEDOM and FUN!

Back then Times Square was our makeshift home for an entire month during the renovation period. My parents would be out during the day, and I had to travel on my own all the way back to PJ for my tuition classes.

I’d always sneak out two hours early just so I could wander around KL for a bit by myself.

I did kind of got lost once, but the Indian shopkeeper lady was more than helpful in showing me the directions.

My parents never found out about my little escapades (and thank goodness for that!), for if they had they wouldn’t be agreeing to another week of myself being alone again.

Only it’s such a pity that I’d be there to STUDY, ’cause it would’ve been so fun to wander around again.

You would not believe the amount of time I spend studying.

Nisbah STUDY TIME kepada RELAXATION TIME = 1 : 10

No kidding.

As seen on one of those coloured papers that everyone is being subjected to write at this time of the year –

“Learn to chill la. I dunno why you get so stressed over those unnesecary stuff, like homework and exams.”

And during an MSN conversation with the same person –

“You studying?”

“Nope. You?”

“Me of course not la. Those are unnecasery stuff lah.”

And he wasn’t even trying to be funny. He was being serious.

Ahhhh if only!

For the knowledge of everyone….

pov·er·ty (pŏvər-tē)

  1. The state of being poor; lack of the means of providing material needs or comforts.
  2. Deficiency in amount; scantiness: “the poverty of feeling that reduced her soul” (Scott Turow).
  3. Unproductiveness; infertility: the poverty of the soil.
  4. Renunciation made by a member of a religious order of the right to own property.

This is from Answers.com. My copy of Oxford dictionary on my desk tells me the same thing.

Hahaha, so it IS pronunced POH-verty!

(Manwir is still wrong.)

Blogger Beta now has a labelling option!

The only gripe I ever had about blogger was that I never could sort posts into categories. Now I can!

And the spellcheck is much, MUCH easier to use.

(One reason why you find spelling errors all over my posts is because I am too lazy to bother looking up the correct spellings for words I can never spell.)

Ultimately, Blogger is still the best.

If you’re using Xanga *cough* or WordPress *cough*, come back to Blogger!

You won’t find yourself regretting it.

I can’t remember when was the last time I did not get a ‘C’ for my Chinese papers.

AHH that ‘C’ pretty much ruined my forecast result slip! I memang tak suka.

If I have not been able to get even an ‘A’ or a ‘B’ for my school exams for as long as I can remember, what makes me think I can get anything better than a ‘C’ in SPM?

Or better yet, at the rate I’m studying, what makes me think I can get an ‘A’ in any of my subjects?

9 days to graduation.

Then we’ll be college-bound kids adults!

Till then, adios!
