What’s the most dreadful word?

15 Jul

Hey, people! Yours truly is back with a brand new post…. and his attempt to revive his oh-so-dead blog….

Crap, I guess God has been hinting to constantly update my blog but I couldn’t allocate any time, so I think He decided to drop the bomb on me today…

No no,,,, not the “f” bomb, mind you…

It’s the message from 15888… What’s that you say?  Before I reveal to you, let me be a little long-winded with the whole dreaful process…

As you know, I am the Fifth Former, currently studying in Chung Ling High School, and being one of them means that I would have a 50/50 chance to get selected into National Service or PLKNm as they say…

What’s National Service? It’s a very good place for us to train physically and to truly understand the meaning of “1Malaysia”  with 3 different main races, all joined into one centre to have fun….

Did I type as if I enjoy the whole process?

Well, being nervous I was, I immediately sent a message to 1588, to check whether I’ve been seleceted for this camp…. Well turns out…

TANIAH! ANDA TELAH DIPILIH UNTUK…

I seriously thought I could faint at that moment… Whatsoever… I waited for 45 minutes just to get this message sent back to me…. Gosh, this should be the only time that I wished that people could say “MINTA MAAF” to me…

Not to mock anyone or anything… but I guess that being a more artistic person (selling yourself, Brandon?), I don’t think I really fit into this whole physical process…. I’m started to have nightmares and all those concepts about how dreadful this camp could turn out… And and… the food? I’m concerned about the food… What if they give me so little to eat that I ended up crying in bed… Maybe this should be the time that “Glee” plays the role…. I can sing freely with background music coming out from nowhere…

Hah… fine… enough of me venting out my anger…. I think I should really accept what has been given to me, and to just face it…. No matter how long I want to delay this process, it can still haunt me…. argh…..

Sorry

This is my second song played on the piano. I actually compile all my written song into albums, but of course it’s not going to be released like the real ones in the market. I don’t play the songs with any scores, I just have the melody in my mind, so the more i practice, the more I’m familiar with my own song.

I composed this song when I was hurt by one of my friends. You know, I trusted him as my good friend, but the favour I got in return was very disappointing. Grow an extra eye to help judge what kind of friends you are hanging out with.

Hope you guys enjoy this song. 🙂

CrossRoads

21 Feb

Occasionally when a melody struck in my mind, I will probably hum it out and write the lyrics. I never played my songs on the piano, until my good friend, Chin Chern, inspired me to play the melody on the piano. He writes soothing music that I really like a lot.

This song, CrossRoads, is written because I feel that being a teenger, we are bound to meet up with crossroads that we need to decide. Just like the poem “The Road Not Taken”, we need to choose only one of the many roads, and we must choose that road wisely, as it will determine your future. This song is purely my composition, so I hope you guys like the song. The chords are very simple, it revolves around the F major key.

Enjoy, people!

Gurney Outing

19 Feb

Finally I am out of the house… This year’s Chinese New Year is so scorching hot that I need to switch on my air-conditioner every single night. I can’t stand the heat and I certainly don’t work well under extreme heat. I’m out with the usual gang, plus some additional guests.

Let me list out: Shaun, Jayden, Chin Chern, Sparrow, Autumn, Chee Yang, Edmund, Jeremy, Sky and Yan Kai. Did I miss out anyone? Hopefully I did not…

We are vaining in the car… and obviously I’m still not convinced that I look younger with spectacles… blek >.<

First of all… no one is feeling the New Year mood, as I am practically the only one who was wearing red… Where’s the spirit, you guys? We went to Gurney to have a little reunion with our ex-Geograrphy teacher, Miss Yeap Yee Pei. She is a very caring teacher, who carries a sense of humour in the class. Too bad she got transferred to Terranganu… T.T

You probably have seen her before, because I shot with her during a debate competition in Batu Pahat.. 🙂

We had lunch at Swensen… and guess what? I left early to head to Sake Sushi to have a little chit chat with two of my good friends or shall I say couples?

Mr and Mrs Orange! lol…

The girl on the left is Lee May and the one on the right is Zhi Cheng… They are really sweet and the way they mingle with each other during lunch was quite fun to watch. Hey, this is my first time being a lamp post but since they don’t mind, so I might as well sit with them to talk.

This picture with Lee May is probably the first time I’m taking this shot with a girl. No jokes. I never got so close to a girl before to take pictures, because I think I’m shy… T.T lame… Don’t you think they are so caring and loving with each other, huh?

SURPRISE, LEE MAY! I saved the picture you shared with me… wakakax

CUTE! Don’t kill your brother, Lee May. 😀

We watched “Percy Jackson and The Lighting Thief” and I got to say that being a slight fan of Greek mythology actually pays off when you watch this movie. Though the plot is a bit predictable, but I got to say that it’s still a good movie to watch, worthwhile. I thought the lead male actor looked like Zac Efron and the lead female actor look Selena Gomez…

Anyways, thanks guys so much for making this Gurney outing so fun to be… 🙂 Love you all!

God bless and peace out.

Update

4 Feb

vain3

I just realized that I haven’t update my blog for a long time… woots… The picture above is taken from Chien Ming, and he is an aspiring amateur photographer, but is currently improving his skills. I am always his model whenever he brings his baby to school…

It’s going to be a total random-ness in the post…

First of all, thanks to Lee Choo Hock, most of my female friends are addressing me as Shannon Yeoh! Great job, Mr Lee. So he was actually calling Chanel to answer his question but he saw me who knew the answer, so he called Sha-ndon… then it became SHANNON! T.T But hey, the good thing is, I am talking to more female friends in MSN now… all because of Shannon… wakakakax…

I’m so afraid of SPM… T.T Don’t know how will I do. I want to do my best, but I am not sure if I can manage to stay on top for long…

I will probably blog more if there is anything interesting, but in the mean time, do study hard, my friends… 🙂

God bless!

Christmas Greetings!

25 Dec

MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you and to all of your family, fellow readers!

I’ve just received the letter from school about my school results. Ok, I’ve checked the Internet before then, I even check it every 1 hour just to check my overall position and to which class I was going to be in Form 5. I will be studying in 5SA2. Hopefully the teachers are experienced to teach me since it’s the last year and for preparation for the infamous SPM.

Speaking about SPM, I’m so stressed just to even think about it. I always wonder how will I perform during the exam which will be imminent in 11 months’ time. All the revision, all the homework, like it’s starting to build on me even early on this year 2010.

This year has been a crazy year for me. I was so depressed at many times, but I just have to call out to the Lord, even within a short, small prayer, I just pray that He can give me His strength onto me that with His guidance, I can still  walk through this year.

What I’m nervous about next year, is the teacher mainly. I don’t want to get the useless ones, or the senior teachers who takes everything for granted. SPM is quite important because it can determine your future. Most jobs requires you to have a legal distinction in SPM…

Let us do a recap on my 2009 life:-

One of the most memorable competition I entered was Debate. Here are a few links that are about Debate:-

Opinions about Debate

Debate Celebration

Personally, I think that debate has really bring out the competitive side in everyone on stage. Through I share little passion towards debate, I still think that entering this competition gives me an experience and memory that I will not forget with my friends. Debate may not be what I like the most, but at least it has given me something that money can’t buy. 🙂

2010 will be a very busy year for Fifth Formers, because we have to prepare for SPM and also the school exams.  I also got to handle my School Communication Group for half of the year before passing the baton the next batch of hopefuls. I also got to record the graduation song which eventually everyone will have a copy of the CD. I hope I have that chance to record the CD…

I have met quite a lot of friends this year, and continue with the relationship of some “old “ friends.

Also, I have to control myself from using the computer too long… I don’t want to hook up with this addicting mechanism.

Christmas is like Jesus’ birthday, who was born in Bethlehem.  Tis’ the season to be jolly!

Before I sign off, I would like to wish everyone of us a merry Christmas once more!

God bless, peace out!

Language Controversy

3 Dec

Hmm, this post may contain a little controversy about people, so do forgive me if I happen to cross the line, like I never cross before. I am a person who dares to speak something out. And, don’t you ask me to start licking someone’s butt just to please them, ok?

I stumbled upon a wall post of one of my friends in Facebook. He said, (modified into proper English):

Those who converse in English will discriminate Chinese-speaking people, claiming that these people are of low class. Those who converse in Chinese will assume that English-speaking people are arrogant, haughty, bitchy. For those who speak both of the language, are cowards for not standing up, because what they say will be fired back to themselves.

First of all, I like to comment about this phrase. I think honestly, my friend has met with people who has a similar behaviour, stated in the above quote, but it is simply ridiculous to summarize people of the same group as low class, or bitchy. It is up to one self to have their own discipline to be courteous and friendly. Chinese, speaking English, doesn’t mean that they are betraying their own people.

Let me break down and analyze this quote one by one:

Those who converse in English will discriminate Chinese-speaking people, claiming that these people are of low class.

Since when Chinese-speaking people are of low class? These people have responsibility to gain independence for The Republic of China, contributing to some of the most outstanding achievement in the world? And now, you are saying that these people are low class? In such a way, you are revealing that Chinese is a low-class language? There are beauty in Chinese literatures that we can enjoy. I think, it’s up to one’s taste to choose whether they like to read Chinese literature or English literature. Language cannot define people.

If these people are low class, as you mentioned, that means your conclusion is China is a low class country, since most of the people there speak Chinese. I think it is completely ridiculous and insane for you to say that. Observe the development of the country, for yourself.

Some may say that Chinese people like to spit in public places, this can be curbed by educating them, using their own language. Education is important to everyone living here. By educating people the right way, they should know what is right and what is wrong.

Those who converse in Chinese will assume that English-speaking people are arrogant, haughty, bitchy.

Is this some kind of revenge? Since A is castigating B, so B must fight back. This is all bull crap. Each person has their own language to converse, and those who speak the international language gains more benefit in looking jobs. It does not mean, that the whoever speaks English, that cannot understand Chinese, are haughty. What if it’s the other way round?

I think my friend is generalizing everything into a summary, which is not benefiting two sides. I have friends who speak both good English and Chinese, and even French, but they still remain friendly to all people. If they cannot understand the language, they will try to make an attempt to understand, and not criticizing them.

You can’t always jump the gun in every occasion. Just because you met a few people who acted this way, doesn’t mean that every people will act the exact way…

Till then, peace out and God bless! Comments are welcomed too..
