August 1-2 - Fraser's Hill Family Retreat! brrr....


very spooky entrance. we stayed here for the one night's trip. this place was booked by my aunt, and we got it FOC!! how nice : ) it's got a very colonial architecture... very comfortable! you see lots and lots of flowers, with credits to the caretaker of the bungalow... very pretty flowers!




this one looks like raspberries eh??


didn't find out what species they are... so it's like meeting someone you're familiar with but you've forgotten their name... agh... hahahah.


that's the golf course in Fraser's Hill!


this empty inn is another spooky one... couldn't help but imagine there's something lurking inside the picture!! eeeek...


this was where we bought some ice cream to cool down. the afternoon was hot and the air still.


stopping by Ye Olde Smokehouse to take pictures. my uncle's taking his time taking pictures of the place and the spouse!


Now, this is spooky. the dining hall in Maybank Lodge!!


front porch here.


flowers around the compound.


this one's outside the bungalow... near Alan's Water (a place to paddle boats).


flowers at a nearby nursery.


a shot from another bungalow.


this is Brinchang Bungalow.


Living hall of Maybank Lodge.


again, front porch.


fish eye view? minus the fish! haha


the pavement leading to the backyard. on your right is a tennis court, but without the net... But i doubt it's a tennis court... futsal maybe...


the view of the dining hall from the kitchen.


Back at home packing 2 presents for 2 lovely friends.


Another 'no-name' flower. but this one's at home. It blooms at midnight! Sounds ridiculous but it is true! there we were, the whole family waiting for it to bloom from....


this... to....

this in about 2 hours.



makes you gasp at how wonderful the Almighty's creations are...despite the irregular flowering seasons.


November 8 - Charity Walk/Jog/Wheel-a-thon with the disabled

sunrise!



the sunlight stings my eyes!


November 12 - Grad-day!




Upper 6 : Arts. KienWee's with us : )


the juniors. not all are here. some are busy with duties...


it's surprising we don't mind studying with dusty window panes!! hahaha: D


with the classroom stuck in the middle of the school compound, it's very hot and stuffy without shade from huge trees... sigh... such is the norm in smch! but that makes it feel like you're in chong hwa... Right, guys??


morning sunlight.


under the roof of the students' activity centre.


pale sunlight plus coloured hair.



we had 2 events that day. one is the grad ceremony. the other's a farewell ceremony for the headmistress.



Another day at home. two birds lepak-ed around the compound just outside the dining area.


hours later they were seen frolicking outside my room...

it just snapped.

The Frames : Say it to me now

Feeling kind of mellow.
Like all the leaves turned yellow.
Wished I could just follow.
And not just listen to them bellow.

drop that!

early thursday morning, jul 23rd:


somebody got up and went to the loo.
the rustle woke me up.
instinctively I reached for the clock right beside my pillow.
2 or 3 a.m.
great, not the time to get up yet.
gleefully and carelessly I slipped back into unconsciousness.

I had a dream. maybe a few in one.

hockey or football, I can't recall.
of being applied little diamante(or little pieces of accessories) all over the face;
and having to experience floating in mid-air and grooving with the music.

back and forth, back and forth.

then it all vanished.

there I was, or whoever it might be,
on a sandy place, strolling,
possibly.
holding some thing resembling a tiny crab,
disgust took over and made me cringe.

I smudged it.

the remnants got in between my fingernails.
quickly they were dislodged,
and I flicked every thing as far as I could.

yucks.

c r a s h

It was 4.30 a.m.
The sound startled me awake.

Frustrated after having to readjust the time,
I went back to sleep for another hour,
before the official morning call.

But still, it makes me laugh and wonder,


HOW COULD DREAMS MAKE ME THROW MY ALARM CLOCK.

eh?


head-scratchingly funny.

five for fighting.

feeling fenced out?



Thought of the week: It's surprising to have heard that so far none has been able to obtain band 6 in Muet (not sure of other schools though). I've gotten a five. The cause: A drop in standard/stricter examiners/tougher questions?

Went for the school's Annual Jogathon yesterday morning at Taman Tasik Titiwangsa where we jogged about 2.5 km or so. It was good, quite comforting to know that you're finally exercizing and eliminating accumulated toxin. Will be going for another run tomorrow morning near Times Square. It's also good to know your muscles aren't in much pain now, so tomorrow would be quite alright. Fingers crossed.

Well, I don't know... Sometimes it does feel like you're left alone wandering, in school or out, till the silence strikes and makes you wander even further - a world of your own. Exams are traumatizing, yes we all know. You might think that, well, 3-4 months... I'll manage to cram 1 1/2 years' syllabus and gear up for what's to come, but... there's always a thought fighting to surface, wanting you to acknowledge that time's running short and whatever that's done and passed can't be undone and relived, and it's better to buck up and be serious once and for all.
That particular 'drive' you can't seem to tap into; the 'agony' of having to remind yourself the need to revise and practise. Dreadful... but a phase that has to be overcome.



Nobody said it was easy; no one ever said it would be this hard. Too bad we can't take ourselves back to the start.


Rest well, friends.

after the beep!



AND THE VERDICT ...




will be revealed in another 3 days.


I bet everyone's getting anxious ...

It better be okay or there goes your 60 Ringgit ... plus another few months of agonizing practices.


agh! Good luck, folks!

have a kit kat!

Bonjour! This would be a brief update (I suppose). Sat for an 8-day exam which ended on 25th May. The papers were quite grueling. Yes, it's tough and I know I haven't been studying earlier, so I realised that consistent work (which was what I did not do) pays off. Got my results for micro- and macro-economics and it was a mild shocker. Expected the former to be much better than the latter, but what I'd gotten was the opposite. And the reason I was a little dissatisfied with myself was that I spent the most time revising for microeconomics. It's quite a letdown, actually. Still waiting for the results of the remaining papers... Meanwhile, had time to chill out for awhile after mid-year's... This is for an avid fan of doraemon while the other's for a friend who loves cheese.


This, together with a bunch of carnations was for the advisor of Sixth Formers' Club.

Went to Titiwangsa with a bunch of church youths (we call ourselves Footprints) on the 31st in the hot afternoon. They played games there and had lunch after a session of 'torturing' members by the leaders. I was excluded. Am behind the lens ma....


That's it for now... one more week until school reopens... gotta start doing homework... agh! Anyway... the people in this photo (taken by our form teacher/the school guard) is who I see every other day in school, just so you know... warm colours. well... nah... my classmates lah. Unfortunately, one of our friend has Multiple Sclerosis and is unable to join us in class. Hope he will recover soon. Tough guy he is! Keeping you in prayer! Stay strong, you've still gotta sit for STPM!
