no one

i should be ashamed for not having my blog updated for ages. this time around, this blog has been left stagnant and idle for quite a time due to the stagnation of my life. no experience, no blogging lah. i just didn't know what to write. furthermore, i've vowed to myself not to ever put lame and crappy stuffs into my blog. after all, quality should always remain above quantity.

lemme get a headstart with the freaking paramount group singing group consisted of me pau aggie leens and kay. fatin acted as our so-called 'manager' to aid us in our training etc (sounds so vain)...

everything about our performance and preparation was just 'extraordinary'. yeah, extraordinary. it's really funny that none of us has ever had experience of singing in front of the public. the 'dance' between our lack of experience and nervousness, coupled with the echoing technical problems here and there really reduced our chance of getting to final. yes, we didn't manage to savour the feeling of being one of the finalists, but who cares? i had fun. we had fun. i've just watched the video of our performance, and we didn't suck okay. or to be frank, we didn't suck comprehensively. i just simply laughed while listening to leens' cute and cuddly intro, watching the aggie's confidence in shaking his whole body to the rhythm of 'no one', sensing the kay's quest for a vocal timelessness, admiring our lil kid pau's innocent steps and my own stiffness and tensed look on the stage. that was really a recording that i'll surely treasure...

hugs and kisses to my singing comrades. we really rocked the day. kudos to the finalists. you guys were really really great and it's a mesmerizing fact of how successful Sri KDU is in not only being a temple for the intellectual and academic enlightenment for the students; it has also managed breed an abundance of young talents in singing. this has really thrilled me actually.

lesson of the day;
as we're all engulfed in the hectic lifestyle as an IB student, we should be more aware of the importance of us keeping some bits and pieces of the lusciousness of our life and preserving them into the sacred form of images for us to reflect to in the future. treasurable memories can never disappoint us; they act as an enrichment and testament of how wonderful our lives could and will be. they can even act as antidotes to cure the negativity of the feeling of being your own self. furthermore, memories will always be by your side to cheer you up if the emotional eclipse roams your world in the future.

Therefore, do your best to treasure all your memories okay. i think i should snap more pictures of me having my 'ordinary' meals at salhah or deli. who knows, if a picture of me biting my food hard with my friends on my side would be able to add sweetness into my days in the future.

~a perfect reason to have a new digital camera, indeed. i SHOULD get a better camera than my current mediocre Casio EXILIM. I should =) mamak! yan! my plea okay~

it's good to be free

i can never be blamed for exaggerating with the fact that my ib sufferings have insinuatingly receded after the glorious submission of my EEs and the completion of several small fishes like worldlit etc (writing a 1500-word-long essay is just a staple for any IB people i guess)...
now, my weekends are gonna be much better. of course we're all not gonna be emancipated the way a pigeon does, but, it is just great to have a space for yourself. my first post-EE weekend has been one of the best in this whole year. i'm no longer deprived from hanging out with my sister, updating my blog, sleeping to my heart's contents, hanging out to either OU or curve with my greatest buddies in the world etc. i've even started immersing myself in the charm that great literary works possess; i'm halfway towards finishing the "reading lolita in Tehran" memoirs. the book is just amazing and i'm looking forward to getting another book from the library after finishing this whole book...

do i need to tell you guys that the real icing of the cake is that i'm now more able to switch my real focus from EE to my final IB exam which is approaching us at a staggering pace. with more systematic efforts in place, i have faith that the big fat FORTY is really within my arm's reach of desire. go go faizal!
