F : You are dead sexy.

omg i know i'm sexy (i can smell vanity in the air!) but i'm not 'dead' sexy okay =D

A : You like to drink.
of course. water is damn essential in ensuring the survival of beings. i drink anything but booze.

I : Easy to be with.
this is soo close to the absolute truth!

Z : Always ready
ehm i wish i am but ib exams are such a pain in the arse that u'll need a century of preparation to tell the world that u're ready for it! just to add up, my punctuality is awe-inspiring =D

A : You like to drink.
don't wanna brew redundancy here~

L : Everyone loves you.
i guess so since my life is terribly showered with happiness and the warmth of joy. that's the miracle of being loved and sharing love to everybody around us. thank you Allah. I love my life =)

2nd TAG!

1) What is the most important thing in your life?
everything that revolves around me is important but to rank them according to their importance, i would say my family, my studies and scholarship, my friends, and, of course, my life.

2) What is the last thing that you bought with your own money?
nasi lemak from sri KDU cafeteria that leaves a lot to be desired =D

3) Where do you wish to get married?
Haven't had a concrete plan on those.

4) How old do you think you will be permanently owned by your love?
i've been loved from the first day of my life =)

5) Are you in love?
being happy is being loved

6) Where was the last restaurant you had dinner?
mdm lim's with pau kay aggie. we're loyal customers there. have been patronizing the place frequently since last year.

7) Name the latest book that you bought?
"The Heart of Darkness" by Joseph Conrad

8) What is your full name?
Awg Mohd Faizal bin Awg Mohamad Hamssin (that's really 'full')

9) Do you prefer your mother or father?
i'm in no position to judge them but i would like to say that both have their own distinctive traits that i either desire of loathe. both are equally cool according to my judgement too. however, i am more comfortable talking to my mom lah, since she's not working and is able to spend more time with us. my dad's kinda busy working and i pretty understand that~

10) Name a person that you really wish to meet in real life for the first time
every prominent leader in the world. i wanna tell them to stop hating and start giving and receiving love as the world is being in its state of chaos due to the mortals' thirst of love and truest dignity.

11) Christina or Britney?
Britney of course. Christina is not a super singer i suppose. she's a super shrieker! britney was my fav when i was a kid. songs like 'lucky' and 'stronger' had the profound connections to me. her elevation to superstardom inspired millions. her meltdown has turned her fans down, but her pop magic is still alive. i'm glad that she's back, for now, at least!

13) The most exciting place you want to go?

South Africa! i really wanna go and explore the Western Cape area. the most intriguing aspect of SA lies on its diverse nature. u can see extreme beauty and violence of the nature, extreme weather, and of course, fabulous wealth lingering next to the grippling poverty caused by the decades of ignorance. i really wanna visit SA to gain lessons about life, and the importance of us being appreciative to what we are blessed to possess. for other places, i would like to say istanbul, london, argentina, and prague =)

14) Hugs or kisses?

15) Point out 5 things about the person who tagged you.
Zare did tag me! she's smart, friendly, decent, cuddly, and not-so-punctual! opps she's a sleep-a-holic too!

the miracles of wiki...

my ib fellow khairul has just established a very useful website called 'wikirevise' i bet that every single student under the Sun is gonna be pretty amazed by the enormous potentials that this new website impregnates. I have faith that once the whole objectives of this website are being realized and its potential realised to the fullest, students are going to be free to bid farewell to the toughest days and hours of intense revisions and sleep deprivations, for sure. however, such potentials and benefits can only be gained if the site is laden with the notes we all need. it is virtually impossible for khairul to do everything on his own. the miracles of wikirevise can only be achieved if everybody is doing their part. it's freaking simple. just join the growing community of wikirevise and share your precious notes with virtually everyone in need of those. may the lord bless u for the good deeds u have committed in making the lives of me and you easier. i've done my part, and it's time for u to do yours!

*by the way, me and my other ib dudes in sri KDU is currently working on equipping the site with our IB Business (HL/SL) notes. the notes are amazing. feel free to have a look on those!

keep it short

mock exam is officially OVER! lord knows how badly have i been deprived of my sleep and life in the past 2 weeks. my wanly appearance shows it all. i guess that it's high time for me to get some sleep i deserve, and a retail therapy indeed!

if u have ever had the arse to know about the way i perceive the mock exam questions, i would really love to say that the papers, maths aside, weren't as horrifying as what i've visionized priorly. maths were really tough, especially as the paper 3 questions were concerned. it really squeezed my sanity outta me. paper 1 drove me loco a bit, and paper 2 was way more bearable. i really gotta keep my 10 fingers crossing so that my mocks result will be captivating enough to act as a provenance to the greater level of my self-confidence to face the upcoming final exams =)

i went klcc for a night out with fida mary pau n kay. we watched movie, had great laugh, and good food. kay and mary shopped as substantially as everybody's anticipation. i do rarely feel really liberated the way i felt last night, thanks to the demanding IB and great pressure that follows. by the way i'm not THAT free since i've got maths IA and World Lit to refine to achieve the level of perfection that is soo ib.

gonna come out with a longer post soon as i've got a lot of things to share with everyone. i just, for this time being, feel the greatest urge to stay in my sanctuary of dormant living with an abundance of the beads of tranquillity. gotta stay away from the world of overwhelmingly hectic impressions for a while. for the bio people, good luck for yr exam. u still have 2 miserable days left before u enter the world of brief freedom from the monster called IB. envy me not.
