memories in school are the best that i've ever had..

I slept through the whole afternoon. The weather is getting so warm now that I can't help escaping it by sleeping. When I finally woke up, it's already raining and the glistening raindrops in the sky didn't help much to bring the temperature down. Hot showers!

I went to the school's Open Day which was organised by the Interact Club. It started and ended punctually. Good performances were held and I couldn't help flashing back my school days when I was there for 5 years of education. Good and bad memories came back to me.

When I look at the classrooms, I remembered where I sat and chatted with my treasured friends during intervals and also I could actually feel the pressure studying for the exams during those times. Well, except that the feeling of pressure now is a much relieved one as I realised I have gone through so much and grown more learned and matured in the years. I really can't thank the school enough for moulding and shaping me so carefully so that I became who I am today.

At least, I didn't turn into a bad, rotten egg. :D

When I look at the corridors, I remembered about recess time when I did not eat and stood at one spot along it, staring at the other students enjoying their meal, laughing and teasing among their friends. Occasionally, I would read and complete my assignments in the corridor outside the classroom.

I've got so used to Convent that I don't think I will be able to forget it. Oh, those cherished moments I had in school could not possibly be replaced or compared with the memories that are equally worthy to be kept safe in my heart. They were obtained from school and of course, I will never experience them again after I stepped out of school completely in future.

count your blessings..

I just came back from Japan! No, I am just kidding. Haha.

Well, how I wish I could fly to Japan just to admire the beauty of Mother Nature. I want to see the beautiful and breath-taking scenery of cherry blossoms. I've seen enough of sunflowers, hibiscus and bougainvillaea. In fact, I see them most of the days in my life.

Sometimes, I feel like I am an ungrateful child. I have everything that I've ever needed and yet that everything doesn't seem to be enough. Then, when I begin to realise how fortunate I am to have a roof above my head, shielding me from rain and shine, I think about people who can't even afford to have a place they can call home.

It's then only I noticed that I am more fortunate than the majority of the people of the world. I am really a fool to think of something like this. I have enough to eat and sometimes more than I could afford to finish. Food comes in handy. But for those who barely have enough to eat for the day, or worse, couldn't eat proper food at all and the only source of nutrients comes from the dirt and grass, don't they deserve the right to complain more than I do?

Therefore, always count our blessings. We may think we deserve a better life than it is, but by learning to count every single blessing God has poured out so abundantly for us will definitely change us to be a more cheerful and wholesome person. Taking all the best things we have for granted is not the way it should be. The attitude to appreciate is very, very important.

all about opportunities..

There's only about a month more to go and I am going to say a sweet goodbye to my holidays. I will move on and go with the flow of time to the place I will soon call my school.

During these times when I have had so much time to think about the past, I thought about something very crucial in life.

Life is like a dessert. You can choose to enjoy it or give it up for the sake of dieting. I realised that there are so many opportunities out there waiting for people to grab hold of them. Yet, most people just let the chances go and blame the world for the sad lives they lead.

Why can't these people get on their feet and keep a wide lookout for those rare opportunities rather than just wait at home for Opportunities to come knocking on their doors?

Success doesn't drop down from the sky.

We only live once. Don't wait for chances to come. Look for them.

goals in life are not goals in football matches..

I am all stuck and lost for words to post up an entry.

Frankly speaking, from the bottom of my heart, I really admire those who really have everlasting ideas to write, be it their lives experiences or just thoughts.

I have no visions on my future or whatsoever, but one thing for certain, I know I will have to go through a hard time in achieving my goals. A whole lump of perseverance and passion in all that I do will certainly contribute a lot in nearing success. Now that I see how tedious it is to get what I want, I was thinking why can't goals in life be like goals in football matches? The players score goals just like eating chocolates!!

I won't say a piece of cake because cakes are hard to eat sometimes. Once the texture is too soft, you'll mess up whatever you are eating it on as it crumbles and breaks into another millions of pieces even if you grasp it gently between your fingers. If it's too hard, you will be eating rock cakes, the ones Hagrid made in Harry Potter. Chocolates are different.

Speaking of chocolates, I am craving for a piece right now. Maybe a bar. It's very funny because I don't mind eating chocolates in BULK (this is a bit too much, I know), but if you were to order me to eat a whole tub of ice-cream, I will say an absolute NO without thinking twice. A second is enough for me to think and answer. It's weird how my brain says YES to chocolates and NO to other fattening desserts.

And I suddenly have the idea that I am a hypocrite. At the beginning of this entry, I claimed to have nothing to say but in the end I have so much senseless things formed in strings of words here. Maybe I am bound to be one. Hate me, I don't care. Love me, and I will love you too. :)

a dumb video of dumb saffy..

Here's something that I wish to share with you. You will see how dumb Saffy is.

I seriously have no life. All I do is record some nonsense videos and upload them onto the net. Have fun watching!

She took five minutes to chew on a dried apple. It's not her first time eating that though. I guess she has no life just like me.

The recording is blur though. Blame me for my unprofessionalism. :D

good day..

Having a row with parents isn't something comfortable and it's one of the things I had dificulty dealing with. It happened on April Fool's day and I will always remember this day-not with vengeance, but with a feeling of sorry so that I can be sure that it will never happen again.

Makro hasn't changed much since I have last stepped into it which was so many years ago now that I look back. The only difference I found is that I am so much taller that I could reach up to higher shelves without having to tiptoe.

I love the frozen food department best. The air there is extremely chilly-reminds me of winter (although I have never experienced winter before, not that I am in dear Hot and Humid Malaysia:D)

Overall, it's a good day for me. No, it's a good AFTERNOON for me.:)
