Prefect's Camp

OK, I just got back from Kem Kepimpinan Pengawas which was supposed to be in Genting Highlands. However, due to some so- called safety purposes, the venue was changed to SMKDJ. Haiiizzzz.........

There were 6 teams and I was the team leader of Toyota. To tell you the truth, I didn't actually like this team 'cause some members of this team can't seem to co-operate with others. Luckily, they were split up to different teams the next day.

Basically, this camp was 'bout how to be a good leader and how to work in a group which was something I'd learnt since primary school. Can't they teach us something new and different other than teamwork, co-operation and whatsoeva.

But the games prepared by Eddie was fun, though. Especially the Entrapment game and the some sort of Treasure Hunt game. In the Hunt game, we really have to use both sides of our brains and think creatively in order to get the answer to the questions.

At night, we had Malam Kebudayaan. Every race had to do some sort of performance. I sang 'Kau Ilhamku' by Man Bai. Not solo, of course. They were 'bout 7 people singing that song but I'm telling you people, our voices were like toads! But hey! We had a fab time onstage so it doesn't really matter.

The best performance of it all had to be Wei Liang's so-called cheerleading squad, the 'GEEK SQUAD' consisting of Wei Liang, Daryl, CK, and some other guys (sorry, forgot the names, already). They wore extremely high pants with the tie ties so tight on the neck. They did some lame chants but it was definitely hilarious.

The girls slept in the hall while the guys slept in Bilik Agama. Alia, Ashiqin and I played pillow fight and Truth or Dare. By 2 a.m.. we were beginning to fall asleep. I know it's early to go to bed at that time but we were dead tired after a whole day of tight schedule and not to mention the activities in the morning later on.

2 hours before going back home, we had a game of Water War. We were supposed to splash the other team with water and my team led by Luke won the game!!! So, we got to splash the other team as much as we want and they had to stay put and cannot run away. Oh, Mr Tan was also in school today. He was observing his father's construction work in the school or something.

Anyway, overall this camp wasn't as bad as we thought it would be. Though I'm sure it'll be much better in Genting but like Eddie said, 'Make the best of whateva you have'. I did develop a closer bond with the fellow prefects and Eddie even said that this year's Kem Pengawas was the easier team and task he ever handled since everyone was able to work together as a team.

Hopefully, the Afternoon Session Prefects can produce something better for the school after attending this camp.

Go Afternoon Session Prefects of 2006!!!!!!

Gosh, finally the week long of exams full of depression and stress is over!!!! I nearly had a nervous breakdown this week. Too stressed up to maintain my position in the exam.

Overall the exams were OK. But a few of the exams were really hard that I think I cracked my brain to get the answer. LOL!

I did some silly mistakes in Math and Geo exams. Arrggggh!!!!! Hopefully can get an A but hmmm........

From what I experienced, if you hate a subject, you tend to get lower marks in that particular subject. I seriously HATE geography and when I sit for that test, I'll just get OK marks.

Though I get an A, but it's just an average A. It's not enough, actually. In life, you always have to aim high, not only average, right?

So, the moral of the story is that:

Love your subjects and they will love you back.

b'day gurl

Yay! Today's my birthday!!! I got a Swatch watch, a pair of Nike shoes, Body Glove T-shirts and a brownie choc cake from my parents. A lot of wishes from my friends and few presents from others.

Anyway, yesterday I took part in 'Pertandingan Puisidra Sek. Men. Daerah Petaling'. I lost, unfortunately. I was supposed to 'mendeklamasikan sajak' but things went wrong onstage.

I had 2 of my frens, Alia and Hil as my backdrops. When it was Alia's turn to read her lines, the mic wasn't working and I had to stand there like a 'dungu' while waiting for the mic to be repaired.

Then, Hil was supposed to play the "This Is My Time" song on her handphone. When it came to her part to play the song, she left her phone at the other end of the stage! It was kind of too late to take the phone but the show must go on.

What an embarassment! Some stupid technical problems can bring a failure to you. But I see this from a positive view. I'll take this as an experience as it is my first participation in this competition. Even if it's a bad one.

This taught me a lesson to work harder and not be over- confident the next time. What a lesson.........

But one good thing 'bout yesterday, though. My friends were very supportive 'bout me being in this competition. Some even came early to school just to give me moral support since the competition is in the morning and in our school.

Alia, Hanna and Anis even did a poster to show their strong supports to me. Thanks, people! Love you, gurls!!!!!

fight against racism

I received a forwarded joke from a chinese friend of mine. Though it is just a joke, I don't find it funny, literary. This is how the joke goes:

A man was taking a walk in Central park in New York. Suddenly he saw a little girl being attacked by a pit bull dog. He ran over and started fighting with the dog. He succeded in killing the dog and saved the girl's life.

A policeman who was watching the scene walked over and said: "You are a hero, tomorrow you can read it in all the newspapers: "Brave New Yorker saves the life of little girl" The man said: - "But I am not a New Yorker!"

"Oh then it will say in newspapers in the morning: 'Brave American saves life of little girl'"the policeman answered. "But I am not an American!" - said the man. "Oh, what are you then?" The man answered: - "I am a
Pakistani! "The next day the newspapers wrote: "Islamic extremist kills innocent American dog."

To some it may seem like no big deal. But as a Muslim myself, it seems insulting. How would you feel if you were labeled as an extremist.

Freedom of speech is not a license or a permit to insult other religions and races. It's totally fine to joke around.

But let the joke be laughable by everyone.
