blush-O-meter: 9.9

This week had been a crazy week and it's only Jan!!! Netball tournament is starting next week and I finally made it into the Nostalgia editorial board after I failed to join last year. But what I'm about to tell is something rather embarassing for me. I would say that this incident, by far, one of the most 'blushed cheeks' experiences I had encountered.

It was on Thursday when I went to Atria to buy my mum's late bday gift. I always buy presents a week or two after anyone's bdays. Anyway, while I was about to get off the escalator with my friends, my shoelace got stuck in it!! Which escalator was it??? Oh, yeah...the one in front of KFC where almost the whole of KFC was full with DJians having their lunch. Yup, that's the one.

Of all the escalators it had to be the one where there were a lot of eye witnesses that I know. Everyone was looking at me and wondering what happened. You know what they say: 'the fewer witnesses, the better'. So then there was this kind lady who called the security guard to help me while I was stuck there with my super blushed cheeks. Finally the guard came and he had to call another guard 'cause the 1st one couldn't pull my shoe off the thing.

Lucky thing my shoe lace came out after a strong tug from the 2nd guard. After that, I dare not show my face and went scurrying to find the present for my mum.

Good thing was that mum actually liked the present. I bought her a pearl bracelet (don't ask 'bout the price) so I guess the whole I'm-so-freakin'-embarassed incident was worth it.

Moral of the story: Tie your shoelaces once you start walking.

a birthday dinner

Mum's birthday fell on 11th of Jan (Thurs) but since the whole family was crazy busy this week, with me busy with school homework, dad busy with his work and the birthday girl itself was busy with her uni's theatre week, we didn't celebrate on the exact day.

Instead we celebrated my mum's birthday today at a Swiss cuisine restaurant, Chalet in Equatorial Hotel. I ordered beef tenderloin (a total yummy!) while my parents ordered Swiss cod or something like that. While we had our desserts, (mine: apple tart) the string quartets played a b'day song for my mum and serenaded our table with a Beatle's song, Yesterday. The staff even gave a free birthday cake!

I could see that her face glowed with happiness with all the treats and celebrations she had gotten. It warmed my heart to see her so happy on her special day after a whole week of stress and hardwork due to her job.

an autograph

Have you ppl ever watched the series 'REALITI' which was once aired on 8TV last year? You know the one where Ashraf Sinclair played as the wannabe rapper? Well, have you seen the guy who played Melody's(played by Chelsea Ng) dad, the guy who pushed his daughter to the limits so that she will become what he wants her to be.

Guess what?? My mum scored an autograph of his while he attended one of my mum's seminars. For those of you who still have no freakin' idea who is Kee Thuan Chye, this is him:

And this is the autograph he signed especially for me. LOL!

Oh..yeah, I AM having a wonderful life now.

school's here..again!

After 7 weeks of full rest at home, I'm ready for another year of schooling and this year I started in a whole new environment which is my 3 Batai class. To be honest I expected negative outcomes by being in this class. You know by being the only one from Belian and not knowing ALMOST more than half of the class, I thought I would be singled out on the first few months.

I was wrong. Batai people are very friendly and I don't regret being in this class. For starters, some of them gave me welcoming gestures for being in their class. I appreciate that, thank you.

I was elected as AJK Kebersihan. From a prefect to AJK Kebersihan. Not bad. Seriously. The reason why I quit being a prefect was that I'M BORED of it. After ALMOST my whole schooling years (so far) had been devoted to my school prefectorial board, I think it's time to take a time out of it.

I'm enjoying every bit of my life now. YIPPEE!!!
