nway, back to the main topic...this is not a class thing..i dunno why i'm posting it here....but yeah...i am re-reading THE MEMORY KEEPER'S DAUGHTER by KIM EDWARDS....*it's been in the bestseller's list for like weeks..*..oh, before i continue....if any of you saw the book that audrey brought to school, that stephen king book....sometimes, it made me wonder "why in the world is the name of the author taking 3/4 of the front cover...??and the title is like crammed into a 'corner' of the cover....
i talked bout the book before, i think...and lydia was supposed to lend it next...but i'll wait till she returns my other book...*hint*..nway, yea..i'll give the book a rating of 9 out of 10...yea...
it's a novel about the life of a broken family...and sometimes, it really touches the soul...the way he describes life....and it's like he'll be able to put into words what you've been thinking all along...so, it's like finding someone who is on the same wavelength....this book always manage to get me feeling a lil depressed...like seeing all their lives, falling apart...mebb it's just me, too absorbed in the characters...there's this character also...PAUL...he's the son la...you'll just fall in love with him...he's a teenager in the story...and yea...
here's an extract from the story...i dunno if it's legal...
"Let's stay focused here," David said at last. "You don't need to worry about your mother and me. That's not your job. Your job is to find your way in the world. To use all your many gifts. And it can't all be for yourself. You have to give something back. That's why I do that clinic work."
"I love music," Paul said softly. "When I play, I feel like I'm doing that- giving something back."
"And you are. You are. But Paul, what if you have it in you to discover, say, another element in the universe. What if you could discover the cure for some rare and awful disease?"
"Your dreams," Paul said. "Yours, not mine."
*David is Paul's dad..guess it's pretty obvious...*
see??..sometimes, what is portrayed in the book is so true...and it kinda reflects my life...which is why i'm so drawn to the book, i think...it's a nice change to see someone who finally understands your life and have gone through your life...even though he's fictional..hahaha...the plot is also not those cliche-d kind....those kind that's always "...live happily ever after..." ...bleaahhh... nonsense...and that's why children are so innocent...
ps. so, lydia...rmb to return my book the next time we meet..and i'll lend you this wan...i'm finishing already...jaga baik2 oo cz most of my books have slept beside me on my bed before *seriously*...

Ee Xin, the big dai lou (haha..rmb this??) I must really thank her for her support and help throughout this year. I really appreciate it!! Zhi Hui said that I can't live without her..and well, I guess I have to agree (slightly!). Got to know her much much better this year and yeah, I've learnt a lot from her, namely how to be VERY VERY perasan..
The many faces of jia foong..
Flying kung fu style
Finally got her to take a decent picture..
Our last day of the year in the canteen...
Dawn and Ka Yee and Chin were getting all the free stuff from the canteen people..haha..so funny, buy one, free 3?? madness..but anyway, good also la cz i got free food..
Had extra recess time because we accidentally (serious!) came out early..so spent some time taking pics!
Another 4s1 mishap, the broom head came off..
Fireman Zhi Hui
What do you call those pencerita in the wayang kulit ah? Ka Yee was exactly like one..haha
Whatla Dawn going to Science 4
Haha..with my deskmate..LYDIA PANG KAI TSAN!! Thanks for bearing with me and listening to all my complaints (i know i grumble a lot). Miss those times where we'll criticize things behind the Sej textbook while listening to teacher. All the jokes and the laughter that we shared. Sometimes it's nice sitting next to you because i don't have to feel so guilty for finishing my work late cz there's always someone who will finish it later than me!! Well, didn't expect to sit with you this year but yeah, glad everything turned out quite well eh? Looking forward to sitting beside you next year.
Part of 4s1
my last day of school was pretty normal, nothing spectacular....went on errands with jessica...sat down to chat in class...gotong-royong cleaning the PR....it just appeared to be like any other day...except that it is NOT....it is the last day of school for 2007 Form Four...a day which will not repeat itself again...lots of changes going to occur next year....and i'll have to say BYE BYE to Form Four life...how fast is that???...i dunno....*shrugs*
anyway...DAWN is going to 5 Science 4 next year....*what the @#$@??*...that was my reaction at first...but i guess we'll have to understand...she wants to drop physics, pick up accounts...and that's the only way...told ya life is never gonna be the same next year....PHUIYAN is going to 5 Science 2....*worries about her...*..that was my reaction...i hope she'll find better friends who will always support her there...but we're still here....i've wanted to say this for quite some time...to phuiyan "if any of those science 2 ppl bully or look down on you, tell us..."..i'll show them *flexes muscle*...don't worry...you can always run over and say hello to us next door...it'll be quite hard for dawn, though...but we'll see...
and sor KAHMUN is going to Virginia, America....most probably...and the thing she was most worried about is her COMICS...*throws shoe at her*...okokok...i made her promise to inform us first before she is leaving...cos' quite a lot of stuff was unsettled, i believe...tat sor por...i'll miss her terribly if she goes....it'll be hard to keep in touch....what with the miles and miles of land and sea between us...
and well..i've forgotten what i wanna say...*i'm REALLY getting old!!"......................................
oh,yeah....i believe changing classes is not everything *umm...am i contradicting myself??*...and well, we can't really depend so much on the same bunch of people...though of course, it's good to have friends around you....and well...next year's gonna be really hectic...but my lazy self will probably relax and unwind till like a month before exam...???..unless forced, of course....but i'm still looking forward to our new class environment...and the loooooooooooooonnnnnnnnnnng *ok..maybe not so long*....but still...u get the idea...it's just like five hours into the loooooooooooonnnnng holidays and i'm bored already...*glances at the Windows Live Messenger*...why nobody online wan??????!!!!
ps. *sighs*...this blog will go on next year, right???...i mean, even though we are in different classes already....i seriously hope we can keep it active....

The first thing that caught me eye was this pic below. As a kid, I simply loved to waste food simply because my stomach is the size of microorganism. Okay, maybe not that small but you get the idea. So when I see these kind of signs, well I get a little nervous..
Wacky signs rule the day..i like the please be civilized thing, maybe they should have put one in the dining room for us 4s1-ers instead of only the toilet cubicle.
Some people started taking desserts (you know who you are) before even starting the steamboat..come on..where is the sense of protocol??
More raw food waiting to be cooked!!
May Jet's famous pose
I like the look of raw meat..don't ask me why..haha
May Jet and Phui Yan taking on the cooking duties..
Tracy's cooking lesson
Eating french fries with chopsticks??
Aiyo..wherever 4s1 goes..sure something get broken..haha (hint: see the kuiz pelancongan post)
The constipated look
Yip proudly showing what she's eating..yum
Everyone is done eating but some people still persevere..
Zhi Ying devouring crab i think..
Aiyo..people class party still want to kutip hutang?? (overly rajin ah long)
Lydia loves lobsters..(esp when they are in the cooking pot)
Tracy said that what they did to the fish is cruel..and i well have to agree with her although it looks kinda unique.
Who do you think will get the job? Lydia or May Jet?
Told you there were wacky signs all over this place..
Double trouble (okay i know this is cheesy)
Let's see who has the dirtiest table..contestant no. 1!!
Table 2 is not that dirty la..haha
The cleanest table of the three!
Getting ready to take pictures..
Jia Foong being tall for once..haha

our table yang teramat maha meriah thou it was quite crammed.... but like what ppl says, the more, the merrier....Puan Lim will be very happy to see this... Zhihui and Mayjet applied physics (reflection) in their 'play??'.. Zhihui was the object and Mayjet was the image...
more to go... but i'll just post this first for the time being.... hehe
