We had uniform day today. Everyone was allowed to wear either their "badan uniform" uniform's or society T-shirts. Some people wore normal school uniforms. It was rather weird to see almost everyone in different uniforms...

My school is also building a new hut, and is in need of another RM 5000. Any donaters out there who would like to donate to my school?

Haih... My mid-term exam is round the corner, and there are still a lot of things I wanna study. I have started preparing, but I'll have to burn a few midnight oils to achieve the results I want. Wish me luck!

That's all for now...

Pocket Money...

What does the term pocket money mean? It means money that is put into your pocket for you to spend. Pocket money is usually given to a child by his or her pocket.

Why is pocket money given to a child? Does it do the child good or cause more harm? When pocket money is given, the child will learn to be more independent. The child will lean how to manage his money wisely, spending on what's necessary and saving the rest for a rainy day. It will also instill good saving habits that will help the child in future.

By having pocket money, the child will have more choices. It will give the child choices. The child will learn how to sacrifice some items for another item he desires. He would also afford little little treats like going out for supper with friends or hanging out for just a game of bowling.

But having pocket money has its cons too. Sometimes, giving a child too much will encourage overspending. The child would be forever in debt and this would affect him into his adult life as he would have picked up the bad habit.

Having picket money has its pros and cons. The user determines whether pocket money is good or bad.

A Puff A Day?

I believe more and more teenagers are facing this question... "To smoke or not to smoke?"

It's no longer uncommon to see students in school uniform puffing away a cigarette. Why do people smoke? Out of fun? Out of peer pressure? Or just out of plain curiosity?

Smoking, in no matter what circumstances, will do harm to your health. I once had a feeling to try smoking once just out of curiosity, because I badly wanted to know the taste of it. But I thought the better of it. I thought of the possibility of me getting hooked to it, and it wouldn't be worthwhile.

Don't try smoking, whether you're under stress from your studies, or you're facing relationship problems, or under peer pressure. Stay away from smoking. Find some under ways to relieve your stress or problems, like talking to your best pal about it, or watching a movie. There are definitely better ways to relieve stress than smoking.

Mum at Sixteen

This is one touching movie. A sixteen year old high school student, becomes pregnant, and gives births to a boy named Charley. Instead of giving him up as for adoption, she chooses to keep the baby. Her mother, supports her decision and allow Jacey to finish high school and to lead a normal life.

Jacey goes to school as usual, but one day, Donna sees Jacey with Charley, and asks if Jacey is his mother. Although Jacey lied about that, many people witnessed the interrogation and believe Jacey is really the mother. Her secret is found out in school when Jacey asks Donna how she feels about casual abortion.

When other students criticize her for her hypocrisy, she goes to a mothers meeting for teens. She decides to bring these girls to her school and shows what happens when they have unprotected and casual sex. After that, Donna receives a call that there is a baby waiting to be adopted. Overjoyed, Donna and Bob go adopt the child, only to find it's Charley. Jacey has decided to give him up for his benefit although it hurt her a lot.

This is really one touching movie. We must learn to accept those who although have done unprotected and casual sex people, as normal people. You can't treat them like they're some piece of dirt.

My Friday...

Every Friday, I have to go through this same old routine. Morning, Chemistry tuition. In the afternoon, lunch with Loh and family... At night, MYF. It's getting rather tiring and dull going through the same old routine every Friday. I wish there were some changes to bring up some spice into my life. Haih...

Anyway, I played "The Time Has Come" in MYF just now, I think we did pretty okay... We have just started a new programme that will last for 4 weeks, on the "Ways of Wisdom". I think Uncle Ti Peng gave a rather good talk tonight... I'm looking forward to the next three sessions!

That's all for tonight... And oh ya...

Happy Birthday Sin Thein!

Thought of the Day...

I need to focus more on my main goal, my SPM. My SPM is looming nearer and nearer by the day. And I'm beginning to feel stressed up by the thought of it. I still have loads and loads to study...

I am trying to get my focus back... But old habits, like laziness are hard to change, and it might take a month or two before I can get back to my usual hardworking self again. But I'd start now, better earlier than later. And it's hard when there are so many activities and distractions around me. I'm failing in prioritizing what's important and what's not, but I'd start putting what's most important on the top of my list.

I've got to put all the distractions and activities behind me...

The Time Has Come...

I'll practice hard and hope that I can play this song well this Friday. I've been practicing, and I'd practice harder tomorrow in my free time. Wish me luck!

I have so much in mind, yet so little time carry out.
I have so much to study, yet so little determination.
I have so much to do, yet so little to complete.

Isn't there a better way to live my last year in school? Why are there suddenly so many things to do?

Rocket Competition...

Last Tuesday, my school organized an internal rocket competition for the form 4's. I was the photographer of the competition. LOL! Ng Zhean Wei, Wei Ping and Yen Yie were the judges. The remainder of the competition will be competed this coming Tuesday... It was rather fun... It revived some old memories when I took part in this competition last year.

That day's competition was about seeing whose rocket can stay in the air the longest, with a parachute.

Here are some of the photos I took that day...
Wei Ping discussing with Puan Tan about something...
Pulling the trigger to let the rocket shoot up...
The clear winner! This rocket was in the air for about 10 seconds...

Learning to Appreciate...

Sometimes, we take everything around us for granted, so much so that, sometimes, we forget to look out for others that are not so fortunate. After watching a video my mum showed me on those not so fortunate ones, I made a promise to myself, to appreciate for everything I have and to complain less...

Look at what day eat, they eat the leftovers of other peoples. And yet, they are so glad. And here we are taking the food on the table for granted... I pity them...

Life is so unfair, don't you think?

A Little Update on the Mighty Minds Competition...

Well, the competition's over. All of our school teams made it into the second challenge, but all failed to get shortlisted for the top 3 places.

I was kinda disappointed with my team's results. We put in so much effort doing the second challenge... But it was fun though...

We had to build a compression weighing machine. And I tell you, it's not easy to come out with a model in an hour and thirty minutes. It took a lot of thinking and creativity...

Anyway, I had a great time, learning and hanging out with friends... I hope maybe some time in the future, I'd be able to participate in another competition like this...
Some school's weighing machine...

Ramblings about School...

One of the form 4 student was playing with a mirror(from what I heard), and she wanted to show that she could break it into 2, she accidentally cut her hand while doing out her dare. And this is what she left around the school corridors...
A trail of blood...
The trail of blood could be seen along the library and the form 4 corridors. If she wants to do a dare, at least think first, whether can get hurt or not, or dangerous a not... In the end, she got cut...

Ramblings on Life...

I sometimes ask myself. Why did God create us human beings? He knows we will have to deal with all kind of hardships, complications of life, and trivial matters like relationships and quarrels with friends and family, and yet He created us.

Is there a hidden reason on why He created us?

The Star Mighty Minds...

I'm entering this competition called the Mighty Minds organized by The Star and RHB.

In today's The Star, there will be 60 teams competing in this competition, in the upper secondary category, the one I'm taking part in.

My school is sending two teams for the upper secondary category, but I don't think my school is sending students for the lower secondary category. Each team consists of 3 students. In my team, there is me, Zhean Wei and Sze Sing. In the other team, there is the bookworm, Xuelin, Wei Ping and Navine. I guess the other time will make it into the national level, because Xuelin is in there.

The contest will be held on the 18th this month, in Alor Star Mall...

I'm a little scared...

Life These Days...

As life goes on, you get to know yourself better and better, and realize how harsh life is. As the saying goes, "Life itself is one's harshest lessons in one's life."

Why must one go through so many lessons in life? The only de-stressing pill I have is by reading story books. I've been reading the The Five-Outers and Dog by Enid Bylton. This book has been around for the past 70 years. Imagine that!

I'm tired of wearing this mask. I'm tired of making people happy. I'm tired of dealing with everyone.

I'm going to be myself. Let them judge me. I'm who I am. I'm not going make everyone happy but myself unhappy. I'm not going to keep changing myself anymore to suit everyone. It's just impossible.

I'm just so fed up. I'm become so numb to everything around me.

I'm tired of being what you want me to be
Feeling so faithless, lost under the surface
I don't know what you're expecting of me
Put under the pressure of walking in your shoes

(Caught in the undertow just caught in the undertow)
Every step that I take is another mistake to you
(Caught in the undertow just caught in the undertow)

I've become so numb I can't feel you there
Become so tired so much more aware
I'm becoming this all I want to do
Is be more like me and be less like you

Can't you see that you're smothering me?
Holding too tightly, afraid to lose control
Cause everything that you thought I would be
Has fallen apart right in front of you

(Caught in the undertow just caught in the undertow)
Every step that I take is another mistake to you
(Caught in the undertow just caught in the undertow)
And every second I waste is more than I can take

I've become so numb I can't feel you there
Become so tired so much more aware
I'm becoming this all I want to do
Is be more like me and be less like you

And I know I may end up failing too
But I know you were just like me
With someone disappointed in you

I've become so numb I can't feel you there
Become so tired so much more aware
I'm becoming this all I want to do
Is be more like me and be less like you

I've become so numb I can't feel you there
I'm tired of being what you want me to be
I've become so numb I can't feel you there
I'm tired of being what you want me to be
