Update On My Grades...

I didn't attend school today, because of two reasons. First reason was the school invited some monks (I think) to give blessings for those who are taking PMR and SPM. As I'm not a Buddhist, I decided not to go school instead. My second reason was because today, my school had extra curriculum activities. Although I can get out early, I still have to wait for my bus to take me home, which is at 4:30 p.m. A pure waste of time.

Anyway, my friend told me History Paper 1 marks. I got 30 out of 40. My friend said highest was 35, and the number of people who got above 30 are few, not above 10 people, according to him. Oh well, I'll know my actual marks when I see them tomorrow at school.

Wish me luck tomorrow as I get my results back.

P.S. I think I'll fail Chinese this time for sure. Sigh.

Doomsday Tomorrow!

Chinese Papers tomorrow. I'm going to dig my grave now and bury myself inside.

My Exam Results... ARE BACK!

I think I have to work harder on my Maths. I got back my exam results for Maths, Additional Mathematics and English today, among them are my 2 best subjects!

I got 98 for Mathematics! I'm am happy, but not happy enough. I was aiming for perfection for this paper, but I dropped a mark in Paper 1 and 2 marks in Paper 2, sadly. I guess, it means I need more practice, which means more time spent on Mathematics.

English was okay. I did pretty badly for my literature and summary though. I only got 11 marks for my summary, from my usual 13 or 14. I guess I made a few serious errors. And I lost quite some marks in my literature, if I'm not mistaken about 7 or 8 marks were lost there. I do not know about my essay though, because I have not seen my essay paper yet, but I know I got 71 out of 85, which brings my total mark for English to 84!

Additional Mathematics was a let down for me. I thought I could do better, but yet I didn't. I think I will need to spend some time on it. Additional Mathematics is one subject that you need loads of practice on. I only got 68 for it. Although it's still an A2, I'm not happy about it. Someone please teach me differentiation, I lost at least 12 marks there. And I heard it's one of the hardest topics in Mathematics in Form 6. I need to get my basics right!

School Again...

Ah... After a week filled with activities, it's back to school! I'm NOT looking forward to it. Going back to school means 2 things to me, Chinese Exam! & Exam Marks!

I do not even want to think of how badly I did this trials. I hope this serves me as a good lesson to correct myself and improve myself for SPM!

The papers I'm expecting to get back tomorrow:
  1. Mathematics.
  2. Additional Mathematics.
  3. Physics.
  4. Bahasa Malaysia.
  5. Bahasa Inggeris.
Lets hope for the best. I know I didn't fail Mathematics or Additional Mathematics because the teacher said only one person failed Additional Mathematics, and I know who failed; and all passed Mathematics. Never mind, I'll know my results tomorrow. I hope it's not too disheartening.

World Longest Shot?

I stumbled upon this video in my friend's blog.

I somehow find it hard to believe.

But anything is possible.

Chocolate Cream Chip!!!

After dinner @ Chennai Curry House, Hooi Siah, my parents, my sister and I took a little detour to Starbucks Coffee! I'm not a coffee drinker, but I like their chocolate blended! Their chocolate blended is very creamy and rich in taste!

A funny thing though. Sungai Petani has Starbucks Coffee, and it's not a city. Alor Setar is a city, and WHERE IS STARBUCKS COFFEE??? Alor Setar is not fit to be called a city. Heh heh...

Starbucks Coffee located in Village Mall...
My Chocolate Cream Chip!!!

Chennai Curry House, Sungai Petani!

Yesterday, the Loh family and my family headed down to Sungai Petani to celebrate Uncle Hariddas's birthday. We celebrated it at Chennai Curry House! It's an Indian restaurant. It's a pity there are no restaurants like this here in Alor Setar. Alor Setar is way behind time, and it's a CITY!
Chennai Curry House, Sungai Petani.
Chennai Curry House is located near Village Mall in Sungai Petani! It's food is nice! I've always like Indian food from young! Try it, if you love Indian food!
The ambiance...
The menu...
We tried different kinds of drinks. Hooi Ling tried some mint drink. I had strawberry blended, without milk. My drink is the one with the yellow straw.
The drinks...
Food! Look at the food we ate! The bill for the whole meal was pretty high too... Haha...
Anyway, after that we headed back to Uncle Hariddas's house to cut the cake! A very happy birthday to Uncle Hariddas!

I've been so busy lately. I don't know why. All I know is, I have been playing squash quite often this week. Even during exam time. I think I played squash 3 times already this week.

I've something to blog. But, that will have to wait till later.

I can't keep my eyes open already.

Night all.

I had Chem tuition today, at Skor, I think. I'm not sure about the tuition name though. It sorta slipped my mind. Anyway, guess what I saw drawn on the chair:
You can't see the words clearly from this picture, because my handphone's camera is not very good. But let me tell you what it says, it says: "Careful! I will touch your ASS!".

Chairs are meant to be sat on, not drawn on. Why do people vandalize them?

Night Snapshots...

Went out with Jov, Tim, TH, my sis and my mum just now. We celebrated Tim's birthday! He'll turn 17 tomorrow! I'll post about that later.
Street lamp.
Just look how quiet the night-life in Alor Star is.

A Thought to Think About...

I was thinking. What would life without taking the education route? Jobless? Homeless? Penniless?

Education distracts us, from the main purpose of life. When exams are near, we leave God aside. Our main goal during exams, do well, get into a good college, and your future is secured. Did you know that, you can just be gone the next second? If God decides to take your life now, you can't say no. You have no choice. Why can't we use this time to do something more meaningful? Perhaps have an impact on somebody's life. Wouldn't you lead a happier life?

I dread it, when I think what would be the next step after SPM. Form 6? College? I always ask myself, "Do you want to sit there and do the same thing for the rest for your life? We have only one chance to live on Earth. When it's judgment day with God, when God asks you, "What have you done on Earth that is pleasing to me?" Are you going to reply "I've scored straight A's in every school and public examination. I've have worked in the same company for the rest of my life after that."" The thought of this makes me ponder real hard. I'm waiting for God to pick for me. I don't care if the job makes me a poor man, what I want is a enriching and fulfilling life, and perhaps with a girl I love. But not a purposeless life, a life full of misery, full of loneliness. It's just not worth living for. I rather die today, rather than dying tomorrow. But sadly, the choice is not mine to make.

Is this what God wants us to do? To study? To work? And die? Surely there must be more than this? I'm not condoning education is bad. But surely, God did not create us, just to do well in exams, working in the same old job until you retire, and die after that? I'm sure many of you are like that. I think I am becoming like one too, but, I rather not walk down this path.

Why can't there be a change? But, the problem is, what change?

Sigh. Life is like the universe, there is still much to explore in life. Full of wonders, and mysteries. Full of questions that are yet to be asked. Full of answers yet to be answered. Life is worth living, when you know your goal in life. But it's ain't worth living, if you are just going to waste your life away.

Another Grave Dug. Focus.

It's one of the times, I feel so beaten. I thought I was prepared, but actually I'm not.

Today, I had accounts, Paper 2.

I had spent my whole day reading through my tuition notes yesterday, and was confident that I could answer any questions that were coming up today.

Unfortunately, that didn't happen.

I had trouble balancing the accounts of the first question. I spent an hour trying to make the accounts balanced. In the end, I realized that time was running out, and I spent the remaining time doing the other questions. I was panicking already! In the end, out of the 4 questions that needed to be balanced, I only managed to balance 1, and I'm not even sure whether it's correct.


Trials has thought me a few harsh lessons, rather a wake up call to me. I know I'm going to fail 2 subjects, and this will affect me emotionally badly.

Throw away the distractions, especially facebook. It's time to focus!

You can do it, Daniel!

My Grave Dug.

I've unofficially failed Biology.

I felt totally
beaten when I was doing today's Biology Paper 2.

When I was doing the exam, after flipping through the paper,
I started
I just felt like
giving up,
I just felt like
tearing the whole paper apart,
I just felt like
I just felt

Must my whole life go around these

It's high time I start studying thoroughly, and start focusing on what I want. Before it's too

Leave me alone. I need to focus.

This flower caught my eye. I couldn't resist but take a photo of it. Anyone has ideas of its name?

Dinner at G Cafe...Give

Thursday night de-stressing outing with Loh + his sisters and Jovaynne. Guess what was the first thing we talked about?

How was trials. Haha. Anyway, we headed to G Give Cafe located near Keat Hwa 1. It's in the same row as Old Town (Keat Hwa 1 branch).

I was surprised to see the menu to just be a sheet of paper, NOT laminated, my menu that was. The others' menus were laminated though.

They had many of varieties of drinks, but most of them were not available. They had run out of vanila, which was a pity. In the end, I had orange juice. They did not have much variety on food though.

Jovaynne's drink. Coffee!
It looks nice right? But Jovaynne said it was diluted. Maybe it's the good photography. :-P
I can't remember what the brown drink was. But the blue is chewing gum smoothie!
Actually, the blue has the flavor of chewing gum. And it really tastes like one! They had another drink, called blue vanilla. But no one dared to try. Ever heard of BLUE vanilla?


This was what Loh had, Tom Yam Rice
I don't know if it's nice a not. You'll have to ask him.
Upper left - Golden Fried Rice, Lower left - Some fried rice (can't remember), upper right - fish with rice, lower right - chicken with rice
If you wanna know whether the dishes are nice, you'd have to ask the people who ate them! =) I had a little of the Chicken with Rice though, it was nice! =)

What I had:

Black Pepper Chicken with Rice!
It was delicious! Just simply delicious! I do not mind having a second round!

Overall, if you'd ask me whether I'd come back again to this restaurant. I'd say maybe. The food are not too bad. But the service is slow. I think there are only 2 people running the shop, so you can't blame them. Not a good place to go for makan if you are in a hurry though...

Guess what is this:
