Locked Out!

Yeah, I am locked out of the bedroom I had been sleeping in for the past week!! Help!!! Tukang kunci, where are you?!

It's like this: Around 8 pm after we had taken our KFC dinner, my brother found out that we were locked out of the master bedroom. Why? Somebody (I suspect it's me - I can't remember) accidentally banged the door against the wall and caused the doorknob to lock on its own... *pengsan*

How about keys then? Well, we tried every single key available in the house but there isn't any that fits. Amazingly, there are two keys which fit another door but not the one that is locked... talk about irony, people! And to rub salt to our wounds, we realized that there is a remote possibility that the right key could be inside the room that we are locked out of because my family has a habit of keeping keys in the bedroom... *double pengsan*

So, we can't possibly call a tukang kunci because it's a Sunday, plus it's already at night. So, we (mom, brother and I) are going to sleep in the living room tonight. Well, we could sleep in the other two rooms in the house, but I have no idea why my mom mooted the idea to bunk in the living room. The worst thing out of this whole incident is that my beloved blanket and pillow are locked in the room. And, we might be buffet dinner for mosquitoes - yuck!

But on the bright side, I get to watch tv until I doze off - although that is the only good thing I can ever think of right now...

Moral of the story: Don't bang the door unnecessarily!

Grand Dinner?

Been getting emails from ausmat 19's yahoo group about the inevitable Grand Dinner...
Do I even need reminders about that?
I am kinda regretting my decision to go to the dinner. Knowing myself, I would rather waste the RM100 than attend a probably mindless function.
But I already made up my mind a few months ago. After all, most of my classmates will be there.

*sigh*... but what should I wear? I don't have any dress and I am not going to spend my precious money on something as trivial as a dress. I think I am going to turn up in baju kurung, the same one I wear to class on "Baju Kurung Monday" and "Baju Kurung Friday".

Anyone with me?

I'm hooked on...

the soundtrack for anime "NANA". This anime has some of the best ending and opening themes I have ever heard! My favourite is "A Little Pain" by Olivia. She provided the singing voice for the character Reira in the anime. Totally awesome! Currently downloading them like crazy!! Kyaaa~~

<<-- That's Olivia getting into her element... totally cool~~!!

And not to mention, Toki wo Kakeru Shoujo (The Girl Who Leapt Through Time) aka Tokikake. Totally cool movie. The characters are animated plainly but the enormous amount of details for this movie is mind-boggling! The animation is very good! And I like the two songs featured in this movie: Garnet and Kawaranai Mono, both by Hanako Oku. She has such sweet voice but I have one complaint: her songs are hard to sing!!!

<<--- Makoto, the main character, literally leaps when she needs to time travel. Think it's fun? Watching her do it makes me go "Ouch!" each time...

SACE exams...

... is finally over!!! The super-hellish days in Ausmat has come and gone! Honestly, it wouldn't be that bad if I hadn't come down with a super-bad-recurring fever and terrible cough.

The first two papers - ESL and Physics were terrible enough without the illness. Then came Tuesday night, the inevitable dawned on me. My throat felt ticklish. And then painful. I remember telling myself, 'This is not good.' But I continued studying in the study room anyway. On Wednesday, my predictions came true. My head was dizzy and hazy and I couldn't even walk straight. The worst thing was: THE NEXT PAPER IS MATH!!! I remember sleeping early that night - 10pm, even earlier than my roomie Lee Kuan - at the expense of the next day's ultra-important paper which is Maths (=.= lll).

I was so afraid that I will die during the exams that I went back to TI on friday, so that my parents could nurse me back to health. It was a tough decision to make, because I couldn't study at home. Too many distractions and I would be busy sleeping at home because of the stupid fever. At least, in Akasia, I could study - with so many comrades around me. Anyway, I was back at home and one of the first things I had to do when I reached TI was, of course, make a visit to the doc. The doctor took my temperature and it was 39.6 degree Celcius! Damn high lah dude! The doc said I had an infection. So, during the weekends my parents treated me like a princess - a very sick princess, that is. They would touch my forehead and my palm to gauge my temperature whenever they see me - it was a strange, strange experience.

My diet for the next few days consist of purely water and bread. In fact, I ate bread from friday to wednesday morning. Talk about being famished! I can even wear my jeans tighter than usual! Well basically, guys, don't attempt to be sick during exams 'cos it will rob you off your energy to study until late at night. I was so afraid of my own fever that I slept early every single day aroung 10.30pm even though I would rather burn the midnight oil and study Bio&Chem the whole night long. So, if you see me around dispensing the advice 'Take care of your health during exams', I am NOT kidding.
