Random Readup #6

Ahhh.... its been so long since I've updated my blog. Okay, one word to decribe the 2 weeks of school: Boring!

I've got most of my exam results so far except Physics and P. Moral. I'm telling you, my exams results are soo teruk, especially my BM. All I can say is when I saw the results was Ouch!

Not surprisingly, I got the highest score for English, again. Sometimes, I really do get bored getting the highest score in class again and again. I want a challenge. Someone who's really at my tail and keeps me getting all fired up.

Yes siree, those were the good ol' days!

I was hoping to get the top score for Add Maths as it was one of my favorite subjects ever. But, I got second place *sigh*

At least there wasn't much competition, most of my classmates didn't do so well. So sad...

Oh yeah, and I had a fever since last Monday so I didn't go to school. Thank God! I had to take an Oral exam for English and Malay! So I made myself as sick as possible to avoid school until Wednesday, when we have no English and Malay subjects for the rest of the week.

Easter is coming soon. After what I did, I really need to go to confession now :S

Holiday Summary

Aww... the one week holidays have come and gone and it seemed soo short! Why does school have to start tomorrow? Bummer...

Anyway, its time that I look back at what I did during the very short holidays. Sorry I haven't been updating my blog as frequently as I should :S

I started my holiday one day earlier by going to Genting Highland on a Friday! Heehee...

Check out mine and Sam's new jacket, we got it for our birthday :D

The guys have the same jacket except its black. Thus forming our jacket group XD

During that time, we even had the guts to take a dumb picture like this :

Nothing much happened after that, so, I'll just list out the rest of the stuff I did during the holidays.


we watched Alice in Wonderland in 3D!


Went to Leisure Mall to get mom's new phone.


Went ice skating with my cousins! Yay!


Finally went back to Karate class. Too bad I missed my would-be first international tournament *sigh*

How was your holiday? :)

My Sweet 16th Birthday

What's up, my dear readers? Sorry it took so long to post out my updates on what I did last week. My laptop became extremely slow probably because of all the pictures I stored, the speakers couldn't work anymore and I lost the letter 'J' on my keyboard. So, I sent it off for repair. The shop wasn't opened for days which also contributed to the delay of my blog updates.

Now that my laptop is well again, I might as well update now before I forget.

Ok, so where was I? Oh right! My birthday.

So like I said earlier, since I couldn't celebrate, I did something I wanted to do for quite sometime and that is Paintballing! Its like a gun filled with little capsules of paint and you have to shoot your enemies with it, like a video game!

Sure, I don't mind getting paint all over me as well as bruises, but, that's part of the fun, right?

I went to Sunway Lagoon with a few friends and cousins and we headed off to the extreme park located way at the back. We started off with the paintball targets.

That's my brother's friend, and cousin Jon at the back there with his eyes closed for some reason...

Unfortunately, the 3 on 3 paintball war game was unavailable as it was already booked for 2 days. We then headed off and came across the archery section and began to shoot some arrows.

Don't be fooled by this picture, I totally suck at this; I only made the target once and after that, its arrows everywhere!

Once we were done with that, we went dirt biking (at least, that's what I think its called)!

As our group was too big, we decided that the guys go first.

As the guys started their engines, my brother Daniel got too excited and he pressed the accelerator too hard and went on top of somebody! HaHAhAHA!!

Before we girls get to go, we have to wear these old shower caps...

Heehee! We look like the lunch ladies from a cafeteria.

After a while, Jon came back alone. He said that his legs went soft and basically, he was too scared to continue. So, I hired him as our photographer while I'm gone dirt biking.

When it was our turn, I got really excited (but not too excited like Daniel) and put on my helmet and gear.
Behind me was Sam (it was her birthday too. She's 15 this year).

And finally, my friend, Roann.

Until now, I still don't get what Jon means by your legs 'getting soft'. I had such a blast! As for Sam, she quit halfway because she couldn't seen to be able to control the vehicle properly. Everytime there was a turn, she'd get stuck.

Then, a staff would help her get the vehicle back in place, lets her take over and she gets stuck again! So, we continued without her. We went through a little forest with trees and stuff all the way uphill. It was a rough journey, but it was fun!

Then came the downhill part. I was scared to go down at first, but the guy told me not to use the accelerator and it all made sense again!

After that, we decided to go kayaking. Before that, I changed my shirt just in case I get all wet.

On special note, before we set off the guy was like, "If I catch you taking any pictures, I'm gonna fine you RM300."

And I went like, "Aww... really?"

But as you can see, I took the pictures anyway. He's probably trying to pull my leg.

Then came the best part; the Flying fox!

We were all geared up and we fly!

It was amazing! I went flying over the waters and saw the whole theme park!

When we've all had landed at the bottom, we went for a snack.

After a bit or two, we went bungee jumping.

Well, that's all folks! We had the best of times and this would be the best birthday ever!

Happy Sweet Sixteen!!

Yes everybody, I'm finally sixteen at last! I've received so many birthday wishes from everybody on facebook and I'm so overwhelmed by the number of people who came to wish me. Usually, I only expected about 5 or 6 people at most, but, my e-mail inbox received over 100 e-mails in 1 day!

So thank you everybody! I feel truly blessed to have such wonderful friends like you :D

Initially, for my 16th birthday, I wanted to throw a birthday party which I haven't had one ever since I was 9 years old. Unfortunately, for us christians, we are going through the season of lent in which we aren't allowed to have parties or celebrations whatsoever.

So, I decided that since I couldn't do that, I might as well do something that I've always wanted to do....

Its late now, but I'll be sure to keep you posted on what I did for my sweet 16th birthday.

Milestone of Independance

I know to most people, this may not be one of the most astonishing or impressive stories one have heard of before. But to me, I believe it is an accomplishment of independance. Yes, I've finally used the public bus for the first time in my life!

Before that, it never occured to me that I've done many things most kids my age don't do; I have snorkelled among sharks, became a scuba diver, traveled by airplane without an adult, gone rock climbing, been parasailing, became a young journalist, and many more! I've done so many things, yet, I can't take the public bus?

Recently, the fact that I have not been on a public bus bothered me for quite sometime as I'm turning 16 this friday and all this time, my parents were my only transport. Not anymore!

After I finished my extra classes, I headed straight for the bus stop in front of my school. As I waited for the bus to arrive, I began to have second thoughts; what if I don't make it? What if I went to the wrong place instead? What am I supposed to do anyway?

All these thoughts swirlled in my mind and I began to feel nervous. Its hard to do something you've never done before especially being all alone without anybody to guide you. 10 minutes later, a bus arrived and the rest of the students began to board the bus. There's no turning back now. Its now or never.

I was the last one to enter the bus. I learned that my trip only takes 50 cents which is cheap. Lucky for me, I met a friend who was taking the public bus too. As the bus began to move, I quickly learned what is there to know about the public bus. It never occured to me that you can stop the bus anytime by pushing the red button located at the rails.

The bus went past my house and straight for the next bus stop. When we've finally reached there, everybody went for the bus exchange while I walked the rest of the way back home. Thank goodness my house is less than a 5 minute walk!

Mom was surprised to see me back early and all alone. She didn't believe me when I first told her that I took the public bus in the beggining. But, she believed me in the end.

I'm so proud that I can do things on my own without guidance. This is another milestone towards my journey of independance :)
