Right? Right? Her voice is amazing! With a little polishing up, she could be as good as Charice!
Help recognize her talent and lets make her famous. After all, I think she is definitely worth it!

Ok, so last Thursday was probably the LONGEST day of my life! It was the day I had to go for a... wait for it... a chess tournament.
I told you this post is gonna be random!
As for dad, he said I was gonna lose. Thanks mom and dad! I feel a whole lot confident now!
In the end, I won 2 rounds. Out of 7.
We have to go against different opponents every round. Out of all 7 opponents I've faced, there was only one opponent I will remember for quite a while. And its not because her skills were extremely good or extremely bad, no.
It was her handshake.
I don't know if that is even possible, but her handshake is the grosses handshake I've ever come across! Like, the first thing that popped in my mind when I first shook her hands before the game was 'Eww...'.
I'm not sure how to describe it, but holding her hand was like holding a dead fish. Her hands were cold even on a hot day, they're small and soft. Too soft. Like a tofu. And her hands were wet. Cold and wet. Eww.
Most people I shook hands with were firm and warm. Even if its slightly damp, its still warm and firm. Shaking her hands was like shaking hands with a corpse or something like that.
After I shook her hands, I had to restrain myself from wiping my hands on my pinafore in front of her.
We came back from the tournament in the evening waay after our normal school hours. After that, I had to go for Kumon classes.
Yes, another interesting fact. I do take Kumon classes for maths. Its really hard, ok?
I'm currently doing Trigonometry, finding out the maxima and minimas of the given equations and graphs. It was so hard that I was the last student to leave and I was stuck with the math teacher sitting right next to me!
I was not used to this teacher (Mr. N) because he's new and my old teacher quit because of her church activities. But because I really didn't know how to do my work, I had to give him a chance. So far he's quite alright.
The only problem I have is that everytime he gets confused, he tends to stick his tongue out and wags it left and right. Which I found rather distracting and... disturbing.
By the time I was done, it was nearly midnight and the place was closing. Just as I was heading out, the 'boss' of the Kumon centre asked Mr. N if he was teaching Add maths and he said yes. Then she told him that she's looking for an add maths teacher for her daughter and so was I (for me) because my mom told her.
I didn't know what he said later because after that, I hurried out of the place. Untill now, I'm not sure why did I do that. Its not that I don't like this teacher, I think he's quite alright. I just dashed out before I could hear his reply.
But enough of my babbling.
HAPPY EASTER DAY my dear readers!! Jesus has risen from the dead and we must celebrate!! Here's my nail art for the occasion.
I was wearing clear nail polish to school to day to create this design quickly before mass. Luckily, nobody noticed. Hahaha!!

My picture looks crappy. Next time, my official Driver's License picture will be waay better!
So today was my first diving lesson. I was pretty much relieved that my driving instructor speaks English so I'm more comfortable in asking him questions.
First thing he taught me was how to check the car engine. Which means I have to open up the car battery, check the engine oil, etc, etc...
And while I was sticking my hand into different parts of the car engine, I had to be careful not to ruin my nails at the same time. Yeah, I did my nails for the occasion. I just had to.
But it was an awesome design. Look!
Cheetah prints, the symbol of speed and power!
Anyway, after checking on the car, we drove on the main road. After my ordeal with driving with my mom, I could pretty much take anything that could possibly scare any new driver without freaking out.
During the ride, my driving instructor said when he first saw me, he thought I was a Malay... wtf...
Am I THAT dark!? Oh man....
Everything went pretty much smoothly. That was until when we about to reach the traffic lights, the car died. Just like that.
It really took me by surprise. I thought I got everything right; I could change the gears just fine, I drove at the right speed, I could manage the car just fine. What did I do wrong?
The worst part is that we were blocking traffic and I couldn't revive the car engine. Even the driving instructor couldn't restart the car!
Eventually, we pushed the car to the side of the road while another driving instructor who happened to pass by came to help. I was relieved that I didn't do anything wrong but it was the car that had the problem.
I wonder what was wrong, we checked the car before we left and it was just fine. Maybe it was the wires, I dunno....
So in the end, my driving lessons were cut short and I had to take a ride on the back seat with another learner driver who happened to be driving pass back to the Academy. The student who was driving didn't seem very sure about changing gears and she drives pretty fast.
I was scared....
But on the bright side, I found out that my time was almost up by the time the car broke down so I didn't really miss much. I just needed to know how to drive that's all.
I can't wait till the next lesson!

5. I made a poster of my friends doing plastic surgery and stuck it at the back of the class a day before April Fools day! HAHAHAHA!!!
I'm sure you guys are pretty much aware of Rebecca Black who became a viral hit on YouTube within a week with over 60 million views. Unfortunately though, she's famous for the worst song ever!
Don't believe me? Just listen to her song.
If you just click on the link which leads to YouTube and look at the number of people who like or dislikes the video, you'd be shocked to see that nearly 90% of the viewers HATED the video!
Apparently, this 13-year-old's parents paid the production company to record her song along with an accompanying video to go with it and posted it on YouTube. Though she is hurt by the tons of haters comments, she refused to put down the video because it would 'please the haters'.
That I gotta admire. The girl's got guts.
I admire her courage, but that doesn't mean I like her song. The thing is, the song is too repetitive with too many 'Fridays' and 'weekends' in her lyrics. Its too boring! Plus, the video is kinda cheesy and as for her voice... tak sedap lah...
A lot of people said that she's like the next Justin Bieber. I'm not exactly a fan of JB, but if I had to choose between Rebecca Black or 1000 Biebers, give me the Biebers anyday man...
Sorry girl, it just ain't gonna work...
Oh yeah! Back to the poster. Luckily, for the sake of Rebecca and her non existent Malaysian fans, the poster is an April Fool's joke; there's no such thing as 31 days in June.
How was your April Fools??
