The Pain. The Harrowing Pain. And the Anger

I'm glad the school holidays are here. Unfortunately, they have brought quite a lot of disappointment in the past 3 days. I'm actually scared of what is to come the next 2 weeks.

I'll only be writing about my main frustration which is about the cancellation of our vacation to Australia thanks to my little brother

I HATE HIM!!! He burned 4 fucking grand on a Sony VAIO laptop he doesn't even fucking need. His laptop costs more than a round trip to Australia for fucking out loud. He's the one who insisted on going to Australia and he's the one who was so adamant we save. And then he prances along and burns 2 grand on the PS3, RM200++ on a computer game and 4 FUCKING grand on a laptop!! Why the laptop? So he can play with it around the house. FUCKING FUCK!!!!!!!!! I waited until AFTER PMR for a laptop and he gets it just like that. I friggin' hate him

I'd kill him myself if he wasn't my brother.

The latter is what really ticks me off.

P.S.
Enjoy the holidays everyone!

Au revoir

The 2 Weeks of Horror are Over

Finally! At long last! The exams are OVER! EST was good. A little worried about my report at the end but otherwise, I'm great. The beginning of the semester break hasn't been off to the best start but I won't divulge into that. P&C stuff. Shh.

But all considered, today has been good. I played PS3 from 3-7 then 9-10. Muahaha.

Tomorrow I'm going to be escorting the teachers for Teachers' Day & then I am free! Yippee.

There's really a lot more I want to blog about but I'm not really in the mood to go any further. Like I said above, "the beginning of the semester break hasn't been off to the best start but I won't divulge into that."

Quite frankly, I'm amazed I didn't completely blank out...

Nighttime Escapade

Hi everybody.

Just got back from dinner. We went to visit a family friend who was in town from Holland -- Nina. She's a Malaysian but her husband is Dutch. Food was brought by everybody. Hehe. There was a lot of food. My family brought Domino's, Feisal & Nadia (another family friend) brought KFC & Nina, our gracious hostess had ordered McDonald's. Oh shoot. I forgot about the McFlurry she bought. Oops. Sorry Nina.

Anyway, going to her house is always fun. Her son, Johan is very interactive. Nice kid. Problem is, he tends to speak Dutch so we're all enjoying hearing him speak the few phrases that he knows. He's really grown from the last time I saw him. It's been a year or so, I think.

Feisal & Nadia are -- somewhat -- newlyweds so they brought along their photo albums and we had a lot of good laughs over the pictures and old stories. My brother played on Nina's piano/keyboard a bit. He's quite good. Considering he doesn't study music outside of what is being taught in school. He's also good at the MusicDJ app on his phone.

Frank -- Nina's husband -- wasn't there. He was in Holland for business purposes. Great guy. Really tall and lanky. Great dad to his son. I'm glad my parents raised me in a similar environment -- interactive, safe, proper, attentive and curiosity-allowed. A number of my cousins have their curiosity 'killed', so to speak. It means that their parents just give them orders instead of talking to them and when there's a restriction, they give old wives' excuses instead of explaining why. A lot of people I know who really pay attention in raising their kids say it is VERY tiring so they do not have that many. But families with a lot of kids, often the kids are more or less neglected. It's kind of sad.

There I go again, straying off topic. The dinner was great. Simple food, good people, a lot of laughs. A good night escapade. Hehe.

What I don't understand about the conversations we had after dinner at Nina's was she said, "he's a teenager and he's talking about cars." We were talking about cars because Feisal asked what car I would want and I answered either a Corvette or a Mustang and then I went on ranting a bit about it. Need to ask Mama & Abah about it.

Aw man. Tomorrow I have Chemistry. Shoot. I have read up. But I'm afraid it's not enough. Better pack the references. I don't want to open my bag to find it void of the proper references -- like what happened to me today for Biology.

Au revoir & bonne nuit (good night)

Someone Found the Book of the Dead..

OK maybe not quite that literally but it HAS been a while since I last blogged. It's been 13 days. WOW. Almost 2 weeks. Anyway, Mother's Day has gone by, Syaza & Syarul have moved to different schools, I got a new position on the rugby team, I'm turning down the chance to go to Perkhemahan Peringkat Negeri for Bomba and exams have started. So much has gone by.

On Mother's Day, we didn't really do anything... Hehe. But my family isn't that big a celebrator of Mother's Day & Father's Day... So my mom was cool about it. She cooked and it was fantastic. Missed her cooking.

Syarul went to Victoria's Institution (V.I.) and Syaza... Um... I'm not sure where she went. Wonderful friend I am. I think she went to MRSM. Oh so did Syahirah and... Syuhada I think. T-T. I'm a bad friend aren't I?

About rugby, there's a tournament coming up in June. 10 a-side instead of the regular 15 a-side. So the game is gonna be faster. We're training on that. If it's on 15 a-side, I'll be one of the Wings. For 10 a-side, I'll be on the forward (the one who tackles). Woohoo! Specifically, the hooker. Yeah, yeah. Laugh it up. But if you saw me play, you'd be bitting your nails. If you want more info, just let me know or look up Wikipedia. I love being on the forward -- you really get into the heart of the game.

Tomorrow is the selections for the State-level Bomba Camp. I'm not going. It's more of bad timing. Sorry, Faris but I have to focus on my exams at the moment. So sorry.

Today was the first day of the exams. Agama paper 1 & 2. T-T. I hope I did OK...

The Good Things in Life Come in Small Packages

Today I woke up at 7 -- despite it being a public holiday. Rugby practice at 7:30. Arrived at 7:40. Arrived at the same time with Dagan. We arrived at the same time & we were the first to show up. After most of the team showed up, we started warm-ups and training. At around 10-11, the MSU kids showed up and we had a small friendly. Played 4 quarters and 10 a-side. We lost 5-1. Not bad considering we went up against college kids. We wrapped up at 12. There goes half-a-day. One of my teammate's dad is MY dad's classmate. Talked with him a bit.

At home, I down a can of Hansen's Ginger Ale. Damn those things are good. Better than 100 plus if you're exhausted. Before hitting the shower, I helped my mom to prepare mashed potato. Then I offered to help with the pan-fried meat, only to get shooed away. Hehe. Lunch was awesome. Then again, it's my mom who cooked mostly, I shouldn't be surprised. What I was surprised by however is that my mashed potato turned out so good. Though my mom threw in a few ingridients but compared to what my mom did for dinner, it wasn't the same. Strange isn't it?

Anyway, something came up last minute so I had to miss Friday prayers. Sorry, Arif. Afterwards, I sat out on the terrace on our newly received garden furniture and browsed the net on my laptop. Hehehe. I love my HP Mini. It's spectacular. Then my lil bro played PS3 so I watched. We had snack while watching Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa with my mom. She hadn't gotten around to watching it.

It has been a simple, stay-at-home day. Well, mostly stay-at-home. But it's been great. Good food, good game, good life. Alhamdulillah.

Now I am wrapping up this post while listening to Tush by ZZ Top.
