Party cancelled

PM announced that all new year celebrations to be cancelled to go into mourning for the tragic tsunami incident. So we're cancelling the party.

Nope, I'm kidding. Seriously, it's gonna a get-together for some of us who haven't met for a long long time, so I don't think it's really nice to scrap the idea now. Besides, we're not even celebrating with champagne or stuff. Just a simple dinner with old friends.

But my heart is still with those who have lost loved ones last Sunday, no doubt. May the darkest days soon be over. For those of you who believe in God, may God bless you. I'm quoting this from a friend, "When God gives you an obstacle, He knows you can take it." Nicely said.

Aloha everyone...

I'm just trying to post here in my faculty's computer lab and see if it works. I won't be able to confirm though cuz I can't log into my blog, I only get access to my account.

So, it's 'that' time of the year again. New Year's Eve celebration and a party, woohoo!! Ok, I don't wanna sound all hyped up; just had a test, and there's another one tommorrow. But ditching the academical worries aside, this year we won't be doing barbeque like the previous years. I'm thinking of western food still, as in spaghetti ala carbonara, grilled chicken wings, garlic bread, coleslaw and lemon lime bitter cocktail, all which I've just learned recently! Now, let me assure you that I've tried making them before, and they don't suck. So Nic, wipe that stupid smirk off your face, okay? Dude, you should have some confident in my cooking, I've won the cooking competition before after all.

I don't think the menu's gonna fill up you bunch of monsters' stomachs, so please help figure out something that I can cook and give me a call, ok? Till then, have a HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

Merry Christmas...

Dear Santa,

I've been a very good boy this year, so you'd better be granting my Christmas wishes this time. For this Christmas, I hope to get a streamyx line so I no longer have to come to these pathetic cybercafes to surf the net. These crazy kids (I think most of them are less than 10 years old) beside me are watching the clip of the american who was beheaded a few months back. Sick children. And people wonder why there are so much violence in our society. They are cheering with joy when the guy's head fall off. I also wish that some company will accept me for the industrial training which I have been applying for the past 6 months. Any company will do. I am pathetically desperate now and if I don't get any training I won't be able to finish my degree in time. This is one sad Christmas.

To be honest, Christmas has never been my favourite festive season. I don't know why, but I always have this lonely feeling whenever this time of the year arrives. Probably because most of my close friends will be celebrating with their loved ones (family, girlfriends, boyfriends, gay partners, lesbian lovers, you get the picture) or busy attending church services or getting mobbed in Bintang Walk or not in the country. Meanwhile, my family will always be having plans for Christmas, but somehow I'm never part of it. But I won't be having much time to dwell since I have to prepare for my midsem tests next week. Now that's something to look forward to.

Anyway, my relationship with my coursemates is getting better, fortunately. We've had a couple of football games together (it's a wonder really, to know that they actually know how to play) and agreed to make it a weekly thing. There's also talks of forming a biotech club and steamboat gatherings. Life in university is finally looking, well, alive. I'm having my fingers crossed.

So what's with the latest news in blogsphere? People I know don't seem to blog anymore, I wonder why. Really hope to hear from you guys. Keep in touch buddies.

I really got to go now, the gory video clip these kids beside me are playing makes me wanna puke.

But all those aside, have a MERRY CHRISTMAS my friends. May the new year be a wonderful one for each and everyone of you.

back and blogging temporarily

And I'm back again. Nothing much happened in the past couple of weeks, but I guess I can crap a whole load of shit if I put in some effort. And yeah, I'm blogging in a crowdy cybercafe again.

Went to this event on Tuesday, alone, cuz my coursemates who were performing in it insisted. I reluctantly agreed (only because I am such a gentleman, and not the flirtacious bastard as rumoured) and thought it might be a great way to relax after my first test of the semester- which by the way I'm in the third week of my new sem.

It's pretty much ho-hum throughout the performance, partly because I'm not really interested in classical dances, and also because there's this forum on homosexuality going on back in my former college which I wanted to attend. No, I'm not interested in homosexuality, it's just that Baby Betty (the infamous transexual who was a former resident in the college and arguably the prettiest one around, which is kinda sad, really) was rumoured to be making a guest appearance. Anyway, the classical dance performance wasn't all that bad. I sorta like the lotus pond thing where the dancers moved as though they were on rollers, and the second part which portrays the chinese ancestors' village life. Nice touch in the dance where they performed as villagers harvesting paddy fields and how men and women fall in love in a sampan-rowing scene (I love the way they moved in synchrony like they were really on sampans). Other than that, I couldn't decipher what the choreographer was trying to express in the other lotus dances and the silk road dances. All I can see was dancers dressed up like bamboos, umbrellas and grasshoppers running across stage without purpose. Well, you can't ask a lot, right?

So back to studies, we're supposed to be making the online confirmation of our subject registration these couple of days, but the lastest mess-up in the server created havoc around campus. Those who did the confirmation online on Wednesday had their credit hours deducted for no apparent reason, and undergrads were left with 10, 8, even 6 credit hours for the semester. What a screw up. Lucky me for being in lecture halls that time, I could've been one of those victims, hahahaha... But it's not all bad news, at least a cute junior from my former college came up to me to seek help. Funny situation, because I don't even know her, and it's real flattering that she knows who I am in the first place, muahahaha... Maybe I should've asked for her name and hp number. Wait. No, I SHOULD have asked for her name and number. Damn...

Other than that, my results came out already, and I did 'somewhat well' in the last sem, but with an obvious drop in CGPA (Cumulative Grades Point Average). A GPA of 3.33, and now 3.56 in CGPA. Out from the first class (3.70 and above) now. No more sleepless nights worrying how to maintain my grades. It is good news to me if the rest of my coursemates ain't getting 4 flat (4.00 GPA), but unfortunately they do. This is insane. I am now officially the only biotech undergrad who has never been in the Dean's List, and doomed to be the only biotech class of 03/04 undergrad to NOT obtain a first class CGPA.

The only thing that makes me feel good about myself is that I'm surrounded by a bunch of pathetic schoolboys with no lives playing stupid online games in the cybercafe. These kids are so gonna mess up their futures, wahahahahaha...

And last but not least, MERRY CHRISTMAS to all of you. I know, it's too early, but I may not be around for the next few weeks, so what the heck.
