My mum was driving past Brickfields and there was a crowd. There were many policemen and also many students. I wondered why there was such a commotion. As my mum drove past the police, I saw an old man (he did not look young), lying on the ground with blood on his head or so it seems.
In my mind, I kept asking, who would do such a thing? Would someone have killed him? It couldn’t be that he did this to his ownself. Life is so fragile, and yet, it was just taken away.
May he rest in peace.

What do we do in cars?
- We read magazines while we wait for someone
- We listen to the radio and perhaps call when there is a cue to call
- We perhaps sms our friends
- We perhaps look out and enjoy the beautiful view
- or we just sleep
But, today, something unexpected happen. Well, I didn't expect that. A man, while driving, was changing his clothes. I didn't mean to look at it but heck, the scenery of the city at night was something I've never appreciated before. And right before me was a man who took off his shirt and put on another white shirt! It is even more outrageous for me to think about it when he was driving! (He didn't wear his safety belt.)
Note to you guys, don't ever do this. It's dangerous...

Today was the Physics paper. I woke up at 5am and it would be the last time I’m ever doing it for Physics. Well, the paper wasn’t that hard but there were some questions which I couldn’t answer. What made me puzzled was the essay. My essay is short although I’ve fulfilled the requirements of the question. I’m just afraid that I might have missed out a couple or more points. Many thought the paper was okay, some thought that the paper was easy. I don’t know. I find it moderately difficult. Heck, all the cramming on PET and I could not answer the question. I would never have thought that they would want to ask a mathematical question. I was expecting a theoretical one though.
By the time I finished the first booklet, I felt as if three-quarters of my brain have been sucked off and I remain with a quarter which was freezing. Yes, it was so cold that my brain could not work and that I could not think. So, two down and 3 more to go. (I am very very sleepy) So, I met a couple more familiar faces. When most of us thought that we won’t be meeting each other during our exams, well, we still do. And I did meet my friends from other classes.
Enough about Physics for now, it’s time to move on. I went to Carefour (or so it’s spelt) after the exam with my mum. We thought that having lunch there would be a good idea. Now I know why not many people hit the food court. Not only was the service provided inefficient but rude too. No wonder restaurants attract more customers. Although it’s just a food court, heck, even the food court in MidValley is doing way better. The price of the food is not the issue. Rather, it is the more of the quality of food and the service. I so would not want to go back there again.
I can’t wait for Christmas to come. I know it is a little early to say so but I just can’t help but love the Christmas celebration. The snowflakes, snowman, reindeers, Santa, Disney Channel movies etc. Last year, I did not get to do anything because I was busy moving from Ipoh to KL and preparing for college. The good thing is, after this exam, I will be having holidays until February. Hopefully, I’d get into the Uni that I want and everything starts all over again. But for now, I just want to finish my exams and finals. I can’t stop bragging and rambling over small issues. I am just so agitated, pressures, annoyed with the exams but yet, relieved once it’s over…

So, I had English today and I did not have enough time to finish my essay. The points were EVERYWHERE and it was so darn CONFUSING! Not to mention, the second part of listening was rather tedious when it comes to categorizing the points. Sometimes, I just do not understand what they are trying to say when the person speak so fast. Besides, the extended response was rather confusing. The graphs were attached to an article. In that case, how should I cite it? Should I have cited it differently or not? Oh well, it’s better losing marks for the citation than for the whole essay.
This year, the question was: Should online learning be encouraged? And for some reasons, I said yes. Somehow, I felt as if I have deviated because what I wrote was found to be unacceptable at first. However, after further elaboration, those who I talked to said that it should be okay depending on how I express my points. On the other note, I am feeling ecstatic that English is over. 1 paper down, 4 more to go!
I fired at my English paper. However, the missile I sent bounced back and headed straight for me! Darn momentum… I managed to avoid it but there were bruices. I never knew English could hurt. Seriously, I am glad to get some stuff over with such as the topic sentence, thesis statements, citations and concluding sentences. I will never forget two words though that my lecturer constantly stresses on: TEXT-SENSITIVE. Yeah, I did not remember it until the trials but, heck, I remembered it during finals and that’s what matters.
Okay, for something unrelated to English, stuffed animals are becoming vicious! ‘Run for your lives!‘ (Jacelyn, 2007) That was the weirdest dream I had. How could cuddly soft toys suddenly turn so violent? It was as if they had a mind of their own. Who else was in my dream? The whole of G3 and a couple of friends who I haven’t been meeting in ages and a lot of unknown people. Somehow, these animals were as if looking for food and unfortunately, in my dream, we humans were the food…. ze magnific fooode. Oh wow, I didn’t know we were in high demands. I was running away with Jacelyn, searching for a place to hide.
The setting is weird. It was a stadium and the lion (stuffed animal) from Lion King was breaking through the brick walls. On the outer walls was the college- the stairs, classrooms and everything. Then, the lion was coming for me and Jacelyn when we ran just in time to save ourselves. I was more afraid of the shadow eagle (though it was not a soft toy but hey, it guided the gigantic stuffed animals to float right to us! So, it’s practically evil…)
But, I would never forget the one soft toy I loved most, ze coww… It was my soft toy that I am running away from. And she was my Christmas gift from my brother. Why on earth am I avoiding her??!! hahaha… The tension is so getting into my head. Lucky for me, my mum came to the rescue and woke me up from the vicious dream. When I was stuck due to the bridge built by unknown people using sticky tapes to save other humans, I got stuck to the sticky tape. I was like free food trapped in a spider’s web. Only, I’m not food and that was a nerve-wracking dream. I so do not want to go back there.
I must say though, the dreams I have are exciting and are mostly adventures for me. I still wonder how the brain works when people dream. Why some dreams are black and white while most are usually coloured. It’s pretty interesting, really, as long as you don’t get too caught up with it.
