Mentally challenging moments in IPDA

Like Dumbledore's pensieve, this is where I will extract some of my memories, little instances that I remember vividly and smile. =)

and ROFL excuse me if the way I type sounds hoity-toity..:P

I walk the length of my very quiet room. Emily is over at her grandmother's place for the weekend and the silence I am left with is deafening. I sit down on the bed and lean against the wall. I get up from my bed and shut down the laptop that has been playing songs for the past three hours. I sit on the floor and stare at the walls. In my head, I feel like vomiting and screaming at the same time. I get up and walk towards the door. Hearing screams outside makes me yank the door open. Nothing. No one. The distant screams come from somewhere on the ground floor. Peeking over the balcony, I see a group of girls sitting around on the badminton court below having a screeching time it seemed. Suddenly feeling stupid and alone, I retreat into my room.

My stomach growls. It is 8pm. The cafe would be buzzing with laughter and good humour. More importantly, it would be full of people. I frown angrily at the fact that there was no one to call down to eat with me.

THE ODD PARTY

We met Alena today. Meeting up with Alena is always interesting, so its safe to say that today was a very interesting day. I would love to launch into the details of our meeting with her, but am afraid it will cause intolerable boredom on your part. I will however blog about my communicative skills. You see, today provided the perfect exhibit for me to look back on and reflect.

We WERE an odd party, I'll admit that. There was Alena, Viola, Aaron, Patricia, Jacinta, Marc (bro) and myself. This wasn't the usual group, and despite thinking that conversation would be forced the whole time,I was wrong. Why? different people whose current affairs we knew next to nothing about. It was easy as hell to ask Aaron what he was doing now, Viola how college was, and Alena what her plans were for next year. We ended up laughing a lot. After eating, Jacinta's cards saved the moment of blurness where we didn't know what to do with ourselves. KURAP was highly entertaining and we were laughing like crazy bums...

I noticed that before anyone can ask how I'm doing, I always ask the question first so that they have to do the talking. Immediately after they answer, I ask some other question that requires an explanation, so that again I escape..hehe...heh,...haih...idiot..

Sunday, 6 December 2009

Opening my eyes that morning, every morning is a challenge. I wonder momentarily if all newborn babies feel the same sense of annoyance....probably not...exactly. First, there is the getting used to the light...then, the painfully acute awareness of eye crust in the eye after I try to shut them, which makes me snap them open again, and as I slide my fingers to get the crust out, my eyes begin to water as they always do, but by then I'm awake.

The new bed I've inherited does not do much for my posture. The mattress sinks in the middle and i wake up to a horrible back ache. As Laura so clearly pointed out, I no longer lived here. My home is in Kedah and Klang, a sort of holiday-home, making me a guest. A year ago, my parents bought me a bed, solid wood not chipped. Since i moved to Kedah, this bed has been occupied by Laura Ann and this forces me to go for the old creaky one against the wall.

I check my phone for the time. 11.30pm. Crap, thats half the day gone. Wait, I have nothing to do. There are 17 steps that make up my staircase. I used to count it everyday when I was younger just to make sure it was 17. On the tenth step I realize i left my specs on the bed. It is moments like these that I wished we lived in a single-storey house.

Im aliveee! *gruntss*

I'm home again and have a lot to do! For starters, driving...urgh it's more daunting than I expected...but I have to do it or I never will!!!...and then there is planning how I want to start out next year. NO I'm not missing IPDA...urgh, but I'm just looking forward to next year and all the activities we are going to do.

You know how everyone has A subject, something that they OWN or is their THING. I want it to be Literature. so I'm catching up on my reading now. Currently reading Jhumpa Lahiri's "The Namesake." I started Maugham's "of Human Bondage" but took a break reading that...heavy not to mention slow-moving and dreary stuff man!

hung out with them a lot as well!...hmm there was the mamak the other day, with Shalini, Elizabeth, and Mingke apart from the two bums i see almost on a daily basis. lol:p.

then there was Twilight with siblings, pat, jes and Darren. YAWNNNN for twilight though!...

Recently badminton with pat, jes, shalini, jes brother Ashok, yean may, yi chien, song and cindy. That was fun. Hadn't seen Yean May in ages...looking tan from all the games of volleyball she played..

In between, i attended two book fairs and one wedding. Quite busy huh!

NOT forgetting, my dental this thursday. Still have them on. the braces i mean.

ss exhibition

YOU would be glad to know, that I finally made it home from Deepavali Night. After changing out of the punjabi suit into my convent tshirt and trackies, i made my way all the way to the JPP building, a ten minute walk from my hostel. my team mate Hafiz was there and some girls and guys from the SM2 class. Hafiz connected his phone to his two speakers, and music was positivelyblastingoutofthem!!!!!!!!! it was liek a party... at first....

then sleepiness caught up with me, and drowsiness set in, but i had to finish it. Later, Joey and Syafwan joined the party. Sin ni as well. Joking around, and talking seemed to help.

deepavali night

So weeks of meetings conducted in Tamil, paid off...and Deepavali night was a success. I made a good effort for the Indian dance with Emily.
Emily wore a saree and looked like a bride with gold earrings and the forehead dangly thing, and i looked...well...less glam. I wore a punjabi suit. Emily's, that she lent me. I was SUPPOSED to wear a saree, but some things happened and there was none for me to wear.

Anyway, I disliked being there among all of them, disliked my circumstance throughout the "party", and disliked every proceeding from my miserable dance, to the silly open dance floor. I couldn't wait to get back to IPDA (it was held in Kolej Komuniti). The next day was to be my exhibition and yes, i had not done jack shit about my boards and posters or banners. NOTHING. All i did was to get them printed earlier that day. My mind was so far away from "bhangra-ing" I couldn't even pull my signature, "clapping movement" on the dance floor.

Shalini and Vina said they felt really alone throughout the whole party because everyone had their own clique, and sat holled up at one table. i couldn't agree more. those two left early on. They called a taxi. I almost felt inclined to follow, but then something told me, that even worse than my painfully long face, would be my leaving so early. So i stayed on and stared at my phone..

where was I? oh yea staring at my phone, willing a message to appear. and one did!...more bad news, Mei Mei, my group member, telling me that our booth was by far the ugliest and her class teacher was starting to babble. then Marlene called. and i prolonged the conversation so much, she got annoyed.

liza: so tomorrow exams (one question at a time)

marlene: ah yeah

liza: mmm

marlene: yah, so oka..

liza: oh hey what exam tmrw?

marlene: science

liza: oh laura ann also right?

marlene: yah..u want to talk to mummy?

liza: erghh ok bye...

*stare* *stare* stare*

*dial*

liza: ah mummy

mummy: yah hi liS. whats up, i heard you performed, and qom tells me you have an exhibition coming up tomorrow. hows that going, ready?..what are you doing now? ate already?
*what a waste of questions, shooting them all at once. i'm bound to miss a few...and the conversation is greatly shortened, thanks very much MOTHER.

liza: haha...(let me be agonizingly detailed in my answering)

so after i poured out how I absolutely abhorred my current situation but couldn't come home, coz i was relying on THEIR transport, mother said

mummy: then come out of there lah LIS, come off early..

liza: sighhhhh....*repeats transport issue*

then suddenly, mummy: ok LIS i'll call off now

wait wait wait!...HERYO, back inside i went and smiled my heart out....

JACINTA'S BIRTHDAY

So yeah recently it was Jacinta Lopez birthday and we tried (but failed due to overly complex plans) to surprise her.
BUT heres how it all went down.

I was up North..heheh Kedah...and was worrying about this bums bday. Pat and Yean May were too i guess, coz Yean may msgd me.

yean may: lizamaria raphael parrikal. lol. what are we going to do for Jes birthday?

i was more concerned about what gift to get her. You see, i am selling crystal bracelets. LOL and thought that would be the ideal nay the PERFECT gift for her. then my roommate started selling ONE drop Perfumes, inspired by celebrities and i wanted to get THAT. but anyway, i hadn't tasted tom yam in a while, so when yean may asked, my reply was

liza: no need to surprise la, we jus go to have tom yam steam boat in a restaurant. any other ideas?

may: i was thinking TGIF.

liza: too far for eliz. her parents wont let. nvm. talk to pat first.
*****************

little did i know that Yean may thought steamboat was freaking lame. but later when she discussed with Pat, they both bang-ed me. LOL....

pats idea was sunway Lagoon then TGIF

pat: so i was thinking we tell darren to take her to sunway lagoon, say its with his friends, then its us instead!!! then we lepak in TGIF. they do the birthday thing.

liZA: ermm...far...la....wait wait sunway lagoon?? then TGIF? the pub?....money doesnt grow on trees la nut!!! (plus thinking of the Crystal bracelet)

pat: its not a PUB lah dumbass, its a restaurant. anyway, we dont eat alot in TGIF. you and i share. we eat a heavy breakfast before going....

liza: hmm..yea okla...

RISING ACTION
*******************

CONFLICT

Jacinta goes to padang at night, decides to swing on the monkey bars. Someone said he would catch her, so Jes lets go, and cracks her shins on the platform thingy. jes is rushed to hospital and gets both her leggies bandaged.

******************************

no sunway lagoon. PHEW/ala.../haiyo pity her/now what to do/SCMT!!/darren DO NOT reveal anything!!

just TGIF, but the subang one. coz it was more convinient.

ATTENDANCE
1) liza
2) pat
3) yean may
4) dhanya
5) yi chien

+jes and darren

jes guessed something was up though and surprise was LAME...but the food was good. pat and i ended up eating our own meals. yean may ordered a beef dish and could not eat beef, so she exchanged hers with pat's. lol. The TGIF guys did they're thing, flashed and gave jes a slice of birthday cake.

then we went bowling in pyramid.

then we went to jes house and pat and i slept over. kua kua kua.

PLAYING DRESSUP






For those of you who don't know, i have an older brother, Bertrand, a younger bro and sis, who are twins, Marc and Marlene, and a younger sister after that, Laura Ann. I'm eighteen and we're all two years apart. Growing up, we were each others best friends, until the realms of school, and peers hit us one-by-one andpulled us away and apart.. apart and away. Still, now one memory is all it takes to get us reminscing about the good old days, "children's meeting" on the bottom bunk of the double-decker bed with the blankets around as curtains, LASSI instead of LEGO, Marlene's feared warpaths, scribbling on the walls behind the sofa. I have never been WITHOUT the jing-bang as Jacinta once put it (i told her only i could call them tht).

A few months ago, I made the biggest decision of my life to date, and moved to Kedah to learn how to become a teacher. An English language teacher. I do not regret my decisionbut it physically ripped me away from that comfort zone, the "marlene, lend me your shoes"-"marc stop accidently wearing my shorts"-"lauraann gimme a sip"-"cheta answer the phone plese" zone that is. It was as if, there was some kind of invisible void, space, HOLE...no more silly arguments, no more sibling humour, no more borrowing shoes!!! For once in my life, I understood how it felt to be an only child. Then again, maybe not because I knew the joy of having siblings, an only child did not. What you don't know can't hurt you. They weren't missing anything, I had it robbed from me. (dramatic I know).

Coming home for term break cum Raya was nothing short of bliss for me, eventhough it had only been a month since i last came down. Just sitting around all day was enough. We didn't have to go for a fancy dinner. We did not have to go out at all, or do anything special. Just being around my siblings again was ecstacy enough. Random conversations about their life brought a quirky unexplainable smile to my face. Watching them squabble made me itch to join in..just for fun! so i batuapi-ed alot.

One day, i rummaged through my dad's old clothes and came across a smart old shirt, rejected by his own sons because it was too short. I tried it on. I liked it. Cheta came into the room and laughed. We saw a pile of papa's old jeans and held them up for size. Both of us tried them on one-by-one (there were about ten pairs). On him they were rather loose, but fit hiim perfectly lengthwise. On me, they were snug (bugger) but ruggedly baggy at the ends. Laughing harder, we tried more, and even picked out a few that would work out, with the right tops. Papa was baffled because he had been trying for two years to pass down his things to Cheta and Marc but they refused. (pat on my back). I gave the shirt i tried on earlier to my brother, who liked it (no surprise there) and that wrapped up our little dress-up session for the night. Priceless.

And so in the next few days, I will try to make time for them, as well as my friends. How? cutting coconuts open for Marlene, listening to Marc, manja-ing Laura, and hanging with Cheta. Thats all they really need. :P

How do you say "no I don't want to "??

My friends call me out to a silly party organised by a friend. I would rather try to lick my elbow. How do convey this idea to them, avoiding the "ouch" factor?
do I

a) go anyway
b) say my parents did not allow me to
c) just tell them i do not want to go


Before my esteem took a growth spurt, I fell into category a. I was an unassuming people pleaser. "yea ok" "sure *i hate her* but yea i'll share money to buy her that"

next i went through the wth-they-can't-make-me-go stage. if asked, my brain worked overtime thinking and enqueue-ing a host of ideas. i would say
"my parents DEFINITELY won't allow, but i'll ask" then I won't bother
"I have to go to my grandmothers house"
"my uncle from sg.long is coming to visit"

Finally, i have reached the no-i-don't-wanna-go stage. i like this.

for those who are still stuck in the my-parents-won't allow stage, get out of there. saves a lot of people the annoyance.

or at leasssttt make it believable.
you are on break
you are asked to play futsal in the evening
YOUr parents won't let????.....come onlah. ppfffft...

crazy insane or insane crazy.

holiday day 6

well, like we planned, i did go out to subang parade with the sibs, AND purchased two blouses, but sadly the blouses did not come home with us tonight. dont know who to blame... hehe, ah whatever lah, too tired too get annoyed...

TODAY, i sent a text message to the HEP people from IPDA, asking if the putrajaya thing got cancelled, praying it was, knowing it wasnt.
its not cancelled which means, tomorrow is my last day in klang.

HAVENT PACKED MY BAGS...(no surprise there)cant blame me innit, i thought i was surely going to have a longer holiday...

Tuesday, 25 August 2009

HOLIDAY day 5

i did absolutely NOTHING. except watch csi.

Somehow everyone from my class (in kedah) is asking me if putrajaya is still on. maybe coz i live in selangor, they think i'll pop my head out the window, and see how merdeka preparations are going on...in putrajaya

IM NOT SURE. did you receive a phone call from IPDA? no? neither did I. we'll all go to PUTRAJAYA then. but tis nice to keep in touch. :P

HOORAH,

--> my dental appointment is in september, which is not too far off.

--> tomorrow morning will be spent shopping in subang parade, with my siblings. i dunno why subang parade, but wth...=~)

--> thursday hopefully will be spent sweating in taman rakyat with yean may, sock mun and yi theng (whom i havn't seen in ages) and bryan.

oh yeah did some major picture hunting for the mini exhibition on counter culture (tht i regret choosing). wish i had picked popular culture instead. WAIT. NO I DONT. we will make it work!!...semangat. hmm....why did i leave all my home work in ipda??...why??...all of it...sigh..why...(hey that rhymes)

speaking of rhymes
for our first literature lesson we were asked to compose a poem, with a piece of nature as a theme.

mine was about the forest, i can't type the poem coz i forgot it, and all my books are in Jitra. (anticlimax)
BUT..
it went something like,
the forest growls and smells minty fresh, and is crunchy like a kit kat bar...
(no none of it rhymed)...

this H1N1 thing is getting serious back in IPDA. its all anyone ever talks about. two of our students were confirmed with it. and the baskets are still not closing!

when i came back here, nothing, no ones wearing masks. oh but they're all coughing... but no masks, oh well...me too!..
i promised my class mates over there, that i'd bring back soem cool books for them to read...and am also going to smuggle some movies (ones that we no longer watch lah) to kedah.

father has asked me to get a guitar there, instead of taking the one here. wow! oh wait...my own money i suppose. no problem.

KLANG AT LAST

Klang at last. what an adventure.

when Putrajaya was cancelled, i thought i would just stay in Jitra. save myself the trouble of rushing to buy a probably sold out ticket to KL.

next morning i felt like going out, happened to go to the bus terminal, and there was a ticket for a bus leaving n twenty minutes, so i got on it. wohoo. THEN i told my father. my mother was so shocked when i appeared at the door, so that was good fun surprising her!! heheh.

next day, was mingke's bday surprise in Yean May's house.haha

as the guests arrived, no one noticed i was there.

exhibit A

alex and bryan walk in

im sitting on the couch

sitting and smiling

they walk straight into the kitchen as if the party is inside there. i'm still smiling.

three minutes later, AFTER jacinta MENTIONS IN PASSING that im here, i hear some screaming, and HAH?!?!?!?s
THEN the buffaloes run out into the hall, shouting that im unnoticeable , and no one would see me and im like wall flower. and i say yeah hi.....jeeez

exhibit B

mingke walks in, and everyone says happy birthday, and i wait for people to keep quiet to say happy birthday.

everyone: mingke!! happy birthday!! yea!! hahah

liza: haha yea happy birthday

mingke sits down looks around. (i think has a drink)

and doreen says, "whos beside me??"
and THEN she screams....jeeezz...i planned to blend in but not into oblivion...

well we played twister, people cheated of course, im not mentioning any names lah, thats not my style, but bryan was just trying to get revenge for penang i guess. sigh so i lost secara rela lah...

then we played this truth thing whre you drink if you;ve experienced what the speaker mentions.

FOR EXAMPLE
ALEX: ive never been clubbing

if you have, you take a sip of the drink. then everyone knows you've been clubbing. no questions asked, but of course with certain questions, comes shock and lots of inquiries heheh. thats all im saying...

well my holidays have just begun!

Friday, 24 July 2009

progress

Haha class today was fun, mixing better with the others. Which is good!. A boy called Dzul commented earlier on why I never mixed with the other girls and I didn’t know what to say, so I just stared at him. Hahah retarded. But all that’s gone.

Now, the boys think I’m a bit sarcastic, and the malay girls find me funny to laugh AT! Lol all in good humour.

I want to buy a guitar. There are a few going cheap at the Jitra mall. Hideous colours (blue! Green) but they make music! Have to ask parents permission first.

******************************

Went down for netball training today, we missed all the warm ups, my friend and I, but managed to play for about five minutes. Haha. The senior said, if they have more than enough coming to play, they’ll have to have a team selection, if not then we’re in the IPDA team. Mother… and I just came down for some exercise!

But more importantly there are girls who play futsal here! There is no team and I don’t know if the senior I asked will disregard my enquiry about futsal. Haha she said if they play she’ll message. Anyway if she doesn’t we can always play as a class. There are twelve of us! The girls susah a bit la, and must ask them first.

Our Eng. Lit teacher has urged us to get involved in the upcoming play “The Merchant of Venice” by the TESL seniors, as in paint props or sew costumes. She asked the class and I nodded along with everyone else but planned to ignore the idea and continued talking…then…

Pn. Tengku: Lizamaria what can you do?

Liza: *shit* *none of the above* ermm, well I can….not sew. Hahaha *no one laughs*

Pn. Tengku: yes what Can you do?

Liza: I’ll paint props.

Pn.Tengku: oh so you paint.

Liza: a biit more than I sew, yes.

Pn Tengku: *doesn’t get it* good then, try to get involved.

******************************************

Right now, as long as I can play futsal, I’ll do anything else.


Getting Around


Mode of transport: van sapu!.

For those of you who went “HUH?...snigger” van sapu is sweep van. Lol. It comes all along IPDA (our campus), politeknik campus, and some other campus, picking students up and sending them to places like JITRA MALL….Yawata mall, church masjid, wherever.

I am planning to get a bicycle, the one with the basket….lol! it will really help if we want to buy supplies, or go out for exercise anytime, Yawata mall is cycling distance away. ^.^

Managed to go to church the other day. Thank goodness. It was the only thing bothering me the whole of the first week. We are in Bandar Darul Aman, Jitra, and the church is in Alor Star! 25km away… the van sapu guy refused to take us because there were only 4 of us so he dumped us at a taxi stand. And we followed Pak Mat’s taxi to St. Michael’s church.

We were three hours early for mass! In the end, my dad’s new found friends who happen to live in Jitra came for mass and offered to take us home. Phew!!, God was on our side that day.

The people in that church are very nice. One aunty was so excited, we were becoming new members of the church, she said just come, if transport back was a problem, she would figure it out. “You girls just come!” she said.

Oh well, theres a youth group here as well, and I might as well take part!....lol…

life here

You must be wondering, how I manage living by myself and cooking, cleaning. Well there is no cooking, but there IS a cafeteria that sells quite good food at very low prices. Very low. Like a whole plate of jack for only RM2.00…wicked!!! especially for misers like me!. There is no major cleaning except your own room, that is only if you bother lah. I personally don’t really clean, but my roomie happens to be, just happens to be, a NEAT FREAK…. (It’s a sign from God)….and she bought a broom. I used to just steal(borrow) the broom from a girl all the way on the next floor! Oh yea, then theres washing clothes. Immediately people imagine a mountain of clothes, but really its like two t-shirts and shorts per wash. Soak for half an hour. Lol…and use a brush…voila!…there IS a washing machine somewhere. Must pay….

Down side…..

Friggin green bugs!! Tiny buggers are killing me, AND they bite. They’re attracted to fluorescent light and if they like to land on you first, do NOT swat at them. Its like their sole purpose of life is to come to the light and die. Swarming in at around 7.30pm, after 5 minutes of flying around, annoying the hell out of us, they fall and die. Currently, there are about twenty around me on the floor. I swept the floor half an hour ago!

The weather…inside my room. I just found out that Jitra is one of the hottest places in Malaysia. (ouch bug just bit my ass)…I sleep on the floor now, coz its cooler. If I open the windows, guess who pays me a visit lah. Bruised ribs.

Blazer on Sundays twice a month


Perhimpunan rasmi…minus prefects = chaos. Lol. I don’t talk lah. I just stand straight, but you cant blame the others for yapping. Each perhimpunan, we have to go through so many slideshows of each jabatan, there are 14. Then a few speeches following the grand entrance of men we have never seen and don’t see after that! Then we go to classes.

Its much like college, floating class system, we move to class instead of the teacher coming to us. Bother!! My first perhimpunan rasmi and I forgot my NEW BLAZER that I bought the day before, hahahah…beside me was a senior from the TESL programme

Aftarjit Kaur: Hey you’re from TESL right?

Liza: yea I think so. No one knows for sure yet. Ahhaha.

Aftar: yea your class very weird. Where are you from?

Liza: Klang. Selangor. You…

Aftar: Klang? Oh!! I studied in Convent Klang for 1 year, when I was in standard…

Liza: really I studied there as well. Ermm you,…

Aftar: really!?!? No coz my aunty teaches there

Liza: *omg pn raj*…..Really!>!?!? whats her name

Aftar: RAJ KAUR

Liza: wHATTTT!! Hahahahahahhah she taught me add math for two years! Nice lady. Hahah you look and talk like her.

Aftar: what?..haha my dads sister..

****SMALL WORLD****

Theres another girl from convent in the TESL course. My senior of course. Syamimi. She won tokoh nilam and a bunch of things related to BM during school days. FYI lah.

haha

To all those who went for the Man United vs Selangor match and training.

Buggers!!!!!!!! Arghhhhh!.....jealous

To all those who suddenly adore Michael Owen

Pfft, get a t-shirt and then talk la…..fake….

Hao Qi ehheemmmm talk back all your criticism!!!…. already started to score wei!!

You all are Only allowed to admire…hmmph

To all original Owen fans

Hey guys!....yeah *sep sep* high five*……yeah I know!!! Its great!!

Yea wohoo!, Owen makes it complete…. Buy friggin Beckham back lahhh innit, for nice England squad….haih…

CURED AT LAST


I almost got choked up when my thoughts went to hanging out in taman rakyat the other day with yean may, bryan and soon keat. Then again, as I remembered the water gun fight, and the sending off breakfast in my house. But somehow, no tears would flow, I just felt very positive about where I was, and content. Phew… the end of misery and homesickness…

MESSAGE LOG

From klang.

Marc messaged to tell me he is going for the man united training session. bugger!!!.lol

Messaged shalini to update her with my current situation. Lol. :p she demanded to know why jes had more messages..-.-“

Ouch man! Homesickness hit me hard.

maybe it wasn’t such a brilliant idea to go out everyday with friends leading up to the day I left.

The first night, after orientation at about 12.ooam, we went back to our rooms, which I had to clean and then unpack into while dead tired, and my thoughts kept coming back to klang. Which is fine. Only I kept tearing. Definitely a new experience for me. Breaking down everytime I thought of my family, the water gun fight!, last breakfast with friends, saying bye to them, then I caught a glimpse of the penang hill brochure and broke down again.

When I finally gathered myself together, I looked into my dirty smelly torn (but rugged) nike backpack and saw the sunway lagoon brochure. ARGHH! Started lah again. Never gonna enjoy that shit again!!

I was thinking (worriedly), shit is this gonna happen everyday? Everytime I think of anything related to home? For how BLOODY long??

The second night was worse; I kept tearing during the bloody taklimats, feeling sorry for myself and asking myself WHY THE EFF I joined the programme?? Lol! At the back of my mind by brain was already planning to call mom and dad ask them to take me home, since they themselves said try it first only. Then I thought of all the others there, a lot from Sarawak and sabah, could only go back like once a year because flights were so expensive. Yet here they were enjoying themselves. Anyway while all this was running through my head, the guy giving the taklimat reached the part where if you want to withdraw you have to pay RM31,000 for breaching the contract or some shit. So yea…no..

MESSAGE LOG

FROM Klang

Msged yean may who told me she was friggin bored, but they had internet, and yi chien was going to pick her up later to go to megamall!....i told her we were walking to the pekan later…

Messaged bryan while lining up and listening to the idiots give a speech. Bryan is ALONE and eats lunch in the toilet by himself. if someone reads this, please help…

Marc and marlene messaged. Ahhh…I VENTED like crazy. They were replies FULL of profanities regarding everything.

That afternoon we met our mentor, which is like a class teacher. And she was so nice it was unbelievable. AND she speaks English, not the half baked half in malay. Bear in mind I hadn’t even registered at the time, because everybody kept saying “oh okay..kamu ermm buat tomorrow lah”. But my mentor even offered to Photostat jack for me! Yay very nice lady. She said we’re in the TESL programme. But I dunno. Apparently its damn fun! Though there are going to be numerous assignments if you like it, you’ll have the time of your life!

The adventure begins!!!

I am going to stay alone!!!.....for the first time!!!

We left (finally) at around 1.30 pm for penang where we would spend the night. There was a lot of forms to fill, and the time for registration the next day was not known!

The next day, I was getting so tensed up coz we needed to friggin leave!!! If we were going to REACH kedah( let alone Jitra) that evening.

We reached the campus, and my emotional status was such a MESS, coz they asked us to hurry up and find the room, and then go for the taklimat, LATE then the actual registration had closed, so we could do it another time! There wouldn’t be another time!!...my parents were leaving lah EFFERS, what the hell was I supposed to do.

With all this last minute stress, I thought I DEFINITELY WONT cry later when I have to say bye to my parents

I was wrong.

Finally we said goodbye, (sob sob) tears all around. Leaving them for like EVER. My dad was going to drive all the way back to Klang after dropping his daughter off for EVER. FOREVER.

So that night, I was in the “don’t eff with me” mode coz ALL I wanted to do was THINK about HOME!!! But that bloody night we had orientation. Which I thought was going to be fun fun fun and would help me cheer up you know.

I was wrong.

Bloody seniors ragged the shit out of us, screaming for no BLOODY reason.

Nut senior: “FASTER FASTER!!! WHY you are so SLOW. I SAID WHY ARE YOU SLOW”

Crazy senior: BILA senior Tanya soalan KITA JAWAB. SO KENAPA TAK ADA JAWAPAN??

We had to run rounds, do 50 jumping jacks, and the skipping rope. One CRAZY mother…. punished one girl and asked her to do something that would make all of us laugh. So I’m like okay, all of us laugh la (support). SO WE DID.

Senior: WAH SUDAH PANDAI PURA PURA ketawa ha!!

KENAPA PURA PURA KETAWA!!??....

Liza (under breath): bukan pura pura

Senior: APA? SAYA SURUH… DIA BUAT KAMU KETAWA! BUKAN KAMU PANDAI PANDAI KETAWA. SIAPA TADI PURA PURA KETAWA??

As if we were gonna all put up our hands and say we faked a laugh.

So we did twenty ketuk ketampi.

My bad…

CALL LOG

From Klang,

Yean may messaged asking how everything was. That time I was f*ck*d because we hadn’t reached yet, and I realized I didn’t have a bedsheet. But she told me that in HICT they had to stay in coll for ten hours, and I smiled.

Jacinta messaged asking if I had reached. That time I was more f*ck*d because I was very late, taklimat had started and I hadn’t even found my room.

Elizabeth messaged at night asking how the first official day was. So I vented.

Mr.Alfred replied with a “gambatte yo!” lol

HAHA of course you do. remember how you pat and i used to laugh at Meselah (spelling)? and remember how i started the fight between you and jes *unintentionally* XD, and remember how we sat next to each other every year of our secondary school life? lol! honestly couldnt imagine sitting with anyone else. wei! we've been together for so long i couldnt hate you even if i tried. btw, i couldnt have survived school without you. bloody hell you know everything, what homework, what meeting, what subjects, what exam was on the next day!....and i knew nuts.

SECOND LAST SUPPER?

LOL!. Sunway Lagoon IS fun, even if it is only with two other people. i went today with yean may and bryan, we left at like 9 in the morning and, reached lagoon at about ten thirty after a long breakfast in McDs chatting about random stuff from school, to younger siblings, to c*ck! haha
that was nice...

we started on this buffalo ride, which yean may thought(mistake) was damn chun ass fast awesome . well it turned out to be bloody damn POTONG ride, which for some reason we went for twice...oh yeah coz the other chun ride hadnt opened yet.

the next one was some MINI rollercoaster but you get wet, and it was kinda chun, until we started moving upwards and everyone *me* started falling *slipping* backwards coz

FRONT: liza

MIDDLE: yean may

BACK: bryan


yean may: LIZAAA GET OFF GO UP!!!...hold the bar...BODOH #&*(^@&%!!!....you're falling on me!!!
but i could at least hold on to the rubber thing in front
(btw the metal bars on the side are useless, coz its wet and slippery)

second round

FRONT: bryan

MIDDLE: liza

BACK: yean may

this time theres was no rubber thing infront. so when it got damn steep, and yean may started shouting coz i was falling on her, i just grabbed bryans (easy to tear t-shirt -.-")

bryan: LIZAA DONT ITS GOING TO TEAR!!!!...cannot!!, IT WILL TEAR...

liza: but got nothing,...ahh f*ck....(slipping slipping).....grab tshirt again..

bryan: cannot!!!!...ahhhh!!!!!

liza: motha!!!...ahhHH!!!! sorry yean may!!! ( falls on her)

third round

FRONT: yean may

MIDDLE: bryan

END: liza

ahhhh....so relaxing, you lean on this back rest THE whole time. while yean may screamed her heart out in front *weakling*
when the steep part came, and bryan THOUGHT he was going to slip, i made sure that DIDNT happen, by sticking out my feet in front of me!

then we went to some float rotating, crap.
then continued to the "wet park", lame slides,

then yean may said
"lets go mushroom lets go mushroom!"

*flashback in mc ds*

yean may: i wanna wait for the mushroom to start!!
............................
so im thinking...WHOA what is this mushroom!?!? mUST be chunass right??....
its actually

a piece of shade....with water coming down n the side....
later on yean may wanted to sit on the ferris wheel. while bryan and I were looking out for the scissors ride!...

i thought the ferris wheel would at least move faster than an obese man carrying a pregnant lady, carrying sextuplets!!!!...but it was not that fast la.

finally we got off!, and managed to get directions to the *i prefer calling it the hammer things instead of scissors*
it was pretty chun!!..but by then we were sleepy and FRIGGIN hungry

before that!!!! we tried this pirates revenge ride!!!, ahhh damn chun!!!.....but yean may was not so happy about the whole experience..

but we did that altogether three times...although for the last time we had to force yean may *feel bad*...not!...*im sure secretly she enjoyed it*

pigged out on PIZZA HUT later on, and in the train station, we bumped into pat and one ANG MOH chick beside her>......i couldnt see clearly but from far brown lushes hair, and super honey brown eyes...WAAH...but in the end, it turned out to be my NOT ANG MOH good friend DODO!!...doreen/ tay poh chin/ reen poh chin/

this girl, heh changed A BIIIIITTTT but for the better la....more fun now eh doreen

DOREEN: eh liza *karat accent*....you better go blog about today ..i want to see my name inside..
i read your blog....my name never featured once also....

LIZA: ermm ok, but doreen as if you feature my name a lot of times....just that once when you commented on a fake picture of me, and cleavage...
so THAT was today....

and im now a day away from leaving.

Bloody medical

what AN effing LECEH process.

cheh, had to get up at six, so that i was ready at seven for medical at eight. grateful to uncle Chacko, who managed to get us in early for a medical.

the nurse took my weight, height, and blood pressure. and tested my eyesight.

i thought i would HAVE to do a blood test...haha aids or whatever..

NONEED

but to see the doctor for all the other checkups, like respiratory, ears, mouth, i had to ocome back at 2pm. LECEH part 1

then i went to the dental department. coz there are TWO bloody questions there. do i have cavities?. am i wearing dentures.. but the nurse CANNOT do this simple check...MUST wait for doctor!!!...WTH...2pm

and i have to do a test for drugs. mother...urine test.. i've never done one before. so im all uncomfortable and stuff...XD the nurse said if i do it at the clinic it might take two weeks. CANNOT. so she suggested i do it at a private place. BP lab same row as Jason's tuition center.

i went there.. and this YOUNG MAN doctor dealt with me. "aiyaah!!!"...i thought when i was asked to see him. then he filled in the particulars. testing for Cannabis and Morphine. no expression on his face. he gave me the container. and marked a line somewhere near the bottom.

"fill up to this line"

and i obviously went to the toilet in the morning and dont really need to go anytime soon. so stupidly i say. "'oookaaay what if i dont have any urine"

with no expression, he goes" at least half"

well THATS NO HELP.

three hours later.....*aaaahhhhhh*

haha joking joking

three minutes later
, my bladder apparently regularly stores urine in case of an emergency drug test. the cheeky bugger.

they said it would be ready by four earliest. BASKET!! that means i have to complete the medical another day. coz they wont do it without the drug test. NEGATIVE.

oh yeah! wet for an x-ray as well.

i thought just stand there innit...

"okay miss buka tshirt, buka baju dalam, rantai buka"

and im like HAH!!!! no way!!!!!!!!...motherrr..then there was this horny fat guy next to her, like looking at the forms and stuff, wearing this gown scratching his ass!

"dalam sana ada changing room. pakain gown ikat belakang"

and i'm like" OWHH OKAY...ahhahaha"PHEWW

so it takes about a minute. breathe in- x ray -breathe out

so all the uncomfortable bits are over lah....now i just have to get my dental at two. and collect my urine test results.

sigh maybe no lagoon tomorrow. anyway only three of us were going, sooo... yeaaa....

Klang, Selasa. Sebentar tadi didapati bahawa Liaw Yean May telah ditawarkan tempat di kampus HELP Damansara di bawah tajaan (??) JPA. Dia kini berada di HICT Klang, dan telah menamatkan semester satu. Setelah menerima scholarship itu, dia akan mula balik semester satu bulan Julai, di Damansara di mana orang orang sombong tinggal. Yean May berkata dalam temu bual

Sewaktu di sana, Yean May akan meninggal (bkn mcm itu!) sepupu kesayangannya Bryan Lee di Klang.Dia pula berkata dalam temu bual sambil nangis teresak-esak.

B.Lee: saya ta tau kenapa cousin saya mau pegi. dia tada ckp apa dengan saya pun. sekarang saya apa macam (goyang tangan).
begitu lah yean may!. mau pegi jau jau!. tengok lah nanti, bila pulang saya jadi apek makan sindiri punya..bukan makan saya punya sendiri!..maka sama sendiri saja...

Dan begitulah situasinya sekarang. setinggi tinggi taniah diucapkan kepada Yean May, dan semoga dia berjaya si sana!. kepada sepupunya, TOLoNGlah!

sekian sahaja bagi kali ini, salam mesra. saya lizamaria. jumpa lagi.
