Life’s simple surprises

Life. Its so filled with subtle surprises that you never tire of getting high just living it out.

Today, everybody was so excited. Even though its not our last paper for the Pre-AS exam, almost everyone (in my class, that is) cannot sit/stand still because we’re gonna be free for almost 5 days after the paper. The session lasted for 1 hour (by jolly, thank goodness almost everything came out from past year paper) so we rushed back to our apartments, grabbed our bags (which were already packed yesterday) and everybody else literally ran to the van, eager to go home. All except me. Make no mistake, cause I’m not going home, and I’m not taking the van. Lol my sister came to fetch me and I’ll be staying here, at her apartment for the short ‘holiday’. So here I am, typing happily away at her laptop, content with the decent Internet connection. Compared to KTT’s ‘Wi-Fi’ which could’ve been a Stone Age technology pioneered by the Flintstones, this is sheer bliss.

Anyway, back to the topic. Life.. sheer bliss.

What have I learned for the past 2 months? The experience, of course, is invaluable.

– I learned to appreciate Physics. (GASP!)
– I learned not to rush into things.
– I learned to think and not let emotions dictate my thoughts. (it could really be disastrous)
– I learned that when people are put together, with the same purpose and same aim, bonds of unbreakable friendship can be forged.

I don’t know how others feel about my last point. Maybe they don’t feel the same way. I have no idea. Yet, whenever I see them laughing, joking about stupid things, enduring the same lectures by the same lecturers, fighting through the challenges together, and whenever I step into a classroom and seeing their faces, I always tell myself: this is where I wanna be. I won’t not trade them for the world. Seriously. There’s this special feeling of attachment I feel for them all. Perhaps it is possible, considering they’re gonna be my pillar of strength for the next 6 years, so far away from home.

I suddenly thought of the guys who live one floor below my apartment. Of the fond memories: where Kian Joo would burst into songs at every fixed intervals and his voice would be heard upstairs, where we would huddle together at the balcony and ogle at girls passing below on the road, where we would joke about stupid things.. Lol.

Life could throw simple surprises at you too. Take for example the fact that Kim Moo Moo sent an e-mail to me. Gosh, she’s one of my best girl pal and I miss her. So imagine my delight and pleasant surprise to see the e-mail. Lol. Even though she’s having an ‘Internet fasting period’ which I think is ridiculous in a biblical sense of proportion.

OMG I forgot to hand in the IELTS assignment to our lecturer. Shit. LOL that’s so totally random.

Back to life’s simple surprises. Oh yeah, a dear dear friend of mine said something just now which was, well, unexpected but it was.. sweet I guess. o.O

Suddenly, life’s surprises don’t seem that simple anymore. 8D I really wonder how on good earth things like that could happen. Maybe I’m not used to it, but who knows what the future holds. o.O

Oh I watched The Dark Knight just now with my sister. I enjoy watching the Joker. For once, a villain on screen had the sheer impact on me that I literally shuddered when he first opened his mouth to speak. Heath Ledger was TOP-NOTCH. I bet my ass NO ONE can beat that stellar performance as Joker. Seriously. He was SUPERB. The only other actor who, in my humble opinion, can exude such character on screen is Johnny Depp. Too bad Ledger is.. gone. *sob* oh yeah, I heard Johnny Depp’s gonna be pulled in to be cast as the next villain in the third Batman film. HELL YEAH BABE!!!! He’s gonna be The Riddler alongside another villain. Christian Bale will be Batman and Sir Michael Cane as the same old lovable butler (they are both awesome in their characters). I look forward to the film.

Speaking of which, I saw the trailer for Harry Potter’s upcoming film. Forgot what’s the name. Then again, I think my enthusiasm for HP has waned somewhat. Not was exciting as before. I demand something that stirs the intellect, or something that is no-brainer yet enormously fun. Nothing of the sort of in-between.

Running out of ideas..

Sometimes, I wonder why I’m here, studying A-levels, enduring it all just to be able to pass and go to Czech. Why medicine? Why? I could’ve chosen accountancy, or economics. I could’ve opted for petroleum engineering when I applied for Petronas. From what I gathered, many of my classmates think I should’ve gone for something business-related, not least due to the fact that I LOOK and TALK like a businessman, which is.. ==” SWT. but but.. why medicine??


No matter what people plan, things turn out to be not exactly the same way they planned it. Like The Joker in the film. He’s the element of Chaos, out of which FEAR itself is created. No planning, no systematic and meticulous organising.. just plain.. headlong, bang boom goodbye. Amazing. Its the same in life. No matter what you plan, things.. never seem to go they way you planned. So it leads on to the thought that, you are MEANT to do something and its etched, somewhere, that its your destiny to tread that path. Karmic laws and the whole shebang, bla bla bla. I won’t go into details.

Then again, why? lol..
