Just when I thought that things were not going to get better, that we were going to be stuck in this bleak world for quite some time, you surprised me. You really did and I can’t be happier. As much as I hate to admit it, even to myself, things have not been going well with us. I know, what’s new right? But this time round, it was much harder than usual and hearts and feelings were left with deeper scars. Harsher words had been spoken, louder voices were yelled over the line. For a split second, I thought that the moment you said those dreaded words, that was it. It was beyond repair. But today, you proved to me that there is still some hope even when things don’t go the way we want it to. Even after years together, we can never perfect the art of love. Never, there’s still so much to learn from it, and there’s still so much trust that needs to be gained. So how? Do we leave it at that, or do we try to move higher? I guess that’s up to us to decide. US. You and me.
Azri made my day a little brighter today. He came by after work in the evening, and me, who just literally just woke up from sleep, groggily went down to meet him. To which, he presented to me a smile accompanied with a whole box of donuts from Donut Factory! And of course, a feeling which only both of us felt during those seconds of unspoken words. Yes, it has been hard, whatnot with me adjusting to school and him with certain issues. But, thank you for the random thought and gesture. It was enough. Enough to make me smile while I lick the sugar off my lips.
Time, that’s what you said we needed right now. I’ll wait and I hope you will too. Let’s just hope this breather is only temporary.
I have been tagged by philq8.wordpress.com. Get to know more about me! That is, if one wants to.8 Random Facts About Me:
Tag eh? I can’t think of anyone. Anyone who wants to do it go do!!
Finally, after what seemed like such a long long time, me and Kak Dhirah got around to watching Harry Potter and The Order of Phoenix yesterday afternoon. I’m not that much of a Harry Potter fan-I don’t read the books-but I do get excited every now and then about Harry Potter. Due to the fact that I didn’t read any Harry Potter books, I was left quite lost during certain parts of the movie, and as a result, I had to ask Kak Dhirah what this and that meant. Honestly, the movie was alright and not such a let-down like how many claimed. Well, but maybe its just me since those who are the real Potter fans should know better since they can compare between the original text and the movie. Kak Dhirah did mention that the movie was very very simplified as compared to the books. But what do I know eh? Next up: The Simpsons!!
After the movie, me and Kak Dhirah met up with the rest of the family and we headed on down to Eastpoint to get Mak’s spectacles done. KFC for dinner and it was off for home. Later on at night, we went to my aunt’s house for a get-together-cum-berkat wrapping session. My uncle is getting married in a few month’s time and hence, we were all-not all, mainly just me-obliged to help. For the berkat or door gifts, the soon-to-be-married couple bought mini vases from ikea. The idea was to wrap it up nicely and that’s about it. Wrapping the door gifts while watching Die Hard on the telly and chit-chatting the night away.
We completed at 12am plus this morning and even so, there were still a few more boxes of mini vases to be wrapped. Save it for another day cause my fingers were already cramped. Getting married is hard work, really.
NTU Freshman Welcome Day was held at the Nanyang Auditorium earlier on today. The highlight of the whole event was most probably when we all were asked to don the blue robe while reciting the NTU Honour Pledge. It was uber cool despite the fact that I got an XXL. Refreshments afterwards but there were waaayyy too many people and lets just say we were too lazy to queue our asses up. Hence, me and two other GESL members headed on back to NIE to grab lunch.
GESL group meeting at The Cavern to finally get our work done for our costume for the Project Runway NIE show coming up this National Day. Our costume’s kinda unique, I have to admit, cause it represents the different flavours and attractions in Singapore, sewn together. I had the privilege of painting the satay and kampong picture. Not bad for an art idiot like me. Our costume is coming together and so keep an eye out for it when it comes sashaying down the runway!
The timetable is out and as compared to my other peers, I’m quite fortunate despite me still having a five-day school week. School starts promptly at 8.30am everyday and the latest lesson I have ends at 1.30pm. I’m particularly fond of Thursdays cause its just Malay all the way with no education studies lessons. Thank god my time table is rather appropriate and thus, I’m able to slot in tuition and whatnots. On a plus note, since I’ll be having quite some time on my hands, Bapak has agreed to sign me up for my driver’s license! Anytime soon now:)
My locker padlock is being a bitch. Oh well, that’s school.
I am fully aware that this place has been lacking of updates. I have a perfectly good reason for that. No, I am not abandoning this blog altogether, its just that I have been really caught up with school’s orientation week. There’s just so much that I want to ramble about but, as usual, I just can’t seem to find the right words to truly describe how I feel about it. So, here goes…I’ll try my best.
The Freshman Orientation Camp held from 28 to 30 July was real blast:) From the start to the end. Initially, I thought that it was going to be just another camp but boy, was I wrong. And I’m glad I was. The theme of this year’s BA/BSC camp was ‘whoduniet?’ Based on the concept from the Cluedo board game. We had various activities ranging from Amazing Race around Singapore, wet games, station games, performances, cheers, fright night and such. It was not disappointing and let’s just say that there was an added bonus for me that made the whole camp a bit better for me. *winks*
So far, school’s just been full of talks and introductions. Like today was the Director’s Welcome at the Nanyang Auditorium. Lesson officially starts next week and I’m anxious to know how it’ll all be like. Just praying that I’ll manage to fit in and get the swing of things fast enough. As for friends, things have been looking up. Meeting new people and characters turned out to be good.
I guess that’s it for now. No pictures cause I didn’t bring my camera during the camp. I’m just glad that the memories are still etched in my mind. Here’s cheers to a new beginning.
