49 Years of Malaysia

Happy Merdeka Day! 49 years seem to be fast, according to my grandma. She's almost 60. Unfortunately, it's been raining since yesterday in Alor Star and I really don't know what happen to the Merdeka parade at Pekan Rabu. This morning was supposed to be a Merdeka parade, but due to rain I think they cancelled it. I just have to wait the news from my friend who joins the parade.

As of me, I just got up and watch the National Merdeka Parade in Kuching, Sarawak. The parade is very colourful and creative. The field show by school students is amazing. Patriotic songs, red, blue, yellow, white etc. This year they chose Kuching as the host for National Merdeka Parade. Last year was Kuantan, Pahang. I hope the choose Alor Star near in the future.

I'm going to Penang at 10AM. Getting a shower now.

Merdeka! Merdeka! Merdeka!

Happy Merdeka Day to all Malaysians out there!!!
Keranamu Malaysia

Congrats to Datuk K and Datin Siti

This is the moment that we've been waiting for. Siti Nurhaliza, also known as Datin Siti Nurhaliza has chose Datuk Khalid Mohamad Jiwa aka Datuk K as her husband. The akad nikah ceremony was held at Federal Territory Mosque in Kuala Lumpur, and wedding reception at the glamorous Kuala Lumpur Convention Center (KLCC) near Petronas Twin Towers. TV3 as the official broadcaster, broadcasted the live telecasts of the akad nikah ceremony and the wedding reception aswell as delayed telecast of wedding reception in Kuala Lipis, Pahang; Siti's hometown.

I saw the wedding reception and it was like a fairytake wedding reception. It totally deserves the title "Malaysia's Wedding of the Year". The key people for her wedding are Datuk Shah Reza, the wedding planner and five Malaysia's top designers including Micheal Ong and Radzuan Radzwill. The reception in KLCC alone costs about half a million ringgits, that is USD135,ooo. Refer to this news.

Since TV3 is the official station for Siti's wedding, RTM and Astro on the other hand tried to compete with TV3. RTM and Astro served Ina and Mawi, another hot ex-couple on the same day, same time but on different channel; RTM1 and Astro Ria. I can't believe that a goverment-owned TV station (RTM) did this.

Congratulation Datuk Khalid Mohamad Jiwa and Datin Siti Nurhaliza.

Holidays are back

For these holidays, I'll be attending the school's extra classes on Friday till Monday, which mean it starts tomorrow. Then, I have one day free on Tuesday. After that, I'm going to KL from Wednesday till Saturday and back to school again on Sunday. The extra classes part isn't that good. But at least, I'm not going to spend the nights at the hostel. I hate it! [refer to this post]

Recently, I got my results back. BAD! As I expected but not what I wanted. 5 As, 2 Bs and 1 C. Can't believe I have to get a C. The C was History with the marks of 53?! Ugh. I'm so stupid at History :P The rests are okay. I only have to worry about History and Geography because these two are the lowest, C and 65 B respectively, but I do have to worry everything cause I DIDN'T GET STRAIGHT A. I'm like 2 marks away from A for Mathematic. The school is dissappointed with all of us because only seven people who made straight A.

I'm currently listening to Utada Hikaru. Her songs are like bomb. So far, for J-Pop genre, I like Utada and Ayumi Hamasaki. They both are cute but I think Ayu is cuter than Utada :D

I knew this is going to happen

Malaysia fines Pussycat Dolls organizers - Yahoo! News

Yes, the link says it all. Duh, like so obvious. They wore skimpy clothes like in their Buttons. I knew this is going to happen from the first time I saw the video [refer to this post].

"The Pussycat Dolls were guilty of performing sexually suggestive routines on stage," council President Mohamad Arif Abdul Rahman was quoted as saying. "In terms of their eye-popping attire, well, there's a lot of proof of that from our sources and the media."
Yep, they were very sexually sexy and not allow of course in Malaysia. They should respect our rules because

The government in this Southeast Asian nation had previously warned Western artistes not to be too "raunchy" so as not to offend local sensitivities when performing in Malaysia.

When Grammy-winning rap-rock band Linkin Park performed in Malaysia in 2003, the Ministry of Culture and Arts warned them not to wear shorts, scream or exhibit raunchy behavior. The following year, Mariah Carey was told to "dress accordingly" for her concert.

Oh well, it's already in past. I hope there will be no such thing as this in future and I didn't know Mariah Carey came to Malaysia?!

New Edited Photos

I just learned few tricks on Photoshop. I've been experimenting with it and I came up with these:

This is me on a ferry ride to Manly Beach and behind me is the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

PMR Trial Exam

This week, I was having my PMR trial exam, about maybe 2 weeks before pre-PMR and 2 months before the real PMR. I just don't understand why they have to make alot of exams before the real one starts. So anyway, the exam, as expected by me would be hard as I could imagine. I made my revisions about a week before it.

The First Day
The exam started with three papers: Bahasa Melayu paper one and two and Science paper one. Bahasa Melayu was okay for me, but I'm not too confident with both. I think I did okay for Science, it was in two languages. So far, so good.

The Second Day
I had three papers: English paper one and two and Science paper two. The first paper for English was basically MCQ paper and essay writing for paper two. I fucked up Science paper two.

The Third Day
Only two papers for this day: Islamic Religious Education and Mathematic paper two. Both are okay except on Math, I flunked locus question. Arrgh!

The Fourth Day
Three papers: History, Mathematic paper one and Geography. On this day we can keep the question papers, which eventually freaked me out. I think I got B for my Geography :'( Plus, I didn't do the last four questions of Math and two questions that I skipped in the back which made up a total of six questions because I was running out of time. History was like bleh (not good).

The Fifth Day
Only one paper for today: Life's Skills. This is the only paper that I think I can score.

Today, they gave us a new timetable. It turns out to be the same which relieved most of us as we don't have to sacrifice our sweet Sunday. Wish me luck on getting the results!
